It's #teachertuesday and we want to give a huge shoutout to Miss Jessica!! She always goes above and beyond for her students. Here you can see how she disinfected all of her student's props and put them in individual bags for them to take home. What a hero!! 🦸‍♀️⭐

Miss Jessica shared with us how it feels to be back teaching virtually & in-studio: “The first day I was able to be back in the studio was very emotional— in a good way. I had both tears of joy in my eyes and the biggest smile under my mask. It was like finding a piece of myself again. At my core I am a teacher and to have the ability to share space with my kiddos was such a gift. I absolutely love to see my youngest students achieve milestones like skipping, balancing or getting that very first 1st position."

An Enchanting Evening

Posted on by Deborah Wenzler Farris

The violin called out a sweet message setting a stage of elegance. I lifted my eyes from my conversation to the staircase as the dancers made their entrance and slowly began their descent into the space where the audience stood watching mesmerized and suddenly we were lifted into another dimension, where time stops, the strain of the day disappears and everyone becomes one.

We are all dancers together as the movement before us and within us, unites us–the vibrations of the strings, the dance is coming, the dancers becoming, we are becoming artist brush strokes, intersecting, sleek, sultry swirls of colors, lines extending then retracting, imprints on a palate. Like a gust of breath into the city night air, energy, exertion, a stance is stillness, a vision, a veil lifted, each moment vivid.

No past, no future. The Artist’s canvas. A clean slate. No dissension only beauty descending onto, into us all. Hush. Sweet silence. Somber, solemn stillness before a burst of light breaks forth. New life. This is dance. This is the dance within.
