We are at the start of a new year and are looking forward to a great year of dance. Our Intense Dance Camp went very well. I am so proud of all of you. Everyone worked really hard and I am really excited about these new production numbers we will be doing this year. We will be having production rehearsals throughout the year so that we can polish these numbers and keep them looking great. Please watch for rehearsal schedules regarding these.
We have a lot in store for you this year. There are many community events performances coming up including the Salsa Fest on Sept 21-22nd, County Fair October 5th and 6th , Harvest Festival Oct 27th, the Christmas Light Parade in Dec as well as our Christmas recital. We will be attending the U of A Jazzdance Showcase for our dancers 13 and older on Oct 19th-21st for Extremes and all other dancers that want to attend. We are planning to do the Starbound Dance Competition in November as well as a competition in the Spring. We also hope to be able to attend a couple of dance conventions in the Phoenix or Tucson area. I would really encourage you to attend if possible.
We are planning a Disneyland trip for all Company dancers for this coming summer 2019. We will get trip details together and get those out as soon as possible. The great thing about this trip is you can make it your own family vacation. You can go for as short or as long as you want. All we require is a couple of hours on one day for a performance and a couple of hours on a consecutive day for a workshop. The rest of the time is yours for your family. It’s an amazing way to take your family to Disneyland at a greatly reduced rate. Start saving now!
Included you will find your class schedule. We have put a lot of thought into your placement and feel that you are placed in the class that will benefit you best as a dancer. Now remember that these classes are not set in stone and if for some reason after classes start we feel we need to move you, we as your teachers have the right to do so. In addition to these classes, we are offering several other classes for you to consider including Stretch and Technique, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Pom, Tumbling, and Clogging. We would love to have any and all of you who are interested in these classes join us. If you are interested in these classes but cannot attend at the scheduled time, please let us know so that we can try to accommodate you. Also included is a company policy letter and a contract. Please look over them and return the contract at registration or the first week of classes.
We have changed our registration process and are hoping that you can all register from the comfort of your own home. Included is also an information sheet on how to enroll. Be sure you enroll before our open enrollment date which is August 13th and 14th from 10:30am-1:30pm and also 5:00-7:00pm. We think it will be a fantastic way to have all of our re-enrolling students register without having to wait in long lines at the studio. If you are unclear on how to enroll your can email me or you can come into the studio during open enrollment. We look forward to seeing you and starting another great year of dance!
I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same.
