7. Calendar

PLEASE NOTE- in the calendar a lot of it is for our performance levels, so I have broken the calendar in to 2....  first is for ALL dancers... second is just pertaining to Performance Levels. I hope maybe it is easier to read...

1. Battlezone Gratitude
We have some stuff coming up this month, so making sure you are all on track and kept in the loop;). BUT FIRST, a huge thank you to everyone that was a part of our Battlezone event this weekend!!!  For those of you that was your first time watching and figuring out what it was all about, to those that continue to support and show up... THANK YOU!  I am beyond proud of you dancers that jumped WAY outside your comfort zone and battled.. it was so incredibly empowering to see you breaking down walls... stepping up... and just dancing!!  I love that every battlezone guaranteed, we have dancers that just blossom, many surprising themselves as well as us... and it's just such a beautiful thing to witness.  Huge thank you to my one and only momma bear... she is at every event..... Friday until the end, helping with clean up... Saturday for most of it until it got quiet...  I am so lucky to have a mom that is willing to be there, PLUS, it's adorable to see how excited she gets for the dancers too.. cheering them on xxoo.  Thank you to those that ran the concession!!  Leah, Rachel, Sherri, Emily, Mandi and Tasha!!!  

Shout out to you dancers for going for it (and apologies, I might miss a name or two, but gonna try!!):
Sumalee Martinflatt, Leena Sharma, Leeya Sharma, Reid Benedict, Noah Marston, Jacksun Fryer, Sarah O'Brien, Rachel Oman, Paige Richardsen, Chiara Maltby, Deeya Sharma, Grace Johnson, Niko Acton, Linnea Nold, Eden Pothier, Frankie Pothier, Cohen Schick, Lucas Dunbar, Brynn Johnston... and possibly more?
AND HUGE congrats to these 2 dancers for winning their categories!!!
Emma Hildebrandt for U18 Open Styles - saw stuff in there that was just mind blowing Emma... just the beginning there girl... keep pushing!
Armando Servano for U18 Hip Hop- you were on fire..... and just went for it!  So proud of you... just the beginning too!!  LETS GOOOO!!!

And of course, gratitude to AJ.  Over the past 9 years he has brought out incredible dancers from around North America (many whom I have never met) and what a treat it is for our dancers to be exposed to true professionals, doing what they love.. and truly inspiring us all.  We are so lucky to have such an incredible roster of dancers that come every year.  

2. AJ away and Jacksun
just a heads up, AJ and Jacksun are away for the next 2 weeks in LA, filming, so AJ's sub is Popping Todd (someone you should check out on google, as he has done many amazing things in dance and film as well). And Jacksun's sub is the amazing and our very own Linnea :). One of our dancers Deeya is always away too....... :)

3. OPEN Family Day
Just a reminder, we are OPEN this coming Monday February 17th.  I know it is Family Day, however I cannot take every holiday that falls on a monday, there are just too many.  Plus, we are like family at the studio so..... ;)

4. Retirement Homes Part 1
