Dance in Leander: Give the Gift of Dance!

Do your kids have a long Christmas list of the latest toys?  You hunt for those toys, wrap them, watch your kids open them, and think they will play with them for a long time.  Shortly after Christmas, those toys are pushed aside and forgotten about it.  Try something different this year.  Give an experience they won’t forget!

With the gift of dance classes, your child will have something to look forward to each week.  Parents often tell us that their child counts down the days until “dance day”.  Dance classes are not only a great way to keep active, they provide so many other valuable lessons.  Students learn focus, poise, musicality, and body awareness.  They also learn how to follow directions, work towards a goal, and work together with others.  All of these lessons are valuable, but what we love the most at Center Stage is the friendships the dancers make.

Give us a call today to sign up for dance lessons in the new year (512-259-0445).  We can help you find the perfect class for the dancer in your life.  We can also help you find some dance shoes, a leotard, or a tutu to put under the tree!  This Christmas give a gift that they will remember forever.

Dance in Leander: Company Auditions July 20th

Are you interested in having your child audition for a competitive dance team?  If your child has been taking dance classes and is wanting a greater challenge, he or she may be ready for a competitive team.  It’s not too late to audition for the 2018-2019 season.

At Center Stage in Leander, we offer competitive dance teams that only require 2-3 hours of dance classes per week depending on age and company team.  Most dance studio teams in the Leander/Cedar Park area require far more hours per week of classes and rehearsals.  At Center Stage, we only require 2-3 hours so that our dancers can participate in other activities outside of the studio such as school dance teams, sports, gymnastics, girl scouts, etc.  Most of our dancers can meet their company requirements in only one or two days per week at the studio leaving other days open for sports, family time, homework, or possibly more dance classes if they choose.

Our company teams start in August with a Company Camp where they do team building activities, technique, and choreography.  Our fall classes begin in September.  The Center Stage company dance teams will be participating in a few local events in Leander during the year – the Old Town Christmas Festival and the Living Leander Expo.  We go to 2-3 dance competitions in the spring time in the area.  This past year we went to Lago Vista, Pflugerville, and Kyle, so you do not have to spend a great deal of money on traveling.

We offer Jazz/Lyrical and Hip Hop dance companies at Center Stage in Leander.  Company members can only have 3 unexcused absences which means company members are in class every week ready to learn.  We don’t have to spend time reteaching choreography; therefore, students learn at a faster rate in company classes.  Company offers a great opportunity for your child to excel in dance!

Our Summer Company Placements for the 2018-2019 season are on July 20th.  There is a $10 audition fee, and your child can audition for as many companies as he/she would like.  A week after placements, we will let you know if your child is ready for company.  If he or she is not ready yet, we will recommend which classes would be best suited for him or her.
