As we begin the last full week of classes in 2020 at Pegasus Dance Studios, my heart is full of gratitude to the wonderful students, families, and incredible teachers and staff. This year, more than at any other time it shows that we are more than just a dance studio. We have stuck together in our belief that dance matters, that the arts matter! The arts have seen us through the most challenging times and we know that we are richer if we can celebrate, express our emotions, and communicate what is in our hearts with music, dance, and art. This is what makes us a community and allows us to be compassionate humans. Thank you for your belief in us, in Pegasus Dance Studios, and the importance of the arts in your families lives. We have an amazing community!
What we know for sure is that our focus is more than the physical development of our students, but on their emotional development as well. We try in every class, whether in person or virtually, to develop empathy, connection, and the feeling of belonging and safety that Pegasus Studios can provide as your child’s “third space”, a space other than home and school that fills their soul.
That's right, it is time to start talking about Showcases again. We are organizing costumes and have made a four part COVID-plan for our Spring Showcases. Read more about that here.
Why, during everything that we are living through right now are we still planning a performance in the spring? Because we believe that our dancers learn so much from the process, even if the performance ends up looking a bit different than normal. Read on for some of the benefits that we feel working on performances can bring to young dancers.
