WINTER BLUES- push through the cold weather and winter blues

While we can’t stop the snow from falling, we can help our dancers beat the winter blues by warming them up with dance. The Winter months are the best time to be attending dance lessons since seasonal depression kicks in and there is not as much outdoor time to be had. Dance lessons get you moving, laughing, and make you forget about those icicles outside for just a little while! If your dancer is struggling to push through and come to class, it’s worth the encouragement! If you can just get them in the door, they are going to have a great time and leave happier!

Mark your calendar for your VALENTINES DATE NIGHT and we will take the kids…Friday, February 14thfrom 6-10pm. We have lots of fun Valentine’s Day activities planned for the kids and you can enjoy a night out child-free!  Only $15 per child ($20 for NON-studio members), ages 3 and up (must be potty trained).

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day in classes the week of Feb 10-14th. Come dressed in red, pink and purple dancewear all week!  If you would like to bring a small Valentine for your classmates please plan on 12 (hip hop plan 16).  We also request that you ONLY fill in the FROM portion of your Valentine to make distributing easier. This is optional, just a little fun thing to look forward to! 


We cannot provide proper feedback if we cannot see the alignment of our dancers. Please help us to run an upscale program by sending your child to class in the right attire and proper hair.  STARS reminder that you are required to wear your class outfit each week and your hair in a bun.

The last week of every month is FREE style for STAR classes.  This means you can wear whatever color of dance attire as long as it is appropriate for the class (Leo and tights ONLY for ballet).

Preschool parents please remember those important ballet shoes… It is NOT safe for your dancer to be in her tights.  If shoes are forgotten you will be asked to have your child barefoot.

View a class overview of attire here.


PLEASE remember to send your child in with a pair of street shoes.. We want to keep those ballet shoes looking new and protect our floor!  Also, Hip Hop classes!  PLEASE come in a separate pair of shoes and then change into shoes for class.  Our floor has been wet for the last couple of weeks.  We just want everyone staying safe! 


February Stretch of the Month- Straddle  |  Strength Challenge- Bridge

We are so excited this year to have a “stretch of the month” and a “strength challenge” in our acro/tumbling classes! Encourage your child to work on these skills at home to help them improve even faster!  Be more involved by printing off the at-home practice tracker HERE.


In February our theme is “Me and My Teddy.”  Each class will be focused on spreading kindness and joy. This month we are focusing on:  hopping on one foot, developing rhythm, waiting our turn, Boogie, Twist & Rock’n roll, Tendu, Saute jumps. We hope you can find time to review these elements with your dancer at home.  It is a great way to get EVERYONE moving!! 

To celebrate Valentine’s Day we will be having “Bring a Teddy Bear Day” the week Feb 10-14th. So grab your snuggly friend and bring him to class.  Moms, please help us out this day by remembering Mr. Teddy Bear, he is very important to the lesson plan.  We will use him in preschool dance and tumbling!
