Intermediate ballet students at The Dancer’s Extension recently completed a master dance class with guest instructor Anna Maiche.

Maiche is a senior student with the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CPYB) in Carlisle, Penn. Upon her graduation from the CPYB this spring, she plans to pursue a professional career in ballet instruction and performance.

Students at The Dancer’s Extension learned from Maiche’s expertise, working on their dance technique, grace, poise and strength. By studying dance with Maiche, students also accrued points towards induction in the National Honor Society for Dance Arts, a program of the National Dance Education Organization.

The Dancer’s Extension encourages healthy and balanced lifestyles through the art of dance, offering classes for all ages in ballet, jazz and contemporary styles. For more information, call 828-749-9398 or visit
