Dear Students and Families,                                                                       March 26,2020


Wow, a lot has happened in the less than 3 weeks that we have been closed. It feels like more doesn't it. We are missing our students terribly but we will not be holding classes in the studio until it is safe to do so. At this time we are not sure when that will be. 

Will we have the recital? Yes, but the when and where may need to change. As soon as we know more we will let you know.


All of our students' accounts have been credited through April 14th. For those of you that paid by the semester I will add the additional credits to your account. Refunds are available upon request.

As dance teachers we know the benefits of healthy, artistic, physical activity.  We've been so glad to see some of our students doing live classes with us on Instagram and practicing their recital dances from the videos posted here. It is important to keep our students moving. I'll continue Instagram classes through April 10th.

Beginning Monday. April 13 The Dancing School will offer online classes through zoom. These will be a chance for your teacher to see you, connect with you, offer encouragement and corrections. The classes are at a the deeply discounted rate of $7 each to encourage you to take as many as you can. You can use your credits for these. If those run out we will bill you at the end of each month. Please see the schedule and more details below.

I will update this space as we have more information. 

Please stay safe and don't stop dancing. It feeds the soul and we need that now more than ever.


Yours,

Beth, Deanna, Julie, Nikki and Julia

In Memory of Cindy Taylor Hansen

We are so sad to have lost our beloved student, teacher and friend in a car accident in November of 2018.


Cindy began dancing with us when she was 4 years old. She was an original member of The 2nd Street Dancers and choreographed many amazing pieces for them. She traveled with The 2nd Street Dancers to China, Greece, Italy and Cuba. Cindy started teaching jazz at The Dancing School in 1998 and always brought creativity and fresh energy to her classes. Now every axel and backbend - two of her favorites- will forever more be "Cindy steps" to all of us. With every movement we will have her voice in our heads, challenging us to be stronger, more expressive artists. Her legacy at The Dancing School will live on as her students push themselves for her. 

The Cindy Taylor Hansen Foundation For The Live Arts serves to promote, educate and support young artists in her memory.
