Myrna Rae's Studio of Dance

Myrna Rae's Studio of Dance


I’m so thrilled to see such an amazing studio going strong after all this time! Truly a community landmark. I was 3 years old when I started at Myrna Rae’s, 30 years ago & it inspired a lifetime love of dance. My own 3 year old daughter will start dance this fall. Thanks for inspiring young hearts!!! Three cheers to Myrna the Great!
All of the pictures and information are fantastic. Thanks for keeping us all in the loop. Amazing dancers and teachers. Way to represent! You all rock. ❤️
Hi everyone!! For anyone who doesn’t know me I am a Myrna Rae’s Alum and also April Plohr’s daughter. I currently am a cheerleader at Maryville University where we compete nationally. I wanted to reach out to this page because of my strong connection to the studio. My team is currently fundraising through the selling of Mix Jars! I’ve posted a photo below. If you have any interest in the jars feel free to comment below or personally message me! All jars are $10 except for the two dips (they are $6). All the jars that are $10 you can do 3 for 25 and the two dips you can do 2 for 10. Thank you in advance for your support!!!
Please make sure your order is in on or before October 15th!
Thank you sooo much for the J.A.M scholarship you awarded Brenna! She loves dance and I felt honored that you can see that in her!
