Volunteering doesn’t stop us from excelling in our extracurriculars, especially when you have an awesome dance school like Ashburn Academy of Dance and a supportive award-winning choreographer/instructor like Jose Soto. Super proud of our Co-founder & COO, Esha Venkat, for receiving the 10+ years of Excellence in Dance Award! 🤩 Remember, nothing is impossible- you just need to have the passion and heart to follow your dreams! ❤
Are you looking for unique portraits for your child's activity? Sometimes our kids don't have the chance to stand out in photos for their activities, whether dance, sports, theater, DECA, and more. I will focus only on your child, and provide you high quality photos in less than a week! With gorgeous weather right around the corner, now is the perfect time to book your child's session!

Your family's safety is my top priority. I wear a mask for all my photo sessions, take everyone's temperatures before we begin (including my own), and will remain socially distant throughout the photo shoot for both your safety and comfort.

And right now, I'm offering 20% off photo sessions (excludes prints/products) for clients who book by February 14th, 2021. Message me today to book your child's photo session!

Katherine Dunham was dubbed the “mother of black dance”.

She formed an all-Black company, which began touring extensively by 1943. “Tropics” (choreographed 1937) and “Le Jazz Hot” (1938) were among the earliest of many works based on her research.

These jazz dancers are going to light up the stage!


Sarah - Can You Feel The Love Tonight

We love our A Place To Be friends.


This power couple transcended race and color by dancing the “European” styles of ballroom dance. Waltz, Tango, Bolero. They were true trailblazers.


It was an amazing show!

We pause our SOU news to highlight Ashburn Academy of Dance and their Performance Gala! Mrs. Valerie was about to attend the fabulous show! Just look at those Darby’s Dancers shine!
