August/September 2017

We had a wonderful four-week intensive the month of June for over 130 dancers. Our three levels of workshop concluded with a two hour performance at St. David’s Church. The two levels of DanceCAMP ended their two-week sessions with a parent demonstration at the studio. The evening classes ended the final week with parent watch night at the studio.

Cleargold, our liturgical touring company, offered a one-week workshop for fourty, 6-12 year olds. They also had a final performance for parents and friends at St. David’s.

We had ten students attend additional summer intensives out-of-state: Claire Fugate attended Oklahoma City Ballet, J’Shawn Gill attended Joffrey Texas Contemporary, Kate Anderson, Sophie Cather, Sydney Frantz, Maria Kennedy and Sierra Wilkerson danced at Ballet Magnificat in Mississippi, Kiana Magee attended Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Avery Cairns went to The Rock in Pennsylvania, and Paige Pratt attended the Gelsey Kirkland Academy in New York.

We are planning a very exciting fall at the Dance Studio. With our enrollment on August 24th and Nutcracker auditions on August 26th, our season is off to a strong start! On Saturday, September 9th we are having Dance Fest at Barbara’s Conservatory from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. This is an extremely popular dance event for our community. Please invite friends who might be interested in dance classes to come try a mini-class (1/2 hour) for FREE! We will also have several fun stations for children of all ages to do dance related crafts and games, as well as the opportunity to try on dance costumes! We’ll have tours of the studio and teachers there to “meet and greet” prospective students. Do you have a dancer in your neighborhood, school, club, or sports team, or know one that wants to be? Then this event is a perfect opportunity to try a mini-class and see what Barbara’s Conservatory of Dance has to offer. Participants should wear dancewear or comfortable exercise clothes. If a dancer enrolls at this event and gives your name as a reference, you will receive a $15 tuition credit.

I am so excited to begin the 44nd season for Barbara’s Conservatory of Dance.

Remember to watch for future newsletters on the dance studio website & Barbara’s Conservatory of Dance facebook page. Welcome to the 2017/2018 season of dance!
