This One-of-a-Kind Holiday Season, Give the Gift of Dance

November 26, 2020

I hope your holiday season is off to a good start – regardless of how different it may be this year.  On Thanksgiving this year, I was reflecting on how grateful I am that dance has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  It has served different purposes at different times – sometimes as an opportunity to perform, sometimes as an opportunity to restore, sometimes as an opportunity to share and teach, sometimes as an opportunity to challenge myself and take risks.  And with Petite Feet, I am grateful to be able to share the potential of similar opportunities with young dancers near and far.  This year, I hope you might consider giving a Petite Feet video or – something unique this year – virtual classes to someone in your life who you feel might benefit from having dance in their life as well!  

Explore options for giving the videos in digital or hard copy format.  And sign your little dancer up for virtual classes here.

Please take our survey about summer!

Classes will continue this summer on Zoom and hopefully back in person before long.  I’d love to hear what’s working best for you in terms of Zoom classes and schedule – and also your thoughts about when you will feel comfortable coming back to the studio.  The survey only takes two minutes!  You can access it here.  Thank you in advance for taking the time to take the survey!

Spring Session Begins April 7 – With Two Ways to Participate

March 23, 2020

Starting April 7, there are two ways to participate in Petite Feet dance classes while we continue with social distancing.

1. If you live in the LA vicinity, you can sign up for the spring session for any time slot that is not sold out. Classes will be held through Zoom until restrictions are lifted, at which point we will return to the studio in Eagle Rock for classes at the scheduled day/time. While classes are through Zoom, you will get links to all Tuesday and Saturday classes each week and can attend as many as you’d like. You will also receive access to recordings of the week’s classes to do on your own schedule. The session fee is $220.

2. If you do not live in the LA vicinity, you can sign up weekly for Zoom classes for $25/week. You will receive Zoom links for all the Tuesday and Saturday classes and can attend as many as you’d like during that week.  You will also receive access to recordings of the week’s classes to do on your own schedule.  This weekly sign up will last for as long as classes remain remote.

You can find the class schedule and registration buttons here.
