JANUARY 2017 NEWSLETTER
Parents & Students,
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and had a happy and safe New Year! Recital costumes have been ordered. Once I receive confirmation of each costume availability guarantee, I will display pictures in our hallway of each class costume.
RECITAL SHIRT TRY-ONS - This month we will have blank try-on sample shirts for each dancer to try on to be fitted for our recital. Please keep in mind that this performance shirt will be worn in 5 months and over their dance costume for our finale dance. These samples are located at the front counter. Please ask a staff member to help you to verify your child’s size and to record the size to be ordered.
SHOE ORDER – A shoe order was placed over the holiday break. All students must have the same dance shoes as their class, purchased through World Class Dance, in order to perform in June. It is highly recommended that all dancers place their last season shoe order before winter recess in February, to guarantee arrival and for students to break new shoes in before our annual recital.
JANUARY 16th – CLOSED – Martin Luther King Jr. Day
OBSERVATION WEEK – January 23rd – 28th. Parents & siblings may observe the last 10 min of instruction to see the students’ progress and the routines that have begun for our recital. All recreational classes will begin to learn their class routines as well as our finale’ dance which our entire company performs together. *Attendance is extremely important from this point on as our instructors must add onto routines weekly.
