Dance studio offering dance instruction for children age 2-18.
I have been trying to promote kindness this year at the studio. It is a work in progress. I continue to strive to be more positive. Even though this isn’t the most positive message, it made me chuckle! #killthemwithkindness #laughalittle 😉💚
I am not sure how many dance studios can say they have a Dr on staff... welcome Dr. Caitlin Hines to the AD Staff! She is a professor at WFU during the day and we are so excited about another Alum being back home 💚😊 #bigbrainsbigtalent #drindahouse #ADalum #ADstaff #proud #lookingforwardtothingstocome #hardworkpaysoff
I am already sore from tonight’s Jazz classes. 😮
Sunday, June 2 2019. I spent today Making Memories with 368 dancers in 4 shows including 129 dance routines and 5 very special ladies! I am truly blessed 💚😊
Dress rehearsal wasn’t perfect, but it was perfect practice for us to be ready for Sunday! We did end up ahead of schedule. 😊💚#dancers #stage #advancedance
Today is the AD costume dress rehearsal. Mrs Sunni, Mrs Kaycee, Miss Devan, Miss Kasey, Miss Hope and Mrs Gena can’t wait to see their dancers on the stage. #dance #dancers #practice #rehearsal #costumes #onstage #advancedance
Advance Dance will run normal Monday class schedule. Wear your red, white and blue ❤️💙
AD team girls when Katie Lovejoy is trying to teach barre work in ballet. 😂
I am no expert when it comes to teaching hip hop but I had fun subbing last night. #genashiphopcombo #mybackupdancerslookthrilled #itisoktonotbeanexpert
So...I stepped out of my comfort zone and wore a white floral shirt today! Yes, I am tired and have a headache but I wanted to congratulate the AD dancers who attended Encore. Shoutout to Madi and Kylee for placing in the top 3 of intermediate solos. Gena doesn’t like photos or selfies!
While I am judging, some of our AD ladies took the stage at Encore for an optional competition. Thank you Kasey McKnight for taking care of business for me! Congrats to all of our dancers who placed in the top 5 or were selected for a judges award. A big shoutout to Friend in Me top score rec duet and Piper for top score intermediate solo. Way to go AD 💚

Thanks to Kathy Miller, Mrs Kaycee and Mrs Emily. AD costume pictures went well at our Clemmons location. The dancers looked beautiful in their pretty costumes.
Brag alert #2 today! I subbed for Mrs Kaycee at Arcadia tonight. This 5:45 class of 3-5 year olds (birthday girl far right turned 4 today) knows their ballet and tap recital dances! Mrs Liz and I sat in the front as the audience and they performed like pros. I also taught 2 other classes that worked really hard for me tonight. I enjoyed spending a little time with the Wednesday Arcadia dancers. #advancedance #advancedancers #arcadiastudio #danceteacherlife #dance #balletandtap #cuties 💚
I have to brag on this kid for a moment. She landed a perfect front aerial last night. I think I was more excited than she was! The best part was that her 6 other teammates in class were happy for her too. I love seeing these kids getting better and better. It is hard to believe we can learn so much in 30 minute team classes. Staying focused and using every minute is the key. I am one proud teacher of not only Piper but the entire AD Team. #loveADdancers #workhard #proudteacher 💚
Reminder: Advance Studios are closed today. Happy Easter Monday Break
We are so proud of Madi and Madelynn for making the Davie Dancing Boots! Yay 💚🧡

[04/04/19] If anyone is coming to dance class at the Advance Studio today...give yourself extra time. Traffic is backed up and moving very slowly on 158.
This little stinker tried to April Fool Miss Kasey and Mrs Gena today with her fake poop! LOL
Miss Kasey fooled her first class into thinking their jazz dance would be in the dark at recital. So they practiced jazz with the lights out. They were upset this wasn’t true. Hahaha
Mrs Gena got the Last Dance class with “Bring Your Pet” to dance next week! Puppy Pirouette class, Cat Contemporary and even Bunny Ballet. They were bummed to find out it was an April Fool prank.
Fun times tonight 🤣
