May 2022 Monthly Minute
Dear Pegasus Families,
What an amazing week last week was for all those dancers and classes who participated in our Showcase Photos and showed me their dances. I am so excited to see the finished choreography at our upcoming Junior and Senior Showcases. We always try to keep an element of surprise, but this year, parents, I can imagine how exciting it will be to finally see your dancers on stage!! Please make sure all the details are on your calendar and your tickets have been ordered!

What Progress in Dance Looks Like
Dance class is a lot like school in many ways: your child explores new ideas, practices skills, solves problems, and develops friendships. Unlike school though, dance classes don’t have a new grade level every year. This can seem strange at first, but for dance education it’s very normal and expected!
At Pegasus Studios our dance students experience “growth” years (when they move up a level) and “grind” years (when they remain in the same level). Because every dancer develops at their own pace, this advancement will look a little different for everyone over time. For example, a student might experience growth to the next level only after grinding it out at their current level for two years.
