Hello RDDI Families,
As the dance season is rapidly coming to an end, there are a few very important things to address, so please take a couple of minutes to read below.
April’s Student of the Month
Congratulations Georgina!!!! I would like to acknowledge Georgina, for she always brings her best efforts, even when not feeling 100%. She is someone the younger dancers could look up to, a role model for the next generation of company dancers. Georgina is always such a hard working dancer and a joy to have in class. She really cares about her craft and her success at dance, which shows through her incredible work ethic. Congratulations Georgina and keep up the great work!!! ~ Ms. Erica
Promo of the Month
We will be hosting our 4th annual Dance your heart out/Bring a friend week, from Monday May 28th to Saturday June 2nd, 2018. All dancers can come to as many classes as they’d like free of charge, and they can also bring a friend. This is a great opportunity for the dancers to try a class they may be interested in for next season, or to simply dance all week long. We will also be offering 15% off Birthday Parties. We offer personalized parties that allow your child to create their dream dance party. It’s as easy as counting to three, 1. Your child picks a song and style of dance 2. You show up 3. You sit back and relax, while your child and their friends have fun! Call or email the office for more info.
I want to congratulate our Company dancers for great performances at their first competition this past weekend. Everyone did a great job and we are so proud of each of you! The entire team received 3rd highest overall for our Production and also won a choreography award, which is very rewarding and shows how well everyone worked together as a team. A special congratulations to our Inter. Acro Group for receiving 2nd highest overall for their age group and a “Stand out Award”, Kinder Tap for receiving the highest mark of the studio and 3rd highest overall for their age group, Victoria and Georgina for receiving 3rd highest overall for their Tap duet, and Lyrical for receiving 3rd highest overall for their age group. All of your marks from the weekend are posted on the Company bulletin board in the hallway and we wish everyone the same success for the rest of the season. GOOD LUCK DANCERS!
STUDIO CLOSED: VICTORIA DAY WEEKEND
The studio will be closed Saturday May 19, 2018 and Monday May 21, 2018 for the Victoria Day long weekend. Classes will resume on Tuesday May 23, 2017. We will be making up these classes and other classes we have missed throughout the season in June and a schedule will be emailed in a few weeks.
Parent Child Dance
This is the last call for all parent’s interested in our 4th annual RDDI Parent/Child dance. So far we have a few families, but there are still spots left. Rehearsals will be every Saturday from 12:45pm to 2:30pm starting June 2nd, 2018 and the cost will be $50 per family. Due to spacing there will be a maximum of 15 families, so this will be first come first dance. Please email or call the office to sign up, for spots are limited.
All digital orders will be emailed to you by Monday May 7, 2018 and prints can be picked up in the office throughout the week.
Year End Showcase
Our 4th annual year end showcase will be on Saturday June 23rd, 2018. Like last year we will have two shows, 2pm and 6pm. Both shows will be the same so ALL students will be required to be present for both shows. If for some reason you are not able to attend please let us know ASAP, so we can inform the other dancers in the group and plan accordingly. Recital tickets, as well as DVD orders will be available to order as of June 1st, 2018. Regarding our video from last season I know a few families had some issues with the company, as did we, so we have decided to go with an independent videographer that has many years of experience with dance competitions. We also received some complaints about the lighting of the stage, and as we had addressed this to the facility two years ago, the problem was not solved. In saying this, our new videographer has agreed to include four extra lights to solve this issue, therefore we hope everyone will give us a chance to make this better. More information about the video and tickets will be provided in the June Newsletter.
Please feel free to call or email the office with any questions or concerns.
Happy Dancing :)
