A Note from the Director...

Thank you to all of the dancers who worked so hard to make our 18th Annual Holiday Cabaret a great success! We are so excited to be supporting the Meg’s Smile Foundation! For more information on this amazing organization, visit

Please feel free to donate during our “Act Two” sharings Dec. 11-16. Please check with your teacher to see if your child’s class is participating. Sharing our gifts and talents is one of our favorite things!

Special thanks to Kaleigh Tingelstad for organizing a canned food drive for the Food Bank and thank you to all who brought a canned food item to help a family in need this holiday season!

Coat Drive

Megan and Madison Stolarik are organizing a coat drive starting at the Cabaret and continuing through December for the charity, Note in the Pocket.

They provide needed clothing to children who are identified by various schools and social service agencies in the community as impoverished or homeless and needing clothing to wear to school. They can accept any new or gently used coats but they are asking for just one new or gently used coat per person. The greatest need is for coats for children sizes 5 through 16.

We will have a collection location at the studio until winter break. Please consider donating to this worthy cause!

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!
