DANCE ATTIRE REMINDER
It has come to our attention that many of our students are coming to dance class with improper attire and hair left down. This makes it hard for teachers to see what needs to be corrected and hard for students to feel and perform their best. (You can't swim without a swimsuit!) Ballet students (ages 3-6 excluded) really do need to have buns in their hair in order to concentrate on the movements, especially turning!
Hip-hop students: please remember to wear your white running shoes and not street shoes in the classroom. It makes the dance room extremely dirty. Being prepared for any activity is important; let's keep making a conscientious effort!
A sign-up sheet for these specialty classes for the 2019-20 dance season will be posted in the waiting room as of Tuesday, April 2nd. Please note that this will be first come, first serve and that there may be a limit to the number of spots given per person.
The week after Photo Day- students should wear their costumes to class in order to practice in them and troubleshoot any problems.
FURTHER YOUR PROGRESS
Here’s a chance to remind dancers and parents that home practice makes a big difference! Please remember to practice SAFELY; it is a good idea to ask parents first - especially acrobatic students.
Our busiest and most exciting time of year is fast approaching! If you have a question or concern, please don't hesitate to call the studio at (604) 463-0304.
HAPPY DANCING!- Susan, Karen, Rachael, Kirstin & Katrina.
