She was elected last year to serve as the director of Honors Choir this year. She so enjoyed her fellow Honors Choir members. Lexi also was picked to be a student director of Lapeer Performing Arts One Acts. Lexi’s favorite quote: “Don’t let the hate of others bring you down, and just focus on being the best version of yourself that you can be.” She has such a beautiful, funny spirit. When prom was cancelled for this year, she decided to put on her dress and a crown and made herself the prom queen. Lexi plans to attend Mott Community College in the fall, with hopes of working for Disney World in one of their musical productions. She always said she wanted to be a princess when she grew up!

Zoom Classes!

We hope that everyone is enjoying classes! We know that the students are getting anxious and it is getting harder and harder to come inside and participate in class. ALL the teachers are so happy that you are still joining them. All Dance classes will run through the entire month of June. All dance classes will be cleaning your dance routines to get them as recital ready via Zoom! Attendance is very important, please remember we are all working as a TEAM and we all need each other.

Be creative, take your computers outside for dance (ask your parents first). There is nothing better than dancing in the sun

Recital Update

Christy has been working hard to find a place to hold our annual recital in Mid-July. We have a date!

Dress Rehearsal will be July 18 and Recital will be July19. More information will be emailed from Christy. Please check your emails for this important information.

....The Show WILL GO ON....

Hello everyone!

"Zombies, the Musical" Coming to you fall 2020

Auditions will be late Summer, watch Facebook and Instagram for Updates

Musical Rehearsals-Saturday's in the Fall, Time TBD

Introducing Zombie Characters.....

Now, I would like to introduce you to some characters from Zombies!

Hunter is an ordinary kid with extraordinary circumstances.

Hunter’s mother starts out as a basic Donna Reed-style mother, who morphs into a zombie. (Google Donna Reed and you’ll see who she is.)

C.A. Daver is the Zombie School principal, who does everything “over-the-top” and dresses very flamboyantly.

And last, but certainly not least, we have our zombies! There are student hecklers, bullies, cheerleaders, plus many more...

Which character would you like to be?

Thank you to all the parents who sent in pictures of their dancers to help put this awesome video together. Enjoy the finished product

Together Makes us Stronger
