Even our cat is watching Iron Pigs videos with Carlie.
For any QVC parents who may miss their kid in the parade because of timing constraints because of work etc. I may be leaving the Valley as late as 615PM and flying into Brandywine airport. It's a quick Uber over to the parade. I'll have a seat open if anyone needs it.
Are there Classes tomorrow?
Good luck to the girls auditioning for Enerjazz Senior tonight.
Picture night fun...

So last minute but is there dance today?
Does anyone have any information/website about the breakfast with santa at aacc?
Its Christmas Everyday in Alaska
Merry Texas Christmas
It's Christmas Every Day in Alaska
Hi! Hope you all had a great summer. Quick question. Asking for a friend... Where can she find affordable toddler sized dance shoes? New or used. She needs a size 7 ballet and tan tap shoe.

We teach tap, jazz, ballet, and baton to students ranging from preschool to adults! A friendly environment to learn all about dance with a caring, talented staff!

AACC Dance Connection has been teaching dance to students of all ages sine 1992! We provide tap, jazz, ballet, baton and preschool movement for ages three to adult! We have three specialty groups: Enerjazz Senior, Enerjazz Junior, and Enerjazz Mini. Our specialty groups have performed in the Citrus Bowl halftime show, Outback Bowl halftime show, Iron Pigs "Dance Team Night" and performed on the Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas! We strive to provide a program that gives every boy and girl a chance to dance!

We may be stuck at home, but we have more dance available to us than ever before! In addition to our regular classes, you can join classes with great dancers from around the world on Instagram and Facebook, watch amazing performances like NYCB’s new digital spring season, take dance challenges (including knowing your dance) and fascinating interviews with stars of the dance world.

So, so true. Be KIND, dancers! It always comes back to you in the end. ❤️

So long kitchen table and hello dance studio! Do you have a space for your dancer to take class next week?

[03/26/20]   Hi Dance Families!

We have been busy the last week with making instructional videos for many of our classes to help our dancers practice steps correctly and commit dances to memory. There are some that also have NEW STEPS so if you have not yet watched those for your class, do so to learn the NEW steps!

We have been exploring ways to have the teachers hold classes weekly from home. We decided to use Zoom. It is free to set up for everyone, works on various devices and is easy to use as well as being private as opposed to Facebook or Instagram live. We will also be able to see your child to make any corrections necessary and hear questions they may have. You will find directions on how to set it up for your child in an email sent today. Most classes will begin on Monday at the same time you would normally attend class, although some will be testing this class method tonight and tomorrow. Your teacher will contact you if it is one of your classes.

We will be using the emails that we have on file to send invitations to the class meetings on Zoom. If you prefer a different email or have an older child that has his/her own email, simply respond to my email and let me know who to add or what to change. You will receive email invites from your child's teachers for each class.

Please remember to be patient during this time. It is a new way of doing things for all of us and we are trying very hard to find a way to include everyone and make it as easy and enjoyable as possible.

At this point, we have no new information on scheduled events such as the Iron Pig performance (May 2), pictures (May 19), rehearsals (May 26 and 28), and recital (May 30). We will go under the assumption that all remains as planned until we hear otherwise. This makes it very important for your child to keep practicing and attending classes. We will continue to take attendance. Last week, will be considered our "snow days" that we assume we will have each year (thank goodness we didn't use them this year) and this week will be our "spring break". Therefore, we will have classes on April 9 and 13 either at the AACC if school is back in session or via Zoom if the closure is extended to make up for this week.

Please read the full email as there are other items of interest and information you will need to know.

Finally, I would like to thank you for your patience during this new experience. We promise to keep you posted with each update we have, provide weekly lessons the best possible way we can find and continue to post on Facebook other free opportunities for your child to move and groove!

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me.

Just keep dancing!
Francine

Dance today!

Our teachers are meeting tonight to plan for our next step in online instruction. However, you should keep practicing daily with videos and steps you have learned. Some videos include new steps so be sure to watch and learn from all of them! We will keep you posted on our next move!

Additional classes to take today are varied and look fun. Pick your favorites and join in on Facebook or Instagram!

Are you using your videos to practice? More are on the way!

Other options today to keep moving? Here you go!

[03/24/20]   I saw this on someone’s page and thought it important enough to share. I work with public school teachers and dance teachers. Every one of them cares deeply about our students’ health and well-being in addition to their skills and progress. This will not be easy on anyone but we need to remember our actions now will be remembered long after this epidemic. Let’s keep our relationships strong and healthy for the long run with patience, kindness and gratitude now. 😊❤️🙏🏼

“The next week or two starts a new chapter in public education. There is a huge learning curve that students and teachers will be navigating together!!

As we embark on this thing called “eLearning,” I am asking my Facebook friends to refrain from publicly scrutinizing their children’s teachers/schools/district for the way they are teaching or the lessons they are assigning.

Please offer grace to your child’s teacher and other school personnel. I promise that educating your children is still their #1 priority. ❤️

They are about to navigate unchartered waters with little, to no prep time. This is a crisis, not a time to be playing armchair quarterback. They love our kids and will be doing their absolute best!

And fellow educators, YOU’VE GOT THIS! I believe in you! “

[03/24/20]   Gina's and Marissa's videos were sent out to email addresses tonight. Please be sure you received them and use them to practice your dances. Let me know if you have not received them yet.

I will be sending out a few more tomorrow:) We are testing a video chat app to use for classes going forward until we can meet again in person!! More to come in the next few days!

Wondering what to do today? I’ll be sending more video links out for classes to practice our dances with your teachers’ guidance. If you are an older student and have a small class, your teacher may contact you directly. Plus, here are some live offerings today from Tiler Peck, Just for Kix and Kate Jablonski. CLI studios (with Allison Holker, tWitch and more) hasn’t posted today’s schedule yet. Let us know if you find more that you like!
