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 :)
