Dancer Spotlight- Hannah Perez- 10 Year Student

Hannah Perez is 15 years old and has been dancing at 5678 for 10 years! Outside of dance, Hannah loves art. The best part of Hannah’s experience with 5678 so far has been how inspiring the teachers are and the friends she has made. Jess is one of Hannah’s favorite teachers because she’s always nice and is more than happy to help you when you need help. Hannah’s favorite style of dance is Contemporary, and her all-time favorite dance recital theme has been “A Moment in Time” (2019). Hannah feels 5678 has benefitted her life by giving her confidence and courage. In the future, Hannah hopes to become an artist or graphic arts designer!


Dancer Spotlight- Trinity Little- 10 Year Student

Trinity Little is 14 years old and has been dancing at 5678 for 10 years! Outside of dance, Trinity loves singing at church, working with kids, and watching anime. The best part of Trinity’s experience with 5678 so far has been the recitals; she loves being on stage and spending time with the other dancers backstage. Jess and Kim have been some of her favorite dance teachers because they are both fun and kind. Trinity’s all-time favorite dance has been “Proud Mary” from “The Name Game” (2018) recital and her all-time favorite recital theme has been “On Broadway” (2016). Trinity feels that 5678 has benefitted her life because she has become more confident and has made some of her best friends.

In the future, Eva wants to be a child psychologist.


Dress Code

Dress- It’s getting colder here!  Please dress dancers in layers so they are warm when dance begins.  However, they need to remove sweaters or jackets after warm-up.  Please don’t have dancers wear big bulky jackets into class.  We suggest a light long sleeve shirt or ballet sweater. Please write their name in their clothes! 

Hair – Please make sure that your daughter's hair is done according to 5678 Dance Studio’s dress code.  All ballet students must wear a bun for ballet.  Jazz, Tap, and Contemporary/Lyrical dancers need to have their hair pulled back in a ponytail.


Daddy Daughter and Mommy Munchkin Dance

Please keep in mind that the balance of $70 is due by February 1st. The 50% deposit that was due upon registration is non-refundable. We will have 5 “Daddy Daughter Date Nights” and 5 Mommy Munchkin Practice Dates to learn and rehearse the dance.  . The dates can be found under "2020 Recital" and then under "Daddy Daughter/Mommy Munchkin" on the website. (https://www.5678dancemodesto.com/2018specialitydances)



We appreciate your cooperation regarding the lobby rules –

1. No eating or drinking is allowed in the studio.

2. Please make sure dancers & siblings are not running around the lobby.

3. Please make sure that your dancer knows to put their dance bag in one of the cubbies in the studio or under a chair in the lobby.

4. Please do not move the chairs in the lobby.

5. Please make sure we are using a normal speaking volume. During breaks in the music, all of the noise from the lobby can be distracting to the dancers in class.


Winter Dance Camp-

We will be having a six-week winter dance camp on Friday evenings from January 24th-February 28th. This camp is open to new and current dancers. There will be Ballet and Hip-Hop classes for ages 3-12.  This is a great way to introduce your dancer to a new style or just have another day of dance.  Registration opened in December and there are still a few spots left!
