The Linda Vega Dance Studio

Thank you for expressing interest in joining the Linda Vega Dance Studio. It is going to be an exciting year! Fiesta 2014 was a fantastic year for our studio. Every year gets better, and I am confident that Fiesta 2015 will be even more successful!! First, I would like to tell you a little about who we are.

The Studio is entering its twenty-eight season and we are very proud to have produced thirtytwo Spirits and Junior Spirits. We have an excellent staff of teachers, including Sabrina Ibarra, Cari Hekhuis, and many special guest teachers throughout the season. These teachers are superb professional dancers and are specially trained to teach the unique style, technique and expression for which our studio is known.

Our goal, as a studio, is to teach the beautiful art form of Flamenco and other regional and classical dances of Spain. We work hard all year, focusing on technique, style and choreography. At Fiesta time, the emphasis is on having fun! It is important to me, as Artistic Director, that all students really enjoy performing. The audience feels their joy! We encourage students to participate throughout the year as well as at Fiesta time. Community service is an important aspect of our studio; we perform at retirement homes, convalescent homes, charity functions, schools, as well as at city fairs and festivals. Students develop self-confidence as they hone their skills. Flamenco dance and music is a very expressive art form; it is wonderful to see hidden talents emerge as students learn more and more. They are encouraged to show kindness and respect toward one another, and are taught to appreciate each other’s hard work. As a member of the Linda Vega Dance Studio, students are also strongly encouraged to extend these courtesies to the other dance studios in Santa Barbara.

Enclosed you will find a preliminary class schedule, tuition rates and a registration form. We will begin our fall schedule on Monday, September 15. Registration will take place at the studio on Saturday, August 24 from 10:00AM to 2:00 PM. You may register at that time or mail the registration form directly to the studio.

The fee for registration during the months of September and October is $25.00; November and December $50.00; and thereafter it is $75.00. Early registration is advised, as placement in the studio is limited. Please include the tuition fees with your payment.
 
Students should arrive to the class most appropriate for their age and level of experience. If you are unsure which class to attend, please call or e-mail me. My desire is that every student be in a group that will be challenging yet not frustrating. During the first month or so, I will assess new students and place them in the class that most benefits his or her level of experience.
 
For the very young students, I suggest using a child’s dress shoe, or some shoe with a small heel. You can purchase these inexpensively at Payless, etc. and purchase the shoes we will be using for Fiesta later on. All female students should wear a skirt that can be can picked up and moved around with both hands. Please have hair tied back in a ponytail, braid or bun. Boys can wear pants or shorts, a T-shirt, and hard-soled shoes.
 
I am very excited about our upcoming year, and look forward to welcoming you into the “Vega Family”! If you have questions, or would like to discuss anything with me, please feel free to call me at the studio: 963-0073,
or e-mail me at: vegaflamenco@gmail.com. I look forward to meeting you very soon!
 
With Warmest Regards,
LINDA VEGA, owner/director
