In like a lion…
There’s a lot happening around the studio these days in preparation for Spring. We’re beginning to prepare for our Under the Sea recital, so there’s a lot of buzz about choreography, music and costumes.
Due to the postponement of March Break classes will run as usual for the weeks of March 6 – 20. We’ll have a Spring Break the week of April 12-16.
Spring Break Camp
Registration is open for our Spring Break Camp that will run from April 12 – 16. Sign up online, or by emailing or calling us. Camp is open to children age 4 – 10 years. We have Half Day Camp (9am – 12pm / $250) or Full Day Camp (9am – 4pm / $350). Before and After Care is available.
Next week March 8 – 15 is spirit week! Sport the SSOD colours orange and grey all week long.
Grad Feature – Marley Acton
Marley has been a part of the SSOD family for twelve years. She put on her first pair of dance shoes at the age of five and we have enjoyed seeing her grow in life and in dance. Marley is loved by her peers, an inspiration to the dancers around her, and a joy to have in class.
You will find Marley quietly working away in class but cue the stage lights and she will dazzle you with her sophisticated style and riveting rhythms. Marley is a natural and talented performer.
Marley has always demonstrated a strong foundation in movement. Through hard work, her ability to pick up choreography and comprehension of musicality made it a true pleasure for us to teach her.
Marley has impressively juggled dance alongside numerous school activities, skiing, etc. She always shows up to class with a positive attitude, ready to work with her team. We know that Marley will go on to succeed in anything that she puts her mind to.
Ms. Christy’s modern classes will begin building their own choreography that will be included in their recital dances. Bring a pen and some paper to record your creations.
Ms. Heather’s classes will be working on recital dances. “Now that we have our themes it’s full speed ahead creating recital dances. I plan to include my students in the creative process”
Ms. Shar’s modern classes are “working on how we use the negative space as our partner and how we can fill the space that may seem empty with our energy and dynamics!”
