Dance Mode Studios will celebrate the opening of their brand new studio at 975c Industrial Rd. Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 5:00 p.m. Come check out the new facility, see the ribbon cutting ceremony, or just come to savor some refreshments while watching performances by Dance Mode Studio's production teams.
The new facility allows Dance Mode to continue to offer classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, house, contemporary, modern, popping, locking, break dancing, funk, zumba and more! Classes range from preschool to adult offerings, and everyone is welcome to find out more by coming by, or by looking at the website www.dancemodestudio.com.
A unique feature of the new facility design is space set aside for silent homework management vs. another work space for collaborative group school discussions or refueling between dance classes. The decision to invest facility space for non-dance activities reflects Dance Mode's family friendly culture. Youth taking dance classes need a place to get some regular school work done in-between dance classes, or even to make the best use of drop off and pick up wait times. Dance Mode's new facility was designed with this in mind, and parents are excited about the prospect!
Auditions for Dance Mode's Urban Production Teams follow on the heels of the opening:
Wednesday, August 28: 4:00 - 5:15pm Teen and Senior Hip Hop Auditions (11 & up with experience) 5:15 - 6:30pm Teen and Senior House Auditions (11 & up with experience)
