TDh is #13!


Let's Get This Party Started!

Welcome to The Dancing House where we're giddy to celebrate our 13th season.  What!? We're teenagers!  And just like a teenager, we're going through some changes.  But before we launch into the fun changes, let's take a moment to reflect.

Why I don't Pay 💵 for Dance Lessons


Why I Never Pay for Dance Classes.

As a dancer myself, a mama of a dancer, and teacher of many little dancers, this article always brings a tear to my eye. 

The art and discipline of dance has taught me so much of life.  It's beauty, it's hardships, it's growth, it's process and it's persistence.  Staying the course when it gets hard or feels impossible only to one day finally get it as if it was no sweat or tears in the making. 

Many of my life long friends are all part of the dance communit…
