Thank you, Ron Brewer Images !

In recognition of International Dance Day 2022, I am providing a free studio photo shoot session and two retouched, high resolution digital images from the shoot to an Arizona dancer (or a couple). I have the highest regard for dancers and the constant discipline they endure for the sake of their art. The recipient must be an advanced dance student of any dance form, pre-professional, professional dancer, a teacher of dance, or a studio owner. The recipient must be currently involved in dance in an Arizona dance studio or company. To apply, just send me a personal message (not a comment below) here on Facebook providing your name, where it is that you dance, and any other information that you deem helpful. The application must be received by April 29. The photo shoot may be scheduled for a later date.
Congratulations to all of those involved in dance. Enjoy your day!

Chandler - invite to JOIN the HeartBeat Tap Ensemble headed by Mary Wall. She's BACK!

The HeartBeat Tap Ensemble is an adult tap dance group that performs at various events and functions in the Phoenix area. Past performances have included private parties, charity events, The Phoenix Tap Festival, the Las Vegas Tap Festival, Phoenix Suns games, Tempe's Veterans' Day Parade, Tempe's Fantasy of Lights Parade, Scottsdale's Senior Services Entertainment Extravaganza, Chandler's Spice of Life Variety Show, and appearances at various nursing homes and assisted living facilities. We have been on hiatus since the summer of 2019, but we are getting the group back together again and we are looking for some new members.

We will be holding 2 open rehearsals so that interested tap dancers can attend. This will give potential new members a chance to try it out and see if it is a good fit for you in addition to giving HeartBeat director Mary Wall an opportunity to assess your skill level. There is a $10 fee for each rehearsal. You are welcome to attend one or both open rehearsals provided there is room available. Just make sure to email Mary at [email protected] to reserve your spot, since space is limited. Please come prepared to do the Shim Sham Shimmy and the BS Chorus. There will also be some new choreography taught at these rehearsals.

Currently, the HeartBeat Tap Ensemble rehearses Thursday evenings at 7:15 pm and Saturday mornings at 11 am at Classic Image Dance. These days and times are subject to change depending on studio availability. Members pay a $10 fee per rehearsal to cover the cost of studio rental. In addition to rehearsals, members are required to take at least one Tap Level 3 class per week. This helps to improve members' tap technique and often our choreography is developed from pieces that are taught in the Tap Level 3 classes. A majority of costumes will be pieces that most people should already have in their wardrobe, but members may be required to buy some additional costume pieces.

Thank you! ❤️✨⁣

As we reflect on our 2021-2022 season, we are filled with gratitude. Seeing our dancers return to the stage after 18 months of dancing in their kitchens and living rooms was truly inspiring. We could see the depth of their love of dance in every performance. We know that as dedicated patrons of Ballet Tucson, you share that love of this beautiful art form. We want to thank you for your continued support and for joining us for all of the magic of this remarkable season. ⁣

We would not have had this triumphant return without you. 🥂⁣
