FEBRUARY 2017 NEWS LETTER
Parents & Students,
We are very proud of all of our classes during last week’s observation. The students were very excited to show you their recital routines that we began in January. In order for our students to continue to move along in their choreography, please have good attendance and come to class on time.
Just a reminder of how closing due to the weather works: If the Shenendehowa School District has a delay or is closed, all morning classes are cancelled. However, many times the roads are clear by the afternoon. If we need to cancel evening classes, we will always send an email, post on Facebook and post on the home page of our website in the afternoon. There are no make-up classes due to inclement weather conditions. The studio is open Monday-Thursday 4-8pm & Saturday 9-12. If you need to get in contact with us during the day, please email us: [email protected] rather than leaving a phone message or trying to contact our staff/instructors through social media. Our email is monitored hourly.
DANCE SHOES: ALL DANCERS NEED TO HAVE THE CORRECT DANCE SHOES AS THEIR CLASS, PURCHASED THROUGH WCD IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR RECITAL! With the overwhelming orders and backorders the companies are experiencing this season, it is in the dancer’s best interest to make sure they place their last shoe order before February break. The deadline for the next shoe order is February 18th. PLEASE WRITE NAMES IN/ON ALL SHOES AND BELONGINGS. We have been finding dance shoes throughout the studio left behind with no names. Names must be on all shoes. We will have an April shoe order but cannot guarantee the shoes will be shipped in time for the recital.
February 11th: Winterfest at Clifton Park Center Mall (Food Court area): Our Dance Teams will be performing at 12:45 p.m. Come support our school and participate in some fun!

Winter Recess: February 20-25: We are closed this week.
