Honfest 2014

Student Company Auditions are this Monday September 8th at 7:15pm.  Student Company is an excellent way to improve performance skills, as well as learn how to work as a team, the importance and rewards of hard work and and discipline in a fun, supportive environment.  It is not a technique class, it is run like a professional dance company rehearsal.  It does require more dedication, as students are required to take both ballet and modern or jazz classes at a level appropriate for their age.  Past performances have included the MD State Dance Festival, Artscape, Honfest, Mayor’s Christmas Parade, Baltimore Country Club Annual Holiday Fashion Show, school lecture demonstrations, church services and nursing homes.  Our student company has also been asked to do photo shoots for magazines and music videos.  This year members will also have the option to compete in both group and solo pieces.  Students ages 8 through adult are eligible.  For more info, please contact the studio.  We are looking forward to an EXCITING year!

How has a dance teacher affected your life?

By bsdadmin | Uncategorized

The National Dance Education Organization (NDEO wants to know how a dance teacher has affected your life.  For me, the dance studio became a second home, a place I could escape the stressors of life.  My dance teacher was kind but firm.  She was both feminine and a strong female role model.  She taught me discipline, hard work, determination, grace, confidence and more.  I was painfully shy and had a poor self view.  My dance teacher saw something in me and nurtured it.  It changed my life.  Thank you, JoEllen!

NDEO is currently working to gather testimonial data on the importance of dance teachers and the impact they have on their students. Behind every successful student is a dance teacher who helped make that success possible! Whether you became a professional dancer, a dance teacher, or successful in any other career, NDEO wants to hear what you have to say about the teachers! – Some questions to answer about your own teachers,

– Did you have a dance teacher that impacted your life significantly?

– Do you have any quotes or stories about how and why your dance teacher had such a significant impact?

– If you have not entered into the dance profession – what did you learn from your dance teacher about work ethic, character, professionalism or any other topics that are relevant to your current career path? (For example – Steve Jobs was quoted about how he applied lessons in movement and perception learned in dance class to designing games at Atari.

) – Why do you think dance teachers are important?

You can send your responses to Elizabeth Miles at emiles@ndeo.org  or you can do so in the comment section below.  Let’s let the wonderful dance teachers out know how important they are.  Trust me, it makes all the hard stuff worth it when we see our students go on to be successful not just in dance, but in life.
