The weather may be getting cooler, but the summer was SO EPIC we’re still thinking about it. To reminisce and celebrate all of the amazing summer activities that happened at Center Stage, we’re highlighting a few of our favorite moments. We wish we could capture them all! Our Rec and Company Camps, Nationals, and of course, the studio-wide Recital are some of our favorites. Read on to soak in the summer sun fun!
35th Annual Recital
Last season was special for so many reasons, but on our 35th year, our annual all-studio recital made us feel a little more sentimental and proud. We love that our students get the chance to show their dances to their loved ones with their friends from all different levels and ages to really show what Center Stage students are all about! Our theme was HOLLYWOOD and our students were nothing short of star-worthy. We also had the chance to honor one of our most important teachers, Stacey Kopec, by giving her our first-ever Legacy Award. Check out the red carpet worthy moments:
Our recreational camps are special - they not only welcome dancers of all ages and levels but bring a mix of current students and new faces to our studio! Our camps included awesome themes like Frozen, Baby Shark, Ninja Warrior, Encanto, SING!, and more. We always feel a surge of new energy during our summer camps! See some of the fun captured below:
We are so proud of how hard all of our company camp members worked over the summer. It may be a break from school, but our dancers are dedicated and put in the work as they prepared for our competition company auditions. We had incredible special guests like Jon Bond, Brice Asnar, Mary Grace McNally, Marlee Hightower, Kiki Nyemchek, Cailyn Mathis, and Nicole Hennington. Check out some of the awesome moments:
In July, our entire competition Company traveled to Hall of Fame Dance Challenge Nationals in Schaumburg, IL.
After months and months of hard work at the studio, seeing our dancers pour their hearts out on stage was the perfect end to our competition season. We left the event as 9x National Champions. Congratulations dancers!
