A few words from Ms. Kerrie:
Dear Forevermore Families,
As our studio grows, we continue to expand, develop, and revise the curriculum of our programs to provide the highest quality arts education for your children. Inside your registration packets you will find Class Recommendation Cards for the 2018-2019 school year based on student evaluation and teacher recommendations. We are so grateful to work with all the children who attend Forevermore and proud of the growth we see in each and every child.
The Benefits of Ballet
It is the philosophy of Forevermore Dance & Theatre Arts, as of most dance professionals, that classical dance training (Ballet) provides the best foundation for all forms of dance. It develops beautiful, strong bodies through its emphasis on good posture and the balanced development of strength and flexibility. It provides the dance technique (the how-to), and the vocabulary (steps), used by all dance styles while providing the discipline and structure with which all dancers can express their individuality. It is strongly recommended, though not required, that all dancers study ballet because it is an excellent complement to other dance styles.
Once-a-week classes are considered an introduction to ballet and are appropriate for young beginning students. For all third-year students and for older beginners who are more serious about learning the art form of ballet, we encourage taking ballet class at least twice a week.
Dreams of Pointe Shoes
Many young girls also dream of wearing pointe shoes someday. Students between the ages of 12-15 who have completed three years of ballet training, including at least one year in which they have taken ballet class twice a week, may be ready to study Pointe with approval from the director. Pointe classes are held separately from ballet technique. They start with Beginning Pointe class and progress to Advanced Pointe. Pointe work requires that the student take ballet class at least twice a week to ensure a dancer is strong enough to execute the vigorous exercises involved and to prevent injury.
Boys Can Dance Too!
Ballet isn’t just for girls! Did you know many professional football players are required to cross train in ballet classes? At Forevermore, we believe that boys can absolutely pursue dreams of dancing too! Ask us about our Boys Scholarship Program.
Private lessons are another great way to continue to enhance your dancer’s training, giving them the opportunity to work one-on-one with a specialist to improve technique, work on flexibility, prepare choreography, or perfect material for an audition. Our teachers are here to help our students succeed in any way we can!
I explain to all our students that studying dance is similar to learning to play an instrument, only your body is the instrument and the more you practice the better you become! We look forward to continuing to learn and grow together with you in our 15th Anniversary Season! Please feel free to call or email with any questions or concerns.

Reminder about our jewelry policy
Just a friendly reminder that we do not allow jewelry or valuables in classes and rehearsals. Necklaces, bracelets, and dangling earrings can fly off and hit someone or break into pieces on the floor, creating hazardous dancing conditions. We love our students and want to do all we can to prevent injuries and keep valuable possessions from being damaged or lost. We thank you for your understanding!
