Where did the summer go??!!!!!

It's hard to believe that we only have 3 weeks left in our summer program!! The time has flown by and I guess that's because we have been having SO much fun!! We have been learning many new things....from the names of our muscles to the Mexican Hat Dance (we love that one!). While we are sad to see the summer end we are getting everything ready and gearing up for the fall when our regular dance season begins. Beginning in August be on the lookout for our registration poster at your school so you can sign your little one up for a year of unparalleled learning and fun! Hope to see your child in class this fall!!

Summer Olympics!!

Summer is going well in Northern Virginia! Its so great to be able to beat the heat inside, but still have fun activities to get our students moving.

One of my favorite summer themes is the Olympic theme we work on in July. Even though it's not Summer Olympic season, its always fun to remind the dancers of the special events and incorporate them in our dance classes. The students really enjoy the torch run and runners stretch but the crowd favorite seems to be the "broad jump" when we have a friendly competition to see who has the longest jumps. I am always so impressed at the athleticism this dancers have! We might even have some of these dancers premiering in the 2028 Olympics!

Happy Summer,
