The deadline to sign-up is Monday, February 8! Recital Fee: Just a reminder that in March there is a $60 recital fee PER FAMILY (not per dancer) due with your monthly payment. Please write a separate check for this, or if paying with cash put it in a separate envelope. Checks may go together in the same envelope. This fee helps cover the cost of the facility rental, scenery, and more!
GDC Trivia Night: Our competitive dance company, Grace Dance Company, will be hosting a trivia night on Saturday March 5 to raise money to cover their expenses. Doors open at 6pm in the Community Room at the Collinsville Memorial Public Library. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. See Mrs. Michelle (Wednesdays) or Mrs. Jessica (Tues/Thurs) for more details!
Looking Ahead: We will be closed for Spring Break March 27-April 3.
Dress Code: In addition to sending your dancer in a leotard and *dance* tights each week, please make sure their hair is up. Shorter hair should come half up and half down if you can’t secure all of it up. Also just a reminder that all jazz dancers need TAN jazz shoes, all girls should have PINK ballet shoes (boys should have BLACK), and all tap shoes should be BLACK.
Bad Weather Policy: In the event of bad weather (snow, ice, tornadoes, etc.) we will change the voicemail on the studio phone by 2PM to confirm closing along with updating the studio Facebook page. If possible we will also send out an email and update our website letting you know if the studio is closed. If bad weather is to occur during studio hours rather than the daytime, please call the studio to confirm if we will stay open the remainder of the night before coming to class.
