January News

Hello RDDI Families, 

Happy New Year!!!! We hope everyone had a great holiday season and are ready for an amazing 2018. Classes will resume, Monday January 8, 2018. We would like to thank everyone that participated in our annual fundraiser for The Sick Kids Foundation and our RDDI toy drive. We beat our goal, raising $800 for the foundation, and filling over 7 bags of toys. We are so proud to be a part of a community that works together to help others and cannot express our gratitude for your support and generosity.

We would also like to thank everyone that attended our 4th annual winter showcase, despite the snowy weather conditions. We received great feedback and hope the dancers were as proud as we are. A few things in this month’s newsletter, so please take a few minutes to read below. 

December’s Student of the Month

Congratulations Victoria Anderson!!! Victoria has stood out to me with her ability to pick up choreography, her willingness to improve and take corrections, as well as her beautiful stage presence. Her quirky and bubbly personality is a wonderful addition to class. Victoria is a natural at Musical Theatre and teaching her this year has been such a treat. Congratulations Victoria and keep up the hard work!!! ~ Ms. Erica

Promo of the Month

January’s Promo of the month will be UNLIMITTED DANCE CLASSES AND BRING A FRIEND!!! Since it is the start of a new year we would like to promote the importance of being active and invite all dancers and their friends to take advantage of this month’s promotion. For the month of January all RDDI students can take any class they are currently not enrolled in, and bring a friend for FREE. This will allow the dancers to take a new class for the entire month without any cost, as well as for the dancers to share their passion with a friend who does not attend RDDI. Attached is a schedule with all of the classes we offer.


As costumes begin to arrive the dancers will try them on to ensure they fit, and if all accounts are paid in full, the dancers will be able to take them home. We will inform you if there is a balance to be paid and will not give out the costumes in class unless all dancers can take them home. Please do not allow your child/ren to wear their costumes until photo day/recital for we will not be able to order a replacement if the costume is ruined or lost. Lastly, if you would like us to save you some money and order tights that will be needed for recital, please email the office by Jan. 31, 2018, so we can place the order in time for recital.

Photo Day

Please book off Saturday April 14, 2018 for our 4th annual photo day. We would love to ensure ALL dancers are included in this exciting day, so please join us regardless of if you purchase a package. More information regarding photo day will be released shortly. 

We are very exciting for the upcoming year and are grateful to be surrounded by such incredible dancers and great families. Thank you for supporting and believing in our vision of sharing the love of dance with others. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this month’s newsletter please feel free to contact the office.

 Happy dancing :)  

December News

Hello RDDI Families,

Thank you to everyone that has supported our Toy drive and fundraiser for The Sick Kids Foundation. To ensure we reach our goal of $600+ we will be selling raffle tickets until Winter Showcase on Dec. 15, 2017, and also be collecting unwrapped toys until then. If you haven’t already done so, please visit the office to see the incredible items valued at over $525. Tickets are only 2 for $5 and 5 for $10 and all of the money goes towards this amazing foundation! 

November’s Student of the Month

Congratulations Emma Maxwell!!!! Emma has made leaps and bounds with her ballet technique so far this year. She always walks into each lesson ready to learn no matter what. She never backs down or gives up on the challenges that face her. Emma has shown to me her level of discipline and dedication. She always follows dress code and is on time. Her positive attitude is a perfect addition to the class. Congratulations and keep up the amazing work Emma! ~Ms. Adrianna

 Promo of the Month

Since we would like surpass our goal for the Sick Kids foundation, we have decided to donate $5 for every $10 purchased in raffle tickets. We will also be donating an item for every item we receive for the toy drive and giving one raffle ticket for each donation made. Please see the office if you have already donated an item for the toy drive so you can collect your raffle ticket and also visit the office once you bring an item in.

 Winter Showcase Tickets

Tickets for our 4th annual Winter Showcase, Friday December 15, 2017 at 7pm, will be on sale as of Monday December 4, 2017. Tickets will be $10 each, and the payment option is CASH ONLY. All accounts must be paid in full, including December’s tuition which is now due, in order for any family member to purchase tickets. 

Winter Showcase- Friday December 15, 2017at 7pm

Dancers are to arrive at the studio for 6:30pm SHARP, so we can begin the show at 7pm. There will be a sign in/out sheet that one parent must sign in order to drop off/ pick up their child. If you would like your child to watch the show once they are done dancing, you must sign in and out when dropping them off. If your child has more than two routines unfortunately they will not be able to watch the show, for they will not have enough time. Once the show is over, the parents will meet their children in the studio building to sign them out before they leave for the night, unless you have already done so when dropping them off. In order to keep things organized and safe for our students, there will be NO PARENTS ALLOWED in the studio building until the show is over.  

I know December is a busy time of year, but please let us know if you/your child will not be able to attend the Winter Showcase so it can be noted for planning. Attached is a show order with each dancer’s name. Please review the order to ensure your child/ren is listed in all of their dances and that their names are spelled correctly. To make things easier for the dancers, if they take Ballet they will keep their pink tights on for the entire show and place shorts or leggings on top if needed. Once the show is over we encourage all dancers to join us on stage for a final dance party of 2017.


The studio will be closed from Saturday December 16, 2017 to Saturday January 6, 2018 and classes will resume on Monday January 8, 2018. 

If you have any questions or concerns about December’s news please feel free to call or email the office.

 Happy Dancing :)

Student of the Month

September’s Student of the Month is Laritza Alvarez-Noyes!!!! It brings me great pleasure to nominate this dancer, for I have never witnessed such determination and passion at such a young age. Laritza comes to class each week ready to give 120% and always faces a challenge with a positive and excited attitude. Her memory and attention to detail, at only four years old, is absolutely mind blowing, remembering every correction and difficult terminology. Although she is one of the youngest and smallest dancers at RDDI, her big personality and enormous talent makes her wiser beyond her years. All dancers can learn something from Lartiza, for she reminds me each week to push myself and my dancers to constantly challenge ourselves and achieve our goals. Congratulations Laritza and keep working hard!!!~Ms. Daniela

Below are a few reminders for our returning families, and some information for our new families. For more information on our faculty, or programs we offer, feel free to look around the website. Welcome or welcome back to RDDI and thank you for giving us the opportunity to be your dance educators!

Since the first month is always crazy we decided to give our dancers the opportunity to try all classes for the entire month for FREE! This will help them decide what classes they would like to enroll in for the season, and they can also bring a friend along for the fun. This is also a great opportunity for our parents to be active and come to any of our adult classes.

Registration & Tuition

If you haven’t yet registered your child/ren for the 2017/2018 dance season we will be at the studio Tuesday Sept. 5th, Wednesday Sept. 6th and Thursday Sept. 7th, 2017 from 5pm to 7pm.

If you have not already read and signed a 2017/2018 Code of Conduct, please do so and bring it to the office prior to your first class.
