Dancers, Parents, Faculty and Staff:

It is with a very heavy heart and much sadness that I announce that after 39 years I will be retiring and closing Kathy's Studio of Dance. After our Recital in June, the studio will close. This was a very difficult decision for me to make but the dance world is changing and I am no longer up for the challenge. I started my studio with the idea that anyone should be able to dance-no matter their size, talent or ability to pay. I wanted a professional studio that taught children and adults of all ages- structure, discipline and team work. This was how all the dance studios were back when I started 39 years ago. This worked for many years but times have changed and I need to leave the education of dance to those who are young, fresh and are able to change with the new dance world.

I am happy to announce that a new dance school will be opening in our place. I did not want to leave my dancers, teachers or staff without a possible place to continue their love for dance. Mrs. Christine Juarez will be opening her school WEST SEATTLE PERFORMING ARTS here in our location after we finish our Recital. She will be contacting my students about her program in the near future. This new school will be different than ours as the way I ran my studio is obsolete and not viable in this new generation of dancers. The new dance school will have Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern/Contemporary, Tumbling, Acting, Theater and many other exciting classes in the PERFORMING ARTS. Mrs. Juarez has taught at my studio in the past, my daughter took classes from her for many years. When my daughter took classes from her, it was with Mrs. Juarez's mentoring that helped her receive a scholarship to NY to dance and be on Starpower's "POWER PAK". Mrs. Juarez has been on the staff at Cornish College of the Arts for over 20 years. I highly respect and admire Christine Juarez and cannot think of a better person to pass my students to. Some of our current teachers may even teach at this new dance school.

I thank all of you for your years of loyalty, support and dedication. I have enjoyed the many years of working with the children of Seattle. All I ever wanted to do since I was in 5th grade is be a Dance Teacher. Thank you for allowing me to do that. I was blessed to be part of all your lives.

The show will go on as always. I hope to make it our best show ever. How can we go wrong when it's DISNEY!

Very truly yours-IN DANCE,

Miss Kathy

   Welcome to Kathy's Studio of Dance
Kathy's Studio of Dance was created years ago with one main objective: "Anyone should be able to dance". Although we strive to be a professional dance studio, we want anyone who wants to be a part of our studio regardless of age, weight, size, and experience. We help make little children into good, wholesome, confident, and productive adults. We teach teamwork and friendship. We consider the Studio a family, not just a place to dance.
