We deeply understand how unbelievably challenging this time is for everyone in regard to all aspects of your lives.
We here at FOCUS are committed to bringing some consistency back to the dancers by offering Virtual lessons and the opportunity to reconnect the dancers with their teachers and friends, offer some structure to their days, and enjoy the fun of dance and fitness. With these virtual classes, we will be able to help keep our teachers doing what they love most, our doors open to the community through virtual steaming, and our dancers working on their concert dances while improving their skills and having fun. Below you will find the instructions to attend your regularly scheduled class on the same day and time you currently have been attending, but now from the safety of your own home.
We appreciate everyone’s patience in the first couple of weeks while we fine-tune any issues that might arise since this is uncharted territory for us all. We will have Tech standing by via phone to assist anyone who has questions or needs any assistance. We are also reaching out to the entire dance community with some additional free instructive dance videos on our social media sites from some of our popular teachers for those who are not in a position to reconnect with their FOCUS teacher(s), classmates and the curriculum they are training in.
We are committed to doing all we can to help “flatten the curve” while still bringing some normalcy to all our amazing FOCUS Families. Also, we want to send a heartfelt thank you for all the incredible outpouring of support we have received from our clients and the concern for our recovery from this challenge.

us consider Thanksgiving to be the quintessentially American holiday. It marks
the beginning of our “holiday season,” a period that lasts into winter holidays
and through New Year’s Day. I
love this season!
Especially it’s so appropriate as we celebrate our Veterans on November 11 for the sacrifice they’ve made to keep us protected, I feel being thankful and expressing my gratitude is such an important part of being happy in life. Finding even a small way to thank others for their generosity, friendships, support or even reminding ourselves just how much we have to be thankful for can be rewarding year-round.
I hope as you get busy,
preparing for your holiday festivities and gatherings, you can find some time
to reflect and be thankful for all the blessings we have around us. It can be
so easy to take things for granted, let’s make sure our loved ones know how
much we appreciate them this season!

With a positive attitude, we experience pleasant and happy feelings. This brings brightness to the eyes, more energy, and happiness. Our whole being broadcasts goodwill, happiness, and success. Even our health is affected in a beneficial way. We walk tall, our voice is more powerful, and our body language shows the way we feel.
Positive thinking is contagious! We affect and are affected by the people we meet, in one way or another. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level, through words, thoughts and feelings, and through body language.
it any wonder that we want to be around positive people, and prefer to avoid
negative ones? Stay positive and spread good vibes, it’s good for the soul…
We can’t wait for you to come drop-in, and see
what all the excitement is about!

Preparations are in the works, for the Prestigious FOCUS Concert Series “Honors Performance”
Dancers get ready to take a much-deserved Bow!
Season 2019-2020 FOCUS Concert Series Honors Performance will be held at the Irvine Barclay theatre June 15 through June 20, 2020, and presents all FOCUS dancers who completed their season of training! You will witness all the tenacity and hard work these performers put in through the season to earn the honor and prestige of participating in this outstanding Concert Series. Along with the sheer entertainment of our students’ performance, they will showcase their growing confidence, strong and poised athleticism, perseverance, unique individuality and appreciation for teamwork FOCUS instill in them.
It takes quite the courage to walk out and just stand in front of an audience. It takes even more courage and confidence to do that and perform! Our students at FOCUS do just that, all the while expressing appropriate emotions, executing intricate moves, remembering all the choreography, counting steps, stretching ever so much for the effect, and making it look effortless and having fun doing it.
Please join us and celebrate their accomplishments! The performers will be praised and honored and receive a Certificate of Participation for their hard work throughout the season.
We look forward to having you join us as they take their bow.

Remember to drink your water! Whether it’s hot out, just
done with your dance rehearsal or it’s fall, your body depends on water to
survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work
properly. Your body uses water to maintain its temperature, remove waste, and
lubricate your joints. Water is needed for overall good health.
You should drink water every day because water is best
for staying hydrated. Most people have been told they should drink 6 to 8,
8-ounce glasses of water each day. That is a reasonable goal. However,
different people need different amounts of water to stay hydrated. Most healthy
people can stay well hydrated by drinking water and other fluids whenever they
feel thirsty. As a dancer and athlete, you may need more water.
Remember to keep that water bottle full and close!
