Calling all Prince and Princesses, Ages 4-7!

Have your child be a ballet dancer for a week! Young dancers begin with the magic of a dance class and explore a different ballet each day: Nutcracker, Peter Pan, Coppelia and Firebird. Your dancer will be enchanted by dance, drama and crafts! Closing this fun and festive week will be a royal celebration and performance. Please note, this workshop will be held in-studio, but precautionary measures will be taken due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Click HERE for more information!

Studio West and The Beat Box’s Plans Due to COVID-19

Thurston County is now in Phase 3.  This means we can hold small in-studio classes of 1-14 dancers (50% of our normal studio capacity).  Our Summer Session 2020 will follow Washington State’s Phase 3 Safe Start guidance and all families must agree to follow this guidance to be in-studio.  Copies of Studio West’s specific Phase 3 requirements are available via email or on paper right inside the front door of our main building.  For full details regarding the cancellation of our 2019-2020 session, please read our letter to our families and staff by clicking HERE.  Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times and we hope you all continue to stay healthy.
