No Dance Class on Friday March 13th! Our BBDA Staff & Dance Addiction Members will be heading to Vancouver, WA for training & competition! All Friday Classes can be made up in other classes throughout the week. We will also be holding a Free/Make Up Dance Day during Spring Break on Tuesday April 7th from 12:30pm-3:30pm at BBDA. This is a great time for your dancer to make up any hours missed or if they just need to come in and work on skills & technique! Extra studio time is always a great opportunity. Dancers will also get to showcase their routines to their fellow dance friends!
“The Valley Can Dance!” Each year, our Dance Addiction Members & select BBDA dancers perform their routines at Sunnyside High School. This is a great event for local dance studios to get together & showcase their routines. As routines are being finished and costume are arriving, we will choose dances to be performed at this event. If your dancer is chosen to be in this event, it is $10.00. As of right now, All Dance Addiction routines & select solo routines will be selected. We will provide everyone with a list of dances by the end of March.
