Dear Parents and students,

After having the week off for Spring Break, I have decided it is best to stay closed for an additional 2 weeks and then reassess. I am hoping to open again April 6th. This decision wasn’t easy, but I do want to keep all of you safe and the families you go home to. I am hoping that everyone is practicing a self quarantine at home and that you are all safe and healthy. I will have more information regarding recital as I find out more.

I will miss seeing you all and working with my students, but I do believe this is for the best and that we will all get through it.

Please stay home and take care,
Rena

120 years ago today Rena's Grandmother's God Mother, Anna Pavlova, Began her Dance career at the age of 18, immediately following her graduation from the Imperial Ballet School. She was so recognized for her talent that she bypassed the normal rite of passage of dancing in a large ensemble and instead was awarded a spot in a group of three in La Fille Mal Gardée.
