Fall Fun at Bricks

Have you been joining in on the fall fun at Bricks Studio? We saw some pretty pink outfits during Pink Week, and some frightfully fun Halloween costumes as we raised money for the Juvenile Diabetes Walk for a Cure. The studio also was busy with a Tap Master Class from Jenefer Miller, Hip Hop Master classes from H2M, and the Monster Mash Halloween Bash for our younger students.

The Bricks Company dancers have also had a fall in and out of the studio. The dancers recently performed at the Herberger Theater Festival and the Arizona State Fair in October, and started November strong by dancing at the Juvenile Diabetes Walk for a Cure.

Below are some photos from our recent events, but you can see more on Facebook.

Have you met Miss Beth?

For the last 27 years Miss Beth has trained and taught at a variety of dance studios across the country. She began her training in northern Colorado in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and lyrical. For 7 years, Beth was the Artistic Director of The Academy of Performing Arts in Prescott, Arizona. In December of 2011, Beth made the to move to the valley and began her career in the Phoenix area Beth has taught and choreographed for many organizations in both Colorado and Arizona including high school/college cheer and pom teams, after school dance programs, charter schools, and a variety of musical casts. Her students have gone on to dance in college dance departments all over the country, private performing arts high schools, and on many professional dance teams (including the Denver Nuggets). Throughout Beth’s dancing career, she has consistently sought out training of her own travelling to workshops, master classes, and conventions in many cities including Phoenix, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and Las Vegas.

Miss Beth currently teaches ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop at Bricks Studio, and choreographs for the Bricks Company.

We recently interviewed Miss Beth to learn a little more about her that you might not know.

Question: What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

My Favorite ice cream flavor in mint chocolate chip.

Question: What is your favorite style of dance and why?

My favorite dance style changes all the time but right now I love ballet and contemporary. They are both so beautiful and challenging.

Question: If you weren’t dancing, what would you do?

If I am not dancing I love spending time outdoors hiking, biking, and running... I would also take more yoga classes.

Question: Who is your favorite dancer and why?

My favorite dancer is... Good ole Janet Jackson.  Who wouldn't love her? She was so intricate, smooth, and exciting to watch.  I still like YouTubing her old videos.  Those were my inspiration as a young girl.  

Question: If you could dance anywhere for a day where would it be?

If I could dance anywhere for a day it would be in a show choreographed by Mia Michaels. Her choreography is so challenging both mentally, emotionally, and physically.  Plus they always have fantastic costumes!

We also asked Miss Beth for her playlist picks and here they are:

5 weeks until the BIG SHOW!!!!

Oh man! We are getting excited! Nows the time to give it all you've got! Parents and students: Please make sure we are in class every week with all the necessary tool for success (proper shoes, proper attire, hair away from the face, ect. ect.) 'Cleaning' is a term used by many choreographers when the dance number is complete but needs a few tweeks to make it perfect. Please be sure you are in class for 'cleaning', as your spots and minor moves might change. Costumes are arriving everyday and will be given out closer to dress rehearsal.

Important Dates:
Dress Rehearsal & Pictures: Monday, May 14th & Wednesday, May 16th 4pm-8pm (ask the front desk what time your class is supposed to be there)


Friday, May 18th at 6pm
