September 2015 Newsletter
Labor Day: The studio will be closed on Monday, September 7 for Labor Day. September payment is still a full month’s payment due to August having 3 lessons, and paying for 2 lessons. This extra lesson was factored into September.
Nutcracker: Did you miss our Nutcracker meeting or forget to sign up? It’s not too late! Send the studio an email and we will add you to the list and place you accordingly
Payment: Remember, September’s payment is due at your FIRST LESSON of the month and is considered late after the 10th. Payments made after the 10th should include a $15 late fee.
Italian Fest: There are two opportunities for non-company dancers to perform for Italian Fest Weekend. Read below for more details.
Friday September 18:
For any dancer currently enrolled in jazz, we have an opportunity for you to perform in front of a stage at 5:30pm. There are two practices involved for this, at $8 each. Tuesdays September 8 & 15 we will practice from 7-7:45pm at the studio. Both practices are mandatory to be able to perform. You will receive a note with details at your first practice. Wear dance clothes and bring jazz shoes! Sign up in the hall today!
Saturday September 19:
Calling ALL GYDA dancers! We are looking for dancers to ride in a trailer pulled by a truck (a “float” if you will). This is any current dancer at GYDA. The only cost to you is two LARGE bags of candy per dancer. Please wear a dance costume (if you are a first year dancer let me know and you may borrow one) and comfortable shoes.
Older dancers may be asked to walk and throw candy or carry our banner. We will also need parents to supervise the float, toss candy, and pass out flyers. Parent helpers should wear a GYDA shirt or bright pink or black. Sign up in the hall today!
Jazz Shoes: Beginning September 8th you can have your dancer’s jazz shoes fitted and purchased through GYDA!
Platinum Package: New this year! We are offering a PLATINUM PACKAGE for those dancers who are looking for a more committed dance schedule. In your package you will have 3 half hour private lessons a week (one including a lesson for a solo for recital that will have the option to compete if wanted.) This is a great option for dancers who would like more one-on-one time with the teacher or for dancers who are looking for a more serious dance approach. Email the studio today to find out pricing and to schedule your lessons!
Shoe Reminder: Ballet shoes should be PINK for girls (black for boys), Jazz shoes should be tan and tap shoes should be black! Thanks! 🙂
