Recital update: Well, I just found out that this year Memorial Day week end happens to be the same week end I have scheduled the recital! May 22, 23, 24, 25! Then, the following weekend is Summer Arts Fair, May 30, 31. We are going to have to review this information and see if we need to reschedule the recital. I will be attending a Feet First Board meeting next week and we will all be looking at how this can work out as they are also planning a spring performance weekend. One possibility is the week end of June 5,6,7.
Will you and your family be around Memorial Day week end? Please let me know.
Welcome back to ballet class, everyone. I hope you had a great vacation. This session we are focusing on perfecting all of the Royal Academy of Dance class work exercises and dances we started learning in the fall. We will end the session with assessments and parent observation days of the work to celebrate the progress everyone has made this year. Some students will be participating in the exams offered by the Royal Academy of Dance. Each year I hope to include more students in the RAD exams as I become more familiar and comfortable with the process. While these exams offer the students an opportunity to perform their work for someone from the Academy, it is a way for my teaching skills to be assessed as well, helping me to see where my strong points are, as well as showing me areas that need more development.
After spring break at the end of March we will begin the spring session. The two areas of focus will be to introduce students to new steps and exercises from a higher level, and to prepare for and present our spring recital, the week end of May 22nd. The teens will also perform at the Summer Arts Fair.
Thank you all for joining SoHum Dancing!
