After receiving a business award in 2018 from the Kansas Department of Commerce we were contacted by Dance Teacher magazine to be featured in their upcoming edition of their magazine. The article we asked to contribute to was all around community engagement. Three different studios and studio owners, including Sunflower State Dance and Miss Rachel, were featured and all studios are of varying sizes from 500 to 75 students.
"Every year, Business Appreciation Month gives us a chance to recognize businesses and entrepreneurs for their leadership which keeps our state and local economies strong. Thanks to businesses like your, Kansas continues to be a land of opportunity for both businesses and our citizens. For that, we cannot thank you enough." - Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D.
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!
Sunflower State Dance was featured in the Discover Eudora summer/fall 2016 magazine! Community is a huge part of why we teach dance to area youth. Check out this article that features dancers from Sunflower State Dance.
