"Today I had the opportunity to take my daughter to see this new class. We SAT and watched and after a while my daughter got up and started to dance. The teacher, Miss Michelle, came over, took my daughter by the hand and invited her to join the class. I was so impressed. What a fabulous place to make a new child feel so welcome.  The other girls in the class were also fabulous and helped make my daughter feel welcome. Looking so forward to joining this new school. Thank you so much!"

Register Now for Summer Classes!

by Michelle Jackman on 03/28/18


Thank you for inquiring about our studio online!  I am attaching our summer information here for you.  It's a great time to introduce our program!  

For our 3 to 7 year olds:  We offer two ballet camps in the summer where we have three different princesses that we focus on.  We begin with an art and craft, introduce the princess of the day, learn a princess ballet class and dance, and have a snack.  At the end of the 3 days, parents may come and watch while we show you what they've learned, play games, and enjoy a fun tea party treat! 

For our 8 year olds through College:  We offer 1, 2, or 3 weeks of summer classes beginning the second week of July.  We'll have daily ballet technique class; floor barre, conditioning, and flexibility class; choreography (learning how to create a dance or ballet); pre-pointe and pointe class; ballet variations class (learning a dance from a famous ballet); turns & jumps; as well as learn how to sew pointe shoe ribbons and creating a "performance preparation" kit (hair items, first-aid items, personal hygiene items, etc.).

In order to register for our summer classes, you may click on the HOME TAB to register online.  Hurry before classes fill!


Please feel free to reach out if you have any other questions.  I'd love to discuss them with you.

Have a beautiful week!

Happy New Year!

by Michelle Jackman on 01/01/18

Hello Families,

Welcome Back and Happy New Year!  Classes begin once again on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.  We have lots of things to be excited about:  New friends in the studio, new babies (Ms. Kali had Lilian Lou on Dec. 17th!  Ms. Megan will have her baby boy on January 2nd!), clues to find out what this year's Year-End Finale Performance story ballet will be about, January Review/Parent Observation week (Jan 22-26th), and Bring A Friend To Class Week (Jan 29-Feb 1st).  

As we begin a new year, I want to say how grateful I am for all of my dancers and their families.  I know I may say that a lot - but I hope you know just how deep my gratitude really is.  I love the quote: "In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you." ~Buddha

Thank you for bringing so much to me and my family - I truly hope I can do the same in return.

My Heart & Studio to Yours,

Ms. Michelle
