A Note from the Director...

We hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday season! The staff and I want to thank everyone for the nice cards and gifts. We really appreciate your kind gestures, but teaching all of you is our favorite gift of all!

Congratulations to everyone who participated in lots of fun events in December. Holiday Cabaret helped us raise $11,000.00 for the Meg’s Smile Foundation! Wow! At Cabaret, we were very proud to have awarded Keeley Mizell with the Make An Impression Summer Study Scholarship. This $300.00 scholarships is awarded each year as a way to recognize a gifted young dancer who shows great potential commitment, and passion for dance! Thanks to all of the classes who participated in this year’s “Act Two” event!!

The Christmas Parade dancers were terrific! Thanks to everyone who performed, choreographed, volunteered, or supported a dancer this holiday season, I am very proud and thankful for all you do. Bravo!

We are dancing down Main St., USA this summer (June 20-24) and hope you can join us!

One of our favorite ways to join dance and famly fun!

Love Lock Wall

Traveling in France this summer, I was fascinated with the “Love Lock Bridge.” We set out to create a small version in the studio to connect with something really cool across the ocean. Special thanks to Sean Coleman, Dance Dad Extraordinaire, for creating a gorgeous wall in studio 148.

Want to share in this?
Buy a lock at the front desk for $5.00. Have your dancer write their name on the lock and the place in the world that they dream of visiting. Add it to the love lock wall!

We think that dreaming big and setting intentions are super important skills.

100% of the proceeds will support the continuing dance education for our 60 kids in Costa Rica!
Thanks for your support!

We Love Our Dancers!

What do we love most in the world? Our dancers!

We are creating a collage of all of our dance family members in the break room of 136.

Bring your 4x6 black and white photo in a black frame for us to add to our wall.

They say that keeping framed pictures of people you love increases happiness...
I believe it, too!

Dancin' Our Way to Costa Rica!
“The Children Who Had Roses For Noses.”

“The Children Who Had Roses For Noses.” by Richard Dobbs and Marilyn Chappell

PS... I have to share some exciting news…

My dear friend Richard Dobbs (gifted artist) and I have been working on a Children’s book entitled “The Children Who Had Roses For Noses.” I wrote the book when I was pregnant with Skylar. My husband Chris and I had been told that she might have Downs Syndrom, but we made the choice not to do further testing and risk losing Skylar. When she was born perfectly healthy, we were thrilled but had a whole new sense of compassion for parents having children with special needs. I told Richard about the book and that I wondered if he would be interested in illustrating it. He shared with me that he has a sister with Downs Syndrom and would love to be a part of this.

The story is really about celebrating our uniqueness and unconditional love. You can check out our book at We hope you like it!

Help a Dancer!

Do you have a way that you could support someone in our dance family? We can share acts of kindness in a variety of ways. During what has been a very difficult time for many families, here are some ways you might be able to help….

  • Offer to donate gently used shoes or leotards to share with others.
  • Pay it forward; offer to pay for a costume or one month’s tuition for a struggling family.
  • Organize a carpool to lesson the burden of transportation.
  • Volunteer your services (props construction, sewing, graphic design work, working at events) to help dancers organizing events.
  • Pledge to say something positive to every dancer you come in contact with for a whole week. Who knows, it just might become a habit and kindness is contagious!
  • Be creative! We’re open to any suggestions!

We work hard to reach out to our community, but we also want to take care of each other! Thanks for your help!
