In each classroom, the instructors single out one student in each age group to give a National Scholarship to. This means that these dancers get to attend a week long National's convention at Myrtle Beach for free! Alyssa received her's for Ballet, Sammy for Contemporary, and Becky for Musical Theater. And our very own Bella received the Clifton Scholarship which is for a week long intensive at Keith Clifton's studio in CA.
Bella auditioned in the Senior room and was chosen to perform in the Wrap-it up Ceremony on Sunday where she was then awarded this amazing scholarship to attend classes with this industry great.

It's Snowing.... is FBC open?
When it comes to bad weather like snow, FBC does not follow the school closing (which one do we follow? The city, the private schools, and the surrounding counties never make the same decisions). We make our own decisions… Classes start at 4:00pm so often times things have melted away. If we decide to close, we will send out a mass email, post on the website and make an announcement on the voicemail at the studio stating that we are closed. If we are open, we won’t do anything. When do we make our decision? For the day classes, we make the decision at noon. For the afternoon classes, we make our decision by 2:00pm. For Saturday am classes, we make the decision by 8:00am. Please remember that FBC is located in the City and our streets do get scraped, sanded and salted quickly. If we are open but you do not feel it is safe to come, please stay home. If you ever miss a class, your child can make up in another class on another day or time.
Yes the studio is open today BUT Jazz 10 and Adv Jazz will be Canceled for tonight. As always, conditions are different and we have folks who live all over, so please make your own decision. As always, you can make up in another class.
