Before the season started our Level 5 spent a Friday floating the Weber River as a team building activity. I think we flipped five tubes but we all made it home safe and sound and had a fantastic time. These girls are an awesome team both on and off the stage.
Often when a dancer puts on a costume for the first time, their dance really comes alive. It helps them transform into the character they are meant to be and can take their performance to a new level. In the same way, dressing appropriately for class helps our dancers be focused and give their class work the respect and effort it deserves. Help your dancer succeed by being sure she’s dressed appropriately for dance class every week. Most recommended dancewear is available for purchase at Dance Concepts. (We don't carry half soles but you can buy them through the link below or at Dancewear Inc.) If you have any questions about what is required for your specific class please shoot us an email :) (more…)
Our Spring Recital is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited to see all our dancers perform! Recital is Tuesday, June 13th. We have 2 shows, one at 6:00 pm and the other at 8:00 pm. Below is the show order and also shows which dance is in which show. Recital will be held at Murray High School (5440 State Street). Tickets are on sale now!
Hillcrest High School invited us to perform in their drill team showcase, so last night levels 4 and 5 got to do a bonus performance. We took In This Shirt, Wicked Games, and History Repeating. We all spent an hour in a technique class together, ran a quick rehearsal and then loaded up to go perform. It was fun to change it up a little from our standard Tuesday. (more…)
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and this past weekend, we were a beautiful village. I saw some amazing dancing, but today, I’m proud of our team for another reason. We took care of each other in a way that makes me so happy to be part of this DC family. Jessica and Natalie stepped in when Tracy couldn’t make the trip to Logan (get well soon!) and took care of Kelli with the same love and care they give their own dancers. Mari made sure we all stayed fed. Dana jumped in to help with a hair emergency. Tuija offered up earrings. Shandy took care of an ill dancer. Parents helped run music for rehearsals. Our dancers went so far above and beyond in the way they took care of each other I can’t even tell you the details ;) Everyone drove each other’s dancers around, shared what they had and functioned like a true team. I feel bad that I can’t name them all, but every time I turned around there was help being offered. We were short on staff this weekend and you guys stepped up in every way possible. (more…)
Hi! My name is Ali Hyde and I teach ballet. I’ve done ballet for as long as I can remember and absolutely love it! I grew up in Sandy, went to Hillcrest High and then moved to Logan to go to Utah State University. I graduated in Family Finance and loved how practical my degree was and how I can use it in my daily life even if I don’t have an actual 9-5 job. Read more
