Please help spread the word so that this new page can become our new facebook main page. (Although there is another ALL STARS Performing Arts Page that you may have already liked, I no longer have access to it, so it will never change or provide new info again...)

Summer 2016 @ ALL STARS

The warm weather teased us! It has many of us wishing for the warmer days to come.
To keep you busy this summer ALL STARS is offering classes for all ages, dance levels and interests.

ALL STARS Dance Camps will be held for dancers 3-18 years old.

3-8 year olds will experience dance class, as well as make a craft, have story time and watch dance clips to inspire them to dance. Each camp will conclude with an in-house performance by the dancers for family & guests.

8-18 year olds will participate in high energy, fun classes that will teach them technique and choreography, in either one or multiple styles. These camps will also have an in-house performance by the dancers for family & guest at the end of the week.

Summer Intensives are for serious dancers, at the intermediate to advanced level. These intensives will provide concentrated amount of training to really dedicate themselves to a technique and performance.

Take a look at the classes below, register now and get a discount on tuition, then get a friend to join you in what will be the best Summer ALL STARS has seen yet. !

Shout Outs & Congratulations

Congratulations to Katie Koweleski! She was promoted to pointe! This is something that she has been working very hard for...she has inspired many younger dancers with her hard work and determination. We are so excited to see her performing in the recital!
She has done it again! Brianna Ebunola has been offered a dance scholarship to AMDA

We have always admired her talent, strength and passion as a dancer...and now so many others are seeing it too!

National Honors Society Dance Arts

The students involved in ALL STARS Chapter of NHSDA - are super excited about their upcoming event. An idea that was developed and evolved within the group, put together by the students themselves...
Saturday, February 21st will be an exciting day for many children in the foster care system here in our County. The ALL STARS dancers have partnered with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and have invited many of these children to come to the studio for free dance classes! What a great way to share their talents and bring the love of dance to others!

"Inspiration" Spring Recital Sponsorship Ads

Each year, for Recital, we put together a wonderful Program/Booklet to highlight each dancer and each class. (This is where we use the images taken at the photo sessions! Be there to make sure you are in the book!)
Our Recital Programs are a keepsake, that will be looked at again and again.

We are asking each dancer to sell 2 Sponsorship Ads. This is a great opportunity to highlight a local business, store, home-based business and independent sales.

Each person attending receives a program and turns out to be a great advertising tool.

Or, you can use it to send a special message to your dancer.

Please see previous Program Recitals at the studio for examples of how these Ads can be used. Forms will be available at the front desk and passed out in classes.

FAQ of the month - Competitions vs. Community Performances

Why don’t you participate in dance competitions?

Q: Why doesn't ALL STARS participate in dance competitions?

A: We believe that dance is a gift to enjoy and share. We would rather that our students learn the joy of performing and entertaining an audience through community events, festivals, and other positive venues. In addition, at ALL STARS we feel that our students support and encourage each other as they all try to become stronger dancers.

Q: Who gets to perform at these shows and how often?

A: Unlike other studios that only take their company members and advanced students to shows, ALL STARS takes all class levels and ages, from the 3 year olds, to the high level seniors. We believe every student in the class should participate and learn stage presence, confidence, and the joy of experiencing an audience delighting in their performance.

TUITION IS DUE... Late Fees charged after February 7th

Remind 101

The studio will use the Remind 101 service as a way of keeping parents up-to-date on performance reminders, changes to schedules and immediate important information. We will not use this service to replace emails or newsletters.

This is a free service that allows messages to be sent by the studio to your phone via text or to an email account.

Information on how to set this up on your phone or email will be at the front desk.

Family Businesses

Did you know we are now advertising YOUR businesses?

Check out the FAMILY BUSINESS section of our website! Many of our parents and families work their own businesses - sales, consultants, health & wellness.

Take a look at what our ALL STARS families have to offer!


as we make many attempts to advise you of upcoming events and performances, please remember it is the student and parent's responsibility to be aware of all ALL STARS activities, dates and events, such as performances, extra classes, and dates the studio is open or closed. ASPA will communicate all such notices via email, on the bulletin board inside the studio, the website and often through Facebook and monthly newsletters. Parents should check these mediums frequently to ensure they are informed.
Please remember to inform us of any email, phone number or address changes.
