[10/16/17]   Thanks to all who participated in the Children's Cattle Festival Parade. I only wish there would have been more of an audience for all of the effort put forth by the students. They all seemed to enjoy the performance! Looking forward to the Christmas Parade on the Saturday after the Christmas Stroll. One last note, Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year so we will not have classes that day so you can enjoy Trick or Treating with your children.🤸‍♂️

[09/27/17]   Children's Cattle Festival Parade 10/15/17 @ 2:30 pm. We will participate! Sign up in the waiting room and read information posted.

[08/29/17]   As much as I was hoping to have classes this week, August 28, 29, 30, 31 Hurricane Harvey had other ideas, so we will be closed. We will also be off on Monday, September 4 due to Labor Day Holiday. Be safe and stay dry!

[08/28/17]   It seems as though we will have classes canceled on Monday, August 28 due to the possibility of flooding.

I would like to be able to have classes as long as you are safe to travel there and back.


[05/12/17]   Thanks to all of the students, parents and behind the scenes people for making recital number 71 a success! Pre-registration is now on and runs through June 20th. If you miss the deadline, come by July 14 to register from 12-4 at the studio or call after 5 to register by phone. Class size is limited, so don't miss out!

Squad goals 🙌

[01/08/17]   Gearing up to start the new year tomorrow at dance class. I hope you all had a wonderful vacation, now the real work begins. Please make every effort to attend all classes since there seems to be so many holidays coming up to disrupt us. Since the holidays fell the way they did, I am going to have classes on Monday, January 16 (MLK day off of school). Notes will be going home this week.

[12/03/16]   Due to the rainy weather, there will be no Christmas Parade tonight, December 3. Thanks to all who planned to participate! If it is rescheduled we will be in it! Have a safe weekend!

[11/26/16]   The annual Christmas parade in Abbeville will be held on December 3 @6 PM. The route will be from Jim's Tire Service down Concord and around Magdelan Square ending by Piazza's. Visitation with Santa in the Square immediately following the parade. Sign up at the dance studio this week to ride or march. Those who do not ride will cartwheel down the route and will need gloves to protect their hands. If it is cold you may wear navy or black sweat pants along with a white long sleeved shirt under the black leotard. You may also put small bells on the tennis shoes and wear glow in the dark necklaces and bracelets. (Purchase at Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Walmart, Family Dollar.) I need a headcount by December 1.

[11/06/16]   Even though there will be no public school Monday, November 7 & Tuesday, November 8 we will have regularly scheduled classes on those days! These days are not on our "Holiday" schedule!

[10/20/16]   Halloween "Trick or Treat" will be held on Monday, October 31 from 6 to 8 PM in Abbeville. Due to this event, we will not have classes on Monday, October 31. Enjoy and be safe!

[10/20/16]   Mark your calendar for December 3 @6 PM the Christmas Parade in downtown Abbeville. Details to be announced later!

[10/16/16]   Thank you to all of the students and parents who participated in the Children's Cattle Festival today! A big thank you to Kenneth, my son in law, who so generously provided his truck, trailer and time to help out again. Too bad the public doesn't support this parade as there are very few people who show up to watch! Sort of disappointing to the students who are so excited to be in a parade that provides a shorter route. See you at the Christmas Parade in December which is the Saturday after the Christmas Stroll held on Thursday!

[10/16/16]   Cattle Festival Children's Parade at 2:30 today! Meet at Jim's Tire Service on South State Street by the RR tracks!

[08/15/16]   It seems we will not be opening this week due to high water and flooding for a lot of people. Instead of waiting to see when the public schools will go back, I have decided to start classes as scheduled next Monday, August 22. I pray all of you are safe and did not have damage from all of the rain! Please pass the word to your family and friends who do not use Facebook!

[08/14/16]   Unfortunately we will not start classes until public schools get back on schedule. I pray that all of you are safe and had no flood damage. See you soon!

Also, thank you to the Meridonal for acknowledging our 70th Year in business with the article on us. NO, my name is not Peggy, but a retraction was printed with the correct name.

[01/31/16]   Well, now that I have finished with VC's Dancing With The Stars function with my couple, Jackie Trahan and Father Brian Harrington who were awarded best choreography, it's time to begin choreographing our alumni routine! Any former Miller School of Dance student who would like to participate, please message me with your email address so I can send you the dance. The date is May 7 at Abbeville High School Auditorium. If you would only like to attend the reception for former students at the dance studio on May 7 from 11 to 1 and visit with "Miss" Bettye and other alumni, please let me know so we can prepare enough refreshments!

[12/31/15]   Almost time to return to the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, so review your dance routines so we can get back to work in January! Have a Happy New Year and stay safe!

[10/21/15]   Please be sure to check your child's dance bag for info being sent home concerning costumes! I know it is early but necessary for me to know who will be in the recital so I can plan my dances accordingly!
