Hosanna!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

   After a wonderful summer of dance intensives, summer classes, and worship dance, some of us are ready for fall and excited about what God has in store for Hosanna Dance and how He plans to use us.

   Parents and Students, please be sure to fill out your registration form the first week of dance if you have not already done so.  ALSO, WE WILL BE TAKING MEASUREMENTS FOR COSTUMES FOR THE  DECEMBER SHOWCASE RIGHT AWAY IN SEPEMBER.  Costumes will be ordered by October 1st.

   In spite of the current fad of treating dance like a competition sport, Hosanna Dance continues to maintain a high standard for ballet as an art form. BALLET IS PAINTING AND POETRY IN MOTION.  Dancers are athletes but they primarily compete with themselves in an attempt to master the technique and execute difficult steps. Studying ballet does improve performance in sports like karate, gymnastics, ice skating, basketball, soccer and football testified to by black belt karate students who have studied with me. 

   The Dramatic Truth Summer Intensive was the best we have been to in three years with excellent modern and ballet teachers.  Ian Poulis of Kansas City Ballet also now teaches at Dramatic Truth.  He is a Kirov Academy graduate and the grace, beauty, and athleticism of his classes was awe inspiring.  At only 28 years old, he is already an excellent teacher as was his wife, Paraguayan born, Fabiana Poulis.
   We so enjoyed Durell Comedy and Tobin James’ modern classes.  Needless to say, their classes were moving and took us through both Limon and Graham techniques.  Tobin had been in the original Lion King on Broadway so we were very interested in her teaching since we are planning to do Lion King in the spring.

   We will also be doing a showcase Thursday, December 19th, at 7 p.m. at Riggs Theater. It will once again be a Fine Arts Booster Club fundraiser.  It will be a medley of  Christian and Christmas music focusing on Christ from creation to His return.  We will begin working on choreography right away in September.
Showcase Costume Order Deadline is October 1st!

   Hosanna Dancers joined several worship teams from Pierre and Rapid City churches  on August 18th in Steamboat Park to do spontaneous worship dance for several hours.  This type of lead and follow dancing works well with large groups who haven’t had rehearsal time.  It is a style we have picked up at our summer dance sessions in KC.

  Josh Easter, Sarah Easter and Ms. Sunny also performed Shekinah in a Dramatic Truth showcase in July. Praise the Lord!!!

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.)
