Just a reminder that I am teaching my Wednesday 9 AM Ballet Class on June 5th, tomorrow.


See you then!


Miss Cecil


Our summer term has begun! We have our Teen/Adult Intermediate Ballet, Advanced Beginning Ballet, and Pre-Ballet, all starting this week. Register on our website or pay by the drop-in class.


Also beginning tomorrow (6/5) is the special summer schedule with the Levys. See below for details and their contact information.

Summer Intensive Workshop Schedule– subject to change– According to Available Studio each day/time. Classes scheduled can change depending upon interest & enrollment – 

Please enroll today to ensure that your class will occur each day of the week as scheduled.


The SI {Summer Intensive} schedule is highlighted in blue/light blue, and is a cooperative-program aimed at developing your talents. These classes will be subject to a minimum enrollment out-of necessity due to studio rental requirements.


  • The Afternoon SI class (combined with pointe, character, variations, etc...) is for Intermediate-Advanced & Advanced students (usually age 13 & up with several years of training – there are exceptions made for boys/men who want men's technique and pas de deux class) Please contact Ballet Master Jonathon Levy below.

The Afternoon/Evening Young Dancer Workshop classes are designed to give beginning & intermediate dancers a small taste of what summer intensive training is like, by combining ballet & other forms of dance in each class. 

  • The Beginner Dancer level  is for dancers with six months to three-years of dance experience between ages 6-8, and/or for any true-beginning students ages 8 and up. These classes will begin with ballet technique, and then work on contemporary, character, and/or jazz dance forms.

  • The Open-Level Workshop classes are for those, ages 9 & up with 2 or more years of dance training, this level is also recommended if you are not able to attend the classes at Noon, or if you are unsure about your level of dance and are over the age of 11. These classes also start with ballet, and will combine other forms such as: character, contemporary & jazz dance in the class. 

SI Single Class/Drop In Rate: $25 (for 90 minute classes): $20 (for 60 minute classes )

SI weekly rates: TBD – information will be available ASAP.

Private Coaching – Negotiable (Standard Rate is usually $60/hr – which is negotiable for long-term sessions)

Good job! Everything is coming together. Tomorrow -- Friday -- the Theatre doors will be open at 4 pm for a 4:30 warmup with Mr Walker for our more advanced dancers.

Dancers who work with Miss Grace & with me, should arrive between 4:15 & 4:45.

Dress Rehearsal curtain will rise promptly at 6pm.

Also, best for your dancer would be to have sold out shows. If every performing family bought two more tickets for each performance, we would be in much better shape. The more tickets sold, the better for all involved. Please treat any friends, neighbors and relatives to tickets to our truly wonderful show.

Thank you!

Miss Cecily

Greetings Dance Family!


We had a drop-off in ticket sales yesterday. We still need to sell more tickets for the Sunday show, and time is running out before we will be hit with more service charges from our ticketing service. 


Please buy more Sunday tickets today, as soon as you can!


Miss Cecily

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

Ticket sales are going strong, dancers and friends. However, there still aren't enough sales on the Sunday show. Please buy your sunday tickets ASAP!


Let's keep it up! 


Miss Cecily

Monday, May 20th, 2019

Good ticket sales since last night, everyone! But we still need to sell more tickets ASAP, especially for the Sunday show!


​We need to get our sales over 100 for each show before the end of the day!


Let's keep it up! 


Miss Cecily

Sunday, May 19th, 2019

Hello, Performers, Friends, And Families,


Please, purchase your tickets for BOTH performances immediately. 


I just received an email from Tututix regarding extra charges for their service if minimum sales of 100 tickets have not been reached within the next 24 hours. We do NOT want to incur these unnecessary charges!!!


Tututix has changed its rules; the minimum has always been 25 tickets by this point, not 100. 


We are not where we should be yet, and we certainly can solve this problem NOW. If you all get tickets right away instead of delaying, not only will we avoid these charges, we will avoid High Anxiety for staff and dancers alike!


Consider this a personal request !


Thank you, in advance. 


Miss Cecily

Monday, May 13th, 2019

Everyone should buy their tickets here, ASAP.
