Pre-Registration August 9 & 10

Hello to all,

I hope this summer has been enjoyed and the students are ready to begin this next school year.

I will be at the Downtown studio Tuesday, August 9 & Wednesday, August 10 from 4:30-6:30 PM to take care of your registration and answer any questions before the studio opens for classes on Monday, August 15.

As many of you know, the first week of classes is crazy with new student registrations. I've been delightfully busy on the phones with new registrations. Please come visit me Downtown to ensure class placement as popular classes are beginning to fill!!

Hope to see many new and familiar faces,

Mariclare Miranda

Our summer classes begin Monday, June 13!
For those who have not registered, it's not too late.  Give us a call or, even better, come on in and take care of the registration when you get to the studio.

Voted Best of Columbia

The Conservatory was voted best Best Dance Studio or School in Columbia for 2013 by readers of the Free Times. They wrote:

The Columbia Conservatory of Dance, celebrating its 25th year of operation, offers classes from ballet to hip-hop and jazz. And classes are offered for young children to adults. William Starrett, Columbia City Ballet’s executive director, opened the school with Mariclare Miranda, a prima ballerina with City Ballet from 1997 to 2006. If one is pursuing a dance career, a school that feeds into a professional company is a good place to start.
