The season is coming to an end so quickly I can't believe it's almost over!!! However, I will say that this is my favorite time of year!!! I LOVE the crazy busy time that brings excitement, confidence and pride in the hard work that all the kids and staff have put into the year. This year's recital is going to be AMAZING!! We are ready to WOW you!! Here are some friendly reminders of things coming up or check in areas that we want to make sure everyone is on the same page. Please remember we are always here to help make the recital time the best experience ever!! Let us know if we can help in any way.
Parent appreciation and participation!!! This is such a FUN week!!! We take time to celebrate you, the people that make it all possible!! The people that drive your kiddos each week, support them financially, watch their peek weeks and encourage them in what they love. There will be some little snacks and coffee for our adults in the front lobby next to the yellow room, help yourself!! We also will invite our parents into the classroom the last 20 minutes of each class to let your dancers teach you something! It is so fun to watch them participate in this and they really do love you coming, don't let them fool you - LOL! Then, at the very end, we will show you our dance really quick. Come join us for some fun next week!
Ads for Our Program!
Ads are still available!! If you have a business or know someone that has a business and would be interested in advertising in our program, please see Ms Karly at the front desk for a form. This is not only a great way for your business to be seen by thousands of people but, all the profits will go to our hardship scholarship program for families in need that are finding a way to allow their dancer to participate or continue at Excel. For our seniors, there is also a special shout out spot for them. :) Thank you for your support!
Check your Dancer's Spelling
There is a list on the heart wall by the front entrance of the studio and we will need you to initial that your dancer's name is spelled correctly. We do our best to ensure we get it all right, however we are human and mistakes will happen. We try not to let them happen often and strive for excellence. This system helps us double check that we have things entered correctly. Thank you for taking the time to initial!
Spirit Week is Coming!!!
The week of June 3-8 is our Spirit week at the studio. It is one of the kids most favorite weeks of the year!! Due to tradition we all gather in the yellow room to watch and cheer each other on. This week is also when attendance awards will be given, tumbling goal awards and recital gear is handed out. We will have pictures available to pick up at rehearsals again this year. (and don't worry... she has already alphabetized all of them! ;)) This will ensure faster pick up.
This spirit week we also theme each of our days and the kids have so much fun!! We give fun prizes for the most creative outfits each day and can't wait to see what they do. Please remember to keep in mind Excel dress code with no mid-drifts as well as something you can still dance full out in. You can also choose to wear fun Excel gear each of the days of the week.
Here are the themes for each day:
Monday - Dress like your favorite Holiday!!!
Tuesday - Dress like your favorite Michigan season!!!
Wednesday - Dress in your favorite Michigan sports team gear!!!
Thursday - Disney day!!!!! Dress like your favorite Disney character!!!
