All students can participate–and virtually all do. Exceptions are when students just enrolled in our studio, they are injured, or miss too many classes to learn the dances.
In our last performance, 68 students danced, from every class level. Ages ranged from 4 to adult.
We hire professional dancers to perform solos and duets. Past dancers have been from Silicon Valley Ballet and Bay Pointe Ballet.

Two. Nutcracker in December, and a unique ballet in May or June. Both feature Heba’s original choreography.

Yes. Students look forward to the shows. They meet and watch fellow students dance, both older and younger. They learn how a performing arts production comes to fruition–through teamwork and cooperation. Everyone counts on everyone else.
