We successfully completed our first competition season and we are happy to say that we will be moving on to season 2. It was a lot of work and definitely a bigger commitment than many of the girls have ever made, but worth it for the overall outcome which not only includes another Gold and High Gold award, but also noticeable improvement in skill and performance and a renewed enthusiasm for dance and being involved at the studio! That is what we LOVE!!! Some of the team members have been at the studio for several weeks over the summer volunteering their time to help out with our camps and even lending a hand organizing our props, costumes and cds. That is in addition to the first of 2, 15 hour week long intensive programs that we held for the juniors and seniors with Miss Katie and 2 guest ballet teachers, (Olivia Powell for the June week and Rachel White for the week in August).
