JAMM ROCK STAR WALL
We have a new Rock Star Wall at JAMM in the front entry way. Teachers nominate dancers that they feel are going above and beyond in class as well as outside of class. They are looking for kindness, dancers who are being helpful to others at the studio, exceptional attitudes and more! Teachers can nominate as many dancers as they want and will do so all month long. Each month we will select 5- 6 dancers who we feel should be chosen and placed on our Rock Star Wall. Rock Star receive a Starbucks gift card and their photo displayed on the wall.
January Rock Stars Announced
Please stop at the front desk to claim your prize and have your photo taken for the wall! There is a short paragraph hanging on the wall for each dancer so you can read why they were chosen by our faculty. CONGRATULATIONS!

For the Love of Dance
Our staff are the best at what they do! They wear many hats and are talented in many areas. Here are a few staff highlights to share from the past month.
Ms. Katelyn was on Twin Cities Live this past month in an interview for her journalism feature for her company "Midwest Home Magazine" where she is a full time editor. Click on the link below to catch her segment. We are so proud for her - She nailed it!
Corey performed with Shapeshift at the Martin Luther King Brunch on Martin Luther King day. The performances were powerful statements of freedom and peace and they were absolutely breath taking. Corey also traveled with Shapeshift to New York City and Danced at the famous Lincoln Center. Such a high honor for any performer.
Hannah traveled to New York City and performed with Shapeshift at Lincoln Center this past January. Her first trip to New York and it was love at first sight. Who travels to New York for the first time and dances on the prestigious Lincoln Center Stage? This talented girl right here!
Angie was able to travel with Masquerade as part of their regional judging panel. She is always honored and excited to share her love of dance and knowledge of the art with students across the country. She also loves and appreciates her students so much when she is away. She always comes home inspired from her judging weekends. But being with the JAMM kids at our home studio is her favorite thing about her career.
Bri lead the students at the Love of Dance Performance opportunity at Farmington High School. It was her first speaking engagement, announcing groups and she did a phenomenal job representing JAMM Dance Co.
