This past weekend we had two exciting events going on in the middle Tennessee area. We are so glad that our community strives to bring in master classes, choreographers, and companies to help expose our dance students to the art of dance.
The Tennessee Association of Dance Statewide Conference took place Saturday and Sunday. Students Katie, Madison, Maggie, David and Ms. Megan and Ms. Lindsey were up and out of Spring Hill at 6:00 AM Saturday morning. The day included four 1.5 hour dance classes, two performances, and a lot of running into friends from across the state.
Three of ours students took part in a class audition for summer scholarship. For some of them this was a whole new experience, but a great one never the less.
This event is for students ages 12 & up in an intermediate level or higher. It's a great affordable local conference that we will attend every year. It is always the 3rd week of October. So mark it on your calendars and we hope to see a lot more students attending next year!
Ballet program students Julianna, Reagan,Esabella and Emma all joined Ms. Howell in taking class at Nashville Ballet for a master class event called "Dancing with the Starz".
Company Dancers Kim Ratcliffe and Jon Upleger will be the Guest Teachers for this first Master Class with the “Starz” of Nashville Ballet. Additional classes will be held on January 28, 2011, and on April 15, 2011.
