Dancer Spotlight- Lily Flores- 15 Year Student

Lily is 17 years old and has been dancing with 5678 since she was 2 years old. She says that she dances because it helps her take her mind off things and because she loves dancing on stage with her friends. The best part of her experience so far has been making life-long friendships, and that 5678 has benefitted her life by teaching her to be responsible and offering her many opportunities. So far, Lily’s favorite dance was “Vogue” from a competition, because the music stopped on them during Nationals! Now she says it’s funny to look back and watch the video. Her favorite recital has been The Name Game (2018) because she loved all of her dances that year. Tune In and Dance (2014) comes in a close second place because she loved Opening Number that year. One of Lily’s favorite teachers is Miss Kim because her classes are always fun and she has always been very supportive and full of good advice.  Outside of dance, Lily is a cheerleader at Beyer and she likes to paint and read! In the future, Lily hopes to go to college after graduating high school.

 

Dancer Spotlight- Madisyn Bledsoe - 10 Year Student

Madisyn is 12 years old and has been dancing with 5678 since her 3rd birthday! She says that dancing for 10 years has been such a fun experience, and that as she’s gotten older and advanced to new levels it’s become more challenging. She enjoys the challenge though, works hard, and practices at home! Madisyn says the best part about her experience with 5678 so far has been recitals (her favorite Recital dance was “Go” from Purple Reign (2017)) and being on the Fierce Fleet team because it’s so fun to show off all the hard work to an audience!  Madisyn’s favorite teacher is Miss Mandy, and thinks that her time here has taught her to work hard and push herself to try new things. Outside of dance, Madisyn has been a Girl Scout for 7 years and has been in 4H for 4 years! She loves to bike ride with her family, play with her dogs, and hang out with her friends. In the future, Madisyn hopes to become an Assistant Instructor at 5678! 

  

Costumes

Paperwork on how to order your child’s dancers costume was sent home in November.  If you have not received your paperwork, please contact us or come to the front desk to pick it up, or we can email you your child’s recommended sizes if you need us to.  If you have not ordered your costume yet, now is the time to do it!  You may think that it is too early, given that our show is 6 months away.  However, for the costume companies to produce costumes, they need to be ordered by December 11th to guarantee them in time for pictures in April/May and our recital in June.  All costumes for the 2021 Recital need to be ordered through www.5678dancemodesto.com/store.  We can assist you with any questions you may have.

 

2021 Recital Music

Classes will start to begin their recital dances in January & February, so attendance (even digital attendance) is important!  We will send out a digital copy of your dancer’s song to everyone via email once the music has been cut.

 

Daddy Daughter/Mommy Munchkin

In years past, we have done Daddy Daughter and Mommy Munchkin sign ups at this point. This season, we are approaching these dances a little differently. As some of you are aware, we are giving families who signed up last year an option to participate in this year’s Recital. We are currently working through some logistics regarding costumes, so please keep an eye open for an announcement coming soon regarding sign ups ! (If you signed up last season and chose to roll over your enrollment to this season, we will be reaching out soon as well!)

2021 Dance Recital

This year, our annual dance recital will be held June 10th, 11th, and 12th at the Gallo Center for the Arts in the Mary Stuart Rodgers Theatre.  Our annual dance recital is optional. More details are available online and in future newsletters. Please email us or tell the front desk if your child will NOT be participating in this year's recital. Even with the current circumstances, we are still planning for a Recital and will keep you all informed every step of the way!
