October News

October brings much fun to the studio! Our first observation week celebrates Halloween, and students are invited to dress in their Halloween costume during classes this week. Appropriate dance shoes should be worn. (Regular dancewear may be worn by those who choose not to don a costume.)

During the observation periods, parents of enrolled students ages 18 mos. and up will be welcomed into the classroom, where they can watch, photograph and record their child's classes. We look forward to seeing you at this always-fun event!

Best regards,


Alyssa Scotten & Vicki Gillaspy
G. Scotten Talent Center


Motivation Project - November 10-14

The Motivation Project rewards students with class attendance coupons which entitle children to a prize (or prizes) of their choice during specified coupon redemption weeks. This is a popular program that encourages timely and regular attendance and also conveys valuable lessons about setting goals and saving for the future.


Our first ticket redemption week will be November 10-14. One additional redemption week will be held in the Spring. Tickets can be redeemed - and prizes can be collected - at the desk during regular office hours.
