Think Spring! Think Summer!

It has been an unusual dance year so far for absences due to illness and injuries occurring in other activities apart from dance making it difficult to complete the list of 20 dances. The dance pieces have been challenging because almost all of them have 3 or 4 dances and groups within each dance. I am blessed for this show to have Josh and Sarah Easter and Emily Plumage doing some choreography.

We are also blessed to have two new young male dancers join us to help with some of the pas de deux work. They are Logan Baker from Murdo and Israel Kanz here from Pierre. Israel danced in our first performance of Sleeping Beauty in 2005.

The physical therapy workshop in January was excellent and benefited everyone but especially those with recurring injuries or recovering from injuries. I would highly recommend Ruth Scott for anyone that is not getting results from treatment they now receive. Her clinic is Great Plains Therapy, Beresford SD.

In February Ms. Sunny, Josh and Sarah Easter and Emily Plumage traveled to Sioux Falls for coaching for their next round of Cecchetti testing. Sarah Easter, Emily Plumage, and Ms. Sunny will be returning March 29 for testing.

We are planning to attend the Cecchetti Sumer Ballet Intensive June 24th-27th in Sioux Falls at Dance Gallery. Any students interested in attending should see Ms. Sunny for a brochure. There will be alternative classes offered in jazz, modern, hip hop, lyrical, pilates and yoga. There is an optional Aladdin musical theater session for younger students 2nd grade through 5th grade. Older students may get to learn choreography from Grease.

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.
