Ringing in the New Year
Happy New Year!
It’s time for a new year and a new semester – a fresh start!
Although the regular dance season has been in session for months, the spring semester is like its own new beginning.
SDC students will begin working on recital routines during the next couple of weeks, preparing for the Spring Concert at the end of April. While class time will continue to focus on building technique and skill, the element of performance now comes into play too.
Returning to class (or starting a new one) in January is the ideal time for any dancer to recalibrate. Even for the youngest preschooler, it’s a new chance to work on those “listening ears” or to bounce a little higher during your “bunny hops!” For the hard-working second-grader, there’s the opportunity to polish your pirouette technique or gather the confidence to try freestyling in hip hop. And for the experienced teenager, it’s the clean slate you wanted – to push a little harder, sweat a little more, and reach for your goals.
We’re looking forward to getting back to work in the classroom this week, and we can’t wait to leap into this fresh start with all of our dancers!
See you Wednesday!
