Dress Rehearsal & Show*
We have worked tirelessly to find our students and families the perfect venue for recital but unfortunately we were just dealt a bad hand this time around and due to the Derryfield double booking and forcing us out of our dates we have decided to not use them this year or anytime in the near future. Due to the late nature of the situation it was extremely difficult to find an appropriate theatre for June 19th & 20th. We are very sorry we couldn't book these dates as it has been our recital weekend for 5 Years! For this year only recital has moved to June 12th & 14th at Nashua North High School. We are already contracting next years Spring and Winter show to try to give people some peace and security. At the end of the day we are blessed and relieved to have a spring recital. We will still be holding classes the week after recital and we thought it would be a blast if it was a JUST FOR FUN WEEK! So the week after recital will be HAWAIIAN WEEK. We will be handing out leis and celebrating and reflecting on the past season together. Your dancer will be welcome to take any class in their level to try new things or just for fun. We would like to thank everyone who helped look for venues and everyone for their understanding.

NEW CLASSES
We have a slightly new schedule as it is that time of year for classes to get a good grooming. See link below. We are now offering some new entry level classes. Enrollment for these and all of our classes will be open until the 3rd week of February.

Musical Theatre- Fridays 5:00-5:30pm
Musical theatre dancing can be described as a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through acting & music.

Lyrical 1- Fridays 5:45-6:15pm
Lyrical dance is a combination of Jazz and Ballet styles with a deeper emotional component. *Students must be enrolled in a Ballet class to participate.

Tap Club- Fridays 6:15-7:00pm STARTING 3/6
Tap club is a 7 week club that is student driven and teacher directed. Each week the teacher will give patterns and challenges to the club. They will also be tasked with creating their own patterns and rhythms. The club is $42 total. All ages are welcome as our program is designed for multiple ages and levels.
Student Accolades
The Superstars program is a monthly award given to students who have shown extraordinary talent, effort, and all around role model behavior. Students must have perfect attendance that month to be considered. We announce Superstar every month by announcing each winner in the newsletter and on our website!

Hannah is new to us this season and we love her! She is sweet as can be and full of life and love for dance. Thank you for always trying your hardest with a positive attitude Hannah!
