Additional Information Below

I can’t tell you how excited we all are to be expanding to your wonderful neighborhood. This opportunity came about rather unexpectedly and I have been working hard to staff all of the classes we would like to offer. I' m happy to announce that I have found all of the teachers I need  and I am thrilled because they are all wonderful. I’m very picky and won’t settle for just ok teachers!  The revised and completed schedule is  posted.

Elizabeth Chayer Founder, Director American Dance Institute

If you do not see your desired Magnolia class offered at a time that works for you, please let us know. I will try my very best to accommodate as many of your requests as I can. So please don’t be shy in telling me what you’d like to see. Also, let me know if you would be interested in any kids classes from 8:15-9:15am before school begins. Starting the day oxygenating the brain greatly enhances school performance.

Ballet Classes For Adults in Magnolia: We are excited to offer some adult Ballet classes in the morning right after Blaine school drop off (Monday 9:45-11:15am), in the afternoon finishing up just before school Lawton pick up (Friday 12:15-1:45pm), and in the evening (Monday 7:30-9:00pm). Also adult beginning tap on Wednesday 7:30-8:30 and there will hopefully be a beginning adult hip-hop in the schedule soon. We also hope to secure another space before too long that is large enough to accommodate more adult classes. Please let us know your interest level for adult classes to aid in our planning.

HELP WANTED: I am looking for 2 part time janitors for the Magnolia facility, each to come in 3-4 days a week to steam clean and sanitize dance floors and tidy up all common areas. Probably just about an 1 ½ hours a day. If interested, please contact Mary at [email protected]

STUDENT & PARENT HELP NEEDED TO SPREAD THE WORD: This Magnolia opportunity came about rather unexpectedly so we have not had a lot of lead time to promote our new location. Here’s how you can help: Please like our Facebook page and let your Friends and contacts know on FB, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram and SnapChat that we are opening a new studio in Magnolia!
