Holiday Edition 2014 104 E Pleasant Pierre Artistic Director, Sunny Hannum Vol 4

Two down and one to go, workshops that is.  We enjoyed a wonderful weekend of dance with Ballet Magnificat in Sioux Falls October 10, 11 & 12 and the following weekend, five Hosanna dancers and Ms. Sunny all passed their Cecchetti testing with a “pass commend.”  We will be traveling to Mitchell the weekend of October 24 & 25th for the Dance Network of South Dakota classes.

Most of the dances for the December performance of Greatest Gift of All are needing completion and need a lot of practice.  Because of that we are not starting run through rehearsals until Monday, November 17th, from 6 to 8 p.m.  This will still give us 3 run through practices and the dress rehearsal to pull the show together. 

Remember all your costumes need to be paid for and class fees paid up to date, before you can take costumes home.  Costumes will be handed out at regular class times as soon as they all have arrived.  The requested arrival date is November 21st so costumes will be given out that week.

We will begin working on our June performance of Prince of Egypt (The Deliverer) in January.  The first week of January we will take registrations for the second half year.  This would be a good time for children to sign up who missed the fall signup.  No registrations will be taken after January 30 until July 1st.

We will once again be offering summer Cecchetti classes in June for students planning to test during the week of the Cecchetti Summer Intensive June 22 -27th.
Ms. Sunny is planning to attend the teacher’s seminar at the Cecchetti International Summer School July 5 -11 in Holland. Michigan, and the Ballet Magnificat Teachers Workshop July 11-18 in Jackson, Mississippi.
The Easters may be offering some summer dance classes both modern and ballet for dancers wishing to stay in  dance shape over the summer.  That schedule has not yet been set.
We are also hoping to offer some summer dance camps for preschool and kindergarten children.  These would be two week sessions of one hour a week.

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.
