We are super excited to
offer this innovative approach to a dance season!
After years of consideration we are shifting gears! My goal
is to provide the entire studio (targeting my non-competitive) with the best possible training and structure
that supports continued growth. I have thought a lot about the area that I am in and how best to serve this
We also offer Dance Companies for the students that wish to
take their dance experience to the next level.
How will this new
format benefit your family and performer?
This format will give the students the opportunity to advance throughout the year according to their age or skill
level. New students will be assessed the first two weeks of the session and moved according to skill. Current
students will be placed according to skill level. All students will be assessed by the instructor before the next
session and placed. Please see the age section for the examples in how the children move up when younger. Your
student may be in one level or age division in the Fall Season and move up or change for the Spring Season in
2 Concerts (Winter Show and Spring Show), Mebane Parade, Dogwood Festival, & More. Advanced students will have
the opportunity to possibly perform with company at an away performance such as Carowinds, Disney or a
If you are out or miss a class you will be able to attend any class within reason to make this time
Extension in class
Because we will have to begin learned routines as soon as the season starts we will need to make the class times a
bit longer. The first part of each class throughout both seasons will be focused on technical skills and the
remaining time will be a focus on the piece. This extension in times will give each student more technical time
throughout the entire year.
Family & Student
This format will give the students that play sports an opportunity to join. With two enrollment times during the
year the dancer does not have to choose which to do. They have more options to do both.
What does dance offer that other
sports may not?
Dancing offers a lifetime of opportunities. Most sports stop at the high school or collegiate level. You can dance
for a lifetime! Dancers learn proper etiquette and discipline, time management, and team building skills. The art
form builds strong, flexible bodies and minds. Whether you are a Studio Core Student (non-competitive) or a Company
Student, you can set goals far beyond high school such as Dance Team in College or a Dance Company and
Can I take a different class each
YES! You can take one style class the first half of the year and if you decide to try something different you can
enroll for a new class for the second half!
Can I be an
We are always looking for assistants for class and help in other capacities around the studio. Please come see Mrs.
Jessie. Helping with classes and around the studio creates a since of pride and responsibility.
Will the scheduled classes change
times or days?
Each June I will assess the classes and make adjustments according to the need. The schedule will remain the same
from July of one year, through both seasons (fall and spring) and end at the Spring Concert.
New Age structure and
Our goal is to build strong dancers that are able to transition into any class that they wish. Some classes come
with a previous class requirement or additional class requirements such as ballet. Tap is now combined through Ages
7&8 with Jazz. Tap is essential to a student’s training in musicality. Ages for class go as follows with an age
cut off. Some classes may go 7-9 or 6-8 depending on the style of the class.
