Families are awesome. They come in all shapes and sizes with lots of colorful personalities that make every day more interesting than the last. Where else can you get fashion tips, homework help, a shoulder to cry on and belly laughs all around?
Our family, with all boys, my husband and me, has all the ups and downs of a really great ballgame. There’s cheering, yelling, sometimes crying, name calling and trash talk, laughing and lots of food! It’s far from perfect but it’s pretty fun!
Here’s a few ideas to show your family how much they mean to you:
Call your parents (don’t text – actually dial the number) and tell them how much you love and appreciate them.
Send your siblings an email or snail mail and share your favorite memory with them.
Teach your kids how to write Thank You notes and send one to a family member.
Spend one-on-one time with a family member doing something they want to do.

Tired of trying to brainstorm the perfect weekend family activities? It's hard to do! We mamas use all our brain power just to get through the week of homework, projects, after school activities, work, laundry - the list could go on forever! Then the weekend hits and all of the sudden the kids have boundless amounts of energy and nothing to do. Ugh.

#Family. We love families! But families get busy and when we get busy we sometimes start to neglect the relationships that are the most important to us - the people in our family! Here's 3 ways to de-stress the family and get your happy on!
At Jeanne's, we take all 3 of these ideas to heart. We strive to connect with every dancer, set clear boundaries and rules so class time is the most productive, and leave the sweating for someone else because as dancers - we sparkle! Check out our Happy Family and what makes Jeanne's different HERE!

In our house, we really try to instill a sense of teamwork within our family. We are Team Grover. The older boys help younger brothers with homework, we support each other at sporting events and school concerts, we all pitch in and do chores together and we love to have fun together. To me, being part of a family means all of those things; helping when help is needed, supporting each other, getting the grunt work done (my favorite thing to say is “We all made this house dirty so we are all going to clean it!”) and most importantly, share meaningful experiences and make memories together. So for me, Family and Teamwork go hand in hand.
Family is exactly what Jeanne’s School of Dance was built on back in 1958. It is the very foundation of who we are. Jeanne started her dance studio to provide a place for her daughter and friends to go after school and be able to take dance classes. She eventually opened a studio location next door to her husband’s family grocery store in Mesa called Wright’s Market. Talk about the good old days! Every day at the dance studio was a day with family, with people who knew you and were there to help you become a better person.
Today, we honor our family by keeping those values at the center of who we are. Jeanne’s is not your average dance studio because there’s no bigger heart than the legacy Jeanne left.

Miss Amy: I love teaching kids and watching that "A-ha!" moment happen when all the dots connect and the light bulb goes on! There's nothing better!
