Hi Families!!

We had a great first week back and I hope everyone is back into the swing of schedules!! I know it took a little bit at our home. LOL :)

We are so excited to start the year 2020 with such excitement!! The kids were so pumped to see their costumes and we have loved all the positive feedback. Picking out costumes is hard, especially when they don't make as many conservative ones anymore. The staff did an excellent job!! As costumes start to arrive, remember to hang them up in a safe place that no pets will find them and they get to breathe a little on a hanger. I also recommend taking the time now to label EVERYTHING!! It will be a lifesaver later, I promise!!

Here are some winter updates as we jump into the year!! I am already for recital 2020!!! Remember I am always here for anything you need! Your child's success and joy is my#1 goal!

Hugs,
Ms. Katie
 

Recital Choreography

We have started working on dances so that everyone feels confident and our younger ones can hopefully memorize on their own again! We were so impressed last year!! Practicing at home is very helpful and making it fun is the key!! Have them put on a show, sell tickets, make fake programs. Anything to make it fun but having them practice will build that muscle memory. When we have music cuts final and ready to share, we will make sure to get the music to you. We are also working on a private YouTube page with the choreography for them to practice!!
 

Website Updates

Please keep an eye on our website as we are slowly updating and super excited!! New pictures and content coming and a fresh new look!! We will also be updating information on picture day and rehearsals and recitals. You should be able to access all things recital from our website!! We are very excited!! We are also looking for a few families that would be willing to write some new testimonies. If you are interested, please email your testimony to katie@exceldancecentre.com. Thank you!
 

Inclement Weather

Well..... I don't want to hold my breath but we have been a little lucky so far!! A much needed fresh start verses the mess of last year lol!! However, we live in Michigan so we know it's coming in one form or another. Remember, I always do my best to make a decision based on everyone's safety. Students, family and staff. If we decide to close we will post on social media, send an email as well as send a text if you are signed up for the text service. The first time we have to close you are able to make up in a class similar to your dancer's class. We can help you find one. Any second closing or further from there we schedule make ups.
 

Free Dance Days!

We have loved being able to offer these free dance days this year. I wanted to have a chance to not only give back for your loyalty, but I wanted to have extra class options for those dancers that may not have as many weeks at the end of the year based on the day of your class and this way you can really feel your value. We have another one coming up soon!! We will be emailing and posting on social media soon! Hope you can make it
 

Mini Mester Starting Soon!

Our winter camps were such a hit we decided to try something new!!!! We will be holding a short 6-week mini mesters. They are offered for current or new students as a fun way to add a little something to your weekend or for new kids to try dance that it may be too late for them to add in our session. If your dancer has a friend that isn't sure if dance is for them, this is a great short commitment to try it out! The first one, Frozen friends (ages 3-6) will start Feb 15th and run until March 21st. The second one, Pom and Cheer clinic (ages 7-11) will start April 18th and run until May 23rd. Each day will be an hour class full of dancing, a craft and activity based off the theme. The very last class we will put on a big show for you at the end! We are so excited to offer this new class!! Mini mesters will be offered Saturdays from 9-10am!! More sign up information coming soon!!
 

Surveys

All of our classes have either had the students take a survey or one was sent home. We truly value your feedback as we always work hard to improve in all we do as well as we love to hear how wonderful our staff is doing!! If you have one at home, its not too late to turn it in! Thank you for your feedback. If you misplaced yours or your student was gone and you didn't receive one feel free to grab a survey at the front desk! Thank you for being a partner in your dancer's education!
