Top 10 Practices for Dance Class
(Modified from Merce Cunningham)
 
1. Consider everything as an experiment. 
2. Be self-disciplined - practice quality and positive mental attitude.
3. There is no win, and no fail. There is only make.
4. Do the work, and you will eventually catch on.
5. Do not try to create and analyze at the same time.
6. Be happy whenever you can manage - enjoy yourself.
7. Ask when confused - strive to know more.
8. Find trust, try trusting for a while.
9. Pull everything out of your fellow dancers.
10. Because nice matters.

Advanced Dance 2017-2018

Great job at the advanced dance auditions!   
 
I appreciate everyone's attendance and hard work.  We had over 200 dancers try out for 40 advanced spots. Yes, you braved that stage, and should be very proud of yourself no matter the outcome.  Most things are out of your control at an audition, so it is important to remain proud of your best effort.  There are still 80 spots available for Open dance.  Please register for the class on Powerschool to reserve your spot.  
 
Sincerely, 
Mrs. Meyer
