Family Observation Week

This week, December 17 to 20, our dance families are invited to sit in on your child’s class.  Are your parents or in-laws in town for the holidays?  Have them come and watch your dancer’s class.  They’ll enjoy it, and your dancer will enjoy it, too.


Ms. Kat’s Tues & Wed Dance Classes Canceled This Week

The following classes are canceled for this week:

Tuesday 3:45 Level III

Tuesday 6:00 Level II

Wednesday 3:45 Level IV

Wednesday 5:30 Level I

Ms. Kat is out of state to be with her grandfather who is about to undergo heart valve transplant surgery.  Ms. Ann can’t substitute for Ms. Kat because she fell (and another dancer fell on top of her) and is injured.  Ms. Mary is recently deceased.  Ms. Ryia is not available.  And those lovely guest teachers we had over summer who were all majoring in dance…   they all have finals this week.

Fortunately, our school year session of dance classes has a built-in extra week – we usually use it to make up for bad weather days.  For the Wednesday classes that had class canceled last week due to the National Day of Mourning, we will do a make-up class in the spring, probably on a Saturday afternoon.

Life has been rather intense lately.  Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and continued support.



Very Sad News

I have some very sad news.  Ms. Mary Ochoa, our former teacher, was tragically killed in a car crash on Thanksgiving Day.  Her husband was seriously injured.  Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers, and hold your dear ones tight for just a moment.

I hate to break the news in this rather impersonal manner, but I thought it would be better for those of you who knew Ms. Mary to speak to your child in a way that is appropriate for them, rather than for them to hear about it some other way.

You may remember Ms. Mary’s performance to “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” at recital a couple years ago.  She was a talented dancer & actor,  and a loving teacher.

She is dearly loved, and will be remembered fondly.

Ms. Ann offers Short Session Dance Class – Tell Your Friends!

Do you know someone that might want to try our dance classes at the Pflugerville Recreation Center?  We have a 7 week short session that starts tomorrow, Wednesday at 9:45 for ages 3 to 5.


The sessions this fall are Sept 12 to Oct 24, and Oct 31 to Dec 19, each just $69 for seven weeks.  And yes, students can join late – the front desk will simply prorate the price.


There are 4 short sessions over the course of the year, and the class plans are the same as the regular classes, which means that the students in that take all 4 sessions get the same quality dance education they would receive in the school-year session.


This is perfect for those who aren’t sure if their child will like the dance class experience, or don’t want to pay for the whole school year at once.  It also makes a great gift!  With no registration fee, this is a perfect introduction to the world of dance.


Please tell your friends about this great way to try our affordable dance classes.
