Wow, the summer sure did go fast! We want to take this moment to welcome new students to our studio family and welcome back returning students. We know there are many choices out there, but my staff and I are honored to work with your dancers this year!

We are so excited for the Nutcracker in December and Neverland in June. There is also an opportunity for our dancers to perform on the Carnival Cruise “Elation” to the Bahamas in July! It is very important to stay updated on the news at our studio so please take the time to read your monthly newsletters. Lots of important information is in them. They come electronically, are on our website, and we always have hard copies at the studio.

Our young dancer classes have filled up fast! We have added a few extra classes where we could to accommodate everyone.
