Why The Green Room???
What a great question! Well for those of you that already know Miss Timera, you probably will think that it is no great coincidence that the studio name has 'Green' in it since it is her favorite color! However, that is not the only reason or indeed the main reason behind the name. As some of you may know, if you go into theatres, television studios, concert halls, etc. around the world you would most likely encounter a 'Green Room'. In fact, once they were actually painted green. The original intention was that the green walls would help prepare your eyes for the stage lighting that you would encounter as you stepped foot onto the stage to perform. Nowadays, I am sure that most green rooms no longer have green walls and most likely would be full of comfy sofas, hi-tech television, charging stations for all our numerous devices and some sort of refreshment stand to satisy the needs of the performers. Regardless, the fact still remains that the Green Room is the holding room you wait in to prepare yourself for the stage and this is where we took out metaphor. At our Green Room we don't just offer dance lessons, we believe we offer skills in the forms of discipline, self confidence, determination, hard work, respect and drive. These qualities will not only help prepare our students for a career in dance, but for whatever endeavors life holds for them. Therefore our studio 'The Green Room Dance Studio' is the place students will come to prepare themselves for the big 'Stage' of Life!!!
