It is with great pleasure that we reflect on the past dance year at our studio, That’s Dancing in Lake Worth. We feel blessed to be able to share our love of dance with so many students and their families as we enter into our 15th season. We are extremely proud of all of our students for the hard work they put in all year long pursuing their love of dance. We feel energized by our dance company, Fusion Force, who started the season off by performing a 30 minute entertaining piece aboard the Carnival Destiny last June. It was a “dance experience of a lifetime” as 65 dancers and their families traveled the Caribbean on a 5 day/4 night excursion. Once again the group has ascertained many awards and recognition this past season, ranging from overall high scores to best technique awards in several dance competitions. In addition, for the second year in a row, four of our dance company members will represent the state of Florida in the National Dance Masters of America competition this summer in Anaheim, California where they will compete for individual titles. Several of our students have recently been accepted into prestigious dance programs at the university level, including Marymount Manhattan, New World School of the Arts, UCF, FSU and Boston Conservatory. We have also held several school wide master classes with respectable guest teachers including Keven Quillon, Glenn Packard, Isis Masoud, Rachael Ma, Katherine Kramer and Gerri Barreras.
In addition to our Dance Company and students, we also feel blessed to have assembled an outstanding faculty. They include Jessica Pearl, BFA in dance from New World School of the Arts and Katherine Lameyer who both are Co-Directors of the Young Dancer Program; Larry Albright, BA from Rutgers University; Loren Foster, BFA in dance from Florida State University; Erin Siusley, BFA in dance education from Kent State University; Niki Requito, BA in dance from Palm Beach Atlantic University; Viky Smith, R.A.D. certified; and Julie Thurman who currently attends Palm Beach Atlantic University.
Each one of these valuable faculty members contributes to the overall development of our students. We strongly believe that the development of a dancer is paralleled through the relationship of expert and professional teachers and their association with their students. Fall classes begin on August 20th and we are eager to continue the excitement and spring off the success of this past year to catapult That’s Dancing into the future.
