FOR UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN . . .

   Before we know it, our performance date will be here.  Some of the dances have been finished, others are in progress.  Dress rehearsal will be Sunday, December 15, from 1-4 pm. I have also asked for 2 tickets for each set of parents.  I have not heard back from my contact there to confirm the request.

   Most costumes are here although there were some costumes ordered late for students registering late and one set of costumes had to be exchanged for a larger size.  Another challenge was trying to make some costumes work for our spring show, Lion King.

   COSTUMES WILL BE GIVEN OUT AT YOUR CHILD’S FIRST CLASS IN DECEMBER. PLEASE BE THERE TO HELP YOUR CHILD INTO THEIR COSTUME.
   We have also been asked to do some dance numbers at the Capitol on Saturday, December 21st at 11 a.m.
We will be taking Ballet IV and Ballet V dance numbers for that time slot.

Class payments and costume payments have to be current before costumes or shoes can be taken home.


This year has been the year of the workshop, testing and training for Hosanna Dance.  A look back:

February-Cecchetti training in Sioux Falls SD
April – Cecchetti testing in Sioux Falls SD
June – Cecchetti workshop, Sioux Falls SD
July – Dramatic Truth Summer Intensive, Kansas City MO
September – Ballet Magnificat Workshop, Casper WY
September – Cecchetti Training, Sioux Falls SD
October – Cecchetti Testing, Sioux Falls SD
October – Dance Network SD Conference, Spearfish SD

   Ms. Sunny, Emily and Noreen Plumage, Josh and Sarah Easter traveled to Casper, WY September 20th for a 2 day workshop with Ballet Magnificat and to see their performance of The Arrival and Deliver Us.  It was so good to see the company again.  We had last taken classes from them in 2010 in Yankton.  Good classes were taken in ballet, jazz, pointe and pas de deux.
   October 27th, Ms. Sunny, Emily Plumage, Josh, and Sarah Easter traveled to Spearfish for the 32nd Annual Conference of Dance Network of South Dakota with excellent classes in modern, tap and musical theater with another Limon dancer, Kurt Douglas, and Brian Marcum, former Broadway dancer, and now instructor at Oklahoma City University.  A special treat were the Flamenco classes with Lena Jacome.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.Rev 1:8

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.
