This summer has definitely sizzled, breaking records that have been around since the early 1900's. It has been as high as 104 so far. With all that heat, we are glad we have a very cool temperature here at the studio for our parents to wait in, and our dancers to take class in.
We are very happy with the response to changing our school to year round, and the positive response of our parents has been heartwarming. We believe that our dancers will benefit greatly from not having a break in their dance training.
It was wonderful to have the Steel Days Parade back to a regular crowd, with floats down mainstreet and beyond. Our dancers came out to support the studio. We had several of our little dancers in our trailer, sporting their Leaps and Bounds Tee Shirts and tossing candy. Amazingly (at least to me) our talented older dancers braved the heat and danced their way through the entire parade. Miss Retta( (thats me :)) managed not to plow any dancers down and all in all we had a lot of fun. Thank you parents for allowing us to have the joy of sharing the parade with our dancers.

We want to thank all of our amazing teachers, dancers and parents for the way they supported the studio through all of the ups and downs that have been Covid19. Our recital turned out wonderful, and everyone was so helpful with the Covid 19 waivers and having assigned seats. Hopefully by next year recital in June, Covid19 will be in our rearview mirror!
