Spring is really just around the corner and we made it through one of the coldest months on record! We are swinging into high gear getting ready for our “Snow White and the Seven Dancers” show. Costumes are starting to arrive! They will be sent home when they are paid in full! There are a few that are back ordered and there is some kind of airport strike going on that may or may not affect delivery. I will keep you posted!
You will receive your costume in a bag on a hanger with recital instructions! Please keep your costume in a safe place and allow it to hang so that the wrinkles can fall out!
We have booked our picture dates! They will be May 18th & 19th. Please, no parents in the picture rooms while the photographer is trying to do his job. Last year it took longer than scheduled as the little dancers kept looking over to their mom instead of looking at the camera!
You will get a schedule April 1st for that! Please save those dates! Tickets for our show go on sale May 1st! They will be sold online, reserved seating. Tickets are $10.00 plus a service fee. You will receive a link to that in April also.
We will rehearse our shows in order June 1st -June 5th at the studio. There will not be regular classes that week, just rehearsals. Your dancer will get 2 times to come and it will be for just 45 minutes-an hour. (Unless you are a lead. Then you need to come every night.) We are asking you to drop off and pick up as there will be several classes arriving and leaving at the same time. You will receive those times in May.
We are looking for businesses to place advertisements in the program.Business size ads are $25.00 Half Page $50.00 and Full Page $100.00.
We are getting recital tee shirts. The dancers names are on the back. Please stop by the desk and check for spelling. Also we need tight sizes this week and hip hop sneaker sizes too! Please leave your tee shirt size at the desk. We will be performing a Flashmob around town before our show and we wear our tees when we perform at Seabreeze. Tees are $11.44 with tax. They are grey with white lettering.
