Dance Director Leah Servais with some of our Junior Jazz Class.


We're excited to announce the first dance and music classes for the 2016-17 season are beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6 2016. See you all soon!


New Classes to be offered this year. One of these will be a new class in Modern/Lyrical Dance. This is a style of dance created from the fusion of ballet with jazz and contemporary dance techniques and is a "cousin" to those styles. The students will learn how to express their emotions in this form of dance to contemporary music. This class will be open to students who are at least 7 yrs old. This class will be taught by Miss Megan Morris on Wednesdays from 4 to 5pm. Miss Morris has an extensive background in this form of dance and is eager to share her knowledge with her students. Call us at 505-962-2318 for details.

Hi Everyone:

Just a reminder that the week of Nov. 26th - 30th, there will be no classes due to Thanksgiving. We hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Parents' Day

Our annual Parents' Day is the week of Dec. 10th - 14th. Families and friends are welcome to come and watch the children in their regular classes. You may also bring your camcorders & cameras. For the music students please wear your Sunday best.

We have begun preparing for this week, so it is important that the children come to their classes, especially now. However, we certainly understand absent days due to illnesses. It's also important to be on time for their class as much as possible for the student's sake as well as their classmates. If you have any questions about this, please let us know.

Thank you and enjoy the holiday.

Best regards,

Leah and Jim Servais
