You Took Class, Then Took a Break. How Much Do You Really Need to Do to Warm Up Again?

If you forget about that lasagna you just reheated for even 10 minutes, it may get too cold for your liking. Your body isn't much different. After class, we lose most of our warmth within 15 minutes. So we need to warm up again if we have a longer break before rehearsal or performance. But do we hav

“CITY SIDEWALKS”
FOX KXVA LIGHTED CHRISTMAS PARADE

We officially have an entry in the FOX KXVA lighted Christmas Parade in downtown Abilene. The parade is Tuesday, December 3rd. We have to be in place no later than 5:40 and the parade starts at 6:30 (no parking in the parade line up area). Only Cast members in costume and lights will be allowed to ride in the parade. The theme for this year’s Holiday Parade is “ALL THAT SPARKLES”. If anyone knows how to sparkle its dancers! I don’t have our number yet or other instructions like where to line up.
We have borrowed 16ft trailer we need to decorate (If anyone has access to a longer trailer we could get the large rocking horse pulling the sleigh on the trailer, otherwise we will use just the sleigh). We will be working on the Float at 5:30 at the studio on Monday, December 2nd. This is the Monday and Tuesday immediately following our Thanksgiving Break. I am planning on passing out some of the “Nutcracker” Costumes at this weekend’s rehearsal. It is too early to get a good handle on the weather. Sometimes it’s been very cold and other times it’s been fairly nice. If the weather is cold we need to make sure the children are dressed warmly. I’ll give more info on this when it gets closer. Keep an eye on the Dance, Ltd. – School of Dance page for further instructions.
This is a lighted parade at night so EVERYONE must have battery operated Christmas lights on their person. They can wear Santa Hats but no one may dress as Santa because he is the climax of the parade and lights the large Christmas tree in front of the Civic Center. No jumping on and off the float and no throwing of things from the float.
At the conclusion of the parade we will have to find a meeting point as the staging area will not allow persons to pick of their children there.
Of course there will be no studio classes that evening, Tuesday, December 3rd as we will be at the parade.

Some good info to know.

*This* Is How You Should Actually Warm Up Before Dancing

Some good info to know.

For many dancers, a "warmup" consists of sitting on the floor stretching their legs in various positions. But this strategy only reduces your muscles' ability to work properly—it negatively affects your strength, endurance, balance and speed for up to an hour.

11/06/2019

To students and friends of Dance, Ltd. - School of Dance; Mr Greg Ballard can use your prayers. His mom, Cheryl, is in the hospital and not doing well. Let us lift them up. We know prayers can work miracles. UPDATE: GREG POSTED THE FOLLOWING THIS EVENING: My mother just passed away tonight. Thank you for your prayers and support.
We will continue to support him in this difficult time.

In today's dance world, versatility is key. It's not enough to be a master of one style—even when they specialize in one area, dancers are frequently asked to fuse multiple genres, or step out of their comfort zone for specific projects. With their wide variety of summer programs, Joffrey Ballet S...
