New Warrensburg dance studio to hold first recital

Enterprise revives local tradition

Dance instructor Jessica Foley works on posing a group of her younger students during a recent photo session at her new Hidden Talents Studio In the River Street Plaza in Warrensburg. Foley's enterprise fills a gap after the retirement of Florence LaPoint, who for decades annually taught more than 100 students and held recitals, drawing audiences that would pack the local school gymnasium, eager to watch the glitzy show-tune routines. Foley's Hidden Talents Studio will be holding its first season-ending recital at 12:30 p.m. Saturday June 30 in the Kenington Elementary School auditorium, Kensington Road, Glens Falls.

— Selections will be drawn from Foley’s repertoire, which includes ballet, modern, lyrical, tap, acrobatic, hip-hop, and jazz idioms. Foley will be performing a contemporary piece in the recital, Schuck said.

Hidden Talents class sessions have been offered on Saturdays and Sundays, and Foley plans to expand that schedule to weekends as enrollment enlarges.

Foley opened the dance studio at the request of the River Street Plaza landlords who recruited her after hearing of her dance credentials, Schuck said.

Hidden Talents upcoming summer sessions will begin July 21 and run through Aug. 12. The cost for the entire series is $40. Call 636-6949 for details.
