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!

Recital Picture Week!!!

Recital Picture Week!!!

It is one of the funnest weeks of the year and the kiddos finally get to wear their costumes! It is the week of April 30th – May 4th and instead of regular classes that week, students will come in their recital costumes with their hair and makeup (optional) done.   We will have a schedule of when their photos will be taken, but it should be close to their regular time they are scheduled to be here for that class. They will have a group photo taken, and an individual.

If you do not pay for pictures, you do not get your picture taken, so you don’t have to come to class that week and you can schedule a makeup lesson through the office. If you ordered a costume late, and it has not arrived by this time, you can ask to borrow a fellow classmates costume just for pictures and you can be photo shopped into the group photo! If you didn’t order a costume, but want pictures, please try and match the costume as best as you can!

You can either get a CD of the photos, or you can get the digital file emailed to you where you can download your pictures. You will specify which one you want when you pay.

Prices are as follows, and CASH ONLY. You can pay in the dance shop anytime, or pay the day of pictures:

One class: $35

Two classes: $60

Three classes: $80

Four + classes: $100

T-SHIRTS: If you would like a recital T-shirt, you can place your order the day they get their picture taken. Recital T-shirts are $10 and will be here before recital week!

As always, let us know if you have questions!

New Class

Hello everyone!

We just wanted to let you all know that we have opened our afternoon Baby Ballet class!  We have had a few suggestions that the noon time interferes with nap time, so we decided to try it from 11:00-11:45am for the Spring Semester. If you have a little one interested in trying a daytime class, let us know!

Also, don’t forget that the Adult Dance Fitness class starts TONIGHT at 7!!!  It is going to be so fun!  One hour of cardio, muscle building, and dancing!  $70 for the 6 week session! Bring your friends and lets sweat together!!

Spring Semester

Hello families!

We hope you enjoyed your holidays over winter break, and that you are all rested and ready to jump back into classes!  Remember, they start next week January 8th!  If you paid fall tuition in full, it is assumed you would like to pay for Spring in full, so get that in before January 15th.  If you paid in full for fall, but would like to switch to the automatic installments for spring, please bring us a voided check before January 10th.  If you are new with us and registered online, please come into the dance shop and finish your registration.  If you are not continuing in the spring semester, PLEASE LET US KNOW. Also, just a reminder that our policy states that if you drop before the 7th of the month, you are still charged for that month, and if you drop after the 7th of the month, you are charged that month AND the next.

Bring a Friend Week is the 15th-19th! This is a week for the students to invite a friend to come take class with them! It is loads of fun, and a great opportunity for others to enjoy the performing arts! We will send home notes about it next week to remind you!

As always, let us know if you have any questions!

See you all next week,
