October News

As we start our third week of lessons please be aware there are a few changes to the schedule! We have added a new 3&4 year old class Wednesdays from 4:40-5:30 with Miss Tammee & a “Littles” class for ages 18 months-2 years also on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-6:45. Please keep checking and liking our Facebook page! We also have a parent group on Facebook!

We have 2 fundraisers ongoing! The first is Save-around-Rochester Books! There are tons of coupons in these books and they are $25.00. You get $5.00 credit from any book that you sell to go towards whatever you want. Sell 5 and the 6th book is free! The second is Midland Fundraising. There are lots of great gifts in there and if we sell enough you can earn 40% of your sales. These are due October 10th. We hope to get Niagara Chocolate Bars too later this month!

We will have auditions for leads Monday October 22nd from 6:00-7:30! We are so excited for our show “Under the Sea”! Dancers 8& up are welcome to try out!

We will be measuring your dancers for costumes by the end of October. We will be ordering costumes in late November. Costume deposits will be due November 1st. Leads need to make a $100.00 deposit, everyone else your deposit is $85.00.

We have adult Tap Fridays 7:00-7:45 and Jazz 7:45-8:30. There are no adult classes Friday October 5th.

We are open on October 8th which is Columbus Day! Lots of holidays fall on Mondays so we have to pick and choose the ones we are closed!

October 8th-12th is “Bring a Friend to Dance Week!” If you have a friend that is not currently enrolled in another studio and has a desire to dance, bring them to class! Our greatest advertisement is word of mouth so let the inviting begin!

We are a peanut free facility as we have a few students with allergies this year. Please be mindful if your dancer brings a snack!

There will be no classes on Wednesday October 31st. The Wednesday dancers can make up their class in a different class at your convenience if you wish!

We are looking to put together a bus trip to NYC for two days of shopping and two shows. We will leave Saturday morning and see the Radio City Rockettes, you will have free time and we will stay overnight. Sunday we will see “Once on this Island” Miss Patty has a student in this Broadway show and we hope to get a backstage tour. We will come home Sunday after the show. We are still working out the details of pricing but we are excited for this opportunity! We are looking at the weekend of December 1st & 2nd. If you are interested see Miss Patty!

Dance Masters of America Workshop is October 14th at the Millenium Hotel in Buffalo next to the Galleria Mall. Let Miss Patty know if you are interested in attending! Classes are Ballet, Tap & Jazz. The November workshop is November 11th in Syracuse at United Academy of Dance. The cost is $53.00 per student. We are planning on attending Dance Masters Performing Arts Competition April 5th-7th and you have to attend a workshop in order to compete. It’s also a great experience!

We will be putting in a studio jacket order early November. Prices and pictures for the jackets are coming soon! It makes a great gift and show of studio spirit!

We have an online dance store for shoes! If your dancer needs shoes order 2 sizes up from your street size! You can have your shoes shipped directly to your home!

Parking: There are parking spaces all around the barn with an extra lot behind the barn. Feel free to park on the grass as well!

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask us!
