The BDSOPA Beat: February 2022

Updated: Feb 8, 2022

This month, we're showing the performing arts some major love.

Read on for news and exciting program updates!

BDSOPA Birthdays!

Join us in wishing these awesome dancers a happy birthday:

  • Melanie B.

  • Katie H.

  • Grace L.

  • Joyce Y.

  • Eloise Z.


To help prepare for our move, we're having a Shoe and Apparel sale on Saturday, February 12th, from 12:30pm-2pm!

Our goal is to clear out our stock before we move, so our shoes and apparel will be steeply discounted. If your dancer is growing and you think you'll need the next size up in shoes or leotard, we highly recommend you stop by and take a look at our inventory.

(We may even have a costume or two on sale--great for Halloween!)

Sales will be first-come, first-serve, so stop by on Saturday, February 12th, at 12:30pm to ensure you get the size you need. See you at the sale!
