NEW CLASSES

We are having such success with our Baby Ballet classes that we opened a new one!  Yay!  Miss Meagen will be brushing up on her Baby Ballet & teaching all of the littles in the new Thursday 5:15pm class.  If you or someone you know is interested, please let us know!

Keep a lookout for our first round of Adult Workshops.  We are in the planning process but a 4 week adult tap workshop is on the horizon starting Tuesday – February 26th & running through March 19th.  If you are interested, please let the shop know & we will contact you as soon as the details are worked out.

COSTUMES

Costumes are arriving by the day! It may be a while before we receive all of them but we will begin handing them out as soon as entire classes are accounted for.  Please remind your student that these should be kept at the back of the closet to be worn only during picture week & during recital.  

If you are new to the studio and your student hasn’t been measured for a costume, please send them to the shop THIS WEEK.  As soon as we have measurements & the costume is paid for, we can order.  At this point, costumes ordered this month aren’t arriving until May so please make this a priority.

As always, let us know if you have any questions or concerns!  WE are one big family & we want to make sure everyone is feeling loved!

Thanks,

On Center Performing Arts

October Happenings

Hello On Center Families!

HOMECOMING
Thanks so much for to all of you that participated in the UM Homecoming parade. It was a SUPER success! We feel that this was our largest turnout thus far & we were so overwhelmed by the support of the parents/siblings/other family members! It was a long parade but our students danced the entire route without a complaint…they were AWESOME!If you wanted to purchase a parade shirt but we ran out of your size, please let us know. If we get enough interest that we reach our minimum of 12, I will order more! Just let Carley or Josie in the dance shop know your size & they will add you to the list.

COSTUME PAYMENTS
Just a reminder that we have begun accepting costume payments in the shop. You can break your total into three installments – October, November & December. This is super helpful for those in multiple classes! The Costume Fee Deadline is DECEMBER 14TH. We will have to charge a late fee of $20/costume after that day. As always, costumes are optional but strongly encouraged. We will have all costumes posted on the large bulletin board through November.

WOW WEEK
WOW week is next week!! We are mixing things up a little this year. Students can earn WOW cards any time through the month for things like: good attitude, work ethic, manners, new skills, etc. They are meant to encourage good behavior, enthusiasm & progress!
We will put a WOW wall up every 3rd week of the month & we hope they will bring their cards for some awesome selfies!!
They should keep all of their cards so they can redeem them at the end of the year during the Student Appreciation Day.

COSTUME PARTY WEEK
It seems crazy to say this but…costume party week is right around the corner! We will be celebrating Halloween in our classes from Thursday -October 25th through Wednesday – October 31st. (yes, we will have classes on Halloween night)
We encourage all to dress in costume although we ask that they can still move & will be comfortable.
We will have little ‘parties’ in each classroom the last 15 minutes of class. If you would like to bring treats, please be mindful of allergies & specifically don’t bring anything with nuts. 😉

THRILLER

Our next ALL STUDIO event is our mall performance of THRILLER!! October 31st – 6:30pm calltime & 7pm performance
We would love for all ages to participate! If interested, please attend both rehearsals: Friday – October 26th: 4:30-6:30pm & Saturday – October 27th: 10am-12pm.
Everyone dresses in their version of zombie attire! It’s always a great time!!

We hope you are staying warm & dry in this chilly fall weather! Bundle up & try to avoid that pesky flu.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Meagen

Homecoming Parade

Hey Everyone!!

This week is PARADE WEEK!! Every year, we are invited to dance in the parade to represent our studio. We invite EVERY student to dance with us on Saturday October 6th at 9:30am.  All classes will be learning the parade dance in class this week. Then we will have a practice at Kiwanis Park on Friday October 5th 4:30-5pm, so we can practice it walking forward as we will in the parade.

Saturday we will meet at our meeting spot (which we still don’t know yet) at 9:30am. Parade starts at 10am.  We ask that you pick up your kiddos at 10:30am at University and Helen. Please make sure to be there when WE end, not when the whole parade is over.  We will not leave any child unattended, so please be sure to be there or arrange a ride for them.

We have long sleeved On Center T-shirts in the dance shop for sale this week. If you don’t want to purchase one, please wear our colors, black, red, or white!

The theme this year is ‘Montana Strong’, and since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we have chosen to dance for all the strong breast cancer fighters out there. Everyone that dances with us will wear the pink beaded necklaces we provide to them to honor anyone who has had to deal with breast cancer.

All family members are welcome to walk with us as well. We have signs that you can hold, candy to pass out, or if you just want to walk in the back, you can do that. The more the merrier.  This is such a fun opportunity we are given, so we hope you all take advantage of it!

Let us know if you have any questions! We will let you know what number we are in the parade as soon as we find out!

The Fall Semester is Getting Near!

Hello Everyone!

We hope you are enjoying your summer as it creeps to a close, and you are getting ready to come back to class here at On Center! We are so excited here and are gearing up for our Open House on September 7th 4pm-6pm! This is the perfect time to stop by the studio to finish any registration procedures, get any shoes, tights or leotards you may need, as well as find out who your teacher is for the year! We will post all teachers for each class and you have to come to the studio if you want to find out! There will be cake and the teachers will be here to celebrate, so make sure to write this on your calendars!

Classes will start the following Monday on September 10th! Remember, if you plan on waiting until your child’s first day of class to finish registration, or purchase anything in the dance shop, it will be very chaotic. If you would like to avoid the chaos, we are open Monday through Thursday 12-5 from now until September 6th for you to come in and get all those things done, or come to the Open House and do it then!

Our NEW 2018-2019 Company will be performing tomorrow August 24th at Caras Park at 2pm for the Family Fun Fest if you would like to come support them! This is their first local performance so they would love to have their friends cheering them on and supporting them! You can also come visit us at our booth under the pavilion. We will be there Friday 12-5 and Saturday 10-3.

As always, let us know if you have questions and please don’t forget to finish your registration if you registered online!

Thank you,
On Center Performing Arts

Announcements

Hi all!

We try not to bombard you with emails but there are a few things that didn’t make the November Happenings email this week…

DRINKING FOUNTAIN
Our poor drinking fountain has seen better days. No fear though!! My handy husband is in the process of fixing it. 😉 As soon as a certain part arrives, we will know whether its an easy fix or time for a new fountain. In the meantime, please be sure to send your child with a bottle of water or a $1.00 for a bottle in the shop. We are so sorry for the inconvenience & working to get it resolved ASAP!

LOST AND FOUND
Our tiny lost & found basket is overflowing!! 😉 Please be sure to check it for any belongings that might be yours. We will donate whatever is still in the basket at the end of the semester.

NEW CLASS
Our Hip Hop program is EXPLODING!! Thanks in part to our awesome Hip Hopperina – Miss Mica! Because of the lengthy wait-lists in both of our current classes, we are adding another one to the schedule – Thursdays 7pm. Those currently on the wait-list have first dibs but then we are opening it to the rest of the studio!! This class will begin on November 29th. Please let us know if you are interested.

Thanks a bunch & see you soon!!
