Celebrating 27 Years of Dancing the Dream!

We are excited for our upcoming dance performance in June 2021!  The dancers are working hard in class to perfect their technique and learn their recital dances.  We know you will be proud of what your dancer has accomplished this year.

 

No Dance Classes

5678 Dance Studio will be closed for classes for the following days:

May 31st – Memorial Day

May Spotlight Dancer- 10 Year Student- Noelise Miranda

Noelise was 5 when she started dancing with 5678. Outside of dance, she enjoys playing sports and instruments. She says that dance is fun, and that learning such a variety of dances and meeting so many new people are why she continues to dance. She also says that dance has helped her with her performance skills and confidence. Noelise's favorite teacher is Miss Kim because she always believes in her students and never gives up on them when they struggle. So far, her favorite Recital dance has been "Beat It" because she's always been a Michael Jackson fan, and her favorite Recital Theme goes all the way back to 2014's "Tune In And Dance" because she loved all the TV theme songs. In fact, in the future, Noelise hopes to pursue filmmaking!

Show Off Week 

In normal years past, we have used the last week of class before recital to give the kids the opportunity to show each other their dances. This year, we will not be doing a show off week to give everyone just one more regular class before Recital Week. That being said, if the schedule allows, they may still be able to perform for other classes happening at the same time! 

Picture Dates

We will have a few picture days this year.  Each class will have an assigned date and time to come and have their individual picture taken as well as a class picture. The full picture schedule (as well as a list of each classes’ tights and hairstyle requirements!) will be listed on our website under the Recital 2021 very soon! We will put a link in the Wednesday email once it is complete.
