Summer 2020 Schedule!

Dear CYB Families,

As we closed our school year last week with our In-Studio Mini-Performances, I wanted to reach out and say a huge THANK YOU to all of my ballet families for supporting, loving, enduring, maintaining, and persevering during this pandemic that none of us could have imagined would turn our worlds inside out.  If I've learned anything through this quarantine, it is that family is still the most important entity and we must hold on dearly to them, because really they are all that we have!  As my ballet family, I am eternally indebted to you for honestly keeping us afloat and continuing to keep our studio open.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

As we move into the next chapter, I believe we will be more resilient, more loving, more kind, more understanding of each other and our unique situations that we find ourselves.  Slowing our lives down is of the utmost importance, I believe, and classes for the summer will reflect that as you will see when you open up the attached schedule.  Scheduling will be done on a "first come-first serve" basis as class sizes must be diminished and we are not able to combine classes for the summer due to social distancing mandates.  

Summer Ballet Camps (Ages 3 to 6) & Summer Workshops (Ages 7 through College) will be held for 3 weeks in June (June 8-25th) and July (July 6-23rd).  We will have Online Registration ready for Summer Enrollment by Monday, June 1st.  

Fall 2020 Classes will begin on Monday, August 17th.  We will have Online Registration ready for Fall 2020 Enrollment by Monday, June 8th. 

Youth Dance Theatre (YDT) will complete their school year with an End-of-Year BBQ that will be held on the back lawn of our studio on Saturday, June 27th, at 4:00 pm.  Invitations to that will be forthcoming so we can celebrate our accomplishments for this school year!  For those wanting more information on YDT, you will receive more instructions soon; however, as of today we will not be having online, recorded, or in-studio auditions.  As life continues to change, we ebb and flow with the changes as well.  Look forward to some changes as we are excited about the future for our studio!

Thank you for a beautiful school year and for those who will be continuing on with us or those of you who will be moving on to other exciting avenues, WE LOVE YOU!

My Heart to Yours (Always),



Ms. Michelle

Video Class Schedule and Tips!

Dear CYB Families,

This week's classes (April 6-10th) will come to you in a pre-recorded Video Format.  We will resume our LIVE ZOOM CLASS schedule the week of April 13-17th.  I am working on creating Choreography Videos for each of the classes, as well as some exciting new ways of creating our choreography for The Little Mermaid for our older dancers in Ballet 3, 4, and Upper Division!  If you are a TA for me (Teacher's Assistant), there will be a LIVE TA ZOOM MEETING on Wednesday at 7:00 pm.  If you are in YDT, there will be a LIVE YDT ZOOM MEETING (no dancing yet) on Friday from 3:30-5:00 pm.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of you! 

If your dancer is in our classes of ages 3 to 7-year-olds, you will be receiving this week's coloring page in the mail, along with their Lily the Bunny or Peter Cottontail mirror markers.  With this weekend being Easter, please expect an Easter surprise to come from Miss Brooklyn or myself.  We will be coming by your homes delivering a small Easter surprise for your little ones on Thursday and Friday!  We miss you terribly and are looking forward to when we get to see you in the studio again!

Have a beautiful week full of hugs and happiness!

3-5 year old class video posted!

Our first 3-5 year old video has been emailed out for your kids to enjoy class this week!  I'm working on other videos every day as my strength gets better (bronchitis is no fun).  When I went to the studio yesterday to record, I was stopped in my tracks by all the love from my dancers.  Amazing!  I love and miss you all!

Studio Update

Dear CYB Families,

Thank you for your love and patience as we continue to work through the ever-changing events of the past few weeks in reference to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)!

In accordance with Governor Gary Herbert and the Box Elder School District, beginning Monday, March 16th through Friday April 3rd, the studio will be closed (for both classes and rehearsals) to slow the spread of COVID-19.  According to www.coronavirus.utah.org, "State officials are encouraging everyone to take serious precautions, especially at least six-feet away from other people and staying home if showing any symptoms."

So how will this affect us going forward?

1.  I will be creating/recording online classes and sharing them with your class for the next 2 weeks (March 16-March 26).  Please be patient as there will be a learning curve for all of us involved (and I am in no way a "techie")!  My plan is to be up and running with your class video of the week by Wednesday, March 18th at the latest, in conjunction with the Box Elder School District.  I will be attaching Class Coloring Pages and some fun activities for the younger dancers (ages 3 to 7); as well as conditioning/flexibility/feet exercises and also fun activities for our older dancers (Ballet 1 to Upper Division).
2.  I will be recording a video of your dancer's Performance Dance to share so they can continue to practice at home, or the park, or your backyard, the mountain, etc. Please encourage your dancer to have fun with our new way of learning for the next couple of weeks - and SILLY SOCKS are encouraged to help celebrate St. Patrick's Day on Tuesday, March 17th. 💃🍀
3.  Spring Break will still begin on Friday, March 27th and go through Friday, April 3rd.  ENJOY YOUR TIME OFF WITH YOUR FAMILIES!
4.  If your dancer would prefer to make up the classes they will be missing over the next 2 weeks (rather than participating in our online videos), you may opt to do this as well.  Please let Miss Brooklyn know you will be doing this instead of the online videos by replying to this email.

I want to take the time to let you know how precious each and every one of your dancers is to me.  Each one of them has their own special way of being, and it is perfect for them.  I see their greatness, their light, their spirit, their radiance, their perseverance, their creativity, their magnificence.  I am in awe every day that I get to work with them.  I send love and prayers to each of you and your loved ones during this time and hope you know how much you mean to me and my own family.  We will persevere and come out on top of this - with gratitude for the many amazing lessons we have learned on so many different levels as a community, a studio, a family, a nation, and throughout the world.  

My Heart to Yours,



Ms. Michelle
