Nikolaus Wourms, a professional dancer with the Minnesota Ballet, will be presenting a 1 day workshop on Friday, July 31 and Friday, August 14 at our studio for dancers ages 13 & up from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm to explore some of the creative elements of choreography. Nik has choreographed several original works. He received a Choreographic Initiative Grant in 2013 from the NY Choreographic Institute. This workshop will include learning a short original  piece by Nik and lecture on challenges and objectives of the creative process. Students will also create a short original work with each other and engage in dialogue concerning what they have learned. Dancers should bring a small lunch along with them to the workshop. Please email ( to request a registration form. Completed registration forms and payments are due by Friday, July 10. Cost is $30.00 per day.

These four day workshops are for advanced dancers (Level III, Jr Company & Sr Company) that would like an in depth study of dance and who would like to develop in an accelerated environment. These classes will focus on ballet, jazz, modern, and student choreography. The 2 options are Monday, July 13 - Thursday, July 16 or Monday, August 3 - Thursday, August 6. Classes will meet from 5:00 - 9:00 pm each evening during both weeks. Cost is $50.00 per week. You may register for the workshop during our summer registration night on Tuesday, May 19 or send us an email ( to request a registration form.

           RECITAL DVDS 
Dance recital DVDs are now available for pick up at The New England Store. If you have any questions or comments regarding the DVDs, please contact Ed Monroe (  

Dance shoes are mandatory when attending dance class. If dancers don't have dance shoes, they may be purchased through the dance studio. Please remember to put your dancers name in their dance shoes!! If you ordered dance shoes on one of our registration nights, the shoe will be available for pick up at your first dance class. If you still need to order shoes, please bring your dancer to class early so they can get fitted. All shoes need to be paid for when orders are placed.


When dancers for the Pre-Ballet/Tiny Tap and Level 1 classes come to class please make sure that both sets of their shoes have their names in them and please make sure their shoes are in a bag when they come to class each week. This will help lessen the confusion of whose shoes are whose since most dancers have the same shoes.

Parents are welcome to wait in the waiting room at the dance studio while their dancer is at class but we ask you to make sure siblings aren't running in and out of the dance room while classes are scheduled. This is a distraction to the dancers and the instructors. Also, if you bring a snack up to the studio please be sure to clean up after yourself and your kids so there isn't food or trash left behind. Thanks in advance for your help!

Throughout the dance season, please be sure to read the monthly newsletters. They always have lots of important information. All newsletters will be emailed to everyone who put an email address on their registration form. Please email us ( if you didn't receive a copy of this month's newsletter by email. Extra newsletters are always available in our waiting area at the dance studio. All of the information is posted here on our website too. You can also find us on facebook.

Please feel free to call (715) 292-3567 or email ( if at anytime throughout the dance year you have any questions, comments or concerns.
