Meet our Student of the Month, the lovely and talented Irina! 

In the spotlight this month is a young dancer who may be sweet and quiet by nature, but her dance moves speak volumes. Irina has been captivating us with her grace and dedication in our dance studio and with our dance company, and it’s high time we celebrate her achievements!

On the dance floor, Irina transforms into a mesmerizing performer. Our instructors have nothing but praise for Irina’s work ethic and her ability to absorb new choreography with ease.

We’re thrilled to have Irina as our Student of the Month, and we can’t wait to see how she continues to flourish as a dancer and a kind-hearted individual. Join us in congratulating her for this well-deserved recognition!

A few things to remember as we start another wonderful year of dance:

  • It takes many hours and man power to coordinate the schedule and class spaces are very limitedtherefore all fees & payments are NON-REFUNDABLE/NON-TRANSFERABLE.
  • Shoe Fitting Day is August 19! If you scheduled an appointment make sure you are on time. If you are late you will lose your spot. Payment is due at time of fitting. We will also have dancewear and select tights available for purchase at your appointment.

  • At Talent Factory Arts & Dance, we love welcoming new students into our studio family! We recognize that for some children though, letting go of their parent’s hand and stepping into our studio can be a difficult moment. Please be patient as they acclimate to their new surroundings and dance friends. 
  • In an effort to minimize the amount of foot traffic through the studio, our lobby will remain closed to parents, siblings and guests at this time. We will have Talent Factory Staff stationed at the entrance to welcome your dancers to class.
  • Dancers will not be let into the studio until 5 minutes before their scheduled class time. No dancer drop offs from the street or curb are allowed. For the safety of your dancers parents must park, walk up to the door, and stay with your dancer until they are let in.
