Thank you to everyone who has supported our toy drive and fundraiser for The Sick Kids Foundation. To ensure we reach our goal of $1000 we will be selling raffle tickets until intermission at Winter Showcase, and will 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 $550. 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 Madelyne!!!! Working with Madelyne in her private lesson has been an honour. Her joy for dancing shines through in her work ethic. She is always up for a challenge and works hard until she gets it right. I have seen big improvements in her dancing this season and despite a recent injury, she has come back super strong and ready to give 110%. That passion is very important in the development of these young dancers. It will show up on stage and in life. Congratulations and keep it up Maddie!!! ~Ms. Erica

Winter Showcase Tickets
Tickets for our 5th annual Winter Showcase, Friday December 14, 2018 at 7pm, are now on sale. Tickets are $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 Information
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 2018.
Since we are celebrating our 5th season we have decided to have our videographer present and to have DVDs available for purchase. For more info please contact the office.
The studio will be closed from Saturday December 15, 2018 to Saturday January 5, 2019 and classes will resume on Monday January 7, 2019.
If you have any questions or concerns about December’s news please feel free to call or email the office.
Happy Dancing :)
