Start the Corvallis School year off with Dance Classes at Regional School of Ballet. 

‘Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.’
― Oprah Winfrey

 

We’ve been having a great summer session.  Hope you have made it to some classes! 

It’s fun to see RSB dancers returning to take classes.  Molly has been away at school.  She says she has good memories of dancing at RSB and loves to see everyone again. 

Andrea F has come back to the studio because she enjoys dance for exercise and wanted to come to the studio where she grew up dancing.

Jenna loves ballet.  She recently moved back to the area and RSB is where she started dancing as a child.

Ashley has been traveling and working after college. She has moved back to the area and is back dancing with us. Ashley returned to RSB last year because she likes Shelly Svoboda and the teachers at RSB. She likes how the teachers have strong backgrounds in dance and how they teach good technique. Ashley says that she too has great memories and that RSB is like a family.

We’ve had a sighting of Andrea H, too.  It’s been great to see everyone and we love to see how RSB dancers keep dance in their lives.

Student Spotlight

Erin H and Eve E are in the RSB spotlight.  Eve and Erin cousins taking Beginning Ballet at Regional School of Ballet in Corvallis. 

Erin is 9 years old and has been taking ballet for 4 years.  In class she likes to do Plies, Grand Jete, Polka Step and Triplet walks.  Her most memorable dance moment is performing in the Nutcracker.   Erin’s favorite dancer is her teacher Shelly Svoboda.

Outside of ballet Erin likes to run, bike, rock climb, make arts and crafts, and to play outside.  Her favorite school subjects are math and art. She likes to  listen to Brandi Carlile, read Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth, and watch Harry Potter and Percy Jackson movies.  Erin’s best personal achievement is when she climbed to the top of Dimple Hill.  The person Erin admire’s most is her brother Gavin.

Someday, Erin would like to be a teacher or a cook and to go to Mexico.

Eve is 8 years old and has been taking ballet for 3 years.  In class she likes to do Grand Jete and the Triplet walks.  Her most memorable dance moment is performing in the Nutcracker. 

When Eve isn’t in class, she likes to play outside, go rollerblading, attend school, and eat yummy food.  In school, she likes to learn about nutrition.  Eve likes to listen to Louis Armstrong, read Magic Treehouse, and watch Labyrinth and Aladin.  The person Eve admires most is her mom.

Eve would like to be a teacher someday and to go to Mexico, where it’s hot!

Summer Intensives

Are you in Advanced or Advanced Intermediate Ballet?  Now is the time to start looking for a summer intensive dance program!  In a summer intensive, you can learn new choreography, improve technique, make new friends in the dance world and get inspired by the artistry of other dancers.  Students from RSB have gone to intensives from coast to coast in the USA and Canada. 

Can’t get away?  We have some great opportunities right here in Oregon.  Check out the programs offered through Eugene Ballet and Oregon Ballet Theater and see if one of your dance friends will carpool with you.  Please share the programs you find with us on our Facebook page,  www.facebook.com/regionalballet.
