All Students Need to be at ALL ClassesHappy Spring everyone and we are buzzing like bees here getting costumes ready, cleaning up choreography and planning the line up for our upcoming performances in April and at Year End. Now more that ever it is vital your child attend EVERY class (barring life threatening illness of course). Trying to prepare a performance piece with even one person missing from class is so frustrating for teachers and students. Teachers do have the say in whether or not a student performs at the recital if they have missed classes and are not ready
Sewing Bee in the NurseryPlease come to the nursery each week during your child’s dance class to help with the sewing of our costumes. There are jobs for every sewing ability. Instruction and direction will be available but if you have an extra sewing machine or serger we could borrow for the next few weeks please bring it along. If you would prefer to take projects home with you that can be arranged so please contact me regarding this.

Dads DanceAre there any dads out there who would like to be a part of a special DADS DANCE at our year end recital? This is a great way to show your children that they are not the only ones who can dance! It will also be a great way to meet other dads from the studio. The more dads we have the better! Rehearsals will be taking place during the month the May so please contact Kristen Low at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
***Older brothers, uncles and grandpas are welcome too! Convince your relatives and friends to join in the fun and the better it will be! If you can even somewhat do the chicken dance, you’re qualified!
26 Days to Raise $600 Please Load your Thrifty CardsOkay everyone we really need your help in loading up your cards this month. March’s total was $200.15 bringing our total earned up to $1770 so we still have work to reach our goal of $2500 and only have until April 26th 2015 to do that so we will really need to pick up our participation to get to this goal. Please ask Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles or friends to help out even if it is only for one month…….If you need extra cards please contact us and we will make sure one makes it into your hand.
Thrifty Card funds go towards our costume budget….no other dance school in Victoria offers family such a low cost for their costumes and we want to keep offering this to our families however without extra fundraising we won’t be able to do it.

Kid’s R Fit 4 It – April 1st – June 22nd
Our first session of these classes was so successful we are doing a second session and adding a second after school class. The classes teach function movements such as running, jumping lifting and throwing in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. Using games, equipment and each other kids learn how to move their body correctly, get stronger and build confidence. This is a great activity for siblings while sisters and brothers are taking their dance classes.
