January News

WOW! That was a long break!  Back to life we go!

So for January....

Remember No Classes on Jan 18th. (Monday)

Costume Payments for Dancers. 
Everyone should have received a note with lots of information for the rest of the year, including the costume payment due this month.  If you didn't get yours please contact me, and I will get you one.  Please get that payment in by the 15th of January.  All costumes have been ordered at this point and need to be paid off my credit card!  

We Need Everyone in Class. 
I know that things come up, but please remember to get dancers in class so they can learn!

Building Lease Sign.
For those that go to the studio, you are going to notice a lease sign go up, don't stress this.  My dance studio is not stopping - (Most likely relocating just down the road - I really don't want to raise tuition again, and the building we are in wants 20+% more with it's new lease agreement, and I have already found a place with more room for the same price, so I am working on the details now). 

Competition Dancers.
Please don't forget with the new year, we are asking everyone to wear black dance attire to class.  This really helps us prepare the routines for competition!

That's it everyone!  This year is going to be over before we know it (which is so sad!) 
Let's keep working hard and finish with a bang!

Holiday Break!

Just a reminder, Holiday break has began. Starting today (Tuesday, 12/22), there are NO Classes until January 3rd.   Classes will begin on January 4th.

Also, We handed out notes last week with updates for the rest of the year and there were SOOOO many left in the studio.  I will get these notes out by mail or email asap (around my family's holiday activities).   

Please let me know if you have questions until then. (I will check my email on and off during the holidays!)

Thanks! Marianne
