A Note from the Director

This has been an amazing year! We spent last summer having wonderful adventures with our Dance Mission trip to Costa Rica, and performed for so many people this season at things like Sparkcon, N.C. Dance Alliance, Holiday Cabaret, Mozart’s Café, and Dance As If No One Is Watching. We’ve seen so many of our dancers grow so much this season, and are celebrating with three of our graduating seniors who will pursue dance degrees on scholarship. We are so proud of all of our students, and can’t wait for our recitals to share their gifts with you. Check out the year in review boards at the recitals to see all of the wonderful things that have made this season so special.

We have so much information in this newsletter that will help make your child’s recital experience extraordinary! Want to win free tuition for a class? Read on and learn how! Please contact us if you have any questions. We are here to help!

From all of us at HSSOD, we want to sincerely thank you for all of your love and support. We have the best dance family! ON WITH THE SHOW!
Love, Marilyn

“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!
