OUR NEW-AND-IMPROVED WEBSITE IS HERE!
Welcome to my very first Studio Director’s Blog! This is something I’ve always wanted to do…and our new website gave me the perfect opportunity to start!
So…what do you think of our new site? We partnered with Olathe Public Schools and the eCommunications Department at Olathe Northwest to give our website a facelift.
Special thanks to ONW Junior Allyson Chitwood for all her hard work and to Mr. Mark Olson for guiding the process. Take some time to navigate through the tabs and see what you think. Would love to get your feedback!
In other news, Italy was FABULOUS. So grateful to my teachers and staff who held down the fort and took our competition team to Stage One in Tulsa. Everyone seems to agree that it was a long weekend, but super-successful! Lots of great awards and recognition were given to our dancers, the last Regional Competition for our Seniors.
Rehearsals for our Recital Alumni Dance are starting this Thursday, May 5 and will be held EVERY THURSDAY IN MAY at 7:30 pm at the studio. We’re doing the TIME WARP and it’s going to be a blast!
Speaking of recital, don’t forget tickets go on sale next Saturday (May 14) at the studio—11 am until 1 pm After that you can pick up your tickets in the Dance Shop during regular hours (Monday through Thursday 4pm-8pm). Remember it’s reserved seating!
Our Dancewear Donation Drive was a huge success! We collected over 100 pairs of jazz, tap and ballet shoes, plus tons of leotards, costumes and other dancewear. You may have noticed that big pink box in the lobby? Donations were sorted over Spring Break and delivered to Take the Stage KC and Em’s Spotlight. Both non-profits provide dance to children in underserved areas. If you’re interested in attending the annual recital for Take the Stage KC on May 10, contact Lisa Hunt.

I’m looking forward to Recital next month (SOON!). Can’t wait to see all you beautiful dancers take the stage. Don’t forget to practice practice practice!
Love you bunches,
