My apologies....I had to close online ticket sales a few days early. We were selling out and I wanted to make sure I had tickets for "at studio" sales.

To answer the age old questions:
From a parent: Why would I spend so much money and time on dance lessons for my child?
From a student/dancer: Why would I spend so much time, energy and make a commitment to something that I will no longer pursue after high school?

Well, let me tell you a secret.
Parent/Guardian, you don’t pay for your child to dance on stage once a year. Do you want to know what you are paying for?
Dancer, you don't spend all that time, energy and make a commitment for nothing. It's not for nothing. It's for a lot more!
This is the answer:

You pay/spend all that time for your child/you to learn to be disciplined.

You pay/spend all that time for your child/you to learn to take care of their mind and body.

You pay/spend all that time for your child/you to learn how to work with others and be a good team member; and to develop creativity.

You pay/spend all that time for your child/you to learn to face disappointment when he/she doesn’t get what he/she expected, and discovers that it is essential that he/she works harder.

You pay/spend all that time so that your child/you learns to achieve goals.

You pay/spend all that time for your child/you to understand that it takes hours and hours of hard work and training to obtain results and that success does not come overnight.

You pay/spend all that time for the opportunity that your child/you has to make life lasting friendships.

You pay/spend all that time for your child/you so that your child/you spends time at rehearsals or in class and not in front of a screen.

You pay/spend all that time for those moments when he/she/you comes home so tired that he/she/you has no more time to waste.

You pay/spend all your time for all the teachings from this beautiful artistic discipline: responsibility, commitment, self-confidence, conviviality, etc.

I could go on, but just to summarize I’ll tell you that you don’t pay/spend all that time just for dance classes, you pay/spend all that time for the opportunities that this discipline offers him/her/you to develop skills that will become quite useful all along his/her/your life and that will give him/her/you an opportunity to treasure life. It has done that for me <3

 
 

“Dance is an art that imprints on the soul. It is with you every moment, even after you give it up. It is with you every moment of your day and night.”
