Creative Dance on Stage

 

“I’ve been to a few dance studio shows in the past, but have to honestly say that I haven’t seen one with such professional and enjoyable performances as you put on this past Friday! It didn’t feel like a dance school, it felt like a real show and we enjoyed every minute of it!”

Thank you CHC performers.

Donations are accepted in support of the Children Helping Children Perfomance Company, that it may continue to help children in need.

The Children Helping Children Organization (completely charitable organization 5013c) was established in October, 2001, in the aftermath of the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks that took the lives of two fathers and one grandfather of Dance Studio students. In our effort to contribute to the memory of those who were lost, Children Helping Children (CHC) was born. Our home base is at The Dance Studio of Park Slope. The performers come from our student base at The Dance Studio. All involved with this organization donate their time and 100% of all donations raised from each event go to the intended beneficiary.

Teacher, Owner/Director:

 Jennifer Kliegel    I wonder each year if I will have the same connection to the new students coming in . . .  and then they walk through the door and I fall in love all over again. What defines my life is teaching and I do love it. 2017 marks my 36th year at The Dance Studio. I’m grateful to be here and proud of the job that we all, collaboratively do, at The Dance Studio to make it one of a kind and simply the best!   From Jefferson City, Missouri. I didn’t start dancing as a child; it was later, in high school, where I was blessed to have some of the most influential people of my life as dance & theatre teachers. With academic and dance scholarships I headed off to Stephens College, MO. This is where my true training as a dancer began . . . It’s Never Too Late! Though my training includes all dance disciplines, I consider myself a jazz, tap, musical theatre baby, performing in and choreographing numerous musical productions – across the U.S. and abroad. I have choreographed for elementary, middle schools, high schools, colleges, community theatres, dance studios, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, National Touring Companies and Ireland’s Montfort Singers. I am very proud to be choreographer for Brooklyn’s MS 51′s Vocal Department’s performance chorus and Show Choir, right here in Park Slope! I have danced my way onto soap operas, commercials, “Saturday Night Live” and 1st company with “Dance Theatre Dayton”. All of my experiences have helped me when wearing the many hats of teacher, owner and director of this Studio. I walked through the doors of The Dance Studio in 1981, as a student. I immediately started teaching and became partner in 1989 – sole owner since 1998. My greatest joy in life comes from my family, my “kids in fur coats” Clancey (my boxer) & Delta Blue (my mini lab) and the smiles & hugs I get from your kids each day when I walk into the Studio.
