We are welcoming a bunch of new students to the family and we couldn’t be more excited!  A couple of tidbits for the newest members:

  • Before you arrive, you will want to check the parent portal for the studio that your class will be in.  If you have any troubles, find an instructor & they will be happy to help you!
  • Make sure your dancer is following dress code.  Basic rules: hair pulled back, proper shoes, belly & bottoms covered.  Be sure to check your class description for more details. 
  • Follow us on Instagram & Facebook.  We post a lot about what’s happening at our studio & it’s an easy way to keep up.  You will also get monthly emails like this! 
  • HAVE SO MUCH FUN!!  We like to have A LOT of fun here at Studio M!


We come back to classes – NEXT WEEK – January 10th!!  We have missed you so much & can’t wait to see those adorable faces in this new year!  This semester will run through May with our recital week scheduled for June 6th-10th.   *Our recital dates were adjusted right before the season began so please be sure that you have the correct dates marked in your calendar. 

On the recital note, please remember to log into the Parent Portal and update your dancers t-shirt size.  


It’s a very rare occasion to be sure but both Tavja & I will be gone next week.  It just so happens that our other careers – I’m a corporate stage manager & producer, she is a retail buyer – are colliding on this one week.  That being said, we have an extremely responsible & capable staff that will be able to help you with anything you may need.  Our staff knows how to reach us if needed & we will both be back by the following week.  If you need something specific to one of us, please email as we will both be checking our inbox.


Please park on the West side of the building (the side with our logo on the wall) when dropping off & picking up your dancer.  This helps with consistency for the kids and staff especially during the dark hours of the winter.  We will ALWAYS make sure the kids get safely to your vehicle so this will help us out.  Plus, we would prefer that the East entrance is used for staff only. 


Our monthly Spirit Week is right around the corner!  Twinning Spirit Week is scheduled for January 17th-21st.  Although this week is usually our ‘Bring a Friend Week’, Covid has changed that yet AGAIN.  Instead…we will be twinning with our classmates!!  Plan your attire with your classmates – the color is your theme.  Here is the color code to follow…

  • Monday – Wear YELLOW.
  • Tuesday – Wear PURPLE!!!
  • Wednesday – Wear RED.
  • Thursday – Wear BLUE.
  • Friday – Wear GREEN. 


We are SO EXCITED to have another Adult Workshop on the schedule!  Come get Jazzy in January with Miss Kelsey!!  This workshop will run for 4 weeks – January 18th & 25th, February 1st & 8th – on Tuesdays from 7:30-8:30pm.  We have already met our minimum number of students but we have space for a couple more.  Sign up and SHOW US YOUR JAZZ HANDS!!


Our Competition Company has been working hard – even over the break – to be ready for our first competition at the end of January.  If you see any of these HARD WORKING & dedicated kiddos, be sure to wish them luck.  It’s a first ever competition for many of them!!


We would love to add some testimonials to the already fantastic ones on our website.  If you are loving all things Studio M & appreciate being in the Studio M family, please let us know!  The first 5 testimonials submitted will receive a $15 credit on their account and a Studio M water bottle. Please email testimonials to [email protected].


  • Costumes are arriving although we are still waiting for quite a few.  As soon as full classes of costumes have arrived, we will have a day to try them on and make sure everything fits.  This usually happens the second or third week of February.  Stay tuned…
  • The Performance Company will be having a telegram FUNdraiser for Valentines day called Love-O-Grams.  If you want to send a sweet message of love to someone in your life, hire our Performance Company to knock on their door & sing to them.  There is even a digital option for loved ones far away.  More information soon.


  • Masks required for Littles level and above. Please bring your own as we have a limited supply for emergency purposes.
  • Only Tots & Littles parents allowed in the building. 
  • One parent/dancer.  Minimal siblings. 
  • We do not have a water fountain so make sure your dancer has their own water bottle. 
  • If you are sick at all, please stay home and use our Zoom option. 



We can’t wait to get back to dancing with you!!
