So excited 🀩🀩🀩

The holidays are creeping up on us. It’s my most favorite time of year in general but especially as a dance mom! Its the absolute best, watching your heart, dance outside of your body, all around town, in the cutest ensembles, ever!

The performance team at Dance Arts by Maria has a calendar full of opportunities to dance at the areas best holiday events, all over town and hosts the most amazing holiday showcases for all members of the studio.

It’s truly such a fun time of joy and togetherness and the perfect opportunity to invite friends and family to sneek a peek at what your little one works hard at, year round!

If you’re new to the area, or maybe you’re seeking an activity for your child to participate in that doesn’t require ANY previous experience or large time commitment, Dance is for you!

Dance teaches confidence, endurance and shows these tiny humans that they can do hard things through practice!

Dance is for everyBODY, little, big, old, young, girls, boys and I love that.
