27 May In the News – Summer is on its Way
begin June 3rd.
Words from Ms. Kathy
Dear families, friends, and supporters,
I hope you all had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend.
We are now transitioning into summer and have said a fond farewell to a very busy season for Chamberlain School of Ballet and Chamberlain Ballet, in general. First and foremost, I would like to thank all our students and families for your wonderful support over the 2018-19 season. We welcomed a lot of new faces to the studio this year, and one was even quite furrier than others (Drax says hi from Chicago). You all have made a tremendous impact on our staff and students.
To those of you who are moving away, we wish you the very best on your relocation. Some of our families/students are moving out of town, state, and even the country!
We will miss you tremendously.
We also understand that dance is not for everyone. We do ask that you please inform Ms. Carolyn if you do not plan to continue dancing in the Summer/Fall.
We will miss you tremendously, and you are certainly welcome back.
Chamberlain Ballet also graduated several seniors this year. We will be highlighting them a bit more in the Chamberlain Performing Arts newsletter, but for now I want to make sure I also tell them:
We will miss you tremendously, and please do drop by the studio and say when you can!
Chamberlain School of Ballet also has a lot going on this summer. We are sending numerous students to very prestigious summer programs across the country. From School of American Ballet, to Pacific Northwest Ballet, to Bolshoi Ballet Academy and more; we have students who are in for some amazing months of dance. We also have a special individual who will be at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. Mr. Fox will be guest teaching at CPYB. I am sure their students will absolutely love Mr. Fox’s teaching style just as much as our students love taking his classes. I know you all will be back soon, but to those studying and teaching elsewhere:
We will miss you all tremendously, but hurry back because Nutcracker is just around the corner.
You see, The Nutcracker is our most in depth production of the year. We have spent DECADES making sure we are able to put forth our most quality production of the holiday classic. With putting forth a production every year since 1989; thousands of dancers, many many crew members, faculty, rehearsal masters and mistresses, and countless volunteers have all worked very hard to bring joy to as many as are willing to have us. One crucial individual, who was always willing to have us, was our dear friend Margaret Putnam. Margaret served the North Texas dance scene for many many years as our top and most spirited critic. Without her voice to keep all of Dallas’ dancers and companies at their most vigilant, our community could not have progressed nearly as far as we have. Margaret and her family are very dear to me and mine. Margaret passed in the recent days, and I can’t tell you how much I would like to say:
We will miss you tremendously.

Be on the lookout!!
We are starting to get edits of the photos from backstage at our spring production. When all was said and done, our students had an amazing time dancing for such a huge and cheerful audience. Please enjoy some photos from the performance, and please be sure to follow us on instagram. We will be posting photos and videos of the dances in the coming days and weeks.
Be at your best!!
Summer sessions begin June 3rd, and we are ready to spread our wings.
The summer program allows students of dance to expand their horizons and explore new avenues of dance.
For the young student it is the opportunity be in a creative environment and further friendships through a summer of dance and wonder, such as in our fairy tale themed dance camps!
For the more aspiring student, summer is an ideal time to hone technical skills and improve strength and control which will often result is advancing come the new school term.
For the intermediate to advance student traveling oversees, we hope you take classes during your time away from the studio and enjoy meeting new friends and learning from excellent dance instructors while away.
