We are so excited for our spring recital this year, something new for us and you: Cinderella! A classic fairytale told through ballet. This year's performance is May 14, which will be here before you know it. All the details are posted, mark your calendars, we can't wait!
Even though we have our hands full getting ready for Copelia this weekend, for those of you starting to think about summer and beyond, our new schedule for 2015-2016 classes has been posted and the updated registration form, as well as our summer camp offerings and registration information. Summer camps are being offered for all ages this year, and space is limited, so sign up early. We are looking forward to a great rest of the year!
We have added new classes to our calendar! We are thrilled to be able to offer two new Tap classes, an additional PreBallet, and Adult Ballet. Check our schedule!
Things really are coming along nicely at the new studio space, however, due to some minor construction delays and a few odds and ends, we will be canceling classes for next week. The studio was going to be closed Monday for Labor Day, but now we will not have any classes the rest of the week. We are very positive that we will open the new space on Monday, Sept. 8, 2014!
In order not to lose valuable class and rehearsal time, we will be adding on a week of classes in December, for the week of Dec. 15. Our calendar will be updated to reflect this change. Winter break will now begin the week of December 22.
We do apologize for any inconvenience this delay has caused, but are sure our cause is worth it! The new studio is beautiful and our transition will be much smoother once everything is in place. Thank you for your understanding!
We are so thrilled to be moving to our new studio space at the end of August. We will be forever grateful for the graciousness of our host Spring of Life UMC for the last several years, but we are ready for a new start in our own space. With mirrors! The studio is conveniently located just down Narcoossee, at 1424 S. Narcoossee Rd. St. Cloud. You can check out the map below. We hope to see you all there.
Our last day of classes at SOLUMC will be Thursday, August 28, 2014, and we will be starting classes the next week on September 2, at the new studio. The studio is closed that Monday in observance of Labor Day. Updated: Classes will be cancelled the week of Sept. 2, to restart the following week, beginning Sept. 8.

Our uber-intensive 2014 Summer Dance Camp came to a close with a fantastic presentation for family and friends, showing off the talents of our wonderful dancers and the proof of their hard work over the last two weeks. We are so proud of you all!
On Wednesday our Summer Camp warrior dancers showed off for their parents and friends just what they had been up to for the last nine days. It was a lovely show featuring all the styles they focused on over the last two weeks: ballet, jazz, lyrical and tap. They loved the tap! We are definitely looking into the possibility of offering some kind of tap classes later in the fall.
Also on Wednesday our guest instructor Mr. Vladimir was here for the morning session. I think it was a great experience for all of us and we hope he can come back sometime in the future.
From all of us here at CSO Ballet, we are so proud of all the dancers and how hard they worked over the course of the camp. They have all show great improvement and it was a great way to start the school year!
Thank you to everyone involved with the show that helped to make it a success!
