Arriving at the studio
I have renovated my basement into my dream studio. It is separate from the rest of the living space and has its own entrance located on the side of the garage. It is a 500 square foot space fully equipped with quality flooring, mirrors, barres, and equipment for tricks, turns, and strengthening.
When you arrive at the studio you may park on the street on either side (please do not park in the driveway). When you walk up the driveway please enter the garage using the door on the far right side of the garage (around the right side of the garage). Come on in the side door and walk down the stairs in the garage leading to the studio. I ask that everyone please remove their shoes before walking on the dance floor. The dancers can get ready for dance class using the entry area. If you want to stay until your dancer is done with class there is a waiting area across from the studio. Please have dancer come prepared and ready for dance.
The dancers will start their class with a little stretch on their own that is normally against the wall or on the floor. We will then start class with barre if it is a ballet class or a warm up for the other classes. We will then stretch altogether on the floor. After the stretching we will do jumps, leaps, and turns across the floor. Depending on the class we will work on skills or tricks after. After we will work on any choreography we have or short combos. The last few minutes of class the student will participate in "free dance" which is improv, when the dancers can have fun dancing to music! Water breaks can be taken as needed but I will dismiss the class to take water breaks as I see needed. (no water fountain is at the studio so please come prepared with a water bottle.)
I hope this helps and I am excited to see you at the studio!
A bathroom is located in the studio area as well.
No street shoes allowed in studio area please.
During the dance season students may participate in parades, nursing home performances, or community events. These are optional and will be free of cost to your student. (observer fees may occur for community events)
