Staff Reports

All About Dance is all settled into its new facility in the old Bently Nevada building on the corner of Highway 395 and Buckeye Road at 1617 Water Street in Minden.

“Bently was so accommodating to all of our needs and wishes. They made this a smooth, fun experience,” said Cathy Nelson and Diana Allredge, owners of All About Dance.

They said they give Bently Nevada Corp. a great big thank you for all their hard work and cooperation in making this possible, specifically, Don Bently, Gary Mikulich and Randy Whitmore and his crew.

“We still have two of the biggest dance floors in one facility in Nevada. In addition, we have doubled the number of viewing windows for our parents and guardians, have increased the size of our restroom facilities by 600 percent, have doubled the size of our dressing room facilities and still have the safest, most professional dance floors, with the best staff in all of Northern Nevada,” Nelson said.

“Our students are more excited than ever about their classes and instructors. That’s the best part of it all!” said Alldredge.

They welcome all to come in for a tour of the new facility and to check out classes while in session.

“The students love it when people are watching. They wouldn’t be dancing if they didn’t. The instructors love it, as well, ’cause the students try harder when people are watching them.” said Alldredge.

“After more than 6 years of owning our own studio and more than 50 years collectively of dance experience, we’ve developed a schedule of classes and syllabus for advancement that is unsurpassed,” Nelson said.

All About Dance’s “Christmas in October” will be held Saturday, Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at All About Dance. Christmas in October will be a fun-filled, early- bird shopping event. Several vendors will be there on site, including Princess House, Longaberger Baskets, Creative Memories, Home Interiors, Avon, Tupperware, Silverwear Jewelry and more.

Approximately 30 dancers will go to Disneyland in California to represent our state in the fine arts at Disney and Universal Studios. The students will have an opportunity to attend a Disney institutional workshop that consists of a mock audition and tips from one of Disney’s professional entertainers on how to write and develop a good resume, both for college and career, what classes to take in anticipation of a career in the fine arts and receive recommendations on good colleges for the performing arts.
