We are six weeks into fall classes and have another workshop under our belts.  Emily Plumage, Josh and Sarah Easter and Ms. Sunny traveled to Aberdeen on the beautiful weekend of September 28 & 29th to attend one of the best ever Dance Network of South Dakota (DNSD) Conferences at the wonderful new Aberdeen Recreation and Cultural Center (ARCC) with spacious studios and fantastic guest teachers.

We were so inspired by the opportunity to tap dance again that Ms. Sunny went to Menards and bought some floor covering to use at the studio.  Our ballet, modern, and jazz teachers were excellent also and equally inspiring.

You can see some of the wonderful dancing of our teachers out on the Hosanna Dance YouTube channel in the playlist 2012 Dance Network Teachers.
This was a first opportunity for some of our dancers to take Broadway Dance from Jeff Shade and they thoroughly enjoyed the fun choreography.

Hosanna Dance was invited to participate in a dance showcase fundraiser November 23 and 24 for the Riggs High school Band along with Pierre Street Dance and Sarah’s Dance Studio.  However, the showcase was cancelled because not all of the studios were able to be ready for a November performance.
Hosanna Dance has agreed to let Riggs High School Band use our performance of Lion's Roar on December 14 and 15 as the band fundraiser. We will most likely be doing our 3rd run through Monday night, December 10, at Riggs Theater instead of the studio. This will be our dress rehearsal.
We apologize for all the changes in our plans this fall but are really thankful and praise God for this opportunity to work with the faculty at Riggs. To God be all the glory.
Costumes have been ordered for the November/ December performances.  If you did not pay the extra fee for these, I will subtract the cost from the recital fee paid at registration and there will be extra costume charges in January for the May show.
