- Website Portfolios: All students created an online website/portfolio where they will keep track of their experiences throughout the year
- Technique lessons in ballet and jazz / Combinations in lyrical and hip-hop
- “Thriller “Flash Mob choreography
- Head shots: All students had both studio and natural light head shots taken and will receive digital copies in the next month.
