General Information
For our visitors...
Beckie's Studio of Dance provides classes during the school year and then a five-week summer session. Generally, we do 3 big shows a year:
  • Holiday Show is in early December to celebrate the coming winter season.
  • Annual Spring Recital is a dance review to demonstrate our progression of skills and to experience a night of entertainment in a professional atmosphere. This will be scheduled for the end of May or early June.
  • Union County Fair and Parade is held during the last week of July or first week of August.
Return here periodically for other performances that might arise. You can always check our calendars for dates and times for practices, rehearsals, and performances.

New classes are formed at the end of August. For this past year, our Studio offered the following classes:
All classes are grouped and taught according to skill level with an average age span of 1-3 years. Teenagers may join a level IV or V depending on experience. Entry auditions/selections are required for levels IV, V, and Advanced. All classes are 50 minutes except for Tumble Ballet classes (45 minutes), and private lessons (23-30 minutes).

Have you ordered your studio leotard and tights for 2015? They will serve as a costume basic for spring recital and the other shows that will follow. This has proven to be very economical in costuming while providing modesty. Please see previous announcement.
