Try Turns & Leaps
This week we are opening up our Turns & Leaps class on Saturday, April 18 at 9:00am - 10:00am to all studio dancers. Join us for some stretching and practicing dance tricks. This class is to enhance and keep working on these skills that are taught in your classes. As well as expanding your dance trick repertoire. We understand some dancers have limited space to move right now. So we have adaptions in class to help them continue to improve in the space they are working in. SEE YOU SATURDAY!
We want to see your pictures! Our April Contest is to find your FIRST recital picture or FIRST day of dance class photo and recreate it. Recreate the pose you were in and try to recreate the costume (if you wore a pink tutu, check your wardrobe for something similar (a pink shirt and skirt for example). Take a picture and share the side by side on Social Media (Facebook or Instagram) and TAG Gasper's School of Dance! We will pick a winner May 1, 2020 (Prize: Gasper Gear). If you started off at a different studio, that is okay. Lets see those FIRST photos and recreations.
