🌟 Faculty Spotlight 🌟

Meet Mr. Vadim - one of our incredible ballet teachers! After an amazing career as a professional ballet dancer, Mr. Vadim went on to earn his “Ballet Master” title at the Moscow State Choreographic Institute 🎓

He joined our teaching staff 8 years ago, and we are so lucky to have him at Encore! When he is not busy teaching our dancers, he can be found at the Classical Ballet of Fredericksburg, where is the co-director.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and passion for ballet with us, Mr. Vadim!

We are loving all the smiling faces coming through our doors 😃 So so great to be back!

Broadway Bound is nonstop fun! The kids leave the camp with new skills, lots of pals, and huge smiles 🤩

We are counting down the days until Broadway Bound Summer Camp! If your child loves to entertain, they will love this camp.

Hello,

I've sent you a Facebook Message (on Saturday) but I also wanted to post something of your page.

I spoke with Raynor (in October) regarding renting your Studio Space so I can record some Dance Tutorials. Is your Studio available on Saturday December 5th?

Please let me know. Thank you for your time. :)

Wacky wear week at Encore Performers!
Hi! I accidently purchased three extra tickets for SUNDAY B Recital. If you are interested in purchasing, please PM/Private Message me!
My daughter accidentally ended up with one boot that isn't hers but looked almost identical. As embarrassed as I am to say...this happened late spring at a Monday class! If you have similar boots and/or noticed the same - let me know! This is the one that is not ours:
Just For Kicks was wonderful! Thank you so much for a fabulous year of learning and a tremendous recital experience!
We have two Recital B tickets available for today's (Saturday) Recital B in exchange for tomorrow's Recital B, or willing to purchase two tickets for tomorrow.
We have 5 tickets for Saturday's show that we are looking to swap for Sunday's show. Is anyone interested in trading? Or we can just sell the five tickets for Saturday and buy our own for Sunday. Anyone interested?
