MARCH 2017 NEWSLETTER
Parents & Students,
Spring is almost here! With the nice weather approaching and spring sports beginning, I would like to ask everyone to please continue with good attendance for the remaining dance season. At this time, choreography is added weekly to all routines. In addition to their regular class routines, our students will learn our company finale’ routine as well. It is very important that students make it to class each week and on time.

Final Observation: Our last observation week for the season is March 20th – 25th. Photos and videos are allowed. Beginning May 1st, all viewing windows will be closed. This gives our instructors & students privacy to perfect their performance routines and surprise their family and friends on their accomplishments at the recital.
Finale’ Rehearsal: Mandatory Finale’ rehearsal for all recital performers June 17th AT THE STUDIO! Check-in is from 12:15-12:45. Rehearsal begins at 1pm until about 2:30 p.m. It will include a company photo along with finale choreography. This is a DROP OFF rehearsal. Parents are NOT permitted behind the check-in tables for the safety of our students and the fire code. The same one (1) parent/guardian that signs in must sign out, this policy applies to all check-in/outs!
RECITAL: Reminder that our 2017 recital weekend is June 23rd & 24th at Ballston Spa High School. Students must come prepared dressed in their costume, tights (no underwear) and hair pulled back in a tight pony tail for both rehearsal and recital. All students (except Creative Movement who will receive a separate schedule/policy for recital weekend) are to attend on Friday June 23rd - our full-dress rehearsal. Check in for dress rehearsal is from 4:15-4:45. Dress rehearsal will last until about 8pm. *PLEASE BE PATIENT! Dress rehearsal usually takes a little longer than recital for your dancers to feel comfortable and get out any “bugs” before they perform for you. Please allow us the time we need to provide the best experience for your children and families. Saturday June 24th is our Recital Day. Student Check-in is 1:00-1:45. All dancers must be signed in by 1:45. Doors will open for non-Ambulatory viewers at 1:15p.m. Doors for all others will open at 1:30 p.m. Recital begins at 2pm with estimated ending around 5pm. Our detailed recital info/policies will be provided to everyone in May.
Chaperones: We are still in need for female volunteers to chaperone specific classes. If you are interested, please see Miss Erica directly to see if your child’s class is still in need of a chaperone. Each parent volunteer chaperone will receive 2 free tickets to our recital for your family. Thank you in advance for your help. *These chaperones will need to attend our finale ‘rehearsal as well as both dress rehearsal and recital.
Special Program Notes: You can place a personal note/congratulations ad to your dancer in our recital program. Order forms are now available. Deadline for all program notes is April 14th.
