A Note from the Director...

On behalf of the teachers and staff, we want to welcome you to Holly Spring’s School of Dance’s 20th Anniversary Season! We are delighted that you have made the choice to be a part of our dance family.

I spent the summer pursuing professional growth opportunities. I wanted to experience dance in different cities, and for different purposes. I spent a week immersed in an inspiring community at the American Dance Festival. I had a unique opportunity to perform with Heidi Latsky, as well as study with Liz Lerman, one of my heroes. I attended lots of concerts from the best Modern Dance companies in the world. I left feeling very full. I traveled to N.Y. to study at Peridance, and to let the city energize me in new ways. Finally, I flew to Lost Angeles to attend the Dance Teacher Summit where I took amazing classes and seminars to give me a fresh perspective on our amazing art form. In other words, I never want to stop growing.

What’s up this season?

  • Open Dance Nights
  • Parades- Plans begin in January for Macy’s 2018!
  • Fall Festival
  • Thriller Reconstruction
  • Dance Theatre Performance
  • Solo Concert
  • Holiday Cabaret
  • 20th Anniversay Recitals!

We are looking forward to the BEST year ever! We can’t wait to witness your child grow this season. Feel free to contact me at:
Love, Marilyn

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!
