Week One :  Strength & Conditioning / Technique

This week was a successful one at the dance studio! Our dancers learned a variety of styles from two amazing instructors. On Monday, Amanda Aragon started off the week with amazing technique tips and amazing stretch and strength techniques. On Wednesday, Britney Smith taught an amazing combo and inspired many dancers. On Thursday, we wrapped up the week and took a walk to Cottonwood Park. Our dancers had a great week filled with leaps, turns, and tricks


The Contemporary Broadway and Beyond intensive at our dance studio, proved to be an exciting and educational way for dancers to explore the world of Musical Theater. Our professional instructors, Tracey and Thadeus, led the class and showed the dancers how to audition, sing at an audition, and that anything can be used to make rhythms.  In just three days, the dancers learned two entire pieces and put on a wonderful show on Thursday to show off all they had learned. Through this class, Tracey and Thadeus helped the dancers gain confidence and inspired them to be the best performers they can be.

Week three of our summer intensives was so much fun!  Urban Tap & Theatre Jazz classes were taught by Justin Boccitto & Dani Champ from Common Ground. They brought incredible tap technique and an incredible theatre jazz class to our studio. The week was especially successful for our BESD dancers as they learned about tap history and the Shim Sham Shimmy dance. They also worked on call and response during the classes. Our students have been inspired by Justin and Dani's enthusiasm and dedication to teaching this style of dance.
