Photo Day- Saturday April 8, 2017

Please join us for our 4th Annual Photo Day Saturday April 14, 2018. Attached is a schedule with info on what colour tights/socks and shoes your child must wear. We will be reviewing all individual poses before photo day, so please remind your child we will only be taking an individual photo if you have purchased a package, but all dancers are to participate in the group photo. Also if you/your child would like a trick shot, you will only be receiving one individual photo, instead of two, for they are more time consuming and difficult to shoot.

Her kind spirit makes everyone around her feel at home, which is the perfect example, and one of the reasons I selected her to be recognized. Nina works hard in every class to improve her craft, and with a positive attitude I know she will continue to grow and achieve whatever she puts her mind to. Congratulations Nina and keep up the great work! ~Ms. Daniela

Promo of the Month

February’s promo is 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.

January News

Hello RDDI Families, 

Happy New Year!!!! We hope everyone had a great holiday season and are ready for an amazing 2018. Classes will resume, Monday January 8, 2018. We would like to thank everyone that participated in our annual fundraiser for The Sick Kids Foundation and our RDDI toy drive. We beat our goal, raising $800 for the foundation, and filling over 7 bags of toys. We are so proud to be a part of a community that works together to help others and cannot express our gratitude for your support and generosity.

We would also like to thank everyone that attended our 4th annual winter showcase, despite the snowy weather conditions. We received great feedback and hope the dancers were as proud as we are. A few things in this month’s newsletter, so please take a few minutes to read below. 

December’s Student of the Month

Congratulations Victoria Anderson!!! Victoria has stood out to me with her ability to pick up choreography, her willingness to improve and take corrections, as well as her beautiful stage presence. Her quirky and bubbly personality is a wonderful addition to class. Victoria is a natural at Musical Theatre and teaching her this year has been such a treat. Congratulations Victoria and keep up the hard work!!! ~ Ms. Erica

Promo of the Month

January’s Promo of the month will be UNLIMITTED DANCE CLASSES AND BRING A FRIEND!!! Since it is the start of a new year we would like to promote the importance of being active and invite all dancers and their friends to take advantage of this month’s promotion. For the month of January all RDDI students can take any class they are currently not enrolled in, and bring a friend for FREE. This will allow the dancers to take a new class for the entire month without any cost, as well as for the dancers to share their passion with a friend who does not attend RDDI. Attached is a schedule with all of the classes we offer.

Costumes

As costumes begin to arrive the dancers will try them on to ensure they fit, and if all accounts are paid in full, the dancers will be able to take them home. We will inform you if there is a balance to be paid and will not give out the costumes in class unless all dancers can take them home. Please do not allow your child/ren to wear their costumes until photo day/recital for we will not be able to order a replacement if the costume is ruined or lost. Lastly, if you would like us to save you some money and order tights that will be needed for recital, please email the office by Jan. 31, 2018, so we can place the order in time for recital.

Photo Day

Please book off Saturday April 14, 2018 for our 4th annual photo day. We would love to ensure ALL dancers are included in this exciting day, so please join us regardless of if you purchase a package. More information regarding photo day will be released shortly. 

We are very exciting for the upcoming year and are grateful to be surrounded by such incredible dancers and great families. Thank you for supporting and believing in our vision of sharing the love of dance with others. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this month’s newsletter please feel free to contact the office.

 Happy dancing :)  

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.

STUDIO CLOSED

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 :)
