Working Together Apart!
I love how the Dance Community has come together during this time – supporting one another, helping, sharing words of encouragement, running classes for one another, sharing resources and ideas. We are part of a World Wide Community of Dance Studio owners and Teachers that only want the best for each other.
Most recently, Miss Vada Marvin and her mother Ms Marvin, of 3M Danceworks has partnered up with us to bring a larger variety of classes to our Summer Virtual Program using the Zoom platform!
One Advantage of Zoom classes, is you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home! You can dance indoors or out! Another Advantage is that it doesn’t matter where you are!!! If you are at your cottage, somewhere else on vacation, or if you live anywhere else in the world — as long as you have WiFi and a device – you can dance with us!!!
Classes will run from June 23rd to August 5th. Get the complete schedule here.
Why should we dance?
Dance, as an art form has been passed on from dancer to dancer for hundreds of years. You can contribute to the history of one of the classical arts by becoming a dancer. You also take advantage of many benefits that dance can give you. While dancing you become more aware of your body. As a result you have better posture and build better and stronger muscles.
Ballet and beautiful are almost synonyms. The graceful lines, the music, the choreography and the flow of body and music are the essence of beauty itself. Dance requires you to multi-task like never before. New steps, new movements and new performances all need to be learned at the same time. This will improve your memory and concentration skills like nothing else.
Many of us are not being challenged in our daily lives. Dance is a challenge. Ballet, although it appears to be easy, is one of the hardest dance forms. The sense of achievement that you feel after a good performance cannot be matched.
Dance is like meditation on the move. While performing you can leave behind your “to-do list” and cares of the day. For the time you are in the studio anyway.
You must dance. Life and health demands it.
