Choreography/Rehearsal fees for groups, trios, duos and solos are also past due. Trios, duos and solos should all be paid directly to your dancers’ teacher. Group numbers need to be paid to the studio, please stop by the office ASAP to pay these as well – a separate check from the costume payments.
Musical Theater Update
Musical Theater Production rehearsals will begin Thursday, January 11th and will be every Thursday until the end of February. 4-5pm for Emerald, Pearl, Jade and Ruby Teams. 5-6:30pm for Gold, Diamond 1 and 2. Yes, we understand that this conflicts with those that take the Thursday ballet and technique classes. Tuition will be adjusted accordingly. Those that are not participating in the Musical Theater production number will still have ballet and techniques classes combined upstairs. If additional rehearsals are needed, we will add some in on a weekend(s) and/or during February school vacation giving advanced notice. Of course, we know that not everybody may be available for those additional rehearsals but as long as we have a good majority. Just a reminder that your dancer MUST be available to compete this number at the Dance Showcase competition on Saturday, March 17th after 6pm.
Any younger students that signed up for the extra Hip-Hop and/or Contemporary numbers, we will be reaching out to those dancers soon to let you know when we will be starting rehearsals.
We hope you all enjoyed your Holiday break with family and friends.
Welcome 2018 - Let's Dance!
