Summer is coming to an end and the time to prepare for school has finally arrived! Beauty for Ashes Contemporary School of Dance is excited to announce that classes will begin September 12, 2016. Upon the arrival of the 2016- 2017 school year, Beauty for Ashes Contemporary School of Dance (BFACSD) invites a plethora of new opportunities for growth and development. Additionally, we are incorporating new changes to some of our core programs. One of the new and exciting upcoming programs is our new Vocal Arts Program. It will be taught by Mrs. Laurice Lanier-Trowell, a Julliard graduate, who traveled all around the globe with a group called “The Three Mo Divas.” This year, BFACSD aims to offer a broad range of experiences in order to build the foundation for a deeper understanding of advanced learning with traditional and contemporary education.
Beauty For Ashes Youth Dance Ensemble (B4A Youth Dance Ensemble): Ages 8-20
B4A Youth Dance Ensemble is dedicated to stimulating dance while promoting dance education to a live audience within the Hampton Roads Community. Students are required to transform their dance abilities into a staged performance. Our goal is to promote a positive, developmentally sound atmosphere with lots of individual attention. B4A Youth Dance Ensemble will cultivate the students’ talents to reach their highest potential. By encouraging our students to aspire toward their own personal goals in a manner that celebrates individuality and collective ensemble work will result in the promotion of self-worth, hard work, and constructive body image.
Selection for B4A Youth Dance Ensemble is by audition only. Auditions will be held September 17, 2016 at 2:30p.m. at BFACSD. Please inform Mr. Riddick if your child will be turning 8 years old within the first 3 months of the Fall Semester. They may audition for the B4A Youth Dance Ensemble upon his approval.
Vocal Arts Program: Ages 5-20
BFACSD Vocal Arts Program is contoured to provide dedicated and professional faculty, private and small classes, and one-on-one coaching for young artists through the study of a variety of traditional and contemporary musical genres. Every student will have access to a balanced, comprehensive and sequential program that gradually builds many kinds of literacy while developing intuition, cognitive skills, and dexterity into unique forms of expression. This program adopts a warm and nurturing environment, where students will mature their artistic and technical skills, performance skills, and construct a strong, consistent vocal practice that will allow them to continue their education on an accredited college-university level.
So collaborate with us in allowing your child to be a part of the BFACSD experience. We look forward to a wonderful start of a successful year!
