NEWSIES WORKSHOP

DE was fortunate to have two amazing actors from Broadway's Newsies come and do a dance and vocal workshop while they were in town performing at Proctor's Theater.

Michael Ryan and Dan DeLuca filled the day with dance from the Broadway musical Newsies and listened to talented vocalists, along with giving them a great and informative talk. It was great to see the energy and excitement. The students loved the workshop.

DE AT BALLSTON SPA'S HOLIDAY PARADE

We had a great time marching in the Ballston Spa holiday parade on December 2, 2016!

This hometown parade brings out many people to share in the kickoff to the holiday season. Our dancers had a blast as they sang songs and handed out candy canes and lollipops to watching children.

It's always a great community event ending with Santa lighting the village tree!
