Congratulations Studio West Graduating Seniors!

As we come to the end our school year, we regretfully have to send off our graduating seniors to their post high school adventures. Although we were not able to hold our Spring Showcase, we have created the end-of-year senior video to honor our Performance Division senior graduates!

Click HERE to see the video!

We will also host a senior parade from 1:00 to 1:30 pm on May 31.  Drive by and honk as the teachers hold up congratulation and senior picture signs on Black Lake Boulevard in front of the studio (all appropriately social-distanced, of course). It has been a pleasure to watch these young individuals grow into the people and dancers they are today. We will miss watching these artists light up our stage. Merde and congratulations!
