Our Keep It Local campaign spotlight this week is on our business member, Palmyra Academy of Dance. 💃

This Palmyra-based organization offers various dance classes, including ballet, contemporary, hip hop and more. Read their pandemic resilience story and how they are coming back #CentralPAStronger.

Adhering to COVID-19 guidelines, they adjusted class procedures to ensure they could teach classes to students in a safe environment.

"Our students were troopers. They learned their routines and complied [to the new guidelines], with masks and backup masks, just in case. I was amazed at our 3-5-year-old students who wonderfully adapted to wearing masks," said Co-Owner, Agatha Barone.

While their enrollment was less than previous years, they continued to provide their usual class schedule and even pulled off a two-night performance at a local theatre.

Their hope for the remainder of 2021 is to continue to open the world of dance to girls and boys. Thank you for continuing to bring the joy of dance to our local communities, Palmyra Academy of Dance!

In love with these images captured by Miss Molly our Barre teacher who just happens to be an extremely talented photographer and owner of Storied Photographs.
Of all the things our dancers are taught each year, I want them to know, remember, and take with them the rest of their life... the awareness of their power. We see this power in our dancers and work so hard to get them to see it within themselves.
This past week and weekend were extraordinary! Yes, we made it through a season of dance in mask and performed live, on stage in a stunning venue full of love and support! That in and of itself was more than I thought our hearts could handle. We were bursting with excitement last week in anticipation of our shows. BUT something else happened, even bigger and better than above. Our dancers, these young women captured in these photos, showed us they KNOW their power, and it was one of the most magnificent things to witness. It brought tears to the teachers as we reminisced speaking about our individual experiences witnessing this. These girls looked out for each other, they helped each other, went out of their way to find a misplaced tap shoe, laced up each other's boots, and asked a dancer 6 years younger how their quick changes went. Invited the younger dancers to pre-show photos, made sure they were all accounted for in lineups, applauded each other when they got off stage, held hands and shared what they are most grateful for, prayed, wished each other well, and the list went on and on. Not only were they fierce dancers that gave their all in their performances, they stepped into their own. Owning their power, they danced with precision and in unison in kickline unlike anything we have ever seen before. In knowing the power they possess the mission of the performance, of the show as a whole, became more important than their own singular performance. With the level of support and caring the dancers were giving each other it's as though they were working side by side with teachers, assistants, and volunteers backstage! The feeling of joy we experienced this past week because of your children could never be put into words. Grateful, blessed, and thank you, skim the surface at our level of joy and appreciation. It was an absolute honor to share our passion this season with our students. We are so thankful you got to witness the beauty of a live performance and the talents your children share with us each and every week in class.

Our 8th year, Season 2019-2020 has come to an end! The year began with so much anticipation moving into our beautiful new studio. There was so much excitement and pride that it translated into our dancers and the year felt by far like our best year yet!! Come January, the Corona Virus was a thing, but we were focused on show material and plugging away at new choreography, planning sets, quick changes, music edits and finalizing a year of details to put out our 2020 Show Packet. March hit and things changed so quickly no one knew which direction to go or even where to focus our attention. We wondered what would happen, and some natural fear of the unknown crept in. It felt unfortunate and heavy for everyone thinking about the amount of disappointment. Focus shifted and attention went to what we could do safely. We knew so many students needed dance now more than ever. YouTube links were sent, Zoom classes began and we went on dancing, the best way we knew how, we all just went with it. When I think back on what the plan WAS and what it turned out to be, all the change and disappointment along the way, it makes what was created the last two days far more significant and far more special then anything we’ve done before. Parents, thank you for trusting us during such an uncertain time. Thank you for knowing these kids deserve to be celebrated, and trusting us they were ready, and so very eager to dance together again. Students, you amaze us. You have experienced so much change and uncertainty in such a short period of time, but you didn’t give up! You showed up, you logged in, dealt with time delays, sometimes got knocked out of your Zoom class, but kept going and kept practicing. You deserve to be celebrated in the biggest way possible for doing hard things again and again! We are so proud you have these moments. Moments like this are defining and will remain with you forever! We could not be more proud of you! Thank you teachers for being the BEST there is. Thank you for changing, shifting and putting summer plans on hold. We all see your dedication and commitment to the students and it is inspiring. The love you give, the example you set, and the passion you share with your students is expressed in their confidence, their determination and their dancing. We love you, THANK YOU!!
