Thank You for an Amazing Year + Steppin' Out July News

I can hardly believe our year of dance has come to a close. I wanted
to share how impressed and moved I was by all of our dancers'
performances. From the flawless routines to those little moments that
make working with children so eternally delightful, I and the other
teachers were wowed and touched and delighted by each and every one of
the Steppin' Out dancers. Thank you for sharing them with us--they
have made our year.

Now that July is here, Steppin' Out is officially on summer recess but
there are still a few things to know as you enjoy your vacation:

This year's DVDs are sure to be a delight. You are welcome to pick
them up at the studio on Saturday, July 18 from 10 a.m to 12 p.m. or Tuesday, July 21
from 5 p.m to 7 p.m. Or just wait until our 2015-16 season begins in
September and pick them up during regular business hours.

Although we hope you are enjoying this rest, we also want you to keep
next year's season in mind because we can't wait to have you back in
the studio! Registration will open August 3rd and will be first come,
first served, so keep your eyes on your inbox for your August
newsletter with registration instructions. The class schedule will
also be posted on the web prior to the registration period.

We are thrilled to announce that next year we will be adding a new
jazz/creative movement class for children aged 7-12 with special needs
on Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. The class will be assisted by me but
primarily taught by Olivia Byers-Straus, my student since 1995 and
herself a young woman with Down Syndrome. Olivia just graduated from
the Pathways program at UCLA and currently dances in my young adults
with special needs' company. I am beyond thrilled to offer the
opportunity to study with Olivia to a new generation of dancers.

The studio will be on summer recess for the months of July and August
and the 2015-2016 season will begin in September the week after Labor
Day. Look for your registration invitation email in August!

Have a wonderful summer!
