Greetings, Hosanna Dancers & Parents!

We would like to go on record to say two months is not enough time to get a children's storybook ballet ready. Consequently, we will not be able to start run-through rehearsals until Monday, November 21. Please check the calendar for important information.

Another important date change is the date of our spring show. Riggs Theatre has informed us that they are not letting anyone book the theater in May. They are closing it for maintenance. This has forced us to schedule our performance of Esther for June 9 & 10, 2017. Dress rehearsal will be June 9 and there will be two performances on June 10.

Josh Easter, Sarah Easter, and Ms. Sunny have been to two dance workshops in October: the Dance Network of South Dakota Convention in Rapid City on October 7 & 8, and the Northern Plains Cecchetti Council Fall Workshop in Sioux Falls on October 21-23.

Hosanna Dance students Becca Brusven and Rae McVey attended the Rapid City workshops where they got to take classes from Repertory Dance Theater Company from Salt Lake City. This excellent modern dance company taught classes in modern, jazz, ballet, and hip hop.

Deni and Gracie Zeeb and Rae McVey were the Hosanna Dancers attending the Sioux Falls workshop with Ms. Sunny, Ms Sarah and Mr Josh. Ballet classes were taught in the first six grades of Cecchetti Technique, jazz, modern, musical theater, hip hop, lyrical, clogging, pointe, and theraband.
Three Hosanna Dance students are preparing to take their Cecchetti Grade II exam in March. They are Deni Zeeb, Gracie Zeeb, and Becca Brusven.

Josh and Sarah Easter are preparing to take their Cecchetti Grade IV Teacher's exam some time in 2017 and Ms. Sunny is planning to take her Cecchetti Grade VI teacher's exam also some time in 2017.

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.
