Happy Holidays!

We are so excited for the Holidays in Northern Virginia! Now that we've had some winter weather, its really starting to feel like the season!

There is nothing more fitting for this time of year than dancing and learning about "The Nutcracker", which we are really enjoying! Its so nice to see how excited the dancers get when they hear that familiar music. We are having a lot of fun dancing like the characters; jerky/sharp like the nutcracker, sneaky like the mouse king, serious like the wooden soldiers or even beautiful and graceful like Clara. Our dancers have been doing such a great job with being able to show different movement qualities, which is so impressive at this age!

In addition to all the Holiday dancing, we are still doing a great job with our ballet terminology. I recieved such a great compliment from a grandparent who let me know how impressed she was that her little dancer not only knew the names of positions, but could show her them with good technique. It puts a smile on my face to know how much these dancers are learning!

Please have a safe and Happy Holiday season!

Happy Holidays!
