Please Welcome to the Stage... "Oye Como Va"

3rd grade dancers gathered a few minutes before the big show to rehearse as they prepared for their first performance of the semester at the March Flag Ceremony on March 18th. The audience was impressed with the jazz choreography students performed to Santana's "Oye Como Va". They cannot wait to hit the stage again on May 20th during the school dance recital. They are sure to be a hit, again! :)

5th and 6th grade students push themselves to the limit!

As the year progresses, students are working hard to push their flexibility to the limit. Incorporating exercises at the barre allows students to continue to not only gain flexibility, but also strengthen their core muscles.

Students also are learning about the importance of incorporating cardio into their daily warm up. Below, they demonstrate our cardio warm up, utilized to increase stamina and ease of movement.

Art of Dance combined with ASU'S Urban Plunge proved to be an unstoppable dance force. The students learned a hip hop routine taught by guest teacher, Bree Cerfus. We cannot wait to host a fun filled weekend of dance with Urban Plunge March 12th through the 13th.
