Here’s some fun for you guys to have while at home and still keep up on dance terminology 💕🩰

Hello dance family we miss you all so much! We are asking our dance kiddos to check out The Dancing Place classroom page !!! Thursday routines are posted to use to practice and more coming soon. Also share your favorite dance move with us and post a video to our page or this post so we can see 😍 hope your all staying safe ❤️

[03/22/20]   Good morning students and parents, First we want to tell you how much we missed seeing you this past week. We hope everyone is well, staying safe, and enjoying their time together.

Per the Governor's directive, all nonessential businesses are to shut down as of Sunday March 22 at 8PM. All in person dance classes are cancelled at this time.

We will however, be posting your routines on our Facebook classroom page so you may continue practicing for the recital. We suggest practicing about 2 times a week for 5-10 minutes (depending on age and number of routines).

Practicing is a great physical outlet for any built up energy and can a lot of fun. Remember, anywhere is a great place to dance: the kitchen, backyard, living room, etc. Dress up if you like and put on a show for your parents, pets, or even stuffed animals. However, we don't want to add any more pressure to families already needing to accomplish daily tasks for school, so please do only as much as you are able.

Any dancers/parents who would like to take pictures or videos of themselves practicing, stretching, or just plain dancing, please send them to us. We would love to see you dancing.

Depending on the length of this closure will determine how we will make up the missed class time. As of now, the students who were off last week have used their "snow day". This week will be using our "Spring Break" days. Students who had class last week still have a "snow day " to use if needed.

In regards to this year's Recital, Batavia High School has not notified us of any changes. We are still planning on our originally scheduled dates. Blocking/practice on stage will still be May 26th and 29th. Dress rehearsal on May 30th with the Recital happening on May 31st.

If you know of anyone in our dance family that doesn't use Facebook, please let them know they can contact me via text or call at 585-813-2519 so that we are all being updated.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions as well.

We miss you all so much and can't wait to see you all again! Thank you for being a part of our Dance Family.

These long days spent at home are just begging to be spent neck-deep in a pile of good books.

Dance Magazine

Over the weekend a handful of pros stepped forward to share that they'll be giving virtual class via Instagram or Facebook Live. So stake a claim to your kitchen counter, and start organizing your schedule for the week.

[03/15/20]   Dear parents and students, We are all concerned for the health of our loved ones and ourselves during this time. I would like to assure everyone that this weekend was spent disinfecting the studio and store. After much thought I have decided to keep the studio open for some of the classes this week ( March 16-18). However, the following classes will be canceled this week:
Monday 5:30 Hip Hop
Monday 6:15 Across
Wednesday 5:00 tots
Thursday: All classes
If your child is not in one of the canceled classes and you do not feel comfortable having them attend, please know that it is okay for them to miss class. I respect everyone's decision and understand that each family has different members and some may be at higher risk. We want everyone to be as safe as possible.
If your child will not be attending class this week please just let me know via text (585-813-2519) or instant messenger. I will plan accordingly after this week and we'll see how things have progressed. We will let everyone know how the week of March 23-27th will proceed later this week.
If you have any thoughts or questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
You are all part of our dance family and we want the best for each and every one of you.
Thank you!

I think what makes dancers so special is that you have to be so many things. You have to be an incredible actress, you have to be a technician, you have to be an athlete. You have to be open to feedback but also learn to own who you are and your uniqueness. You work hard to make it all look effortless, and you never stop learning. In my new MasterClass, I’m honored to share my journey and my techniques and welcome you to the world of ballet.

Tutu Tuesday 😊

The snow is flying and it's almost that time of year again! Buying gifts for Christmas can be hard for kids when they already have every toy and gadget imaginable.
So this year buy them a gift certificate to the Dancewear Outlet so they can get fun new leotards, bags, skirts and more! It also helps out the parents 😉

Miss Neeley had the kids working on elbow cartwheels yesterday and Riley got it on her 3rd try!!#dance#dancers#acro#thedancingplacedanceacadmey#bataviaslongestestablisheddancestudio#weloveourdancers
