About 100 students from the Brentwood dance school The Studio Inc. performed almost three dozen routines at their annual spring show on May 30 at the Brentwood High School auditorium.
Entitled “We’ve Got This Covered,” the show featured students dancing to cover versions of popular songs, from Tom Jones’s version of Prince’s “Kiss” to Earth Wind and Fire’s take on the Beatles’ “Got to Get You Into My Life” to “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “Tacky,” a note-for-note spoof of “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
Dance styles on display at the spring show included ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, tumbling and hip-hop.
The Studio Inc. is directed by Amanda Fedor, whose mother Kim Swanson launched the business over 25 years ago. It has been located in Brentwood for nearly 15 years, now at 1332 Strassner Drive in the Hanley Industrial Court. For their website, click here.

Fedor recognized the following students for having perfect attendance throughout the 2014-15 season: Katie Bohnert, Josie Gerdes, Katie Howard, Atticus Pitts, Geronimo Thomas, Sierra Tryon, Annalise Whitmer, Sabrina Whitmer and Natalie Yaeger.
