Watch our new Virtual Student Showcase from home!

 

 

Dance Station is usually filled with spectators whenever we throw one of our student showcases. But like so many other things in 2020, we’ve had to do much of our work virtually. Now, we are proud to announce that our latest student showcase is available to view online. All 12 showcase videos are free to stream.

We call it “Dancing Through the Decades 1920-2020.” Please join me in congratulating our participating students: Dave Cremers, Ted Kreifals, Nancy Leverenz, Katherine Nydes, Barbara Pattelena, Peter Pesic, Kathy Roybal, Marie Stoffer, and Meg Wilburn.

I’d also like to offer a special thanks to our teachers who joined me in choreographing and performing these routines: Mike Garcia, Elli Hindmarch, and Mary Miller.

We are excited to share our dancing in this new format. Along the way, we’ve learned a lot and have really enjoyed the benefits of producing this video showcase. We’re happy that we can now share it with you.

So welcome to “Dancing Through the Decades 1920-2020!” You provide the dinner and we provide the show! Click here to watch the showcase videos.

Meanwhile, enjoy a few photos from the showcase performances!


An Important Message for our Students

To all of our Dance Station friends and family:
In light of current events we are making some changes to our schedule for the remainder of March. All group partner dance classes will be cancelled along with the Competitor Practice, Tango Practica, and Blues Dance. Our Jazzercise classes and Michael Walker’s Dance Technique class will remain on the schedule as there is no contact with other students in these classes. All of our teachers are available for private lessons, please contact them directly to make or change appointments. (Contact list at bottom of this message)

We are asking that students and teachers wash their hands thoroughly before and after lessons. If you feel ill please stay at home. Please use your best judgement about attending lessons if you have traveled, especially if you have been in areas where the virus cases are spiking.

We are increasing cleaning in the studio, especially door handles and other frequently handled surfaces. Our Jazzercise classes will be following an all standing format to eliminate the use of mats and weights. We are also making some schedule adjustments to keep a lighter flow of traffic in the studio.

This is a stressful time for many people with constantly evolving circumstances. We hope by taking precautions and keeping our private lessons and Jazzercise classes available we can safely bring the positive effects of dance to all our lives. You will also be supporting our teachers as they and their families face this uncertainty. Most of all we thank you all for your continued support and commitment.

Competitor Practice – March 8

We are once again hosting a competitor practice on Friday, March 8 at 7 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for students who study competitive style dancing to hone their skills and build their stamina. We will be dancing rounds in both International and American Style ballroom and in the American Rhythm dances. Be sure to sign up to participate. If you are curious about how competitions are danced or just want to support your dancing friends feel free to stop by and watch for awhile, an audience is an important part of preparation.Lawrence Black and Adrianna Duncan
