Choreographer's Concert

Here is another reminder about the Choreographer's Concert! Costumes will come home next week. The concert will be excellent! It is a shorter concert - great to invite guests. Please invite dads, siblings, family, friends & grandparents! We want a big audience for our dancers! Come prepared to leave your costume at the school after - bring clothes to wear home.

If you want to perform a solo in the Choreographer's Concert, please email and let us know ASAP. We will need the title of your dance and the music.

April Newsletter

Dear Parents and Dancers,

There are just 2 1/2 months left in this dance year. It is hard to believe! This has been a great year watching all our dancers grow technically while gaining ability in movement styles. I think as our dancers and parents have the opportunity to see other studios perform, they gain an appreciation for the attention to style and movement that our exceptional teachers give. We learn that dance is more than turns and leaps and that as our dancers learn to use their core and feel and interpret music, a higher level of art is achieved. We are lucky to have such high-caliber dance professionals teaching our children.

As we look forward to company try-outs June 2nd, it may be a good time to take extra technique classes and even tumbling. As dancers gain more skill, their confidence flourishes.

In just a short time we will have 2 concerts and 2 competitions for those on company. This is the fun and rewarding time of the year. I hope we all enjoy every minute! I am grateful to be surrounded by such wonderful people such as all of you!

Lots of love, Julie Brown

Congratulations eMotion Dance! We must have had the luck of the irish with us last Saturday at the competition! It could be that we just have the best, cutest dancers around... and it could be that our teachers are the most creative and talented choreographers in the state... and it could be that our dances are the most original to be found... and it could be that our costumes are the best...but in any case... WE ROCKED THE HOUSE at the Aspire Dance Pro Competition! Way to go eMotion!
