RECITAL INFORMATION

 

For more than 25 years, Le Rose Dance Academy has provided students with an exciting performance experience through its annual June recital. Our recital offers students a professionally directed performance that allows them to present to their families and friends the result of a year's hard work, dedication, and progress.

A big part of dance training is learning through performance. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children's success in non-dance activities. The performance experience help build self-esteem and self confident, and it can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong interview skills for future college or job opportunities. The rehearsal process is also a tremendous learning experience as it helps the children develop retention skills. By working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best results.

STAYING INFORMED

We work hard to make the dance experience organized and fun. Keeping you informed is one of our primary goals. Please read all newsletters and other studio information. Newsletters and important updates are sent to the email address that you provided on your registration form. Information can also be found on our website, app, and through emails sent to you.

Here at Le Rose Dance Academy the safety of our students, families, and staff is our top priority. That's why we have implemented policies and a contingency plan regarding COVID-19.

DRESS REHEARSAL

Le Rose Dance Academy was established in the Fall of 1995. Amanda Purlee Nixon purchased the studio from her lifelong dance teacher, Verna Purdy Cross. Verna owned her studio, Verna's School of Dance, for 30+ years. She started her studio in an upstairs room of her home on Jefferson Street. At the age of 3 years, Amanda took her first tap class from Verna in that very room. Throughout the years Verna's business grew and she moved her studio to a remolded auto garage on Hamilton Avenue and changed the name to Dance Institute. Verna was the only studio in the Franklin area teaching Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Hula, Belly Dancing, and Floor Gymnastics to dancers age 3 - Adult. Verna's choreography won her numerous awards regionally and nationally. 

 

Verna's studio continued to grow, and she moved her studio to downtown Franklin upstairs in the Historic Wigwam Mineola Tribe building (currently holds a candy shop, candle, and studio apartments). At this location, she obtained over 6,000sq feet and had a full-size gymnastics facility and three dance rooms. By this time Amanda was ready to be a student-teacher alongside Verna. She danced 4 nights a week and all day on Saturdays. Amanda continued to train at master classes around the state of Indiana, as well as compete and attend conventions. At the age of 16, she taught her very own class and has not stopped since then! Verna continued to teach and win several honors and awards. 

 

When the time came Verna sold the studio to Amanda and taught for her for 10 years. Amanda stayed in this location for 3 years. She changed the name to Le Rose Dance Academy and then moved to a new building on Commerce Drive in 1998. Amanda continues to teach dancers age 2 - Adult and has followed Verna's footsteps in winning several choreography, regional and national awards.
