The last competition of the season is always bitter sweet. We’ve spent the last 8 months watching our team’s dances, and dancers, grow and evolve. We’ve seen so much progress from the first day back in classes, to the first time on stage, to where we are now. Our dancers have dealt with illness and injury. They’ve practiced being good winners, and good losers too. They’ve done things that they were scared of and came out braver people because of it. It’s a little sad to be saying goodbye to the dances we know, but we’re excited and already looking forward to jumping into next year and making it even better yet.
Here it is… your Celebrity recap: Continue reading
Our June recital is just a few weeks away. The show will be held at Murray High School. There are shows at 6:00 and 8:00. With your dancer’s costume you should also find a note that says which show you will be performing in, how to do their hair and makeup, and when their class picture is. If your note didn’t make it home (notes have a way of disappearing) please ask for a new one at the front desk.
The show orders can be found below. You’ll want to check the order if your dancer will be performing more than one dance so that you’ll know which costume to arrive in and how long you’ll have to change from one dance to the next.
We work hard to keep our shows a reasonable length. Out of respect for the other performers and their families we ask that you stay for the entire show. Each one will be approximately 90 minutes.
And the show orders are… Continue reading
Every year, Julie’s advanced classes get a chance to prepare a piece of their own choreography and perform it for the rest of the class. The Choreography Challenge is a great way for dancers to start learning how to compose an interesting piece. We always have a lot of fun and are very excited to see what creative movement our dancers will come up with this year!
Thursday, May 23, everyone in levels 3, 4 & 5 will need to come to class ready to perform their prepared piece of choreography! Continue reading

Our competition teams spent this last weekend in Logan at Utah Dance Fest. We started the weekend out early Friday morning with our Mini Team solos. They all gave great performances and you could see real progress from our first competition a month ago. Vienna was honored with a Queen award once again for her ballet solo La Petite.
Lili toughed it out and performed her solo despite not feeling well. She was, unfortunately, the first of many of our dancers to dance through sickness.
