2020 SUMMER SKILLS CAMPS

Your dancer will work on skills used in lyrical, contemporary and jazz styles of dance. They will get an introduction and/or work on several kinds of leaps, turns and jumps. They will begin each day with flexibility exercises so that they can get their splits, heel stretches, and good extension while perfecting their skills. These techniques create muscle memory so that, as they continue to work on skills, it gets easier and easier to perfect. They will also incorporate these skills in combinations with music. They can wear comfortable clothing.

All dancers:

Please check our YouTube channel for posted classes! I post videos every class day (though sometime it takes hours to upload). Everyone should be all caught up when we finally return to the studio.. hopefully within the next few weeks!

03/23/2020

Good Morning!!

I pray all of you are quarantining and taking good care of yourselves!! I cannot stress enough that I absolutely cannot wait to be back to "normal"! I will never take for granted coming in to teach classes, going to the store, the gym, etc... And, I miss every single dancer and parent :)

I have uploaded, to YouTube, review videos for the classes on Monday (except 7:30 - I am working on your's). I will upload Tuesday's tomorrow and Wednesday on Wednesday and so on. Thursday's practice videos will be a little later because Abby and I are going to video them together. Becca and I are videoing clogging this afternoon. Greg is videoing Hip Hop as well.

Honestly, I have had to get my brain around how they should look. I am not comfortable videoing myself.. they are not ideal.. haha.. but it is a start!!

I will work on editing music and getting it sent via text sometime soon. Actually, this is a good thing for me to utilize YouTube because we need practice as it gets closer to recital during a normal year. It is an excellent tool for us to use in years to come.

If you have any questions at all, please contact me!! I am really praying April proves to be a much less intense month, except for getting ready for recital :)

If anyone needs anything at all during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to me!

Hey folks, Iโ€™m finalizing the DVD of the dance recital. If youโ€™re still interested in purchasing a DVD, or a link to the live stream (unedited), Iโ€™m taking orders until Friday. Message me for details on payment.
We truly enjoyed the recital last night. I am so proud of my granddaughter, Bella Parsons, she did a great job. We also loved watching Tyler Jester dance, he was mesmerizing. It is hard to believe he has only been there 5 years. You put a lot of hard work into this recital and it showed from the costumes, routines & music. Oh almost forgot, the Hip Hop & cloggers were AMAZING. Great job Paige!!!
