Join Sunflower State Dance and Pinot's Palette- Lawrence For Kid's Painting Parties!
My goal this year as director of Sunflower State Dance is to create more opportunities for area children to take part in making art. Whether that be through participating in a full scale ballet production such as our production of Clara and the Land of Sweets: A Nutcracker Story, taking dance classes, through music, or painting. Together with Pinot's Palette-Lawrence, we will be putting on our first ever kid's painting party right here at Sunflower State Dance! We will also be celebrating fall and Halloween with these fun and festive paintings that instructors from Pinot's Palette will guide everyone through to create their very own masterpiece to take home!
In so many sports and extra curricular activities, coaches and instructors are not educated at the college level or certified in whatever they are teaching.

Education is extremely important and just as importantly is continuing education and training to always be on top of the game.
Summer is an important time of year for dancers and teachers in developing their art. Throughout the country countless numbers of programs, conventions, and intensive take place to help performing artists grow. This year all of our instructors at Sunflower State Dance have or are participating in programs to continue their dance education. Check out what we have been up to
