With temperatures still in the 90s, we can’t quite tell that fall has rolled around. Fall brings cooler temperatures, new school years, pumpkin spice lattes, and most importantly, a new dance year!
The start of a new dance year brings exciting changes, opportunities, and a renewed love for dance. It’s not that we really lose our love for dance throughout the year, but by the end of the year the teachers and the students alike are really tired of hearing their recital or competition songs for the 100th or more time. Throughout the summer, the teachers search and search and then search some more to find the perfect song for each of their classes. They then begin thinking about choreography and costumes and creating their visions for the recital. As they get to know their dancers, they make adjustments to their choreography to make sure each dancer is feeling both confident and challenged. It’s exciting!
From our youngest to our oldest dancers, the new dance year brings opportunity for growth as a dancer as well as the opportunity to make new friends. We love watching our youngest dancers come into the studio with their pink tutus and huge smiles! We also love watching our older dancers hanging out with their dance friends in the lobby talking about what they did over the summer. We watch our new company dancers coming in with a bit of nervousness, but those nerves soon turn to smiles as they get to know the other dancers on their team. It’s exciting!
This year we have added new teachers as well as an office manager, Monica. You all will see Monica around the studio. She is looking forward to getting to know all of our Center Stage families. You will also see some new faces as we have added three new teachers – Cornesha, Alissa, and Emma. These ladies are all excited to be a part of the Center Stage family. You can read a little more about their backgrounds on our website.
We thank you all for choosing Center Stage! We look forward to a great new dance year together (and cooler temperatures too)!
