The dance rooms got a glow up! 🌟💁🏻‍♀️ Thanks to the inspiration of honey bee combs 🐝 but mostly to my husband Dave for this idea of doing hexagons instead of boxes! 🤗 Hexagons allow dancers more freedom of movement, as the nearest spaces are diagonally 6 feet away instead of next to them. Also, width increases to 7 feet per dance space! Can’t wait to start dancing in our new hexagons September 14th!!! 👯‍♀️👯‍♂️👏👏👏 Check out a time lapse video of taping studio A on our Instagram page @onthebarre!

☀️Pop-up Office Hours tonight 8/20 from 2-6pm! Come to the studio for shoe sizing and fall registration!☀️

🌟Almost been 2 weeks since our 17th annual dance recital and still bursting with joy!! 🌟

Announcement time! For the past 7 years, Miss Christine has been a huge staple at On the Barre. As an alumni of OTB, she called one day asking to speak with former owner Miss Angela so she could volunteer at the 2012 dance recital. Surprised and confused to hear someone else was the owner, she still came and helped out. We got along so well, I offered Miss Christine a job at the front desk in the fall. Eventually, she started teaching ballet and lyrical, and now runs MANY successful classes! She will make her students smile and laugh all class, while also tiring them out to make sure they know their “forms” and her beautiful choreo perfectly. Miss Christine has always been my second brain and helpful hands, so now it’s time to make it official. Miss Christine is now officially the new Assistant Director of On the Barre!!! Help me congratulate her on her new role at the studio! Looking forward to many more years together! ❤️🤗🎉

Today was one of the most memorable days I’ve ever had in my 8 years as a studio owner, and possibly my life. The heart and soul put into this day is unbeatable. My heart is so full of love and joy for every single On the Barre family. ❤️ Thank you for sharing this journey with me. I will never forget it. More pictures to come but here’s a sneak peek of our socially distant 2020 dance recital in the OTB parking lot.
