New! New! New!

So much change is happening at Cannon Falls School of Dance, all except the desire to provide quality dance instruction in the Cannon Falls area. That is and will always remain the same!

Things that have changed:

We sadly said goodbye to our instructor Madame Ashley. We love her and wish her well in her next step in life.

Two new people joined the board, April Muehring and Jackie Ohmann.

Where will the studio be? We are hoping back at the community center but as Covid rules are still in place, we won’t know til closer to fall when we aim to start up.
