Wishing you and your family the very best this season. We enjoy the opportunity to work with your family and love teaching your children!

We need your help! For every 5-star review you write on our Google profiles, you’ll be entered into our drawing to win $100 in tuition next month! We appreciate all your support! Thanks in advance!

THANK YOU!

We want to thank all of you for the wonderful Christmas gifts and thoughtful cards. We also want to thank all of you that helped with the pajama and book drive.  We had an amazing turn out this year! I am sure we brought smiles to several faces.  Thanks for making this possible!

WELCOME TO OUR STUDIO FAMILY

We would like to give a warm welcome to all the new faces.  It is open enrollment time.  Spots are going fast.  If you know of an aspiring dancer send them our way! Pick up a “Care Enough to Share” referral card in the waiting room and get $ off!!

Our next big show will be our YEAR-END CONCERT.  The concert is scheduled for June 20th @ Olympus High with more details to follow.

We will start learning routines the first of March.  At this time we need all the parent support we can get.  Please be practicing with your child at home and be involved in what is going on in class.  Watch for our theme announcement in February!

PERFORMANCE PACKAGE

For the concert, we have created an all-inclusive package for the best experience possible. We have a bundle package that takes care of everything for you! We feel that this eliminates surprise expenses and makes for a much more enjoyable concert experience.  Included in this bundle is your costume (purchase or rental), concert fee, show video download, class picture, concert t-shirt and shorts (tumbling costume), tights, accessories, concert award, and more! We have NOT included shoes but we do offer you a convenient option to purchase them at the studio.  By providing larger guaranteed quantities to our suppliers we can get better prices for everyone.  

Consent for the concert was done on the back of your membership paperwork at the time of enrollment.  If you haven’t registered it’s not too late CLICK HERE for our online form. 

HIP HOP CLASSES- SHOE POLICY

With winter weather here, we need to remind you that we CANNOT have wet, salty, muddy shoes stepping onto our dance floor. Please carry your hip hop shoes into the studio and change into them before you enter the classroom.  You will be asked to dance with no shoes if you don’t have a dry pair! Thank you!

In January our theme is “I need a hero.”  Each class will be focused on heroes in our community.  This month we are focusing on:  moving hips from side to side, following directions, echappe, step touch with jump, angry face.
