Winter weather is here! Please remember that we do not always cancel classes if school is canceled. Please call the studio after 1:30, if the weather or road conditions are bad, and there will be a message on the studios’ voicemail if classes are canceled, it will be posted on Facebook and an email will also be sentRecital costume deposits were due last month. Be sure to make a $25.00 non-refundable deposit for each class. You will be billed the remaining balance in January. Please remind your dancers to wait inside the studio for their ride home. We do not want dancers waiting in the parking lot or the street for their rides. Also please be sure to pick up your child on time. Teachers should not have to wait to close the studio for late pick ups. The studio is closed from Friday, December 24 – January 2 for Christmas Break. Classes will resume on Monday, January 3. We are still accepting students for our classes. After December 24, we can no longer accept any more students, or make any changes to your dance schedule. Please pass this info to family and friends!! Attendance is very important. We will be starting recital dances after Christmas break. It is very hard for your teachers to choreograph a recital dance if dancers are continuously absent. Please be on time for all your classes, your warm up is very important!! We are collecting NEW toys this month to help families in need this Christmas! Please consider donating a toy! There is a box for donations at the studios.
CHRISTMAS PARTIES!!!We will be having a small Christmas party in each class beginning on Friday, December 17 – Thursday, December 23. Each dancer should bring in an INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED snack to share with the class, the studio will provide drinks. We will have regular class for half the class and then the last half of class we will have our party. Each class will have a $12.00 gift exchange. If your child does not bring a gift for the exchange, they will not receive one. IN THE TINY TOTS CLASSES, TINY TUMBLERS AND CREATIVE MOVEMENT CLASSES, dancers will receive their own gift!!! All other classes we will do the gift exchange. If your child has any food allergies, please be sure to tell the instructor before the class starts. Competition classes will NOT have parties in each class, the Competition Team Christmas Party will be on Saturday, December 18 at the Southbridge studio. Each competition dancer will be given a name for the Secret Santa.
