Some of you did not get the March newsletter so we are sending it again just to make sure everyone has seen it. :)
Happy March, dance family!
We are hoping that the worst of this crazy winter is over!! We have been starting make ups and working on scheduling the last of them and you will be getting an email next week with the final make ups yay!!! Thanks again so much for your patience! This past week, beach week has been so much fun with your kiddos!! What a great way to "warm up" the studio as we get ready to send home summer camp info and hope for spring!! The kids are working hard on dances for recital and having so much fun!! We encourage you at the next peek week to take a video so they can practice at home. In the past when we sent music it wasn't always helpful as they would get stuck with the dance and only have the music. This way you will have the choreography as well!! We are getting so excited for HOME!! Recital 2019!
Coming home soon:
Your families black folders will be coming home soon and FULL of information about picture day, DVD orders, Flower orders, opening number sign-ups, ticket sale info, recital rehearsals and shows, details for hair and costumes as well as helpful tips and maps for your families. We will also be sending home the summer info as well!! Lot of goodies coming home for you to reference to. Please make sure to read through all the papers and let us know if you have any questions. Keep a close eye on your black folder as it comes in handy many times through the end of the year:)

Sign-ups coming up:
Production for our Company dancers is such a great way to be a part of the closing of the shows!! Information went home in your dancers Company class. Sign ups start March 11th at 4pm and spots are limited.
Company sign-ups are also March 11th at 4pm. We take the first 90 dancers and then start a wait list. This is to ensure that we keep the program as strong and top notch quality as possible. The sign ups are for the auditions that take place on April 28th. We ask all dancers to come to audition even if they are on the wait list as often we have spots open up due to families moving etc. Information went home for dancers turning 8 by Nov. 1st. If you didn't get the information or would like more information, please email Ms Karly at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will also be the same day for sign ups for our elite team, XLR8 for dancers in grades 9-12 as well as Xpressions, our pre-professional program for dances in grades 6-12.
