Master Classes Galore!
We just wrapped up an incredible class with Caitlin Meighan from An American in Paris on Monday and next weekend we have two more! Melissa Jackson will be coming to work with the Hawkins Contemporary Jazz Company (sorry, there is only room for company members for that one), but our tap classes with Melinda Sullivan are open to all! We have so many great classes and intensives, including a just announced Flexibility workshop with Leah Bueno as seen in Dance Magazine. Be sure to look at our summer session tab to see all of our offerings this summer!

Congratulations to the Choreographer's Initiative Winners!
The audience and judges alike were awed by the talent displayed by our youth choreographers - and their dancers. It was tight competition, but the winners were chosen (including a tie!). Congratulations to you all!
1st Place - Ashton Titus, The Out-Crowd
2nd Place - Faith Moreno, When Hearts Are Large
3rd Place (Tie) - Shelby Baird, and Mira Begg, Lay Me Down
