April News

Recital News

Costumes are arriving and we are sending them home if they are paid for. 1 pair of tights is included. If your class needs more than 1 color/pair of tights, the second pair will be charged to your account.

Please watch for an email with makeup and costume instructions!

HELP!

Parents of teens performing in both shows, please considerer helping out at one of the shows. We have a lot of little ones and need parent volunteers to help out watching them as they will be sitting in the audience. We will also need help with concessions during intermission.

We are looking for donations of gift baskets for a raffle instead of our 50/50 raffle this year. We also have some items that need to be wrapped nicely in a basket. If you are good at this, please see Miss Patty. Proceeds go towards our scholarship fund!

Advertisements

If you own a business or work for a company that would like to put an advertisement in the program, that would be great! Money from advertisements helps defray the costs of printing. Printing of programs usually costs between $500-$600.

Pictures

Class pictures will be taken May 20th at Risen Christ Church, 1000 Moseley Rd. We will be sending out a schedule soon. Pictures will be taken between 1:00-8:00 and we will have regular classes that day!

Seabreeze Day

Our Seabreeze Day is June 3rd. It’s a great chance for our dancers to perform before the actual recital. We wear our recital tees and shorts for our performance so that we don’t get our costumes dirty before the show. We will have discounted tickets for friends and family (dancers are free!). Please sign up at the desk if you are interested in having your dancer perform and let us know how many tickets you need. 

Tees

Last call for recital tees! They are being ordered this week. If you ordered and have not paid please do so! $15.00 includes tax.

Summer & Fall Classes

The summer and fall schedule will be posted May 1st! We are already getting calls for new students but always give our current students first choice of class times! You may register for summer and fall classes starting May 1st. Summer Camps are already listed on our web page. New camp this year: “Ballet & Jazz Boot Camp” for ages 7 & up!

Competition

We will be forming competition teams for those who wish to participate. All those auditioning for a team will have to be signed up for either the 4 week session, the Boot Camp or both. Students will be placed according to ability by our faculty. You do not have to audition for competition classes to take the summer classes or Boot Camp; dance is available to all! We just have some students who want to compete.

Disney in Anaheim

Dance Masters of America is having their convention/competition in Anaheim July 2018. They have family discounts for Disney! The convention hotel is the Marriott Anaheim. Anyone wishing to attend please see Miss Patty. We will be saving a block of rooms in September. This is always a great convention for dancers and competitors. You do not have to compete to go! It also make a great family vacation!

Dance Masters

Miss Patty has been appointed the Junior Membership Chair for Dance Masters! Any students wishing to participate in Junior Membership help out at workshops, get their own workshops and help out at the performing Arts Competition and Pageant. It’s fun and educational! More details to follow!

Shoes

Please make sure your dancer’s shoes are clean and fit properly. Dancers seem to outgrow their shoes in the spring!

 

Our sincere condolences to the family of Olivia Russo and Morgan DeMar. Olivia’s mom Jesse, who is also Morgan’s aunt, passed away last week. We are so sorry for their loss and hope that we as their dance family can show them love and support.
