Hello Dance Vault Families,
Don't forget the Dance Vault is closed March 11th-15th in observance of spring break.
*For those in the Saturday Code 1 jazz/tap class at 10:45am-11:30am. This is a reminder that your class is observing spring break (no class) March 9th. You will resume class Saturday March 16th.*
Don't miss out and make up those classes!
This does not mean your dancer misses out on classes for Holidays. Your dancer is welcome to make up ahead of the holiday (the same month; You can not make up class in December for a holiday in March) or within 60 days after the Holiday during the 2018-2019 Falls/Spring session. Your dancer may make up a class for each class missed due to a holiday. The class does not have to be the same style of class either. We usually encourage dancers to make up into classes they have an interest in but never actually tried. We recommend something up beat or different like a jazz, hip hop or aerial silks class for instance! The make up class just has to be age and level appropriate. If you have any questions regarding age/level appropriate please ask us well in advance.
Give us a heads up!
All we ask is that you notify our office of the make up prior to your dancer running into class as she may not be on the class roll. If your dancer plans to make up into a hip hop class please contact us several days in advance to make sure there will be room in the class (our hip hop classes fill up on a regular basis).

Marcea Lane (April 4th):
Marcea’s dance career started at a very young age of four years old. Starting off in the small Iowa dance school, she received basic training enough to know that she wanted to be a professional dancer. With a stroke of good luck, her family moved to California. There she was crowned 1976 Miss Hemet (California), a role that forced her to acclimate quickly to a very public life. Marcea took dance classes at her local junior college, but her heart was also set on doing jazz. She planned a two-hour drive to Los Angeles to take classes at Joe Tremaine’s studio. Classes there were packed with over 75 people in each class. For over five years Marcea took class with Tremaine whenever possible; “I set out to be in his face”, says Marcea. Whatever she learned at Tremaine’s she passed on to her students at her own studio. Finally her break came, at a convention in Las Vegas; Marcea was called on stage to assist Joe Tremaine. She became his teaching assistant, which was a position she held for 17 years.
In addition to working side by side with one of the jazz greats, Marcea took the dance industry by storm with working with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars: Barbra Streisand, Sting, Janet Jackson, Natalie Cole, Prince and the king of pop himself, Michael Jackson. To date, working on Michael Jackson’s music video “Thriller” stands out as her most memorable project.
While living in Palm Springs, Marcea would drive two hours to rehearsal, after receiving a position in his music video, beating out hundreds of dancers that auditioned for the part. Barbra Streisand personally picked her for a position in her “Left In the Dark” video.
On the choreography side of the dance floor, Marcea worked on projects for both Sting and Prince. Prince was her greatest challenge on “Bat Dance”. You had to be very professional with him and he was quite demanding. Marcea has worked on numbers for the Academy Awards and on the Emmys. These performances are so rewarding as they are so exciting and everyone watches them.
