2020 has been a challenge for everyone. As Albuquerque knows, our unique Intro to Ballet is the crown jewel of our program. Sadly, due to covid, we have not been able to offer Intro Ballet since the pandemic began. A large part of why our students are so successful at learning to dance, and to do so safely, is because of our long-running commitment to quality. The necessary training of people's proprioception cannot be replicated digitally and is reliant on in-person instruction with at least some use of physical contact to help new students establish their body awareness. We are cautiously optimistic that we may be able to offer Intro to Ballet again in the spring. We are so sorry to make you wait, but adult beginners deserve nothing else when entering into this challenging, but deeply reward, art form. May 2021 bring better things for everyone!

What should go in a dance bag??! Over the years Bianca has realized that a lot of students (and some professional dancers) don't know how to pack their dance bag to be properly prepared for optimal participation and injury prevention. This is the contents of Bianca's dance bag when she attends classes. When she goes to an audition or a first time rehearsal she will add character shoes and KT tape. A student's dance bag need not be so extensive, but it gives you an idea of how to be prepared by packing layers and additional items you might need for comfort and to optimize your performance. Bianca's dance bag contents includes:
- water bottle
- dance shoes
- thin socks
- thick socks
- a beanie type winter cap/hat
- several types of leg warmers
- a form-fitting sweater or long sleeved shirt
- a vest
- squishy ball
- lacrosse ball
- emergency mini sewing kit
- bandages or tape for pointe + pointe accessories
- Tiger balm or similar muscle rub
- warm up shorts
- Advil (for head ache or in an audition emergency)
- granola bar or easy emergency snack
- extra hair ties and pins
And for current times Bianca has thrown in a cute covid mask made by Zoe ;-)
