Dance Makers Convention & Competition

FBC_Team_2023_2024Congratulations to our FBC Dance Team! The dancers got to take some amazing classes from industry professionals. This was our 1st competition this season. I am so very proud that FBC received the Shaffer Studio Award. "This will be awarded to the studio that shows support, encouragement, professionalism and shares their love for dance with others throughout the event." I am so very proud of my dancers, the parents, and my FBC Dance Team choreographers for representing FBC in such a positive light.

A special highlight: The duo of Madisyn and Leo received the highest honor of a DanceAgain! award. Only 6 dance pieces are chosen to perform again at the Sunday Wrap it Up ceremony. They also received a Judges' Top Pick award in the Duo/Trio category. Only 1 of those are given out.

Snow Policy

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. Most of our 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.

Closed for a Snow Day!

Today is Tuesday, January 16.

Students will be able to make up classes missed by snow. Once we are back open, talk to your child's teacher or stop in the office to find classes that your dancer can make up in.
