From Camps to Company at Joel Hall Dance Center


I came up dancing in Wisconsin. Dance class gave me a sense of purpose, a clarity of thought, physical awareness, endurance and flexibility. The dance studio also gave me a second home. Even better, the dance company gave me another family to lean on. I know I wouldn’t be the Miss Lori I am without my dance experience. That’s why I was so excited when my eldest daughter decided to try a dance camp this Summer. It was a very last minute decision. We paid online just two days before it started and then she dove feet first into the deep end of the experience at Joel Hall Dance Center. I’ve always known the name Joel Hall, but had never visited their North Clark studio before my daughters’ first day of camp. She spent 5, four and a half hour days sweating, stretching, building and learning. Every afternoon she came out of class red faced and physically drained, but despite that she went back every morning. Her final performance demonstrated that in just one week she had transformed herself into company potential. “What?”, you say.



“What’s this you are saying about a company?” Well, Joel hall Dance Center has a student dance company in addition to their Trainee and Professional companies. In fact they are holding auditions for their companies on Sunday, August 11, 2013. They are looking for dancers with drive to achieve their dreams.
