Dance Daze™ Classes Now at Bladium!

Good Morning!

Yes, the buzz is TRUE! Dance Daze™ classes have moved to Bladium Sports and Fitness Club in Alameda!  We will now be offering classes in the gorgeous studio spaces pictured below.

Our first classes there will be this Saturday, July 30th. We have Creative Movement/Pre-Ballet from 9:00 am to 9:45 am and Ballet 3/Level 1 ABT Curriculum from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.

Bladium is a great family gym, and we believe this move will be beneficial for both Dance Daze™ and them! Also, we are sure our students will love the new studio space, which includes mirrors attached to walls, gorgeous floors, and even a small stage for performances right in the room!

FREE Dance Classes for One Student!

We’ve partnered with a great online deal company called GoodTwo in order to market our cause to offer dance classes for FREE to one student from September through December! From our GoodTwo page, people can read about our cause and get a discount when they purchase from one of the merchants listed on our page. You can see right on our page how much money will be going to the merchant and how much money will be donated to Dance Daze™. It’s a win-win situation for everyone, and you’ll be helping one student study dance for an entire session! To visit our GoodTwo page, go here: http://goodtwo.com/funds/fund.aspx?id=5683

We look forward to having you support our efforts to provide positive arts experiences to as many students as possible!

We’ve been having a blast in our Preschool Tap Class on Saturdays from 11:45 am to 12:15 pm!

In this class, we explore sounds and rhythms, play games to help us with our counting, and move and groove to everything from big band jazz music to children’s sing-a-long favorites!

Let It Snow!

Greetings Everyone!

It’s been a while since our last post! For the past several weeks our Director, Saumirah McWoodson, was busy preparing for her lead role in the International Ballet Theater Institute’s production of The Snow Maiden. Ballet master Alexei Badrak, Co-Founder and Director of IBTI is one of Saumirah’s former ballet coaches! Saumirah also performed as the Snow Maiden back in December of 2007. See the photos below from both the 2007 and the 2010 performances!

October Updates

dance group en 2

Hey Everyone!

I hope this month has been treating you well!  We’ve made a few updates to the Dance Daze sites recently, and I want to share them with you!

  1. We added more information about the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum we implement in our ballet classes on our About Page.
  2. We created a brand new YouTube account, and we will use it to showcase our work and performances!  (Yes, that means, with your permission and consent, YOU may be featured in a video on the Dance Daze YouTube Channel!
  3. We added some convenient social networking buttons at the top right column, so you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube more easily!
  4. We categorized our links at the bottom right of the page and added more links for local dance supply stores so you know where to shop for appropriate dance attire and shoes!
  5. We made HUGE changes to our Class Descriptions Page in order to give you a better idea of what type of vibe, energy, and overall classroom environment to expect in each class!
  6. We added a Notes Tab to our Facebook Page, so you can now view all of our most recent blogs there, if you’re more of a Facebook person than a regular website person!

In other news, we’re happy that we’ve been getting a lot of inquiry about our classes! Our street sign on Foothill Blvd. is getting noticed!  Also, we are VERY excited that we’ve started teaching an after-school Hip Hop Dance program at an elementary school in Hayward! We love being able to bring our dance program into the community and deepen our connection with our students and their families!

We look forward to seeing you in class soon!
