New Dance School Taking the Stage: Sara Jean Dance Company

With the pandemic calming down, local businesses on Long Island are allowed to open, including dance schools. This brand new dance company is ready to share their passion for the art and teach kids how to express themselves through dance.

New Dance School Taking the Stage: Sara Jean Dance Company

Twenty-two-year-old, Sara Jean Haas has been in love with dance since she was basically born. At two and half years old she began to dance and not long after that she knew that dance was her passion. She lived in Smithtown, graduated from Smithtown West, and then went on to get her degree at Sacred Heart University. She studied business and danced for their division 1, nationally ranked dance team for four years. She has now come back to her hometown and is ready to use her passion to help others find the same love for dance that she has always had.

At only twenty-two years old, Sara is about to live her dream and own her own dance company.

August 1st will be the grand opening of Sara Jean Dance Company: a dance school for ages 2 and older, for people interested in learning a large variety of styles including kinder combo, ballet, technique/stretch, jazz, hip hop, musical theater, lyrical/contemporary, tap, kickline/pom, and "Off ice Training." There will be recreational classes along with competition classes, differently-abled classes, adult dance, and adult Zumba. For students interested in competing for the Sara Jean Dance Company in group dances, solos, duos, or trios, auditions will be held the week of August 24. Summer programs will also be available starting August for Monday through Fridays which is great for kids who are looking to get active while off of school. The summer programs include morning sessions (9 A.M. to noon) or afternoon sessions (1 P.M. - 4 P.M.) The season will be starting on September 7th, 2020.

The inside of the building is all getting redone and so far looks absolutely beautiful. The dance rooms have tall ceilings, beautiful mirrors covering walls, and floors that are perfect for turning. The large building has lots of potentials to be an amazing studio and it clearly will be.

Sara's fun and caring personality, her strong love for dance, and her knowledge of business management all show that this dance company really is going to be spectacular. Sara is driven to use her love of dance to show people how to gain confidence, how to express themselves, how to love being active, and how to be the best dancer they can be. Sara wants to use this company to create a wonderful family and team, and shape people's lives for the better.

I am looking forward to being a dance instructor at this brand new dance company. I have been dancing for 15 years and have wanted to teach dance since I was little. This school has welcomed me with open arms and I am excited to be a part of the Sara Jean Dance Company family.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
