Studio 8100 Hosts Beyonce Dancer For Master Class Sept. 17

AVON, Colo – Sept. 8, 2017 – The Vail Valley is no stranger to the world of dance, and on Sept. 17, Studio 8100 will be hosting two well-known dance faces for master classes.  The Avon studio will be offering classes from Ferly Prado, a trained performer who just finished touring with Beyonce, and Solange Guenier-Chambers, former back up dancer to Tina Turner and Ballet Master at Elevation Dance Studio in Steamboat Springs, Colo.

On Sunday morning the duo will lead classes at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in the styles of jazz funk and ballet.  Prado will be leading the jazz funk class from 10:30 am until noon, for ages eight and up.  Solange will be leading an intermediate ballet class for ages 8-11 at 10:30 am and a pre-pointe ballet class at 12:30 pm.  Students can expect high energy classes that focus on technique, knowledge sharing and fun combinations.

Both Prado and Guenier Chambers bring with them extensive dance resumes. For the last eight years, Guenier-Chambers has been with Elevation Dance Studio where she serves as their ballet master, but her experience started long before with her training at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center, numerous world-tour appearances and performances with Cher, Destiny’s Child, The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Grammy Awards. Prado most recently toured with Beyonce in addition to performing with Tina Turner, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Mariah Carrey and Dick Clark to name a few.

“Being able to offer dancers unique opportunities such as learning from world-class performers such as these is one of my favorite aspects of running a dance studio,” said Renee Fleischer, the new owner of Studio 8100. “Both Ferly and Solange know what it takes to be professional dancers, and we are lucky to have them teach our students and broaden their dance knowledge.”

Each class is $35, and students are encouraged to sign up as early as possible as space is limited. The deadline for registration is Sept. 13 and students can register at or by emailing

Studio 8100 is a full-service dance studio offering classes in ballet, tap, contemporary, hip-hop and jazz.  Classes start at age 3 and range to adult level instruction Monday – Thursday.  In addition to regular classes, the studio offers space rental and dance retail.  For more information, please visit or email
