My oldest started dance three years ago, and it has been a very important and influential part of her life. I’ll admit that the convenient location and reasonable class prices were the main reasons I initially picked Platinum Dance, but I quickly discovered that Platinum is so much more than just a dance studio.
I can’t rave enough about how amazing Platinum has been for my daughter. Often anxious and unsure, she struggles with finding a place of comfort and confidence. When she started dance lessons at Platinum we saw such a positive transformation. The instructors are patient yet structured and still offer a fun and playful classroom environment. Their love for dance and passion for instilling this love in young dancers is apparent in each lesson they teach.
I saw a quiet confidence develop as her love for ballet grew. Each week she looked forward to her class with Miss Lexi, and we looked forward to the adorable in-class holiday performances that showcased the new skills they were learning. Experiencing the end of the year recital, I was truly blown away by our little girl that fearlessly walked onto the stage in an auditorium filled with hundreds of people and did an arabesque in perfect time with the music.
I promised the girls that for their next birthday we would have a party at the dance studio. After years of planning big birthday parties that involved way too much work on my part, I can’t wait for a stress-free party! I’m not sure if the girls can handle the wait until their birthday. They are beyond excited about getting their hair and make-up done and dressing up for their own runway show!
Planning for Summer
Can you believe it is time to start planning for summer break already?! I won’t be making the same mistake I made last summer. Since it was our first summer off since starting school, I wasn’t aware of the importance of planning ahead. Not signing up for any summer classes led to an unstructured disaster. I’ve learned that having a predictable routine is important for us and helps keep everyone happy. When things are too unpredictable, it causes my daughter a lot of anxiety and it becomes impossible to get her to leave the house. If this is a common problem in your house, check out my post Get Your Kids out of the House (without yelling or bribing)
This year I’m planning a fun filled summer with a lot more structured activities. I was excited to see the classes and camps that Platinum was offering this summer. Princess Camp, Once Upon a Ballet, and Musical Theatre camp are a few of the fun classes that are available this year. Click HERE to see the full list of summer camps and classes.
