I have a question for those of you that have Studio Director. What is your preferred way to do Pre-Registration for current families? Thank you so much for your comments.
Rhee, as a dance fan and former tap/ballet combo student, I agree on age-appropriateness as well as the glut of angst-ridden, overly morose contemporary dance routines at competitions. I found a pearl among the rocks of videos of those negative-mood ones. Best of all, the pianist who accompanied the classes in the daily class series, Worldwide Ballet Class, CHOREOGRAPHED IT! This piece came to show that contemporary dance CAN AND SHOULD be happy and hopeful!
Any one who is doing a soft reopening or opening soon... Are you having parents sign any sort of waiver? We are planning to open allowing only a small percentage in at a time and taking all the precautions we could possibly think of next week. A waiver is something I feel like may be like a safety net. I would love to hear any thoughts on that.
What are you suggesting to do about Recitals with the Covid shut down? Put the Recital off, have small performances with fewer audience members? Still trying to make that decision.

is the right place for the live?
Hello!! I am a dancer!! And I am a man, a married man with three children. I am 50 and I dance every day. I have been dancing since the age of 13. I am more Athletic than most athletes, I have not retired!! I am Fit, Healthy, Strong, Confident, and Sexy. I am Nimble on my Feet. I am Quick, Agile, and Spritely in Step. I have more Stamina than a teenager. I am Youthful and have more Energy that most Students that I teach…that is just the tip of the iceberg!!

Here are a few of Life’s Skills I have learned from being a Dancer:
Courage, Love, Loyalty, Commitment, Professionalism, Truth, Honesty, Self-expression, Creativity, Self-Esteem, Friendship, Family, Hard Work, Failure, Stress, Compromise, Teamwork, Integrity, Adversity, etc!!

I have been that young boy that has been mocked and scoffed at while becoming a dancer. It never really bothered me though, because once I got going with choreography, the results would pretty much just shut down anybody’s critiques or judgments of me as a Human Being. As time went on, I realized that the comments would come from ignorance and a misunderstanding of any knowledge, truth, or facts. Truth be told, I came to believe that when people made ugly remarks about me being a dancer, it was usually because they weren’t, or couldn’t, or did not ever learn how to. Jealousy? Envy? That understanding, for me, kept me going and I was able to overcome that adversity fairly quickly. Oh!! And it also didn’t hurt being surrounded by girls. Especially without much competition from other boys. Dancing with girls, or playing on a team with boys?? …hmmm, No-Brainer!!

There were some awful things said last week about boys being dancers (with applause and laughter in the background from the live audience, you know who you are) and I just thought I would throw in my two cents…I have been a boy my whole life and I have been a dancer for a better part of my whole life. So far, it’s worked out well. I am still dancing at age 50, when a majority of men my age cannot bend down and touch their toes. I see no signs of stopping now…I am only getting better as I go. So, we will see who has the last laugh!!

Sincerely,
A Boy Dancer

Batter up: Jennifer Randall!
Jennifer grew up as a dancer and started touring with a traveling dance company at the age of 14. She began teaching at 15 and continued to teach through college as well when she moved from the Midwest to Seattle where she decided to open her own studio. She quickly learned that she actually enjoyed the marketing and business side of the studio. She has always enjoyed learning new marketing skills and seeing how she can use them for her studio.

After 15 years, Jennifer decided to sell the studio to focus on raising her children. Quickly after, Jennifer realized that she had a passion for helping other studio owners with their marketing and getting the most for their money but still using current marketing. She believes that marketing is one of the unknowns for most studio owners because they are so focused on providing great classes and experiences that the marketing side becomes a chore or something that is not trackable.

Jennifer is now a Marketing Strategist who is passionate about helping
 membership based businesses increase client’s, income, and retention through proven marketing strategies. Jennifer has spent 15-years building a membership based business of her own, and now with her knowledge and love for the “techy stuff” she helps businesses get their customers off of the “social media scroll” and through the doors.

We're so excited for Jennifer to make her DLTC debut this year!

Batter up: Ashley Canterna Hardy!
Ashley received her ballet training at the Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington, DC on full scholarship. At 14, she was the winner of the junior division at the Youth America Grand Prix Ballet Competition. That same year, she represented the United States at the 2000 International Ballet Competition in Varna, Bulgaria winning the silver medal (the highest awarded) and the City of Varna Award. In 2002, she went on to win the title of “Miss Dance of America.”

Ashley’s true passion is teaching. She is a certified teacher through Dance Masters of America. She enjoys traveling as a guest artist, master teacher, choreographer and judge. Her students have gone on to attend the Juilliard School, Boston Conservatory, the Cats National tour, Phantom of the Opera National tour, and many have joined ballet companies, including Derek Dunn principal dancer at the Boston Ballet. She currently serves as a teacher and is a choreographer at Akhmedova Ballet Academy, has taught at The Rock School for Dance, choreography for Maryland Youth Ballet, and is on faculty and the proud Artistic Director of the Edna Lee Dance Studio competition team in Linthicum, MD. She is honored to have won many choreography awards, including the Sherry Gold Memorial choreography award, USAIBC choreography award, and most recently was named Outstanding Choreographer at the Youth America Grand Prix International Ballet Competition.
