‘19/‘20 Pre-Registration Announcement

There has been a change to our 2019 Fall / 2020 Spring registration process for this year. As many of you know, we offer a pre-registration option for our current students which allow them a discount on the following years tuition.

The first change is that we are moving away from the dates that were advertised on the annual brochure last fall. The second is that we usually turn this into a physical event at the studio, but are mixing it up this year!! Because we have gone digital, we are going to allow CURRENT families to register online for next years classes the week before recital.

When: June 13& 14th
Perks of pre-registration:
Tuition Discount: 10% off of next seasons prices. This offer will only be available during these 2 days.
PLUS…Guaranteed spot in desired class.

More March Happenings

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

It’s finally sunny!  Woohoo!!  Fingers crossed this is the ‘out like a lamb’ part of this month. 

We try not to overwhelm you with emails but I have a couple of things to share…

NEWSLETTER
I have attached our March newsletter.  Please refer to it as a helpful reminder of important dates or fun things happening in and around the studio. 😉 ​

The Biz – March 2019

MARCH 18th – NEW STUDENT REGISTREATION CUT-OFF
Next Monday, we will no longer be accepting new students for the Spring Semester.  We will offer a couple of recreational classes for new students but they won’t be involved with the recital.  We have to make this adjustment because it’s close to impossible to order costumes at this point and it’s really hard on the teachers as they are deep into recital prep by now. 🙂  If you know someone interested in starting classed, please have them call the studio and we can answer any questions.

ATTENDANCE
Recital is right around the corner, believe it or not!  Our teachers are working really hard to create super fun performances so your little star can shine on stage.  With that being said, it is imperative that your student attend class so that they don’t fall behind in the recital number.  It’s really hard on the other students as well as the teacher if they are constantly having to re-teach their recital number each week.  If your student has missed or will miss three lessons in a row, we encourage you to schedule a private lesson to catch up on any missed material.  Thank you for understanding!!

MDAA – April 13th & 14th
The Spring MDAA Workshop is in Missoula this year!  Montana Dance Arts Association (M.D.A.A.) is a unique organization whose mission is to advance the art of dance for Montana students and educators by providing high quality  training opportunities and dance experiences.  If your child is interested in taking classes, please let us know.  The deadline for paperwork is next Friday the 22nd of March.  Any student 9yrs or older can participate!!  It’s an absolutely wonderful opportunity for all!  For more information, check out their website: http://www.montanadancearts.org 

FUNDRAISER
Our Performance Company has been chosen to participate in the annual Missoula Lip Sync Battle on April 7th at the Dennison Theatre. Not only would we LOVE if you are able to come support us but MORE importantly, we would love your help in raising funds for Camp Mak-A-Dream. You can visit the link to our page & help us help other children in the community that we love! Any amount helps families participate in a life changing camp experience…

March Happenings

Hello families!! It’s the luckiest month of the year!  Let’s hope that we are fortunate enough to see some warmer weather by the end of it. 😉  We are gearing up for a really busy spring so please read this email thoroughly to get all of the details you need.  

COSTUMES

  • We have started handing out costumes! Yay!!  Please make sure that your students costume fits.  We order the size that you approve & sign off on but we realize that some growth spurts are unexpected.  If your child has majorly sprouted, we will TRY to exchange the costume.  You may be charged a re-stocking fee so please be aware. 🙂
  • If you haven’t ordered a costume yet or are a new student, PLEASE order one as soon as possible.  As of this month – MARCH – we can’t guarantee that we will be able to get your costume here in time for our recital.  Reminder that they are not required but if you don’t order one, we ask that you replicate the class costume as precisely as possible. 
  • Please keep your student’s costume out of reach until they perform in the recital.  We won’t be able to replace them as we get closer to June.

SPRING BREAK
Spring break is right around the corner!!  We will be closed the week of March 25th-29th.  We sure hope you are able to have some fun family time during this week. 🙂 

RECOMMENDATIONS 
Our lovely teachers are working really hard to write up recommendations for every student.  This is an assessment of the level that your student has reached throughout this year.  Recommendations help you decide what level and what genre is best for your student for the following year.  You will receive your recommendations as well as a Season 19-20 class list before Pre-Registration (more info below).  Please let us know if you have any questions.  

PRE-REGISTRATION
As many of you know, we offer a pre-registration option for our current students which allows them a discount on the following years tuition.  We usually turn this into a physical event at the studio however, we are mixing it up this year!!  Because we have gone digital, we are going to allow CURRENT families to register online for next years classes the week before recital.  Please see the details below…

  • Pre-Registration – June 13th & 14th; this offer will only be available during these 2 days and this is a change to the original schedule advertised on the brochue from last fall.

Pre-Registration is April 13th

Happy Friday Everyone!

Spring is here and that means Fall is just around the corner! That’s why we have our annual Pre-Reg event on April 13th  to help you prepare for that!  Pre-Reg gives you the opportunity to register for the ’18-’19 season before it opens to the public! This gives you first pick of classes you want, as well as the day/time you want them! Not only that, but if you register online on April 13th, and then come to the studio between the hours of 4pm-6pm, you will receive ’17-’18 TUITION PRICES!!!  PRICES ARE GOING UP THIS YEAR! In order to get ’17-’18 tuition prices you must register ONLINE for the class you want on APRIL 13TH.

Then, you need to come to the studio on APRIL 13TH between the hours of 4pm-6pm to sign your policy form, and set up your payment plan for the next year. If you want to do monthly installments, you will need to bring a voided check. We cannot use this year’s check.  If you do not come to the studio to finish the registration, you will not receive the discounted rate.  If you can’t make it on April 13th, you can sign up anytime after that, you just won’t receive the discount.

Tuition prices for the ’18-’19 season, per month, are as follows:

45 minute class: $45

1 class: $60

2 classes: $102

3 classes: $144

4 classes: $186

5 classes: $228

6 classes: $270

7 classes: $312

8 classes: $354

9 classes: $396

10 classes: $438

Recommendations for each student have been sent home and should be arriving in the mail soon. These are from each teacher recommending what class they think each student should take for the next year. This should help guide you in the right direction for what class to enroll them in. There is also a schedule for the ’18-’19 season for you to pick your classes. Feel free to email us about any questions.

Also, there is a slip of paper that will come along with the recommendations with pre-reg information on it. It should say 1., 2., 3., but some of them may say 4., 5., 6., or 7., 8., 9.  That is a typo, so rest assured you are not missing other number. We are very sorry we didn’t catch that before they were mailed out.

Enjoy your break!
