Fall session registration


Please come by the studio Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, September 5 ,6, and 7, from 1pm until 4pm to register your dancer for class. We are located at 1155 Redway Drive in the Solar Suites Building, in Redway, downstairs in the room with the double glass doors. Class levels start with pre-ballet, and go through training for teens. Classes for the youngest students incorporate creative movement, spatial awareness and an introduction to classical ballet steps; older dancers study classical ballet, character dance, contemporary dance, and pilates. All students can participate in two dance productions a year.

Fall schedule ideas

Hi, I hope summer is going well for you! I wanted to touch base with you about a few fall schedule plans.
The most important change is that Nina’s class might be Tuesdays at 3:30. The next level, Dance to Your own Tune, would be Thursday at 3:30.
Mondays and Wednesdays, at 3:30, would be for the next levels, pre-primary and primary, as a once or twice a week option.
Mondays and Wednesdays, from 4:15-5:30 would be for a grade 1 and 2 level class, mostly for grade school aged students, depending on the enrollment.
Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:15-6:15, will be for the teens.
Saturdays are reserved for working on exam syllabus, each level meeting at a different time starting at 9am.
Monday and Wednesday at 5:30 are still undecided. I heard a little birdie whisper that there might be an adult jazz class on Mondays……..
**I would like to start a barre workout class soon, I may have found the right program. It will include some pilates mat work for a warm-up and some stretching at the end.
At this time, I plan on teaching it Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I am thinking 9am after kids are dropped off at school.
What do you think?
So, nothing is solidified, this schedule is a rough draft version until we have a teacher meeting early August, but I wanted to get my thoughts out to everyone.
