2008-2018: Celebrating a Decade of Dance

Join the Fun

As I prepare for this very special recital weekend, I am truly not sure where the last ten years have gone. It seems like it was just a short time ago that my husband and I moved to Platte City and opened Beatniks! We had been married for three months and before we knew it we had a building, two businesses, and some big dreams! And it was work! The first few years I taught almost every class, took home paperwork each night, planned recitals and events, and cleaned the studio from top to bottom every weekend. Beatniks’ first dance recital ‘A Night At The Oscars’ was held in this very auditorium almost ten years ago to the day. We had one performance with 68 dancers, two instructors, and five volunteers. The details of that weekend are long forgotten, but the joy and excitement of that first recital will always be in my heart. This weekend we have three performances, 142 dancers, seven staff members, and over a dozen volunteers! It has been such a joy for me to watch our studio grow each year. Ten years later, Beatniks Remix is a tribute to the great recitals of our past! Each song tonight is from one of our past nine recitals, re-choreographed, and re-costumed. We are so excited to be sharing a piece of our past with you! I am so grateful for every moment of our last ten years together, and I look forward to many, many more!
