A Note from the Director...

Welcome! We are so excited that you have chosen to dance with us! We are going to do everything we can to make this one of the best parts of your child’s life. By reading our monthly newsletter, you will stay in touch with all of the great things happening at HSSOD!

I hope that you and your family had a fabulous summer! We loved our camps and classes at the studio, but I also took some time to experience professional growth opportunities.

I had an incredible summer with amazing dance opportunities with people that I love. Our dancers were chosen to lead the parade at Disney World. We created incredible memories as we danced through the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. We will go back again in 2021 - join us!

We went to Costa Rica for our third dance mission trip! We loved dancing with the kids in San Roque and Carrillos. Check out all of our pictures from July 19-28 on our FB page. I am so incredibly thankful for our team who served in beautiful ways.

Ms. Jillian and I headed to NY for the Dance Teacher Summit for our own professional growth! We took great classes and seminars to gain inspiration heading into the new season.

Springs Dance Company was able to take advantage of a fun opportunity with guest choreographer, Malia Burley. Malia is an alum of HSSOD, and is a current member of the Carolina Panthers Dance Team. I hope you caught their performance at our open house.

Did you see our new rock garden? Have your dancer pain a rock and add to it.

What’s up this season?

  • Fall Festival
  • Thriller reconstruction/Dancer Trunk or Treat
  • Dance Theatre Performances
  • Holiday Cabaret
  • Two NY trips
  • Recitals and so much more!

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: chappell@hollyspringsdance.com
Love, Marilyn

Dancin' Our Way to Costa Rica!
Help a Dancer!
IAMHSSOD20

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!
