Staffing updates for 2019 - I'm pleased to announce that I have hired Mr. Patrick Jeffrey for Tuesday nights! He will be taking Beginning Acro, Senior jazz tech, Company 1 jazz, Senior jazz choreo, and Performing Line lyrical. Patrick is a former company member at Black Label Movement (with Miss Lauren!), and he is a current principal dancer with Collide. Please help me welcome him in January!
Miss Kaylee will continue taking over Monday nights, and Miss Kayla will continue to teach on Sundays.
Mr. Erik will be taking over Company 2 tap tech/choreography, and Senior Elite tap tech/choreography.
I love working with the Juniors and Petites so much that I'm going to hog them for the rest of the year (and maybe have Erik sub once in a while) :)
