Shoes too tight?

Are those dance shoes feeling a little snug? We have a rack with gently used dance shoes avaliable in Studio 144. Please feel free to stop by and help yourself!

Have some to donate? We would love to recycle them for you! Bring your shoes and add them to the shelf! All shoes are $5.00 and will go to the SDC scholarship fund.

COVID Update

HSSOD, you are doing an incredible job with honoring all of our “Love Guidelines” to keep everyone safe! Huge thanks to our weekly volunteers who show up ready to clean all surfaces throughout the evening! Here are a few reminders to keep in mind as we continue to work together...

- All studios are disinfected daily and we have invested in air filters that will keep the air flow as healthy as possible.

“True Colors” - Spring Recital Information

As always, we remain hopeful that our world will continue to heal, and life will move towards normalcy. The way that our dance family has supported us through many challenging months has been outstanding. We will never be able to fully express our gratitude, but we hope that you feel our love through our actions. We are so committed to creating wonderful opportunities for our dancers, and we are excited to look ahead!

We’ve listed our tentative dates regarding the Young Dancer and older kids recitals. Our plan is move forward as scheduled, but we need everyone to be prepared for pivots along the way.

As with everything pandemic related, we are following the guidelines and restrictions to keep everyone safe. If we can be at Fletcher Opera House, then we will be at Fletcher. If we can be at Hope Church, then we will be at Hope Church. If neither of these are available, then we will rent a huge tent and have a great show at the studio! In other words, the show must and will go on.

Recitals are not about locations, they are about the dancers creating work to share their true colors. We will wait on ticket sales until we are closer to performance dates. Stay tuned for updates! As always, we are thankful for this incredible community!

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!
