Practice Tip of the Month:
Crossover:
Put a strip of tape on the floor of your practice area. Practice doing your
hop three over the line.  You should lift in back and cross if front making
sure your front foot cross the line created by the tape and you keep your
back foot on the opposite side of the line.  It will be necessary to lift your
back foot high for the hop in order to get it to cross the line when brought
forward.

Congratulations to our senior dancers on their participation in the
filming of a movie promoting peace through dance.  Find out more about

T-shirts that may be worn for appropriate performances. Stay tuned for
