We are very excited because this is a Nutcracker year! We look forward to seeing you soon! Remember, if you have someone join the studio, you get $20 off tuition. If you are wanting to try dance for the first time, you are welcome to come try a class for free.

Creative Show 2014 - Sunday January 12

We are excited to announce our upcoming creative shows on Sunday, January 12 at Montgomery Performance Space at Allegheny College. Come celebrate the creativity of our dancers!

 If you are new to the creative show process, it is easy to explain. During late fall dancers work on the creative process to create their own works under the guidance of their teacher.  We believe this is an important part to a dancers education because it teaches them about elements of choreography and self- expression.  Both these skills are important to develop the artistic side of a dancer. Dancers will present their pieces during these shows.  Each class decides on music, costume, make-up, etc.  If you do not know what your child is wearing, or what the hair and make-up are please check in with her/his teacher.  We do ask for a donation of $2 to help pay for the technical staff.

If you have been in creative shows before there are a few of new things to cover. First, the show is a week earlier than before. Second, we are back at Montgomery Performance Space (the Academy is booked).  If you are wondering why there are 4 shows instead of 2, it is because of new fire code occupancy limits. With a seating capacity of 170, I tried to keep each show to around 50 dancers.  Allegheny has requested that we do NOT sit in the aisles. Also, they do not want food in the building, especially since the shows are so short.  If your child is in multiple shows, Allegheny has asked that all food and drink be limited to the lobby.
