As we enter May, we are so proud of each and every one of our dancers! Everyone is working hard in class, learning and refining their recital performances. We are so excited to see our Recital plans coming together for next month! As you can imagine, planning in this everchanging environment is a bit challenging but so rewarding to be able to give the children the chance to dance onstage! We wanted to touch base with everyone to give you an update on plans and upcoming events!
A few things to note …
Class pictures will be held at the studio on June 3, 4, 5. Please review the attached schedule for your class’ assigned day and time. We have set up the schedule to limit the number of people in the building or needing to change costumes. If you are unable to attend your scheduled time but would like to purchase an individual photo, please contact the office for an alternate time to stop by that weekend. Thursday/Friday/Saturday recreational classes will take their picture at the time listed and practice their recital routine for the rest of their regular class time. Dancers can wear their costume or bring a change of clothes. Competitive/technique classes on those day will be notified separately of class changes/cancellations. Order forms and envelopes will be passed out in class shortly, please be sure to fill out your order completely before arriving at the studio.
Classes will run through Saturday, June 12. Please note the season has been extended at no additional tuition charge. The studio will be closed for Memorial Day weekend, Friday, May 28-Monday, May 31. Attendance at this time is very important, please do your best to attend classes so we are prepared to dance on stage! Protocols remain in place however, so we appreciate your diligence in monitoring your child’s and family’s health. A zoom class can be set up if your child needs to stay home for health reasons, please email the office as soon as possible so we can set up the zoom for your child.
Tuition Accounts: The May tuition payment due on May 1 was the final monthly tuition payment of the season. Please review your parent portal, all accounts should be paid in full at this time, please remit any outstanding balances as soon as possible.

Rehearsals: We will run individual group rehearsals on Monday, June 14, Tuesday, June 15 or Wednesday, June 16 during the week to allow the children the chance to come see the theater and practice their dance and stage entrances.
