Patty Flowerday School of Dance & Fitness

June & Recital News!

 

It is hard to believe that the dance year is almost over! It has been an awesome year working with these dancers! We are so excited for them to show off all their skills they have learned this year!

First off I have to apologize that this letter is late. My mom fell May 30th and has been in critical condition. If anything falls through the cracks I apologize in advance, but I am doing my best to stay focused.

RECITAL TICKETS

Don’t forget to purchase your tickets ahead and invite friends and family! We do recitals different and we are the only studio that does not charge a recital fee! As long as the ticket sales cover the cost of putting on production, then we will not charge a recital fee!

If you do purchase tickets at the door we are taking CASH only as there is no internet in the school to run our square reader off of! You can go to TuTuTix (click on the blue bar at the top of the website). There is a flier on the website. You can post it or share it with friends and families.

You can catch up on old news here on our website: PattyFlowerdayDance.com. All previous newsletters are posted there.

VOLUNTEERS

I am looking for parent volunteers to help out at recital in our young dancers dressing room. The show will be streamed in there on a smart board and we will have coloring and puzzles for the kiddos to enjoy. Students should arrive 30 minutes prior to showtime dressed and ready to go! Bring them to the dressing room and they will be kept busy there. If your child is in more than 1 number and need help changing please do not enter or exit the auditorium during a number. Please do not exit from the doors close to the stage. There is a finale at the end of the show. After the finale the students will receive their year end gift and be brought back to the dressing room.

PICTURES

The picture schedule is up and you will be receiving a costume sheet with picture times and information. Please make every effort to come!

Don’t forget pictures & rehearsals are at Risen Christ 1000 Moseley Rd. The best way to go is to take Turk Hill to 31 (past the sheep farm) turn right on 31, turn left on 250 and the church is on the left. That way you avoid the village and the train!

OTHER DETAILS

Our show will be professionally videotaped by Movie Creations. Order forms should be arriving soon! We do not allow any video taping or photography for the safety of our dancers.

I am hoping everyone will order a video of the show so that we can support our videographer and make it worth his time! We cannot monitor who buys tickets to our show and we don’t want strangers coming in and taking pictures or videos of our dancers. Thank you in advance for your cooperation! It is much better watching your child with your eyes, than watching them through the eye of a camera or cell phone.

SUMMER CAMPS

We still have a few spots (4) in our Princess Camp in June and Frozen Camp (6) in July! They are more than half full! We have space in our Descendants Camp. This is a new camp and runs from 9:00-3:00 with a Friday evening performance at the studio. This is a performing arts camp and will include dancing, skits and singing! We are so excited to be doing this! Ages 6 1/2 and up!

We have 4 weeks of summer classes and the schedule is up on our web! Summer is a great time to dance. Classes are in the evening and we do have air conditioning. You can pay for the month or by the drop in!

FALL REGISTRATION

Current students may register at pictures for fall classes. You will be getting a recommendation form with class times for fall at pictures. It is always good to sign up early so that you get first choice of your class times.

There will be a registration fee for new students but anyone who danced with us this year is grandfathered in without a registration fee! We will have an open house on August 15th & 16th for new students to register for fall classes. Sign up early to get first choice of your class times as classes do fill fast.

OTHER NOTES

Please check your dancers' shoes. Make sure they fit, are the right color, and are clean!
