Dear students, dance parents and friends,
Our own 9 and 8 year old, Lazar and Alena became National ViceChampions in Standard Gold PreTeen2 Division at the USA Dance National Championships in Baltimore, MD this weekend.
Being far away from home, competing against older couples in a highest syllabus division, they didn't win easily. The parents' teams stepped in, throwing their talents in costume designing, scheduling and loud screaming. In preparation for Nationals, together with the regular training, dancers worked hard in fitness class and performed for the dance community around Portland.
Thank you all who supported the kids by coming to their fundraiser, encouraging feedback or simple Likes on Facebook :)
Speaking of Lazar&Alena's success, they started around 4 years old in the Beginning Kids Class.
This Saturday, we hold an Open Lesson with a surprise performance for parents and friends of our Beginning Kids Class at 11 AM. Everybody welcome!
New Session for Beginning Kids Class starts on April 12th. (See #2 below)
