      Susan Currier
      will be teaching Ballet l , II, and the Ballet 11+ - Teen class. Since she was 4 years old, she grew up around dancing as her father was professional dancer and an assistant choreographer for the original Mickey Mouse Club. Susan eventually  assumed ownership of her father’s  dance studio in southern California and operated it for 15 years. Coming to Las Vegas she taught Elise Vallé’s adult ballet class at the Backstage Studio for professionals. Heather Nelson will be teaching one of the Advanced Pointe III classes and Thomas DiSabato returns to teach the Jazz IV class.


        Do you have a friend, neighbor, or colleague at work who may be looking for a positive, creative outlet for their kids ? Have them sign up at “Backstage” and mention your name and you receive a free class for 4 weeks for each class they enroll in and pay a month’s tuition for. No limit.


        For those students moving up out of Combo 5/6 , they may try any age 7-10 class for a week, to better help you decide on which class(es) to take. Older students may try any class that they have not previously tried or taken.


        Tuition remains unchanged and is due the first week of classes. Aug. will be prorated, then, it will be the full tuition amount every month Sept. thru June as the year averages out to 4 classes per month. There is no charge for the few classes in July to get us to this 4 classes per month average.



        We carry the required dancewear by top of the line manufacturers: Bloch, Capezio, Balera, and Revolution, and at comparable or prices less then Dancewear Stores. The dress code will be strictly enforced after the September adjustment period.

                                                                                                                                                                       See you soon,

                                                                                                                                                                       Steven Becker
