It’s International Dance Day! Here is a picture of our student Reilly doing what she loves best 🙂

You all know her! She is the smiling face at our front desk, the one who answers all of your questions, the one who takes your payments, and the one who helps you search for new shoes, tights, etc when your child needs them. Mrs Mindy is a veteran, a wife, and mom of three. We are so grateful to her for all of her hard work. Thank you Mindy!! And happy Admin Day!!

Due to hazardous road conditions and flooding all classes at the studio are suspended for today, Thursday, April 18th. Be safe!
