This past month we were able to support the Murray, Cottonwood, and Jordan Drill Teams by having our company dancers perform at their year-end showcases. These performances have all been positive experiences filled with love, support, fun, high energy, and excitement! The dancers just love being in front of an audience, and you could see it on their faces. We are so grateful for the opportunity to shine on stage out in the community.

UNDERWEAR TO CLASS
It’s that time of year we would like to remind our female dance and ballet/jazz classes about our underwear rule… Female dancers don’t wear underwear they wear tights. We don’t wear underwear under our swimsuits and a dancer doesn’t wear underwear underneath her leotard. I need your help NOW before the concert gets here. Let’s start working on it now so we don’t have panty problems at the concert. THANKS!!

COMPANY AUDITIONS & SUMMER SCHEDULE
Mark your calendars with the 2022-2023 Studio 56 Dance Center Company summer dates! Auditions will be June 21-23. Learn more about our Performing Company HERE
WHY WE OFFER COMPETITION TEAMS: First, it’s important to remember we believe dance is invaluable to ALL of our students, no matter how many classes they take! Our company team’s purpose is grounded in our mission to provide an increasingly comprehensive education for those who want a deeper dance experience. And while there are many reasons why we’ve chosen to offer a company team here at Studio 56 Dance Center, we can sum them all up with three overarching objectives. Read about them HERE.
We are now accepting registration for Fall 2022-23 preschool! The benefit to our preschool is that it INCLUDES our dance and tumbling classes! Get it all done in one! There is no reason to sign up for separate dance, tumbling, and preschool programs! We offer it all and have the BEST TEACHERS around! Little Learners ignites a child’s mind and awakens a passion for learning and movement that will last a lifetime. www.littlelearnersutah.com
