News from The Pointe School of Dance

Hello, 2019!

There is something so exciting and energizing about the start of a new year. I know I’m starting a fresh new planner and am excited to do my best to make 2019 the best year yet.

As I’m setting goals and calibrating for the new year, I am also reflecting on 2018 and am filled with gratitude for the incredible year we just wrapped up.  I hope you enjoy reading a few of our highlights!

The Pointe School of Dance 2018 Highlights:

  • Company had the best competitive season yet in 2018!  Our 2018 Company included our first ever Mini Company.
