April News

Hello RDDI families,

A few things below, including information about photo day and Recital, so please read.

Photo Day- Saturday April 13, 2019

If you have not requested a trick shot all dancers will receive one standard full body photo and one close up, which we will review in class this week. A schedule is posted on the bulletin board in the hallway so if you haven’t already done so please review it and arrive 15 prior to the time scheduled.  This year we are on a tight schedule due to another event taking place at 1pm, so if the dancers are not on time, unfortunately we will not be able to wait for them.

No parents are allowed in the auditorium, where we will be shooting, or in the studio lobby. If your child needs assistance changing, one female adult may assist them in the studios, for that is where the dancers will be. A reminder no personal photographs of other dancers are to be taken while waiting, for we must respect the privacy of the families attending. Also, no group photos are to be posted on social media, for many families have not given their consent, therefore legal action may be taken.

 Adjusting Costumes/ Tights Needed

Please try on all costumes and if any minor adjustments, such as straps, need to be made, please bring them in and see Angie this week. Keep in mind that all costumes are ordered according to the dancers measurements and will not fit perfectly, for they are not custom made. If you require more than straps being adjusted you must take the costume to a seamstress. Also, all tights needed for photo day and recital are listed on the photo order and can be purchased in the office for $11.30.

March’s Student of the Month

Congratulations Joseph!!!! Joseph is a bright respectful young dancer. When he comes to ballet technique he applies himself in everything he tries, works hard and always pushes himself. He’s never afraid to take on a challenge. During conditioning Joseph never gives up, even when the class is at its hardest peak. Congratulations and keep up the amazing work Joseph!!!! ~ Ms. Adrianna

Promo of the Month

April’s promo of the month will be 15% off new designed apparel, excluding the yoga apparel. If you are interested in yoga apparel unfortunately it will only be what is available in the office, for we will not be placing a new order due to the past issues. All T-shirts, hoodies and sweat pants are available to order, so please see the office if interested.

Calling all PARENTS

Year End Showcase 

Our 5th annual Year End Showcase will be on Saturday June 22nd, 2019. Like every year there will be two shows, 1pm and 7pm, and all dancers will be a part of both, so please book off the entire day/evening. Since it is our 5th season we will be recognizing all 5th year students, so stay tuned for more information in the May newsletter. Lastly, we invite all dancers to join us for a final dance at the end of both shows, so please stay until the end to see your child on stage one final time this season.
