#MagnifyMonday, introducing our NEW faculty for our 2020 season! Carolina, Lauren & Lindsay. What’s fantastic about these 3 is that they are each alumni of our school, bringing back their own experiences to pour into our students. The next generation training the next generation. #legacy
Read below for an introduction to each special instructor.

Carolina Valverde~I’m thrilled to be joining the Magnify team! After training with Ms. Karen Alwin and the Magnify faculty for nearly ten years, I spent three years training under Stanton Welch’s highly acclaimed Houston Ballet Academy in the Professional Program as an Invited Guest with a full scholarship. I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to perform with my peers and the Houston Ballet company and to come home and continue my education at UNM with the goal to become a physical therapist. I can’t wait to teach such promising students and to pass on the knowledge I have gained. I had incredible role models in the company and I hope to be one for the younger dancers. So excited for what’s to come!

Lauren Maddock~ I am beyond excited to step into a new role at Magnify, after receiving my training from this school. Dance has always been a passion of mine, and it is a huge contributor in shaping the person I am today. I cannot wait to share that passion to inspire the next generation of students. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity; I’ll see you at the studio!

Lindsay Dekleva~I have spent the last few years dancing with Ad Deum Dance Company, a professional modern/contemporary dance company in Houston, TX. As a principal dancer with the company, I had the opportunity to perform and teach across the United States and Europe. I am so excited to be back with Magnify for this upcoming year!

Pandemic Film

A group of Ms. Andrea's Level 5 Contemporary class was inspired by all of the dance films around the globe that have been created during quarantine. They decided it would be fun to make their own version of their experience dancing at home during their last few classes on zoom. After many conversations during this collaboration they created movement on their own and as a group. Each person chose several ideas and words that resonated with them: Understanding, Vulnerability, Adaptability, Resilience, Perseverance, and Gratitude to name a few. These dancers have grown in ways that they probably would never have imagined and it's always a pleasure to experience their creativity. We are so proud of their dedication, commitment, and work ethic. Thank you ladies for being such amazing contributors!

We are pleased to announce that our Five Point Dancer of the Year 2020 is one of our Seniors at Magnify, Lauren Maddock. Lauren has been involved with our Five Point Dancer program since our first FPD Workshop in 2017. She has improved and grown so much over the years and has become a true leader. We have always appreciated her determined work ethic and mind set. Lauren has also been consistent with her cross training, her excitement to learn and grow, and has even maintained all this through our current zoom class format. She has found her confidence over the years and is always one of the first to speak up and contribute to the classroom, which brings us such pride. We know that Lauren will continue to give back in so many rich and wonderful ways to future generations. She will be joining us next year as a teacher and rehearsal director at Magnify... and we are so excited about it! Congratulations Lauren, we are so proud of you!

#seniorsaturday Celebrating our Magnify Class of 2020. So very proud of our Seniors, including the very special Chalina Caton-Garcia.

Chalina was new to us this past year but she quickly became a part of Magnify and we really enjoyed her time with us.
It is clear that Chalina’s work ethic and attention to detail has gotten her very far over the years. She has been accepted into many nationally well known ballet academies on scholarship and has also worked in honors programs for many of her high school years. We can tell that Chalina will always exemplify professionalism and respect in her work.

Chalina is very coachable and works with a beautiful quality that will be such an asset to any job or passion she chooses to follow. It was a pleasure to have her and we greatly appreciate her focused energy, bright spirit, and her sweet demeanor. It feels very special to have been a part of her journey and we are incredibly excited to see where her path takes her. Congratulations, Chalina!

JOB OPENING! Join Team Magnify! Looking for a highly motivated and energetic team player to join our administrative/office staff and to assist and serve our students. Must be detail oriented, energetic and willing to share our passion for dance!

Words from Kristen~ My time here at Magnify has shaped me to be the person I am today! I feel nothing but gratitude for this community of passionate people and artists. It makes my heart sing!! This studio and art form has become such a safe space for me to learn, fail, heal, grow, play, and everything more.

Thank you to Magnify for the past four years!! You ALL inspire me greatly and I look forward to what good things the future will hold! You guys are home 💛💛💛

Today was to have been dress rehearsal for Dance for a Wish: Magnify Showcase 2020. It was planned to be such special time honoring our dancers (our beautiful Seniors and all our accomplished young ones) and an opportunity to support the efforts of Make-A-Wish New Mexico. Though we won’t be together on stage this weekend, stay tuned for a “recap” of the show and a chance to still give to such a worthy cause...

#seniorsaturday Celebrating our Magnify Class of 2020. So very proud of our Seniors, including the very special Lauren M.

Words from Lauren~Magnify has truly been one of the biggest blessings in my life. It has been a second home, and allowed me to be my most vulnerable self. It has enriched my dance life, and just as powerfully has enriched who I am as a human being. I am beyond grateful for all of my teachers, and the beautiful environment they have created. As we are faced with uncertain times, I encourage the younger dancers to truly enjoy every moment; because they really do fly by. I plan to attend UNM in the fall, and still continue to be involved at the studio as much as possible.
