Attention all Dance Moms!! We have 3 Exchange students listed here that love to dance!! Check out their information and please get in touch with me if you or a family you know may be interested! Students arrive in mid August. Please share! Christine Elaine 860-480-3895 💗✌️🌍

Laura- 15🇪🇸 She is considered emotional, sensitive, and very mature by her parents💑. She has a younger brother👦 whom she is close to and she considers her mother👩 her best friend. She loves fashion👒, photography📷, to play paddle tennis🎾, and is a very talented painter🎨. She has played the piano🎹 for four years, but stopped due to her busy schedule. She's been dancing💃 for years and is hoping to try out to be an American cheerleader📣while she is here on exchange!

Naya-14🇩🇰 She was born in Denmark but now lives in Spain 🇪🇸. She switches her time between countries as her Mom👩 is from Denmark and her Dad👨 is from Spain. She is the oldest of three (two sisters), and has a passion for dancing💃. She has even traveled🧳 with her ballet partners to London and Scotland. In her dance academy, she was chosen to play the main character Belle👸 at the final dance exhibition of Beauty and the Beast. She is not afraid to be on the scene, but likes her work to be perfect or at least good, and she likes to have things under control. She has won Math awards 🏆and plays the piano 🎹. She is very sociable, easy to make friends and she enjoys practicing sports🤾‍♀️, meeting with friends👫 and being on her phone📱.

Blanca-15 🇪🇸 Blanca is a very sociable person and she loves dancing💃 She practices both ballet and contemporary dance👯‍♀️ and she has been studying cello for three years. Blanca says,” The dance for me is so important because I feel free. I feel that I can express my feelings with my body. I can also make a story with pirouettes, different jumps and steps.” She is also a passionate reader. She belongs to the parish 👏youth group and she has collaborated in volunteer activities. She also belongs to a scout group that meets on Saturday afternoons and participates in different camps⛺️ and nature excursions🚣‍♀️🌿🐇. She believes her faith✝️and her extracurricular activities with her youth group have been a gift🎁 to her and made her the generous, empathetic and hardworking girl that she is.
Congratulations on the lovely article!
Is this true last week for spring classes? Jazz class at 4:15 on Thursday’s.

DCC IN THE MEDIA // We loved reading this recent @dancemagazine article (swipe ➡️) on religious diversity, equity and inclusion in dance featuring DCC Faculty Member @jeniferringer and Visting Master Guest Instructor @denabergel!

"I want everybody in my studio to feel loved and affirmed and free to express themselves," says Jenifer Ringer in the article. "It's so important to me to love the people around me, and to accept them. I want to show grace and mercy always."

"If we are going to talk about diversity, equity and inclusion in dance, then we have to talk about including people of different faith backgrounds," Dena Abergel says.

The article offers an insightful and thoughtful discussion on this incredibly important topic, and you can read the full @dancemagazine piece on their website! (Linked below)
