“How Far Will I Go?”

Where they demonstrated their knowledge of level changes, tempo changes, partner work, locomotor movements and character interpretation.

Karissa loved dancing with these amazing little girls and was so proud of their achievements!

Thank you to all of the parents and family members that came to cheer them on!

Challenge Accepted by the Intermediate/Advanced Master Class:)


Stefanie challenged the intermediate/advanced class to learn a longer more intricate piece in Latin Contemporary Jazz and they performed beautifully even in dramatic lighting!

HUGE Thank You to Stefanie Roper for traveling from NYC to give these dancers a taste of a professional audition during last week’s Master Class.

They loved every minute of it!
