Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄💕❤️💗

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!

Congrats on a rewarding weekend and we wish your dance family continued success on the rest of your competition and performance season!!!
