June/July/August

We know the summer is an important time for the family to rest, recharge and maybe attend a reunion or take that special family vacation.

Summer at Miss Annie's is also a time to take in new ideas and experiences. Some students may attend ballet intensives, while others may join us for a dance workshop at the studio or travel to Orlando, Florida for the Tremaine National Dance Convention.

Miss Annie is always looking for new learning opportunities to bring back to the studio in the fall, and she is often traveling to attend clinics/certifications to keep pace with current trends in dance education. Below are a few specific things we have on the calendar:
