Another amazing week at Dance Dynamix!

The dancers are finishing up their routines and we will have videos to send home so that the dancers are able to practice over spring break!

Mark Your Calendars

As announced a few weekends ago, dancers will participate in an opening number!

This year the entire studio community will be in the opening number! The dancers will start learning their routines this week and we will also send videos home for you to practice over the break.

We are looking at having a rehearsal on May 4th with all of the dancers from  9:00am – 1:00pm to practice our opening number.

Details and schedule for the day will be in you inbox soon, but make sure to mark your calendars!


Picture Week Is Approaching

Picture Week is April 8th – 13th.  More info in picture day will hit you later this week.

Slight slice on the behind the scenes of it all — Miss Jenae has had preliminary meeting with Mr. Rodney (who’s work last year proved that he is aaaahhhmmmaazzziiinngg….last years pictures were gorge) but the cost for digitals was way too expensive.

Miss Jenae’ is 100% sure we are going back to print pictures and packages that you can select. This should decrease the price by about 50%. Again more on this to come! But we are excited about quality pics at an amazing price point!


Time For You To Bust A Move!

The Parent Performance Class kicks off Saturday, April 27th!

Dance Dynamix sure was busy last week!

The dancers are moving nicely through their recital dances and the instructors are working hard to finish up teaching the routine so we can send out videos for you to practice at home over spring break!!

Surprise!! – I bet you weren’t expecting your dancer to come home with costume in hand.  It was sooo good last Saturday to see our dancers in costume. Costume distribution is the #1 sign that recital time is around the corner. If your dancer didn’t get their costume, don’t worry more costumes will be going home in the coming weeks


Company Open Call was amazing!!! Thank you to all the dancers who attended a full day of dance. It was great seeing your dancer embrace challenges and expand their skills during company open call. Keep an eye out to your email for your dancers next steps!

I am so glad you all had a good time at Mommy & Me! Thank you to all the Dance Dynamix Diva moms and daughters that attended Mom + Me . I have heard and seen nothing but good things from you via Facebook, Instagram, and the caring thoughts and comments you have emailed or texted about the event.


You asked, we answered!!

A Pictures Worth 1,000 Words!

Happy Monday Dance Family, 

Jenaé here with one question: 

Can you spot the mom? I mean she blends right in, right 🙂 

IMG_1666.JPG

Pictures like this, with our dancers doing life together outside the studio are exactly how we know that women’s empowerment starts with girls empowerment!  And it’s how I know that in an age of busyness, social media overload, and a race for the top that your MOM voice matters. 

With a thriving community of moms like you, we couldn’t let Women’s History Month roll by without celebrating.

We are so excited to host Mom & Me or as i’ve heard many of you say “Dynamic Diva’s & Their Daughters”

Join us Sunday March 24th from 2:00 – 4:00 for cupcakes, conversation & cool bonding activities for girls age 4 – 16 and their moms.

This intimate event will include special surprise guest speakers and rapid fire age-appropriate panel style pow-wows! Some tentative topics include:

Multiple Passions – Where to plant to best grow! 

Wildest Dreams – Deepest Fears 

STEM Mania 

Going With Your Gifts 

Self Confidence vs. Self Assurance 

Talk About Uncomfortable Things {Boys, Books, Booty}  

Independence – Skills middle and high school girls need to learn now to “make it” 

Lookout: Eye See You on Social 

And a host of other topics and age appropriate sessions 


Now, most of you know i’m a big visionary and an OK planner so I might have been a little overzealous with the RSVP date of 3/23.

I hate to back it up on you, but after matching the calendar with my mind, the reality is we need to plan out our final age groupings, solidify facilitators, place a cupcake order, and produce all the materials and supplies needed for out event….

With that in mind, to give time to adequately prepare a spectacular event for you, i’m asking that you  

RSVP BY Wednesday 3/20 

This will give me Thursday and Friday to solidify everything and finalize our agenda! 

Looking forward to sending time with you on Sunday March 24th from 2:00 – 4:00 for cupcakes, conversation & cool bonding activities for you and your girls age 4 – 16.

As always, if any questions feel free to reply to this email. 

Warmly, 

Jenaé

Happy Friday Dance Family, 

Jenae here again. I hope this message finds you enjoying the spectacular spring weather. 

We’re closing out your week with a Dance Dynamix Dance Company Celebration!! 

image (1).jpg

We are over the moon excited about and BLOWN away at how the entire Dance Dynamix Dance Company (3DC) represented last weekend.

Their first competition was totally a success, but between a 30 day stretch of growth and goals Talk about a COME UP!!

The commitment, the character, the confidence, THE COMMUNITY.

From our….

moms making the improvements to the Wakanda props

to our Dance Dads taking over, pulling an all nighter to hinge up the set boxes,

to the Wakanda make up mom line,

to be prop parents in the set boxes,

to the Starburst Team  bringing ALL the SPUNK to their jazz and tap dance,

to the the Pop Rokx and Sparkx doubling down on their rehearsal time and pulling out ALL the PIZAZZ

to the Fireworkx/Bombshells igniting the stage with ENERGY

to our team Ms. Jaye, Ms. Chi Chi, Ms. Darilyn, Ms. April, Ms. BriDe, Ms. Angel….

A full run down of competition results are below but in the meantime just know this community and care we have for each other and common desire to see our kids grow into amazing humans is irreplaceable.

💛
💙

Super grateful    CYou down with 3DC?  Click Here To RSVP for Company Open Call! 


Our community this year has been crazy with everyone (moms, dads, and grandparents alike) jumping in, doing hair, making a factory lines for hair and make up, transporting props, pressing hems, hinging set boards and the older dancers caring for their little sisters.  Honestly – my feelings are comprised of our entire company unit.

Me & my shadow ya’ll held it down w/ the babies using videos do learn changes. That first extra Friday class I was BLOWN AWAY by how pumped they were to show me their stuff.  They doubled down on rehearsal time with the changes and it paid off!! To go from not making overalls the 1st come to 2nd overall 30 days later is the COME UP of all come ups!!

 WAKANDA – WAKANDA – WAFREAKINGKANDA!! was phenomenal!!!  AAAAAAALLLLLLL the extra rehearsal was WORTH it.

Thank you to Marie, Tiffany, and Mechele for forming the make up line.

Thank you to the dads for making the prop easy to carry, easy to transport, easy to assemble. You all pulled an all nighters at the studio to make it happen and it was so so so so so appreciated!  

Some of the funnest parts of Wakanda is our prop parents come out the box like “ YYYEEESSS, we did it!!” — it’s very rare that we’re able to share the exact same experiences as dancers and parents, but production is one that unites us all. 


Speaking of shared experiences- in honor of women’s history month the studio sent out an email for an afternoon of conversation, cupcakes, and interactive activities you all. We’re excited to facilitate something like this for our studio families and I hope that you and you’re daughters will attend. RSVP BY 12:00PM ON 3/23

SPECIAL EVENTS : {Women’s History Month} Mommy & Me!!

Hey dance family! 

Jenaé here!! We’re taking a break from the usual weekly newsletter to bring you all things 

Go-Getter Girl Power!!  

If you’ve been active on any social platforms or keeping up with the news, you know March is Women’s History Month. 

I have to say, reading all the blogs, website content and seeing extra special news segments like “HerStory” has been so inspiring and motivating.

But over the past week it’s really had me thinking that from what I can see in the main stream media, the conversation only includes adult age women….left out of the picture are our young girls….who in a few short years will be the women we’re raising today to be tomorrows leaders.  

Regardless of if your dancer is in the performance program or company program, in the studio, our team really gets the privilege of seeing women’s empowerment start a young age with girls empowerment. 

To celebrate Women’s History Month and grow with our girls in an impactful comprehensive way, we’re excited to host Mommy & Me!! 

IMG_9123 (1).jpg

Join us Sunday March 24th from 2:00 – 4:00 for an interactive conversation, cupcakes, & cool bonding activities for girls age 4 – 16 and their moms. With special surprise guest speakers and rapid fire age-appropriate panel style pow-wows. 

RSVP BY 12:00PM ON 3/23 

This event is open to the public, but space is limited. To give you, our members 1st dibs on securing a spot for you and your daughter we won’t start talking about it publicly until Saturday. But feel free to pass to your friends and family who may want to attend. 

We’re looking forward to chatting about real life, leadership and legacy with you!


Looking for some Mommy Me Time aka time with NO Kids???

The Syncopated Ladies are performing tomorrow 3/14 at the National Gallery of Art for their Evenings At the Edge series.

Okkk that’s all for now!  I’ll be back in your inbox on Friday with more of my WHO RUN THE WORLD? GIRLS mantra sharing a celebration of the amazing job our dance company members did last weekend at competition. 

Continue to have a great week!

Want to know the story behind this picture ?

Screenshot 2019-02-18 at 11.42.40 AM.png

Behind every great Dance Dynamix Company (3DC) Team is a squad of even greater parent supporters!!

We’ve been talking about 3DC for your dancers but I wanted to take some time to let you know a little secret. The parents really have all the fun and are just as much a team as their kids.  

As important as it is for dancers to learn to work as a team, it’s amazing for us to watch our parents become a team as well.

Most of the parents in this picture perfect selfie have been apart of the 3DC for 5+ years.

The bond they have built together is key when it comes down to our #3DC family feel.

We see you all chattin’ it up in the lobby while your dancer is in class and it warms our hearts to know real relationships are being created by having your dancer at Dance Dynamix.

I know that you would be a perfect addition to our 3DC family!

So whip out your calendar and….

What’s the Dance Dynamix Dance Company?

The Dance Dynamix Dance Company (DDDC) is an award-winning dance company compiled of young dancers who LOVE dance without any extra parent push. These dancers love to perform, thrive in a challenging environment and aspire to develop their dance technique and artistry in a team based environment.

Company members train in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, & Hip Hop.  

2018 – 2019 Company members will be selected from our student base through a Company Open Call. Company Open Call is when your dancer, for one week, attends existing company classes to see if they too will could benefit from the increased challenge that Company classes bring.  

Company members are selected and placed on a specific company team based a combination of factors.  But generally dancers are invited based on their inherent love for dance, positive attitude, dedication and leadership.  

Participation on DDDC enables dancers to develop dance skills, but more importantly, it gives them the opportunity to learn critical life skills, which they will carry with them into adulthood. DDDC members learn commitment, dedication, self-confidence, teamwork, how to work under pressure and how to accept triumph and defeat in a gracious manner.

DDDC represents Dance Dynamix and competes in regional competitions and proudly holds several National Titles as well.

Company Open Call Week is   

March 18th – March 23rd

Any Dance Dynamix dancer age 3+ is eligible to attend.

Here’s Some More Dance Dynamix Dance Company Info:

  • DDDC is broken up in to several teams based on skill level, maturity, and social development
  • Company dancers attend a required to attend a Summer Intensive during the 1st two weeks in August. This years Intensive dates are Aug 5th – Aug 16th
  • During the dance academic year, Company dancers take between 2 – 6 hours of class per week based their team placement
