The Mission of the Encore Boosters is to reach out to surrounding communities to gain exposure for Encore which will lead young people to the opportunities that dancing has for them such as gaining self-esteem, positive role models, the ability to perform in theater-style productions and much more. It is the desire of the Boosters and Encore to expose young people to the art of dance and take dancers as far as they want to go. Boosters will spearhead fundraisers in order to off-set costs of the theater costs, props, costuming, back drops and many other things related to the opportunity our Encore dancers will have with the professional productions offered through Encore.
Lastly, Boosters are proud to support Encore's additional learning opportunities through additional master classes, workshops and future student of the month initiatives. We feel that all children/young people should have the opportunity to be exposed in a positive way, to the role that the art of dance can have in their lives.
EDC Boosters Testimonials
“My journey with Encore started more than 30 years ago when I myself was a student. I remember vividly how much love and encouragement was given by Bonnie and her amazingly talented team and how being there made me feel like I was home. Fast forward through 30+ years of summer recital productions and 10 years of Nutcracker Ballet performances and have found our way back to our Encore family as my daughter travels her own dance path. I could not be more grateful that she too has the privilege of learning from the most incredibly inspiring and talented group of artists in the dance world. Encore is more than just my child's dance studio, it is the place where she has built her confidence, discovered courage, found grace, and learned that all dreams are possible through hard-work and determination. Whether you are looking for a studio simply for a fun extracurricular activity or are planning to pursue a passion through a career in the various arts of dance there truly is....no place like Encore!”
“My daughter, Rachel, has been dancing at Encore since 2011. During her years at Encore, she has grown tremendously as a dancer, not only in technique, but also in her confidence as a performer. The teachers at Encore are highly qualified and talented, and as a result, I have seen my daughter's skills flourish. Bonnie's passion for dance and performing inspires the dancers to hone their craft and excel. Encore Dance Centre is an unique studio because it truly feels like an extended family. It is a studio where lifelong friendships are being made, and dancers are encouraged and challenged to reach their fullest potential. I feel blessed to have my daughter learn the art of dance at Encore Dance Centre.”
“We enrolled our girls at Encore shortly after seeing our three nieces perform in one of Encores’ annual recitals. We were taken by the attention to detail in the show but more so by the relationships we saw between the dancers and their instructors. Having been here now for ten years, this is the best decision we could have made. With a strong focus on technique and some of the best instructors/choreographers LA has to offer, my girls are establishing a great foundation in their craft. The supportive and encouraging atmosphere with both the staff and those who attend has and continues to nurture and challenge them to become the best dancers they can be. Bonnie pulls out all the stops for the annual Nutcracker and June recitals that gives every child in the studio an opportunity to shine. The time and effort she (and her entire family and staff) put in to each one of her shows exemplifies just how much she loves the kids and is exactly why she's been in business for 30 years. We adore being a part of the Encore family!”
“My daughter has been dancing at Encore for nine years. I am so grateful that we found our way to Encore. Through the years I have become more and more impressed with all aspects of the studio, from the office staff to the dance teachers and director. The staff is dedicated, creative and talented. The recitals are top-notch productions, with countless hours spent working on dance routines, music, costuming and props. Encore recitals are not your ordinary dance recital, it’s more like a Broadway show. Each year my family and I are even more impressed. It has been wonderful watching my daughter and her friends grow up at the studio. They have received excellent instruction and have developed life long friendships along the way.”
“Jen has been an Encore family member since she was a child and danced in Encore's first dance recital. Her daughter Kennedy has been at the studio since she was a tiny tot. Both Jen and Kennedy took combo class with Mrs. Bonnie. Jen has an appreciation for dance and enjoys watching kids develop a love for the art whether recreationally or passionately.”
“We've been part of the Encore Family for just about 12+ years! We have three girls, all of which began dancing with "Miss Bonnie", that year after year continue to thrive at the studio. Daily the girls are challenged physically, are encouraged, build confidence in their abilities and enjoy friendships. Our girls not only dance at Encore because of the technical training and inspired creative vision, but for the warm family atmosphere that provides a safe place for them feel safe and grow!”
