Join us for an inspiring way to bring in the New Year!
Lauren Ritchie brings an exciting new seminar:
– Strategies for Studio Owners & Dance Teachers
“Are we there yet?!” We’ve been training, creating, rehearsing, cleaning, and preparing for the competitive seasons for months, and still, the stage can feel so far away. Lauren will offer a blend of education, inspiration, and applicable exercises that supports team passion, grit and goals. Together we can take on the new year, and the final push to competitions, with enthusiasm and a few more tools in our teaching tool belt.
