Can’t wait to see all our younger dancers as we transition into Phase B this week!!! ❤️❤️❤️ Oh and....HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS CHRISTINE!! 🥳🥳🥳

Front of studio outdoor tour! See you all this week! Woohoo!

Many more photos to come from our parade today! Congrats 2020 Seniors!!! 🎉🥳

June 13th. Here we are. Today would have been Miss Beth’s 9th recital as Owner, and OTB’s 17th recital overall. June 13th was a date we were looking forward to since September. Well, the universe had other plans for us and now we are looking forward to today for another reason- to celebrate our dancers, seniors and teachers with a car parade!!!! We can’t wait to see everyone as they drive by today, and in classes, too! Now we have a new day to look forward to- August 1st. Let’s take a trip down memory lane with all these finale photos from past years to honor our special day. Let the celebrations begin!!! 🎉🎉🎉Remember, the parade route is to pull in near Dunkin and take a left to drive along the exterior of the plaza past McDonald’s and past the studio, then to exit past Roche Bros. See you there!

Setting up the studio even more for our younger dancers to start on Monday! Remember- classes will be outdoors as much as possible, but some classes may move inside due to rain or heat depending on class size. Can’t wait to see everyone very soon! 🤗👯‍♀️💙

Beautiful night for outdoor dancing! ☀️

Our outdoor dance classes continue!🤗 @ On the Barre Dance Studio

Join us for a parade this Saturday at noon through our plaza! Let’s celebrate what would have been our original recital date by driving past the studio and waving hello to all our seniors and staff! All are welcome! Hope to see you there!!! 🎉🎉🎉 @ On the Barre Dance Studio

Tap picking up right where we left off! Man, it feels good to be back! ❤️

WELCOME BACK, DANCERS!!! One year ago on this date we had our 2019 recital. This would have been our 2020 recital week. Instead, we are now just coming back, stronger than ever, and can’t wait to conquer these next 2 months! It’s funny how life works sometimes. It was SO good to be back!!!👯‍♀️👯👯‍♀️👯

🎉🎉🎉Cue the fireworks! We’re back Monday 6/8 with the first phase of our re-opening!!! Parents- check your emails for details. In accordance with state guidelines, we have created a thorough and comprehensive reopening plan that will allow our dancers to return to dance safely and responsibly. It’s safe to say WE CAN’T WAIT!!! See you very soon!!! 🎉🎉🎉

Never would I have thought that 2 weeks into my brand new program at @sharonrecreationdepartment I would be forced to temporarily close the classes. But as with all things right now- it is only temporary. Sharon......we WILL be back, and better than ever! Keep an eye out for information on restarting our programs. I can’t wait to dance with you all again! 💙 Sharon Recreation Department

Oh. My. Goodness! The level of talent we saw today in our Virtual Dance Showcase was INCREDIBLE! We had 4 extremely talented dancers show us grace, preparedness, amazing technique and personality. For the first time EVER we had two 2-way ties and all 4 of them earned a spot as Director’s Choice Winners and will get to perform their dances in the recital! Blown away! Here are some pics of our event! We love you all and we couldn’t be more proud! 🌟🌟🌟

So true! Miss everyone so much. Can’t wait to see everyone in Zoom classes next week!

2020 was not only a big year for High School seniors, but for College Seniors as well. They also are losing out on this typically activity-filled, life-changing time of their lives. Since we love all of our alumni so very much, I wanted to highlight our 2016 Seniors as well, who all happened to graduate from college this year! Here’s what they’ve accomplished, and their next plans:
Madeline Jezard is graduating from Fairfield State University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, with a minor in Marketing. She’s immediately starting her Masters in Accounting as well!
Lindsey Decker is graduating from Wheelock College (now part of BU) with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. She is immediately starting her Master's in Early Childhood Education as well!
Katy Johansen is graduating from Curry College with a BA in Business Management with a focus on the arts and hopes to open her own paint studio one day!
We are SO proud of our 2016 alum and just know we love you very much and will always be there for you! ❤️❤️❤️ Love, your OTB family

Happy Mother’s Day to the make-up appliers, bun makers, costume fixers, tear wipers, hug givers, and overall amazing human beings who are the heart and soul of our dance studio. ❤️ We love you and hope you have the best Mother’s Day ever!

[05/05/20]   This past weekend, Miss Jenna and Miss Beth travelled around Norton, and to all 4 of our Seniors' houses to surprise them with the Shim Sham Shimmy! It was so much fun and we hope you enjoy!

Inspired by Miss Kolleen of Kalia Karr Studio of Dance, we took on the Shim Sham challenge! Who's next???

May the 4th be with you!

Typically around this time, we post all our 5, 10 and 15 year award recipients in the studio. Well, I didn’t want their hard work to go unnoticed, so I wanted to share with the world!!! 🏆🏆🏆Congrats to all our 5, 10 and 15 year award recipients! Your dedication is undeniable! We love you and miss you! 🏆🏆🏆

Join us for the "Back In Time Picture Week Challenge"!!!!

This upcoming week was supposed to be our Picture Week. The photographer (who just happens to be my dad, Ken!) comes in, we all put on our costumes, hair, and make-up and take our group photos and individual photos. It's typically a really fun week where we get to see the dances come to life! Well- I was bummed we were missing out on this opportunity (for now), so I thought it would be fun to break out the old costumes, dig through your closets, and get creative!

Here's what you'll do: Find a throwback photo of you from a past picture week- could be from when you were little, or more recent, and try to recreate the costume and the pose! You can use the ACTUAL costume if you still have it, or get silly and improvise with whatever you have in your house!

I will definitely be posting more as I dig up more picture week photos of myself! Post your photos in the comments below, or send them along to me! This is going to be SO much fun!!!

Now at the studio, every dancer and teacher is honored with a heart displayed for all to see. Each and every one of you is so special, and missed so much inside these walls. If we can't be together at the studio in person, we will be together in spirit. ❤️ So, take a drive, find your name, take a picture, and comment with it below or tag us. We can't wait to see all our dancers again soon!

[05/01/20]   "There will be an answer, let it be." We miss you. We love you. Love, OTB

Our last 🌟Senior Spotlight🌟 is the extremely talented and hardworking, Mackenzie Smith! Mackenzie started dancing when she was 4, and this is her 14th year at On the Barre (so close to 15!) Mackenzie has always been an incredibly passionate dancer. Not only is she admired for her beautiful technique, but also her kindness, leadership, and poise, too. Mackenzie is an amazing Assistant Teacher for her little ones, and is the longest standing member of our competition team. She is graduating from Mansfield High this year, and will be attending the University of Pittsburgh in the fall. Mackenzie is at the studio almost every day of the week, and she will leave an everlasting impression on the teachers, students, and studio as a whole. We love you, Mackenzie! Congrats!

Today's 🌟Senior Spotlight🌟 is the fabulous Alexis Pryharski. This is Alexis's 9th year at On the Barre. She is our team cheerleader, and is ALWAYS there to support her fellow dancers. Alexis is a true friend to all, and an amazing Assistant Teacher to her little ones. Alexis is graduating from Norton High, and will be attending the University of Pittsburgh in the Fall. We will certainly miss our late night chats at the studio way past when class ends, but we are so happy for all the memories we've created together and there are SO many more to come!! We hope Alexis continues her dance journey to college and beyond! Love you, Lex!

Our next 🌟Senior Spotlight🌟 is the amazing and wonderful Sarah LaSalle. Sarah is On the Barre's first ever 15-year award recipient this year!!! Wow! What an accomplishment to celebrate! She started dancing when she was 3 years old- the same age as her little dancers that she currently Assistant Teaches for. Her dedication to the studio and her team are unremarkable. Sarah is graduating from Norton High School, and will be attending Penn State University in the fall. Not seeing Sarah at the studio almost every single day will be tough, but we know she will be a frequent visitor! Your future is SO bright Sarah- NEVER stop dancing!
