Hello everyone! I miss you terribly and hope you are all well!

Starting next week I will be offering some online dance classes! I want to help children continue to learn and grow without having too much time pass by. I also want to use this time to have some fun! My online classes will help keep children engaged And physically active. This will be a low stress environment! I will interact with each student while I work to build their self-confidence! And on the last day students will still have the opportunity to perform for their parents. I am offering a five week session but you can also pop in and take individual classes. Please look at the schedule below and let me know if you would like to sign up! Let’s dance!

All classes on zoom starting next week!

A dancer is promoting ballet in poor communities in the most inspiring way An impoverished inner city is the last place that many would expect to find a ballerina. For former professional ballet dancer Aesha Ash, growing up an inner city was all that she knew but it didn't stop her from fulfilling her dreams. As a young girl Aesha, who is from Rochester, New York, always....

" my jump is not high enough, my twists are not perfect, I can't place my leg behind my ear. Please don't do that. Sometimes there is such an obsession with the technique that this can kill your best impulses. Remember that communicating with a form of art means being vulnerable, being imperfect. And most of the time is much more interesting. Believe me ".

FROM A DANCE PARENT:
One of my friends asked "Why do you pay so much money and spend so much time running around for your daughter to dance ?" Well I have a confession to make: I don't pay for my daughter's dance lessons. Or her pointe, Jazz & tap shoes. Or her hundreds of costumes.

So, if I am not paying for dance , what am I paying for?

- I pay for those moments when my girl becomes so tired she feels like quitting but doesn't..

- I pay for the opportunity that my girl can have and will have to make life-long friendships.

- I pay for the chance that she may have amazing instructors that will teach her that dance is not just about movement but about life.

- I pay for my child to learn to be disciplined.

- I pay for my girl to learn to take care of her body.

- I pay for my daughter to learn to work with others and to be a proud , supportive, kind and respectful team member.

- I pay for my child to learn to deal with disappointment, when she doesn't get that score she hoped for , or fell during a move she has practiced a thousand times, but still gets up and is determined to do her BEST next time...

- I pay for my girl to learn to make and accomplish goals.

- I pay for my daughter to learn that it takes hours and hours and hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and that success does not happen overnight.

- I pay so that my daughter can be in the studio instead of in front of a screen...

I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for dance; I pay for the opportunities that dance provides my child to develop attributes that will serve her well throughout her life and give her the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen for many, many years, I think it is a great investment!
