September Birthdays @ Phoenix Rising Dance Studio

Does your dancer have a birthday coming up?? Make sure you let Mr. Will or Mr. Justin know so we can shout it from the rooftops. The day that we cam e into this world is extremely special because there is NOBODY like us in the entire world! We all have something special to add that if we don’t then it will be lost forever and it can never be reimagined because it is us who were meant to carry out this special goal, aspiration or passion!

Every time you wake up, think of your dreams and watch you make your way to accomplishing them!!

Here at Phoenix Rising, we use dance to create that confidence and character needed to carry out you our your dancer’s life goals and dreams! We are so happy that you have chosen us, and we do not take this task lightly! This Birthday remind your little one that FEAR is the largest killer of dreams, but they have two choices…… 1. Face Everything And Run or Face Everything and Rise!!

Adult Dancers and parents with mature teens…this one’s for you!

We hope you are having a great start to the school year or you’re still enjoying that last bit of summer fun!

This Blog Post is to let you know the classes we have available for adult and older teen students at present. We are trying to encourage the growth of our program at this age level as there are few places in Indianapolis where you can ‘drop in’. I believe these classes are going to work out considering you(Adult dancers) and/or your(Parents with teens) dancers are currently doing so much outside of the dance studio! I have spoken with so many about what classes you can take to grow or how a teen can become a Phoenix Rising Youth Company Team member or how a pre-professional can become a part of Phoenix Rising Dance Company, but at this age, we know that their are one million and one things we’d all love to do!!

We can offer you a way for you to do these things and dance!! Dance can aid in creating healthy and whole human beings, and although we do offer competitive and recreational dance here at Phoenix Rising, our mission is to build confidence and character through an authentic dance education and to allow the spark from creativity to ignite the flame of artistry. That is the heart of Phoenix Rising Dance Studios!

I have attached a video so that you can see a sampling of the level of our evening classes offer you or your dancer! This is an intermediate to advanced dance, and was just learned in one half hour period. This class, taught by yours truly, 😉 starts off with a rigorous warm up focused on strengthening and lengthening and concludes with a dance combination focused on movement quality, musicality and dynamics.

Monday Advanced Jazz 7:15-8:30pm

Tuesday Intermediate Jazz 7:15-8:30pm

Wednesday Adv. Ballet 7:00-8:30pm (for those who have had 4-5yrs of ballet training)

Wednesday Beginning Ballet 7:00-8:30pm (for those with who have had little to no ballet training)

Thursday Adv. Contemporary 7:15-8:30pm

Thursday Beginning Hip Hop 7:00-8:30pm

Friday Int./Adv. Hip Hop 6:30-8:30pm 

I am constantly trying to find the best way to help our dancers of all ages grow, but also allow you, the dancer, be in a place where you feel empowered, included, and encouraged to push beyond any limiting beliefs. We hope that you’ll come out and enjoy what we have to offer our adult and pre-professional dancers!!
