News to Note

Thank you for sharing your dancers with us so we can pass on our passion...

Congratulations to Jessica Bizianes Sutter and Kyle Sutter, who were married on July 24, 2020 in a beautiful ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean in SanDiego.  









​We wish them two lifetimes of Love, Joy, & Happiness!

With the global pandemic, it reinforces the following:

Heard in dance class - "I was up vomiting all night, but Mommy thought I should come to dance." Given the pandemic and flu season, various sicknesses abound and we want to keep our dancers healthy! If your dancer is ill enough to stay home from school, they can make up the dance class - please don't share their germs with everyone else - the other Moms, Dads, and Teachers appreciate it. 

One of our Dads cracked up when he heard a teacher say "we don't lick our friends"... We don't only teach dance, we teach manners too! With physical distancing and gentle reminders not to touch, we reinforce what they hear at home and at school...
