A Note from the Director

We hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday season! The staff and I want to thank everyone for the nice cards and gifts. We really appreciate your kind gestures, but teaching all of you is our favorite gift of all!

Congratulations to everyone who participated in lots of fun events in December. Holiday Cabaret helped us raise $8,250.00 for the Meg’s Smile Foundation! Wow! Thanks to all of the classes who participated in this year’s “Act Two” event!!

Special thanks to the Town of Holly Springs for creating the performance opportunity for Springs Dance Company through the Festival of Trees. When you’ve missed live performances, you welcome any chance to perform! We are very proud of our dancer!

Congratulations to all of the dancers cast in Dance Theatre! We are so proud of you! We are so excited to see “Lost in the Museum.”

We are so excited to welcome 2021! We had an awesome New Years Dance Jam to get the new year off to a terrific start. By offering so many classes, dancers were able to move their bodies in joyful ways all day! Here are some other things we have to look forward to in 2021

  • Dance Theatre Performance
  • "Dance As If No One Is Watching" Performance
  • Dance Trip to Hawaii to perform at Pearl Harbor
  • Disney performance at the Magic Kingdom
  • Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2021
  • Recitals

We want to offer our sincere thanks to everyone for believing in us throughout 2020. We know that these have been difficult times for everyone, but the HSSOD spirit has remained strong! We love our dance family and we are filled with hope as we dance forward!

Looking forward to an amazing 2021! Let’s dance!!

Holly Springs Cancels Christmas Parade

For the 1st time in 23 years, we will not see that beautiful “sea of red” dancing down Main St. We are disappointed, but we know that we are all trying to keep our community safe.

Anyone who still wishes to purchase the classic red HSSOD sweatshirt has until Nov. 14th. This would make a great gift for your dancer!

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!
