PROCEDURE FOR SNOW/WEATHER CANCELLATIONS : 

Winter is here, and classes may be cancelled due to poor road conditions.  If the school does close, a dated message will be available by calling the studio (check around noon) at (604) 463-0304.  WE DO NOT CALL EACH STUDENT DUE TO SNOW CANCELLATIONS.  IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT ABOUT THE WEATHER, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CALL THE STUDIO ANSWERING MACHINE!   If you reach our message and there is no mention of a closure (keep in mind that we may not have made a decision until noon), classes will be in session as usual, even if the weather is poor in your area.  Cancelled  classes will be made-up before the end of the season ONLY IF we are left with less than the yearly guaranteed number of lessons.        

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!

 

SOLOS/DUOS/TRIOS- FALL

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.

 

COSTUME WEEK

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.

Dance photographs will be taken at the studio on Saturday, May 4th with Photo Express.  PHOTO ORDER FORMS (distributed closer to Photo Day-please ask your child's teacher if you do not receive form(s)) COMPLETE WITH PAYMENT are due ON PHOTO DAY AND WILL BE COLLECTED AS THE DANCERS LINE UP TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED.  Exact times for each group are listed below. All dancers should arrive IN COSTUME AND READY TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED 15 minutes before photo time.  Please be sure to consult our master  list of hairstyles and accessories for each class which will be posted in April.  MAKEUP: no specific guidelines-- don’t wear as much as for stage-- wear what you would like for the photo.   To ease parking congestion- the other tenants in the plaza also require parking spots for customers- please try to park in the parking lot BEHIND the studio and walk around.  Although purchasing photos is optional, EVERYONE PLEASE ATTEND so that the groups will be complete.  There will not be a re-take day
