The Regional Competition in Stamford is set for Nov. 9-11 (Thursday-Saturday).
Students with an interest in watching the competition can stop by the front desk for more information. It is always a great treat for our competitors to have their dance colleagues in the audience supporting them.
On Wednesday Nov. 15, Anastasia Abrashin will be here for a day of coaching. Students can schedule coaching sessions with their instructors. She will be teaching a Rhythm and Timing Master class at 7:30 p.m. That class will cost $20 per person. Anastasia is a three-time United States Nine Dance champion who retired from professional competition in 2005. You will enjoy learning from her.
We’ll be having a special Rat Pack-themed party in honor of our John Brighenty, a student who recently passed away unexpectedly. We want to honor him with a night of dancing to his favorite music. We will be collecting new or gently-used sweaters for the Sweaters for Veterans project, a charity with special meaning to John, who was a veteran himself.
We’re also going to take a little holiday break for Thanksgiving. The studio will be closed Nov. 23-24, and we wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving.
Looking just a little further out: We have our Showcase Ball on Friday, Dec. 1, from 7-9 p.m. This is a ticketed event, and more information is coming soon.
