With one step...We took our show back to the stage!! What a joy to perform once again at the Hillman Center for Performing Arts!! Congratulations Fairgrieve Family!! Your family, fans and friends couldn't be more proud!
Hello Dancers and Families!
We are thrilled to be dancing in the studio! While we all know the current virus has no boundaries and has some physical risks, we have measures for our health in place. Plans have been emailed to our families. I’ve done so much pondering over wellness lately. Social and emotional well being play such a major part in our physical health! As a mom, It’s easy to see what we already know.....kids, and adults, need to be active! They need to laugh with their friends! They need to interact without a screen! When we opened in late June, it was just what we all needed....a bit different, but a sense of what things used to be and will be again! Each time our door opened a bit of joy entered! Our show was very different this year, but oh so wonderful as we celebrated not just the dances, but the dancers! As we weigh all the physical things the virus has removed, things we can’t do.....I’m so optimistic and excited for all that we CAN do! Plenty of that still exists! Dancers are ready to put on their shoes. New dancers of all ages (preschool, beginner teens and adults) are ready to take a new adventure to discover what the combination of music, movement, routine and plain old fashioned fun dance brings! After months at home, inside the doors of home and work and school....between our physical and emotional well being, our joys are waiting, and dear friends....that’s where we dance!
Hello Dancers and Families!
Each year as I type my back to dance letter I get so excited to put on my dancing shoes!! We've missed seeing all of our students and dance families during the summer, and we can't wait to meet many new faces so....welcome and welcome back! Tall Miss Erin, Little Miss Erin (lovingly referred to as The Erins:), Miss Mary, Miss Lindsay, Mr. Dennis and I are busy choosing music and planning choreography. The studio is just about set for the sounds of tap shoes and barre music! With all of the summer fun my family has enjoyed, some of my most fond memories were finding dance in unexpected places! Dancing in my kitchen while doing the third sink full of dishes of the day with some very loud music playing from my iPod (I'm sure some of you have done that too:). My daughters, nieces and youngest son impromptu dancing one morning on vacation. Those same kiddos walking down memory lane and filling my living room as they danced along to a video tutorial of the Hoedown Throwdown (oh the Hannah Montana years:), my girls wishing they could stay for a USO dance at a D-Day reenactment we visited..... One special moment happened as I had my dancing feet propped up and was enjoying a sunny afternoon while reading a dance magazine. On the last page was a coloring sheet of an alumni of the studio, Gene Kelly. It was his iconic Singing In The Rain pose. What made me smile while reading it was the history....one I've heard many times of how he started dance when not many fellas did. It's a story that was passed from Miss Ruth Fairgrieve, to her daughter Miss Nancy and on to me! Little things like that are one of my favorite parts of our dance family!
