Hawaii Dance Adventure

We had a wonderful opportunity to perform at Pearl Harbor and the Polynesian Cultural Center! Our dancers “Tribute to America” was really fantastic! Additionally, we took hula lessons, hiked Diamond Head, enjoyed a catamaran ride in the Pacific Ocean, and attended an amazing luau. When we celebrated our 20th anniversary by doing this with our dancers, I thought we would never go back. I guess I should never say never! Perhaps your dancer will join me someday!

Updated Class Info!!

Due to the restrictions being lifted, we are thrilled to announce that we will be open for in person classes at the studio beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8th!! The Monday, Sept. 7th day (Labor Day) will be added to the schedule the week of Mon., Nov. 23rd as a make up day. Our virtual class schedule will end this Saturday, Sept. 5th. Anyone who is interested in remaining virtual should contact us immediately. Our new virtual season (for parents who choose this option) will begin as scheduled on Mon., Sept. 14th. We can’t wait to see our dancers next week! PLEASE MAKE SURE TO READ ALL NEW GUIDELINES BELOW…

Let’s dance!!!

Welcome to the Holly Springs School Of Dance! We are so excited that you have chosen to have your dancer share in our 23rd season! We are committed to making every effort to have this be one of the BEST parts of your child’s life! We cannot thank you enough for the endless support, encouragement, and adaptability you’ve all shown. HSSOD has the BEST dance family!

*Of course, the safety of our dance community is our number one priority. With that in mind, please know that we will be following these guidelines…

HSSOD Love Guidelines – We are spreading love, not germs!

Be nice. Be kind. Be happy.

All dancers ages 5 and up will need to join our staff in wearing a mask for all classes. Additionally, please know that everyone will be required to wash or sanitize before entering the studio. Teachers will have their temperatures checked upon arrival to the studio.

Only wear/bring what you need for class. No dance bags, just water bottles. The water fountain will only be available for filling water bottles.

All dancers can be dropped off or walked to class by their parents, but parents must wait in their car. All lobbies will be closed, but you can still visit the office located in studio 144 if you have questions.

Dancers should plan on entering through the front door of the studio and exiting through the back door. The only exception is studio 132 where teachers will escort dancers out before the next class enters. Parents should meet dancers at the back of the studio at the end of class, or have older dancers meet them at a designated location. We will have staff located in the front and back of the building who will regularly be sanitizing door handles and helping anyone who needs assistance.

Since dancers cannot hang out in the lobby areas or outside of the studios in between classes, we are hoping that parents will take advantage of the beautiful field beside the studio during breaks.

Please respect our dance community by staying home if anyone in your household is showing symptoms of illness.

Please be patient with everyone you meet. We’ve all been through a lot, and showing extra loving kindness right now is so important.

HAVE FUN! With all precautions in place, we are confident that our dancers can safely continue to grow by doing what they love.

Know that we are here to support you! Our goal is to create a healthy and happy environment for our dance community. Always do what is best for your family!

* We will communicate through our monthly newsletter which comes out the first of each month. If you are not receiving the newsletter email, please email us with the email address you would like to receive it at and we will add you to the list.

*Let’s Get Social! We post daily to keep you up to date on special events, share inspiration, and give you reminders…

Dancin' Our Way to Costa Rica!
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!
