In the New Year, we want to take time to recognize all the wonderful people that make this studio possible. We have an amazing staff with qualifications out of the roof… but they are more than just dancers and educators. So for the next couple of weeks, we will be getting to know the humans behind the teacher, and their little fun facts. 

This week we are diving into the little details of Miss Raquel!

There are many colors in the rainbow, but the one that has caught Miss Raquel’s eye is Burgundy! 🍇 A unique color that most people look over, but we see why she loves it. This color makes us think of all things cozy🧣nd who doesn’t love that?!

When it comes to food Miss Raquel will never turn down the chance to enjoy a chocolate chip cookie🍪. The best time to enjoy this savory treat is truly anytime your sweet tooth has a crazing🦷 It pairs well with any season. Especially the chilly winter nights. Warm & sweet! Just like Miss Raquel. 

Jack Johnson has a way with words and melodies that can fill you with comfort. If you haven’t listened to him we highly recommend you do the next time you get in your 🚗 But the song Miss Raquel loves the most from Jack Johnson is “Together”🫂 

Miss Raquel may love the song ‘Together’, but her favorite Artist of all time is THE KILLERS! And we can’t argue with that choice. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t know their song ‘Mr. Brightside’ ☀️ Their music stands the test of time, and can always get you up dancing and singing along 🎤

We are product of all our memories. They make up who we are today. And Miss Raquel wouldn’t be the same without her favorite memory💕. She looks back fondly on spending summers in South Padre with all her cousins.

Miss Raquel is one amazing teacher, but she loves many things outside of dance. When she isn’t leading the next generation of movers to success she loves to cook up delicious meals. 🍲 YUM. When it’s time to hunker down and relax she loves to crack open a good book📚.  Last and certainly not least Miss Raquel loved to walk on the beach at sunset 🌅 

We have many possessions throughout life. Some are memories or a special gift given to us by someone we love. A lot of us cherish our pets, and so does Miss Raquel. She would say say her dog 🐶 Cody is her most prized possession. There is nothing quite like the love from a furry friend as loyal as a dog!❤️

This week we are diving into the little details of Miss Bea!

When it comes to color Miss Bea couldn’t pick just one! Her heart belongs not to one, but to two. Some of the prettiest things are the color pink. So of course this is one that as stole her heart💕. When it comes to the color gold it represents generosity and compassion. One of the many reason it’s perfect color for our honey Bea🐝.

Fun fact about Miss Bea she is from Brazil 🇧🇷. So when it comes to food she can’t help but find the food from home to be her favorite. Especially their meat! But she also can never turn down sushi 🍣, or a night in with pizza 🍕! 

Music is our language of love  ❤️ , and with there being soo much good music it truly is hard to pick one favorite song 🎵 . And our teacher of the week couldn’t agree with us more. So here are a few of the ones that have inspired Miss Bea: ‘The Climb’ Hannah Montana LOL 😂, ‘Someone’s Watching Over Me’ Hilary Duff, and ‘You Will Be Found’ From Dear Evan Hansen. 

Just like how she feels about color and song she simply cannot pick one favorite artist. When it comes to favorites Miss Bea has 3️⃣! They all share something in common..they top the charts in pop music. We can’t blame her for her taste in music. I think we all love a little Justin Bieber and Harry Styles moment in our days☀️. Plus there is something about the nostalgia of the Jonas Brothers that make them extra good👍🏼.

We are a sum of our memories. They make us who we are! The ones Miss Bea cherishes the most are the trips she takes every year with her family🏠 for the holidays. She will never turn down the chance to get everyone together and see somewhere 🆕.

Outside of the studio our teacher lead great lives, have many hobbies, and love to fill their time with fun. When Miss Bea isn’t here with us spreading the love of dance she likes to spend the day at a theme park🎢! As we know she loves music 🎶 and what better way for her to enjoy music than at live concerts. With all that adventure and fun she also loves to keep it calm and see a good movie while loading up on snacks🍿.

Possessions come in many different forms. We all have different things we hold near and dear to us🫂. What is super special to Miss Bea is her family. She would call them her most prized possession🎁. Which we sure can relate on. There is nothing more special than a strong and loving family unit. 

As always our teachers are full of knowledge and experience🧠. They bring so much to the table that travels far beyond the ability to teach dance🩰. When it comes to advice we have some of the best sitting within our teaching staff. What Miss Bea would like to pass onto her students is “Be patient, be in the moment, don’t give up.” 💪🏼

This week we are diving into the little details of Miss Kris!

The sky is blue, the ocean is blue🌊, and the color that caught the eye of Miss Kris is blue! There are many things to like about blue. Some would say it’s a calming color🧘‍♀️. One that soothes the soul when you feel your mind becoming chaotic. Makes sense as to why this teachers loves it so.

Can you really argue when someone tells you a meal involving noodles is their favorite?🍜We can’t. A noodle can be done in so many variations.. What’s not to love? You can have it however your heart desire. And Miss Kris agrees! Hand her some Japanese Noodles, and she will be grinning ear to ear. 😊

You get in your car, and turn on music🚗. We all have a go to song we love to start our day with. Or listen to when we are sad. For Miss Kris you can catch her brightening up her days with the song “Gloria!” By Laura Branigan🎵

There are many artist out there.🎤 With a variety of styles and sounds to bring joy to each persons life by song. But none of them compare to Sammy Rae & The Friends for Miss Kris. If you haven’t had the chance to check out their unique and authentic sound we HIGHLY recommend you take a listen. ✔️

Our childhood👶 is what helps make up the person you grow up to be. We are a combination of our experiences and memories. Many of which we hope to be amazing ones. Miss Kris looks back fondly on making up dances and plays 🎭with her best friends! 

Our teachers may be amazing educators and dancers, but they are so much more than that. They live a whole life beyond these studio walls. When Miss Kris isn’t dancing her heart out or acting up a storm she loves being outside. You can catch her backpacking through forests, and stopping to camp in beautiful sights🏕. Another love she’s carried with her is the adrenaline rush she gets anytime she goes snowboarding. But don’t you worry Miss Kris knows how to take a breather and relax with a brain teasing puzzle 🧩 . She is a woman of many interests, and she is a better teacher for it. 

Prized possession come in many shapes and forms. For Miss Kris what she holds closest to her heart is her cat. 🐈A feline friend can make the worst days feel better. With a couple snuggles from a furry fella how could anyone be upset for too long. 💕

Our teachers here at Reach For the Barres are fountains of knowledge⛲️. They are people who are full of amazing advice. What Miss Kris would like to pass on to the students here is, “Enjoy every moment; even the tougher ones. They will lead you to the other side of the rainbow🌈 . Always always always; trust yourself & whatever comes your way!”

This week we are diving into the little details of Miss Ruby! 

There are many colors in the rainbow, but the one that has caught Miss Ruby’s eye is PINK!🌸 Who doesn’t appreciate a little pink every once in a while? Have you ever had the Starbucks pink drink? That’s reason enough to enjoy the color!

When it comes to food Miss Ruby will never turn down watermelon 🍉 The best time to enjoy this flavor-filled fruit is SUMMER! Anything that pairs well with the summertime heat is a win in our book. 

Florence + The Machine has plenty of good music, but when it comes to favorites the song that brightens Miss Ruby’s day is ‘Dog Days Are Over’🐶. Next time you’re feeling a little gloom and doom pop on that song and we promise those spirits will be lifted! 

Miss Ruby may love the song ‘Dog Days Are Over’, but her favorite Artist of all time is RIHANNA! And we can’t argue with that choice. She has music spanning over 2 decades that can make you cry, dance your heart out, and make you embrace the strength behind being a woman! 👗

She has done a lot in her life, but there is nothing like a childhood memory that sticks with you forever. When Miss Ruby was a little girl she started taking dance class🩰, and that remained her favorite memory. It gave her friends, confidence, and a skill set that she will have forever. Dance provides soo much for a young person, and we believe every child should dance at some point in their life. 

Even though everyone here is an amazing dancer our teachers are much more than that. Outside of the studio, Miss Ruby loves to travel, go to the beach, and spend time with her friends. But of course, she also loves to dance.

These are just a few of the things that make Miss Ruby so special!
