Studio Closure Dates: Thanksgiving Break will be Tuesday November 22-Sunday November 27. Christmas Break will be Tuesday December 23-Sunday January 1.
Payment: Just a reminder—monthly tuition is due at your first lesson each month and is considered late after the 10th of the month. If paying in the studio via cash/check please fill out the envelope with your dancer’s FIRST and LAST name along with anything else the example asks for. I know many of your kiddo’s sweet nicknames and who is in what but Ms. Katie has been struggling with searching through our student list to find out which “Sally” is paying $5 😉
Referral Program: NEW—beginning November 1 we are launching a brand new referral program that will be a win for everyone. When you refer a new student to our studio you AND the new student will receive a $50 tuition credit after they have been with the studio for two months. Many of our dance families come from word of mouth and we want to start a system of THANKS to you and a warm welcome to them with this offer! Make sure when they register that they drop your name so we can give credit where it’s due 😉
Dress Code: As we are entering the colder months, please make sure you send your dancer in warm dance clothes. Tights and a long sleeved or three quarter sleeved leotard is recommended for those who get chilly easily. Wrapped ballet sweaters, form fitting cardigans, and legwarmers are also permissible, but please no baggy jackets, coats, or sweatshirts!
Parent Participation Week: November 14-17 we invite parents in of all of our classes to come in to class to DANCE! All students that have a parent come in to dance with them for their entire class will be entered to win a $25 tuition credit! So wear your comfy clothes & be prepared to take class with your dancer!
Variety/Pre- Show Sign-Up: Does your dancer want MORE from dance? I recommend signing them up for a solo, duet or trio in our Variety Show (older dancers) or Pre-Show (youngest dancers)! Small groups are available too for a small group of friends who want to perform their own group dance, separate from recital routines. Variety Show is between our youngest and oldest recitals and is where our older dancers perform their extra routines. Those dancers who are in our younger show will perform their routine in the Pre-Show before the younger show. Dancers in the Variety Show/Pre-Show get to pick their own song, style, and costume out. Sign-up will be out next month! These are optional additional routines to add to your dancer’s regular class(es). These lessons typically meet every other week from January-May and are usually a half hour in length each. The cost per half hour for a solo is $30, $15 per dancer for a duet, $10 per dancer for a trio, or $8 per dancer for a small group.
Nutcracker: Save the date! Our 2016 Nutcracker will be held on Saturday December 10 at St. John Evangelical Church of Christ’s Faith Hall (307 West Clay Street in Collinsville). Admission is a paper item, hygiene item, non-perishable food item, or NEW TOY (ages coming soon).
Christmas Bash Save The Date: We are going to throw an EPIC Christmas Bash for our dancers on Saturday December 3, complete with a dj, games, snacks, and more! We will send out an invitation via email to you in a few weeks!
