Ozsoy School of Ballet

2021 News

After 31 years, Mr. Ozsoy has decided to retire from and close the studio that he has called his second home. We have had a lot of great memories in that building and many, many amazing students. To all of the teachers that have taught at the school, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. To the parents and friends that have helped us along the way, we are eternally grateful. You will all have a lasting place in our hearts. Mr. Ozsoy will still be teaching at Joffrey Ballet School, both at their summer programs and the year-round trainee program in Plano and other summer programs around the Dallas area. So, you dancers can still get classes from him here and there.

Jeremy Rooks, formerly of Dallas Black Dance Theater’s Encore company, will be opening his school in our building in July. It will be called JDR Dance Academy, www.jdrdance.com. Some our students know him from when he taught class on occasion at the studio. We wish him the best of luck in his new adventure.

We will miss the studio, but it is time to get some rest — as much as Mr. Ozsoy is capable of at this point. He will never stop teaching.

Thanks, The Ozsoys

We have finally found a new home for our Spring Recital. Thank you to Mansfield ISD for letting us use the Willie Pigg Auditorium on May 29, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. The address is 1520 N. Walnut Creek Rd., Mansfield, TX 76063. Tickets are $10.00. We are limited as to audience, so children under five will need a ticket unlike years past. We need to count booties in the seats, so everyone will need a ticket to be in the audience. Tickets will go on sale at the studio shortly. They will also be on sale at the auditorium on the day of the recital if there are any left.

Next week is Spring Break. The studio will be closed from Monday, March 15, 2020 through Saturday, March 20, 2021. Regular classes resume on Monday, March 22nd. Stay safe and healthy. Remember that face masks are still required for anyone entering the studio and must be worn throughout your stay. Thanks for your understanding.

The studio will be closed today, Saturday, February 13th, and all classes will be cancelled due to icy roads in the area. It is likely that the studio will be closed on Monday, February 16th, also because of the winter storm moving in.

We are monitoring the weather conditions and will send out emails to affected students should the need to close the studio arise. We will also post on our Facebook page.
