I'm having trouble getting on the ticket swap page. I'm trying to get tickets for the Gaillard performance either show (both sold out). If any one can help-it would be appreciated. Thank you.

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.

In her dance academy, she was chosen to play the main character Belle👸 at the final dance exhibition of Beauty and the Beast.

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🚣‍♀️🌿🐇.

We spotted another DCC Visiting Master Instructor in this week's @nycballet Digital Spring Season! If you haven't already, head to YouTube to watch NYCB principal Jared Angle perform Christopher Wheeldon’s Liturgy with fellow principal Maria Kowroski before the it leaves on Monday night!
.
From @nycballet: Premiering in 2003, Liturgy’s complicated partnering requires simultaneous, fast movements from its performers as well as dramatic backward motions and surprising poses, sometimes frozen in time to accompany the moments of silence in the music.⁠

⁠“By the end of it, you feel like you’ve really been through something profound that you and your partner share, and the audience gets to share with you,” says Principal Dancer Jared Angle

Looking for a a way to support a local organization while protecting yourself & your community? Kathleen Underriner Harrigan is hand-making these beautiful, washable masks in adult and youth sizes, and she is graciously donating all proceeds to DCC's outreach program, Community Moves! To place an order, direct message @kaunderriner or send us a message and we can connect you! 💕 Thank you, Kathleen!
.
Community Moves was created to provide more access to dance for people of all abilities. We have had the pleasure of hosting two adaptive dance workshops in the past year, including a virtual workshop held over Zoom last week! Participants and their families are invited to attend these inclusive classes free of charge, so your contributions will help us continue to make this program available to our community!

Reposted from @kaunderriner Thank y’all so much for all the responses to the pics I posted of the masks I’m making. Unfortunately, I think we are going to need these for a while, especially when we do get out and start gathering in groups of any size, so I’ve finally dived in and begun sewing. I am making both youth and adult masks. I have a variety of fabrics including some limited Lilly Pulitzer fabric I got my hands on! They are washable and made of light cotton with a thin interfacing lining. See pics. They are also washable. All proceeds will go the The Dance Conservatory of Charleston’s Community Moves Outreach Program that brings the beauty and joy of dance to those with disabilities or life challenges. Please message me and I can send you pics of all the fabric samples I have. I even found a place to make custom fabric for your organization or group! Thank you for the nice comments and inquiries! I’m so happy I can help during this challenging time, raise money for a wonderful cause and bring a smile to all our covered faces😷. Express your cause, hobby, interest or personality with a custom mask!! #danceconservatorychs #dccathome #dcc #dcccommunitymoves #charleston #charlestonsc #chs

We're diving back into Spring Show rehearsals on Zoom this weekend starting with Contemporary 1 & 2 tonight and all other dances Saturday & Sunday!

Videos to review are available on our Google Drive and YouTube channel, both of which can also be accessed through the Parent Page.

5 Lessons from Ballet Class for Uncertain Times - School of American Ballet

Love this! ❤️

sab.org During challenging times, you can often find solutions in unlikely places. Here are 5 lessons from ballet class to help navigate uncertain times...

Following Governor McMaster’s recommendation, we are incredibly excited to announce that DCC will begin adding in-person instruction back into our schedule this coming Monday, May 18! Details on our new operating procedures and updated schedule will be sent out later this week, but we simply couldn’t wait to share this wonderful news!
.
While we’re eager to see all our students again, it is imperative for us to continue to ensure the safety of our families and instructors as we navigate this new landscape. Like most businesses around the country, we plan to resume in-person instruction in phases, allowing us to carefully and correctly implement the new protocols necessary to dance together again safely.
.
Please remember that the health and well-being of our community remains our top priority, and we appreciate your patience and support as we begin the first phase of re-opening the studio to our families next week. We have missed our dancers tremendously, and can’t wait to begin seeing them in person again soon!

@danceagainstcancer is an incredible organization led by @dpulbricht that supports @americancancersociety. Our students have been so privileged to have the opportunity to work with Daniel both in-person and virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we know first hand just how dedicated and passionate he is about this cause. Tonight, they will air footage from their first DAC performance on YouTube at 8pm and you can donate to the organization by texting DACNY to 44321. We hope to "see" you there!

We will be airing excerpts from our very FIRST DAC at 8pm on our YouTube channel. Cancer does not stop for the Corona Virus and the @americancancersociety needs our support now more than ever as it is so difficult to fight cancer with the threat of this virus looming. This is being aired for free, but if you can, text DACNY to the number 44321 to support! @erinfogartyb and I are grateful to all of you! @danceagainstcancer - #regrann
