October 2015 Newsletter

Welcome Back!

We are so glad that the 2015-2016 season is underway, and we’re excited to be back in the studio!

This month, we unveiled some new waiting room updates that include a water dispenser, new furniture, and free wifi (the password is our new phone number, which can be found below!). We are also pleased to unveil our online payment option. Just a reminder that tuition is due on the first class of each month.

Here’s to a great year!

See Dance

October brings some exciting opportunities to see great dance! See our own Miss Mandy perform with Dance Kaleidoscope on October 15-18 at Clowes Hall for their concert entitled “Remembrances: A Ballet in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust” (Mature subject matter recommended for older dancers). There are group and student prices available – send us an email if you are interested in joining us. Also, the Indianapolis City Ballet presents “Evening with the Stars” at Clowes Hall October 3 at 7 pm. This show features some of ballet’s biggest stars and most amazing talents. It is an evening you won’t forget! Click here for tickets or more information.

Keep In Touch

We have some fun events coming up this season, and we are looking forward to sharing them with all of you. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for more news and lots of photos.

A note from Anne Johansson, Executive Director

Anne2Thanks for taking the time to read our first newsletter. We hope this will be an easy way to stay in touch and keep you up to date on what’s happening in the studio at The Children’s Ballet and in the world of dance.

This season, as we transition the school into a non-profit, we will be partnering with local organizations and increasing our involvement in community events. We will also be informing you on how we are raising and using funds – every dollar goes right back into the school.

My vision and philosophy for the direction of The Children’s Ballet is to foster an educational and creative environment where every child feels safe to be exactly who they are. Students will be challenged and trained in classical ballet by our excellent instructors, but they will also learn how to move and carry themselves, how to make healthy choices and take care of their body, and what a positive body image looks like. They will learn respect and discipline. And most of all, they will have fun!

Thank you for coming along with us as we begin the 2015-2016 season. Please contact me at any time with questions or concerns.

This Month In Class

In Miss Emily’s classes we are learning how to hold our feet and hands like dancers. We are also having fun playing games that work on our muscle memory and copying skills. Our featured music is Canon in D by Pachelbel and The Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss.


Plié (plee ay) – means bent, bending of the knee or knees.
