March Student of The Month

Congratulations to our Dancer of the Month, Caleb Rumsey!

Caleb is 10 years old and in the 5th grade at Narrows View Intermediate School.  He loves taking dance because he enjoys learning all the different dance styles, and meeting other kids who like the same type of things as he does.  His favorite dance class is Hip Hop because he loves the music and learning choreography to go along with his favorite songs.  When he isn't dancing, Caleb enjoys playing basketball, reading, and watching sci-fi TV shows like Dr Who & Star Trek. He also plays the trumpet in band, is an ASB representative,  and is a part of the theater production at school.  A little known fact about Caleb is that he can solve a Rubik's Cube in less than 60 seconds!  Caleb's instructors have nominated him for Dancer of the Month because he has jumped right into all of his dance classes with a great energy and enthusiasm about learning.  Caleb is new to dance, but he doesn't let that hold him back from trying new things and pushing himself in classes.  Congratulations again, Caleb, and thank you for your hard work and enthusiasm in class!

February Student of the Month

Congratulations to our Dancer of the Month, Chloe Stenson!

Chloe is 8 years old and in the second grade at Washington Elementary School.  Chloe loves to dance because it's a great way to exercise, and she loves to take classes with her friends.  She loves her dance teachers and always looks forward to the recitals.  Chloe's favorite dance class is tap because it's so fun to get to make noise!  When Chloe isn't dancing she enjoys horse back riding, being at school, and spending time with her family and friends.  Some day Chloe would like to have her own horse!  The Image dance instructors have nominated Chloe as Dancer of the Month because she takes each class with a great attitude.  Chloe is always so positive and friendly to everyone, and that makes her so fun to have in class.  Congratulations, Chloe, and thank you for sharing your smile with all of us!

Image Performing Company at Starpower

In early February our Image Performing Company attended the Starpower Dance Competition. It was an exciting competition because it was the first time this year that we got to compete all of our group dances, specialty groups, and solos. We are so proud of our dancers for working so hard, their performances were wonderful to watch! Congratulations to all of our IPC dancers on a successful weekend performing and a special congratulations to everyone's favorite Director of Hip Hop, Vince-John Frijas, for being awarded not one, but TWO choreography awards. 

January Dancer of the Month

Congratulations to Ireland Phippen, our January Dancer of the Month!

Ireland is 13 years old and in the 7th grade at Mason Middle School where she loves to practice her new art, percussion.  Ireland loves coming to Image to dance, and her favorite style is Hip Hop.  It makes her happy and she feels like it fits her personality the most.  She looks forward every week to seeing friendly faces, and  learning new dances.  When she's not at the studio, you can find her listening to music, making up dances, and playing basketball or shopping with her friends. Something you may not know about Ireland is her obsession  with........... shoes!  Thank you Ireland for coming to class always eager to learn, and for always sharing your joy with others.  We love having you as part of our Image family!

Image Performing Company at NYCDA

Hello Dancers and Families!

I am so excited to be the first to write on our new Image Studio of Dance Blog! This will be updated weekly with studio news, updates, tips and tricks from your instructors, or just inspiration for our dancers! Be sure to check it regularly and to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram

This past weekend our Image Performing Company (IPC) was in Vancouver, WA for New York City Dance Alliance. It was their first convention and competition of the year and the dancers had an exceptional time! They all performed so well and learned a lot in dance classes. Everyone came back inspired and so excited for the competition season!

Some notable awards were the Critics Choice awards chosen as "standout numbers" by the judges, and Image was represented in every age division with jazz, ballet, and contemporary! Our Senior Hip Hop Team was selected as the Judges Pick, the only routine from the whole weekend selected to perform at the NYCDA closing show.  And as exciting as the high scores and 1st place plaques can be, we were most proud of our team for receiving the "Best Sport" Award for their respectful and supportive behavior backstage. We take our team to conventions to learn, make new friends, and share our love of dance; and that is definitely what our team did last weekend!

Congratulations to all of our dancers and instructors on a successful weekend! We are so proud of all of you! 

Be sure to keep checking our blog! We have lots of new and exciting things happening this spring, so make sure you stay informed!

Happy dancing!
