I can’t believe May is here! We are getting SO excited about our upcoming show, “A Season to Dance”! Please make sure your dancer is attending class every week so they will feel confident and do their best on stage!
Studio will be closed Memorial Day – Monday, May 29th.
June Classes and Tuition
All students will have 2 weeks of classes in June before the recital. The last day of classes will be Wednesday, June 14th. Your June tuition will be prorated (1/2 of the normal rate). All accounts must be paid in full in order for your child to participate in the recital.
*All dancers were given a recital packet last month with dress rehearsal and show information. Please let us know if you have any questions.
**Primrose dance students can now pick up their costume and recital packet at the studio.
Summer AND Fall Registration
We are currently registering for Summer classes and camps! Make sure you sign up soon…some classes and camps are almost FULL.
The Fall schedule will be available on Monday, May 22nd.
Each student will be given a recommendation form on what classes he or she is eligible to take next year. Please trust that the instructor will recommend classes that are age/skill appropriate for each student. It is important that our students are in the appropriate technique classes so that we can ensure their success and confidence.
Fall Registration will open to current students on May 22nd. Open enrollment for NEW students will begin Saturday, June 3rd. Classes will fill quickly so if you plan on joining us again next year please register BEFORE June 3rd to guarantee your dancer’s spot.
Flower orders for recital are due by May 20th. All proceeds from the flower sales will go to our dance troupe for future conventions, competitions and more! Flower bouquets will vary in color so that they are not identical. These bouquets are always beautiful and last for days!
Flower order forms will be passed out next week in classes.
Bouquets must be picked up at the recital before the show begins. THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR DANCE TROUPE!
