I am looking forward to seeing all my friends and neighbors at our annual Faircrest Heights neighborhood block party in a few short weeks. I am especially looking forward to the dance performance from the lovely young ladies of Seventh Dancers.
Seventh Dancers, located in the Evolve Dance studio over on Pico and Fairfax, is an amazing ballet dance program for young girls and boys ages 8-16yrs old. The students of Seventh Dancers have been practicing all summer for their first performance at the Faircrest Heights neighborhood block party.
The very talented Tahira Aliya is the visionary behind this amazing dance program. Miss Tahira, as the girls call her, has traveled the world to study her love for dance, with much of her training spent at the Le Petite Danseuse, Debbie Allen and The Dance Arts Academy. With 30 years experience, Miss Tahira took her passion to the next level by continuing her education at The National Academy of Sports Medicine studying injury prevention, personal training, and wellness coaching. This combination of experience, education, and dedication to the art of dance is what makes Seventh Dancers an extraordinary program here in Faircrest Heights.
Seventh Dancers is more than just a ballet class, it’s a lesson on sophistication, leadership, community pride, and teamwork. From the moment you step inside the studio you are greeted with warm smiles and friendly faces. It is clear that these young ladies take their lessons seriously and absolutely love being apart of this program.
Dance practice typically runs between 2 ½ – 3 hrs. In addition to their traditional lessons, the students enjoy exploring the local farmer’s markets, swimming at LACES, book club at the local library, and field trips on Fridays. Miss Tahira believes that education is very important and encourages the girls to strive for excellence in the classroom too. During the school year, students break up into study groups and work on their homework for a full hour. Miss Tahira’s assistant, Miss Danielle, is a teacher and helps tutor the students as needed.
Lessons are on going throughout the year and parents can enroll their children at anytime. For more information about Seventh Dances contact Miss Tahira at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to see and meet Miss Tahira and her talented students at the Faircrest Heights neighborhood block party Saturday, August 8th!
