Happy New Year 2019!

Happy New Year! We have already been busy this year and it’s just starting! Several of our RAC Company dancers attended the Tremaine Dance Convention in Washington, DC, at the beginning of January. At the convention, the dancers took master level classes from top dancers and teachers, competed in both solo and group dances, and had lots of fun! Two of our solo dancers brought home trophies – a junior 2nd place for tap and a teen 1st place for musical theatre. The groups earned trophies as well – ballet earned 2nd place, musical theatre earned 2nd place, tap earned 2nd place, and the lyrical group earned 4th place. Way to go girls!! We are so proud of your hard work. Ms. Mary and Ms. Alisha, also took classes and learned new techniques for teaching ballet mechanics, lyrical techniques, injury prevention, and of course, supported our dancers.

Looking forward to the Spring, RAC Company dancers also will be performing in the community and preparing for our recital in June. Stay tuned for details!!

Everyone loves a parade!

The Rhythm and Arts Center students are busy getting ready for the holiday show in December (more details coming soon!) Don’t worry though! You can see some of our Company dancers…er elves perform in the Reston Holiday Parade at Reston Town Center. The parade is November 23, 2018, at 11am. There’s the parade, ice skating, pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, train rides, and in the evening carriage rides and the tree lighting. It’s sure to get you in the holiday spirit!
