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!!

Thanks everyone!

Bring A Friend Week

Hello Parents!

Next week January 15th-19th is Bring a Friend Week!! Students get to invite a friend to come take their class with them and experience all the fun the performing arts has to offer…for FREE!!  All they need to do is give the liability waiver to their friend and have their parents sign it. They will then give it to the teacher of the class they are attending!  If they don’t have the signed waiver form, they will not be allowed to take the class.  Please see us at the office if you need another waiver.

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,

November Reminders

Happy Monday OCPA Families!!

Here are just a few things to remember as we head into November!

*Costume payments are due December 15th if you would like a costume for the end of the year recital in June.  If you decide you want a costume after December 15th, then there will be an additional $20 late/rush fee added to your costume payment total.  We will have pictures of each class’s costumes on the bulletin boards next week.  If you do not purchase a costume, please be prepared to match the one chosen as much as possible for the recital. You can pay for these in the dance shop.

*Costume Measuring Week is next week the 13th-17th. All students will be measured at the beginning of class by their teacher. Even if they are not getting a costume, they will still get measured.

*WOW Week is the 13th-17th.

*Our Performing Company will be performing at Southgate Mall for Bringing in Santa on November 15th!!!  They will perform at 6pm at the clock tower if you want to come support them!

*There will be NO CLASSES on November 20th-24th for our Holiday break.  Have fun and be safe!

*Please remember that there is no need for parents to come into a class that is in progress.  It is very disruptive and disrespectful to the teacher.  If you have grandparents bringing your children, please remind them of this policy.

***NEW THIS YEAR: We will be having a studio Christmas party on December 15th from 6:30-8:30pm.  This is an awesome idea our company kids came up with for a fundraiser!  It will be $5/person, or $20/family of 4 or more.  If you would like to drop off your child and go get some holiday shopping done, it is $10/kid!  There will be cookies and hot chocolate, an ugly sweater contest, pictures with Santa, arts and crafts, and a fun Christmas performance by the Company members!  All family AND friends are invited! It’s going to be a very festive night full of fun!

*If you paid in full for the Fall semester, your payment for the Spring semester will be due January 15th. If you don’t want to pay for Spring in full, please bring a voided check to the dance shop before January and we can switch you to monthly installments.

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

October Events!

The end of October is upon us!!  We can’t believe how time flies!  Here are a few things to remember in these last couple weeks:

HALLOWEEN WEEK: Starts this WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 25TH (not today).  Students can wear their costumes to class on the 25th, 26th, 30th, and 31st. That is Wednesday and Thursday of this week, and Monday and Tuesday of next week.  Make sure they can move in them because they will be having a normal class.  The last 10-15 minutes they will get to share their treats if they choose to bring some.  Just be aware of the class allergies.  Kids were sent home with papers that informed everyone of those if there is any.

THRILLER: We will be performing Thriller at Southgate Mall on Halloween night.  This year, we are inviting ALL students to participate if they would like to. We will have two mandatory rehearsals: Friday October 27th 4:30-6:30, and Saturday the 28th 10am-11:30am (possibly ending earlier). Students must be at both rehearsals in order to participate in the performance on Tuesday.  They will need to be at the JC Penny court at 6:30pm on the 31st and we will perform at 7pm.  The dance is only about 4 minutes long, so you will be done before 7:30. Come dressed as your scariest zombie (but make sure you can still dance).

If you have any questions, please let us know and we would be happy to help!  We love this time of year and want everyone to be involved!!

Have a ‘BOO’-tiful Day,
On Center Performing Arts
