Did you know that we are starting a new preschool alternative program at Durango Dance? We are, and today was our first day of preview camp!
I think this may be my new favorite thing. It's such a different avenue for us as a studio, and our little artists seem to agree that we're on the right track. On the way to the parking lot, one little artist described today as her "favorite day ever," and mom was sweet to run back into the studio to share her excitement with me. All of our little artists participated in music and yoga plus free play in our decked out Studio 2. As a teacher, it was inspiring for me to watch the other teachers: Bailey who taught music using the motion of scarves and timing of steps to the beat of a drum and Hana who taught yoga using interactive jungle music and literal rain drops.
We're looking forward to tomorrow's activities of art and, of course, DANCE!
Free play activities: kitchen set, coloring, dress up, and free space to dance (who can keep from dancing when wearing a pretty dance costume?!)
Happy Summer! Our last camp is next week (Creative Arts Camp), and as we finish up with our summer session, I'm excited to share a few updates with you!
We have an updated schedule featuring a few new names. I'll be updating our website with their pictures and bios, but in the meantime, I'd like to reintroduce Ms. Therese and Ms. Lani--who have both taught for us in the past and are excited to return to the studio-- and introduce Ms. Haeli--who has been teaching in Colorado Springs for the past 6 years. All 3 teachers have an amazing gift of teaching and a great love for dance. They'll be great additions to our already strong team of Ms. Jessica, Ms. Michaela, Ms. Tracy, Ms. Libby, and myself.
To view and print the new schedule or to register, go to our website:www.durangodance.com
Lastly, we hope to see you at our Open House, Monday, August 29th 4:30-7pm. Many of our teachers will be attending, and you'll be able to shop at our NEW boutique (Ms. Kristen's idea!)
Feel free to email, call, or stop by the office (M-Th 9am-3pm).
Wishing you all the best!
