Summer Greetings!

We did indeed "fly away" from 30 East Main, Ft. Pierre, due to roof problems there that the landlord does not want to fix. I began searching for a new location in July but with rentals tightened up due to the flood relocations, it has been hard to find an ideal spot for a dance studio. A couple of locations of interest are not available at this time... one in Ft. Pierre and one in Pierre. Thanks to Brad and Erika Bruns for storing the studio belongings.

As I continue to look, it has become apparent to me that we may be looking at a late start in the fall, perhaps even October 1st. I can understand if you are not willing to wait to sign up your dancers this year and want to enroll them elsewhere.

We are planning to do Narnia April 19th & 20th, 2012, and have reserved Riggs Theater for that event. The word is that there will be no dance recitals in May at Riggs and they would not let me book either of the last 2 weekends in April either... "saving it for school events."

Some of the advanced dancers and I, ten in all, have not ceased to dance all summer. Because we had evacuated the studio May 27th, the day before our performance, we had to move our practices to New Life Assembly of God sanctuary. We are grateful to them and thank them for their kindness. We are getting worship dances ready for Awaken Worship Fest at Riggs Theater, Saturday, August 13th, from 6 to 10 pm.

We also performed "I'll Fly Away" at New Life Assembly in June and "In Christ Alone" in July.

Ms. Sunny and Jenna Goehring drove to Kansas City July 10 where they attended a week of dance classes at Dramatic Truth, Christian School of the Arts in Missouri. The teachers were wonderful as was the student performance at the end of the week.

Side benefits of the trip included a visit to IHOP's (International House of Prayer) worship center and a stopover in Concordia, KS, where we walked through the beautiful gardens of the Nazareth Convent and viewed the magnificent structure surrounded by bigger than life statues.

Emily Plumage attended classes at Ballet Magnificat in Jackson, MS, the entire month of July. She also attended a week of dance classes in Bismarck, ND, at Northern Plains Ballet.

We have had the privilege of having Jenna Goehring home this summer to instruct us in modern dance and choreograph a new worship piece to "Your Great Name." Thank you, Jenna.

Also, a thank you to Noreen Plumage for hosting a Narnia evening of viewing dance dvds and munchies at her house Sunday, July 31st, attended by upper level dance students.

You have turned for me my mourning into dance;
- Psalm 30:11

Student Examinations

If you or your student are interested in getting started with Cecchetti student examinations let us know.

Ballet III and up are eligible to start working on Grade 1. Examinations take a lot of preparation, study, and commitment.
(Normally 1-2 years is spent studying per grade. More as you progress through the grades.)

Our studio is affiliated with the Cecchetti Council of America. All teachers hold certificates in the Cecchetti Method.
