June News

Hello RDDI Families,

Our 5th annual recital is just around the corner, and we are so proud of your children’s continuous growth and all of the hard work they have put into their routines. Since this will be our last newsletter of the season, below are May and June’s student of the month, and a few important details. 

May’s Student of the Month

Congratulations Tabitha!!!! Tabitha has been so helpful and has been working so hard this month! It is her last month before college and she is giving it her all! She is always helping her friends and asking questions so she can improve! Thank you Tabitha for being so great and helpful! Congratulations Tabitha and keep up the good work!!! ~Ms. Julia 

June’s Student of the Month

Congratulations Mya!!! Mya always walks into the building with a beautiful smile on her face and stops by the office to say hi. She makes a point of talking to everyone in the hallway regardless if they are in her class, and when she is waiting for her class to begin, she watches and cheers for her fellow students. Mya you are a joy to be around and keep smiling, for it is contagious. Congratulations Mya and keep up the good work!!! ~Ms. Angie 

Promo of the Month

June’s promo of the month is Pre- Register for the 2019/2020 dance season, save the $25 registration fee and receive a FREE gift. Attached is a tentative schedule. Please know things may change depending on enrollment, but we will try our best to stick to the schedule, for we know you are also planning other activities for your children.   

Ticket Sales

Tickets for both the 1pm and 6pm show will be $18+HST each, and are available for purchase. We will be accepting cash, cheque or e-transfers as payment options. Tickets will be available at the door, as long as the shows don’t sell out before then, but the cost will be $23+HST, and it will be cash only. Lastly, all accounts must be paid in full before any tickets can be purchased, excluding summer camp tuition.  

Recital DVD Sales

If you have already paid for your DVD’s at Winter Showcase you do not have to fill out a form, but if you have a balance owing please include that in your June tuition. We have brought our suggestions to the videographer and there will be a DVD menu option, as well as we met with the building to discuss lighting. We learned that for the past 5 years the entire lighting system was not be utilized during our shows, due to burned our bulbs and lack of knowledge, therefore the issue should be fixed for recital. Lastly, if interested, our videographer has offered to give a USB instead of a DVD, but the cost will be an additional $13. Please see Ms. Angie for more info.  

5th Year Students and Perfect Attendance

We will be recognizing our 5th year students at the beginning of both shows, and if you haven’t already done so we ask that you send us any dance related photos you may have, excluding our photo day photos, by Saturday June 8th, 2019. 5th year recognition is something will be doing every season moving forward, for we appreciate your support and loyalty. We will also be recognizing dancers that have had perfect attendance. This is something that is very rare and much appreciated by all the teachers, and we believe the dancers deserve to be rewarded for their commitment. I will be sending an email on Thursday June 20th, 2019 if your child qualifies for perfect attendance and they will also be recognized at the beginning our each show. 

Flower Sales at Year End Showcase

Like last season, the competitive team will be organizing flower sales, so if interested stay tuned for more info.

Year End Showcase

Attached is a show order. Please review it to make sure your child’s name is spelled correctly and that all their dances are listed. We ask that all students arrive dressed in their first costume for 12:30pm SHARP for the 1pm show, and 5:30pm SHARP for the 6pm show. Both shows will be the same, therefore all dancers are required to be present for both. All dancers must leave the premises in between shows to allow us to clean and set up for the evening show. Only the parent volunteers will be allowed downstairs for safety reasons, so like the Winter Showcase you will sign your child in and then sign them out once you pick them up at the end of each show. If your child is in less than 3 dances they are able to watch the show for free, but you will sign them in/out when you drop them off, so we know they are accounted for at the end of the night. Like every season we will have a finale where the dancers can all come on stage for a final dance party, so if possible please stay until the end and join us in on final dance.   

Please feel free to call or email the office with any questions or concerns and thank you for another great season! 

Happy Dancing :)
