Studio classes will continue to work on technique along with their performance numbers. There is exciting work ahead of us as we cover our syllabus for the year. On dark, cool, rainy winter night's spring can seem a long time away. Attendance is very important. We miss our dancers when they are not with us. It is much easier to learn choreography when it is being taught the first time. We are looking forward to everyone keeping up their wonderful attendance. In just 9 weeks it will be Spring Break!
