Garri Dance Studio implements California State Dance Standards at Stevenson Elementary School

Seven weeks down and three to go till Stevenson Students take stage performing for friends and family in a "Winter Wonderland" themed show. Garri Dance Studio provides a fun ten week program to all Stevenson Students in Burbank every year including all five California State Dance Standards. Megan Baade teaches grades K-5 all about creative expression, artistic perception, historical and cultural dance, aesthetic valueing and connections and applications of dance. The students have learned how to relate dance to everything they do in life, working as a team with their classmates, using the strength and flexibility required in dance to stay strong and healthy, problem solving and more. Adding dance into the cirriculum at Stevenson has inspired many students to further their dance education, some kids have even told us they would like to incporporate dance into their careers when they grow up! Keep up the good work Stevenson Pirates and break a leg at your peformance on December 10th!

Garri Dance Studio joins the Burbank Town Center!

Stop by and visit us at our cool new kiosk at the Burbank Town Center at 201 W. Magnolia Blvd in Burbank. We are located right outside of Old Navy on the bottom level of the Mall. Our kiosk features our very own Garri Dancers and helps to raise awareness about all the wonderful programs we have to offer at the studio! You can pick up information, view our video staring some awesome dancers and chat with our studio expert to learn more about why we have been voted Best Dance School in Burbank for the last three consecutive years. We can't wait to meet some new dance friends at the Burbank Mall!

Safety First! Garri Dance Staff becomes CPR Certified!

Safety first is our motto at GDS! On October 25th American CPR visited Garri Dance Studio and gave us the skills we need to save lives. We have never had the need to perform CPR on a student but it is never to early to learn how. Staff members were trained to do infant, child and adult CPR since we do have a large number of dance and music students ranging in age from toddlers through adults. We hope we never have a need to act on an emergency situation but in the event we do, we feel great knowing we can help! Happy Dancin'!
