We are having a number of small shows in order to maximize the amount of attendance allowed. As we get closer to the show date, I will release more information regarding ticket purchases (the number each family can bring) as I would like to wait for the latest VA executive orders.

Both Recitals will be held at:
Patriot Park Amphitheater
510 Smith Station Road
Fredericksburg, VA 22408

Students will receive a FREE downloadable copy of the end of the year Spring Show.
This will be an HD video that plays on computers, tablets, and smart TV's.

Summer Schedule & Camps are here!

Enrollment starts now.
Email is best, but call or stop in if you have questions.
Click here to see our summer camps and our 7 week summer course. Starts June 14.

Camps
Dance with Princesses, star in a show, create art & movement, and explore the earth.

New Class ACRO!
Will focus on the five divisions of AcroDance: Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering and Tumbling. 
"Acrobatic dance is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context."


Mindful Meditation Workshop taught by Ms Taylor
All are welcome! Whether this would be your first time, or you practice often. Join us on a Friday night for a meditation session. We will make  essential oil roller blends that connect with our theme of that nights meditation. Bring a yoga mat if you have one, pillow, blanket or whatever else makes you comfortable. FBC will have extras too. Pick one Friday to try it out or come to all three! 

Dance Makers Competition & Convention

FBC competed in their first competition over the weekend where they also took classes from some of the industries greats in Contemporary, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Musical Theater. After two day's of learning and dancing, our FBC students hit the stage to perform. Two of our groups, Teen Contemporary Ballet and Jr Ballet Teams both won the Style High Score in their Category. Our Teen Contemporary Ballet, Sr Contemporary, Sr Jazz, and Jr Ballet all received special Directors' Pick Awards for Special Recognition. And the Sr Contemporary Duo team of Maddie & Becky received a High First Place and a Special Judges' Pick Award ("most entertaining").
