ABC's of Dance


Hi there! Will there be adult ballet on Halloween? :)
Hey guys! I'm casting a music video that is in need of background kid dancers aged 9-13 shooting in LA on Sunday, August 26th. We will also potentially need a rehearsal day prior. Synopsis: an 11 year old girl develops telekinetic abilities and uses them to take over her school. She uses her abilities to control the entire school to dance at her whim. The music video is for Americas got talent winner, Bianca Ryan. Also starring Merrick Hanna. If you're interested please email [email protected] for more details and instructions to audition!

We have awesome dance camps during spring, summer, and winter breaks.

While we are sad there will not be a Nutcracker season this year, this sure is the next best thing! So cute!

From the Nutcracker cast to our friends far and wide:
We’re sad that this season brings social divide.

A year without Snowflakes and Flowers? That’s tragic!
We’ve figured out how to still bring you some magic!

The cast is all dressed up and ready to go –
So join us from home, and come to the show!

Big thanks to Principal dancer Dylan Wald for this wonderful Nutcracker creation and to the cast, crew and musicians who made this magic happen. Gratitude to our friends at Browne Family Vineyards for supporting The Nutcracker this season.

[12/01/20]   Did You Know...
People, and especially kids, can better understand positive instructions than negative ones. For example, "Freeze" is easier to understand than "Don't move" or "Stop moving". If I were to tell you not to think about ice cream, what do you think about? Ice cream! You have to think about it in order to try to not think about it. Try giving your child positive instructions and see if they follow directions better.

Why Toe Walking Can Be Worrisome for Your Child | Scrubbing In

Does your little one walk on their toes? While it can be cute, it can lead to some issues down the line if they are unable to put their heels down. Toe walking, or walking on the front or ball of the foot, isn't uncommon among youth. So toe walking isn't necessarily a sign of a much larger problem. Often times children will outgrow walking on their toes, so how long is too long for your kids to be walking on their toes?
