WINTER THEME

Our theme for the year is “Lessons from Coppelia.” We will continue with this through February. In March, we will focus on the words of the class recital songs which will make their songs/dances more meaningful and special! We will conclude with Easter devotionals in April.

 

WINTER FLU & COLD ALERT

Although we place a high value on attendance, if your child is sick (has a fever or an obvious runny nose and/or cough) please keep them out of class until they are better.  But do notify the office if your child will be absent.

 

TUITION

Tuition payments are due the first week of each month for January – April.

 

MAY RECITAL DRESSES ARE COMING IN! We will be sending home recital dresses with your dancers over the next month or two.  Please no playing in the dresses - keep the dress along with the headpiece in the garment bag until the recital so it stays neat and clean!

 

MAY 2 & 3 RECITAL CHAPERONE DUTIES

Most of you will be asked to chaperone during a recital rehearsal or during the recital your child is not dancing in. The chaperone list will be sent out in March.  If you have a situation where it would be difficult for you to chaperone, like you have a baby that is 8 months old or younger, you’ll be 7+ months pregnant come May, etc. please let us know SOON (by February 1) so we can take you off the chaperone list. To find out which recital night your dancer will be in, check the website under General Info - Ballet Recital.
