Summer Registration opens in May 2020!
We are excited to to offer NEW dance camps as well as another performance at the Greensboro Grasshopper stadium!
Summer Class Expectations
Taking more than a couple weeks off can very negatively affect a serious dancer’s training. Dancers in Level 2 are strongly encouraged to attend our summer session. Dancers in levels 3-5 and our Team/Competition dancers are required to attend our summer sessions (June & July) OR a pre-professional intensive.
Grasshopper Game Performance: Friday, July 24th/6:00pm
Open to Foundations, BTJ1, and Levels 2-3
Sign up to learn a Christmas-themed jazz/funk dance to perform pre-game at the Greensboro Grasshopper’s “Christmas in July” themed game!
***Please note: Rehearsals will only meet for the first two weeks of our summer session, no rehearsal the third week. We will send practice videos as well!***
Tickets are $6 for performers, and $10 for other guests. Tickets will NOT be sold through SESD this year; all tickets may be purchased through Groupmatics–more details to come!
Performers need to meet in our section by 6:10 and remain there until Grasshopper directors lead us to the field. After the performance, dancers will return to their parents and we can sit back and enjoy the game! SESD performers/guests do not have to stay the entire time, but our group is typically featured on the big screen during the 7th inning stretch.

EFFECTIVE Fall 2018: Ballet Technique Classes
At SESD, a proper understanding of and the ability to execute correct technique is our highest priority. Just as you cannot build a sturdy house on sinking sand, you cannot build strong dancers without a strong foundation. Dancers will neither perform to their highest potential nor develop individual artistry if they are not confident in their training. Ballet is the most technical of all dance forms, and is the building block from which all other dance forms grow. Ballet training helps dancers understand their bodies and use their muscles most effectively. Therefore, we require all dancers in level 2-4 to enroll in Ballet class if they wish to enroll in Jazz/Tap or Modern classes. Acro dancers are strongly encouraged to enroll in a Ballet or Modern technique class, though it is not required. Hip Hop and Pom/Cheer dancers are not required to enroll in an additional technique class. Flip Flop Hip Hop should be taken in addition to Foundations or Ballet/Tap/Jazz 1.
We understand multiple classes can place financial strain on families who have multiple dancers enrolled in our program. We are happy to offer multiple class discounts as well as sibling discounts, and scholarships are available on an at-need basis. Please send scholarship inquiries to our director at [email protected] or call (336) 509-8154 for more information.
