Anne Kramer Wins “Teacher of the Year” Award!
During this year’s Kids Artistic Revue Nationals Competition in Toledo, Ohio, Miss Anne (Dance Etc.’s owner and artistic director) received the "Teacher of the Year" award! This award is based on the total scores received by all performers at the competition. “It’s really all about the kids,” says Miss Anne. “but I don’t mind being appreciated for all the work I do, too!”
Miss Anne was also a judge for the KAR Nationals Competition in Las Vegas, Nevada. The schedule involved 48 hours total of judging throughout 7 days! One particular day was 8:00 am to 11:00 pm. “That’s a lot of dances,” says Miss Anne. “It’s not an easy job, and requires a lot of concentration. I take the job very seriously, because I know how important it is to the competitors. Judges need to be fair and consistent.” Anne has several years of judging experience, but this is her first Nationals, so it is very exciting to be invited!

They will be entering their 28th dance competition season this year, and hosts 69 regional events in over 35 states and three national finals! They were one of America's first established dance competitions and have quickly become one of America's largest and most widely recognized.
Anne Kramer Teaches School of Creative & Performing Arts
Miss Anne was invited to teach belly dancing at The School for Creative & Performing Arts (SCPA) Student’s Summer Program. SCPA is a K-12 Cincinnati Public School offering world class pre-professional arts training and advanced college preparatory academics. Approximately 1,370 students attend SCPA, which is housed in the new Erich Kunzel Center for Arts and Education in downtown Cincinnati. Artistic Departments include Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Technical Theater, Visual Arts, and Vocal Music.
Belly Dancing originally arose from various dancing styles from the Middle East and North Africa. Although it is termed “Belly Dancing”, all parts of the body are used with most of the focus on the hips. Most of the movements involve isolating these different parts of the body, so that one part of the body is moving while the rest are fairly stationary. “Belly dancing is its own art form,” Miss Anne adds, “it’s classy, feminine, beautiful and simply great for your abs. It’s also a great way to teach dancers to become more fluid in their movements.”
Dance Etc. also offers belly dancing classes for adults in the summer and fall!

Giselle tells the story of a young peasant girl seduced and betrayed by a nobleman. Having died of a broken heart, Giselle joins the ranks of the supernatural Wilis: women scorned before their wedding day and left to seek revenge for eternity. In the end, Giselle’s ghost tries to protect her lover from the vengeance of this group of evil female spirits. Since its premiere in 1841, Giselle has become one of the most popular ballets of all time and is considered ballet’s great tragedy. Support your instructors and watch Kaitlin.
