Hello Dance families!!!!

Wanted to check in with everyone! Please let me know if you haven’t been added to the private page for each class. Dance videos have been posted and we plan to post more things soon! We surely miss everyone and hope we can meet again soon!

Recital 2020: our recital date of May 17th is being postponed. We are so sad but with the current situation it just isn’t going to work.

I am in constant contact with the faculty, photographer, videographer, light Technician, and others to make sure we can get everyone and everything rescheduled! I will let you know ASAP!!!

We pray that our dance families are staying safe and germ free! As always if you need us or have any questions please feel free to contact me!

Hello Dance Family!!!
Several questions have be asked so I wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page!

1. Tuition—- we understand this is a hard time for everyone, including the studio having to be closed! We are holding tuition at a standstill until we are able to safely get back into the studio (which I hope is sooner rather than later). We will then pro-rate the weeks we have remaining!
2. Recital—— our recital IS NOT CANCELLED!!!! We are praying fervently for this recital and pray that we will be able to continue as planned! However, I have already been in contact with UGA to discuss future dates in case we are unable to start back dancing soon! We do want to make sure all our dancers are prepared for their grande performance!
3. Deadlines——- yes it is time for many things to be turned in, AD’s, Narwhals, trophy, t-shirts, flowers etc... we will be extending this deadline for when we are back at the studio!
4. We will continue to send more videos and such so the dancers can practice. Please use some of your “PE” time at home to listen to their dance music and practice their steps! We love our dance family and pray for everyone’s safety!!!

Hello from Mrs Mallory

It is with great pre caution that I come to announce that we at Mallory Ward School of Dance will be closing for this coming week of March 16-20. Under recommendation of Gov Kemp along with the many members of our medical community it is best to decrease the potential spread of germs! I urge our dance family to adhere to these pre cautions and PRAY for this to pass quickly! We for sure want to help it pass so we can finish our dance year with our RECITAL 2020.
Last week most dancers and/or their family was able to get a video of our dances, PLEASE take a few min to rehearse your dances and maybe even use it as fun family time to get some extra energy out! We understand that this is a time of worry and unknown but we pray everyone with stay home and stay safe!
We realize this week was to begin our Early Registration for the coming year and also a time to celebrate with bringing our friends. We plan to reschedule friends week and we will extend our Early Registration’s for 2020-2021!!!
Please check in with our studio’s Social Media to keep the latest updates!

Thank you for your understanding from all the staff of MWSOD!!!

General information

Carolyn Ellis School of Dance was established in 1973. Miss C was the Queen of dance for 42 years as the owner/operator. Continuing with the tradition is Mallory Ward as the owner and operator. Growing up inside the dance studio from the age of 2 and continuing until graduation, Mallory has always had a passion for dance. During her years of being a dance student Mallory had the opportunity to dance in many places such as NEW YORK at the MACYS THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE, DISNEY WORLD, UNIVERISAL STUDIOS, SEAWORLD ORLANDo, NUMEROUS DANCE COMPETITIONS AND MORE. Joining the CESOD staff in 2004 was a dream come true. Teaching dance is second nature and comes from the heart. This year our studio will celebrate our 47TH glorious year of teaching dance in a fun filled family oriented atmosphere. Our dreams of offering dance to many have come true time and time again. We see the smiles and hear the giggles of dancers celebrating expression and creating movement inside the four pink walls. Ginny Stone Webb Studio Manager Our studio relies on many to support us through out our year. The talents of Ginny Stone Webb are wide in range as she handles the major responsibilities of office duties to calming the soul of a dancer in need. We rejoice in Mrs. Ginny to keep all of us together when we forget something. She is homegrown and we are thrilled to call her our very own.

If anyone from Show A finds an extra one of the hip hop leg sleeves, let me know please. We are missing one. Thanks.
Dance moms. How do you wash your kids leotards and tights?
Dance family. I am asking everyone to stop what u r doing and say a prayer for Mrs. Mallorys daughter Raylin. She started feeling bad yesterday and long story short... has some abnormal lab work. She is currently being transferred from TRMC to Egleston for further evaluation and to b with her doctors that r much more familiar with her previous condition!
Just an FYI to everyone! Moore Highway (the road in front of ABAC) is going to be closed starting today all the way through the summer. That means the only way to get the the UGA conference center for next weeks' rehearsals and for the recitals is via Hwy 41. Be sure you know and all your guests know too!
Very successful Friends Week
