Dancers of the Month – September 2018

Every month, our staff team takes some time to reflect on the great things happening in the studio and the amazing kids we work with, and we select a few dancers to honor with the title of “Dancer of the Month”.  Our Dancers of the Month stand out in and out of the studio for their great work ethic, consistent kindness, taking initiative, and drive to continue to improve individually and help others.

This year, we’re going to add on to our Dancers of the Month – and we’ll be also featuring one of our graduating seniors and a member of our staff in each Dancers of the Month blog post.  We think our studio is so special because of the people we share it with – our students, their parents, and our team.  Please join us in celebrating and congratulating September’s Dancers of the Month!

Dance & Discover: Zoey M
Zoey was nominated by Miss Vanessa: “This is Zoey’s third year in my class and I am continually impressed by her work ethic and encouraging nature.  Zoey works hard to achieve her goals in dance class, and cheers on her classmates when they reach one of their goals or master a skill they’ve been working on.  Though she is young, Zoey understands that encouraging others to shine bright does not make her own light any dimmer.  Zoey is a friend to everyone in her class, and always gives her best effort.”




Chance to Dance: Landen E
Landen was nominated by Miss Denise: “Landon is an amazing student who shows great focus and dedication!  He stayed committed to all of the activities in our first class, and kept a bright smile the whole time!  Landon is a great student and a great friend.”








Levels 1-3: Elena G
Elena was nominated by Miss Josie and Miss Vanessa: “Elena always comes to class ready to learn.  She is a 100% invested dancer – performing in Company groups, a solo, and Community Team!  Elena works hard in class and makes sure everyone in her class feels included and knows that they have a friend.  She embraces a challenge and works hard to accomplish each new goal – always with a smile.  She is always ready to help a friend get caught up in class, and looks for open studio rooms when she has a break in between rehearsals to practice her solo choreography and technique!”






Levels 4+: Rylie S
Rylie was nominated by Miss Kara and Mr. Aaron: “Rylee is new to our studio, and she instantly made friends with dancers in her classes this summer.  She is always positive, ready to learn, and works hard in every class and rehearsal.  Rylee makes sure everyone in her class feels included, and she’s a great teammate and friend!  Her smile brightens up the room and her drive to improve motivates those around her to continue to try their best.”
