More pics of our ugly T shirt participants —- Cordelia Huffstater, Faith Christian, Mimi Gwozdz, and Hannah Eichorn.
To celebrate the holiday season, the dance studio held its first ugly Christmas T shirt contest. The winner of our petite division is Ella Eggleston and the winner of the teen division is Emilee Eichorn. Congratulations to you both. All the participants showed a lot of creativity and holiday spirit when they decorated their shirts.
‘Tis the season for holiday traditions. The Nutcracker Ballet is one of them. Two of our dancers performed with the Albany-Berkshire Ballet. Macy Angove was an angel and Keira Vidal was a clown. They both did a great job. What a wonderful opportunity to perform with a professional dance company right here in our area.

There was a witch who needed glitter, music, and chocolate eyeballs to make her perfect potion. The recipe calls for all the eyeballs in this jar. How many were in this jar? Keira Vidal guessed the number closest to the number of eyeballs in the jar. The jar of candy eyeballs and the little stuffed witch went home with Keira. Congrats Keira!!!!
The winner of our “BACK TO DANCE WITH KISSES” is Miss Ella from the Pre-Ballet class. What a great picture of her with her mom and dad. She and her mom had the closest guess of candy kisses in the pencil pouch. Way to go, Ella and congratulations!!!!
