Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014 9A Dance studio offers Christmas show to community Debra Moore Staff Writer With its mirrored walls and ballet bars, it's hard to believe that Rhythm & Grace Dance Studio used to be a video store. Owners Wendy Yates and Ashley Dembosz have transformed the space in the Plumas Pines Shopping Center in Quincy and offer a variety of classes there. Wendy holds a degree in dance and Ashley has taken classes for most of her life -- first in Southern California and then through Footloose Dance Studio under the direction of Eileen Cox. When Eileen retired from Footloose two years ago, it threatened the future of the studio that began as the .PC'ctlJ-3nP PnlP in 1QgR At first, dance mothers continued Footloose as a co-operative effort, but it soon became apparent that someone had to take the lead. "What do you think about partnering?" Wendy asked Ashley. Ashley, who already manages another local business, Main Street Styles, readily agreed. "Dance was such a big part of my life growing up here that I wanted it to continue for others," Ashley said. And though the partnership is very new, it's working well. "We're just a great fit," Wendy said. "She's completely organized." "We balance each other out," Ashley agreed. That's reflected in the choice of the name for their new studio. "She's the grace; I'm the rhythm," Ashley said, though the reference is actually a lucky coincidence. The two women decided to change the name when they opened their new studio (for years classes had been held at the Grange Hall). As they tossed out various ideas, Ashley suggested "rhythm and grace" and the name resonated with both of them. Wild Hare Sign Co. developed the pair's logo and it's now displayed in their windows and on workout gear. Dance classes are offered for n.a frnm .q fn dnlt ml nnrl female. Ballet and tap are most popular with the youngest dancers, while teens gravitate to jazz and hip-hop. Adult classes include tap and ballet, but beginning in January additional classes will be tailored for that age group. The studio has about 50 students currently, with dancers also coming from Portola and Greenville to take classes. In addition to Wendy and Ashley, instructors Ramona Eaglesmith and Vikki Dedeker NI=D Mocha, Caramel & Chai Lattes Classic Brownies A Slice of Cake or Mini Pie Hmmm, which cookie do I want?.

The space is also available for other instructors to rent or for performances. For example, Jennifer Ludvigson is offering Zumba there. Recently students from C. Roy Carmichael Elementary in Portola took a field trip to the studio and learned some fundamentals, followed by lunch at Round Table. "It was a blast," Ashley said, and hoped that other groups will take advantage of the opportunity. The partners have many ideas of what the studio can become and revel in the fact that they now havetheir own space and can offer classes at any time. New classes will begin after the first of the year and Wendy and Ashley will register students Jan. 4- 5, 2015. Tn  n ,mnlin nf wht i,q offered, the annual Christmas show is being held Thursday evening, Dec. 18, at 6 p.m. The performance is expected to last about 45 minutes and includes musical guests Keely Nesbit and Chris Retallack. "It's the perfect opportunity to bring the whole family," Ashley said.
