Happy November Everyone Remembrance Day:There will be NO classes held November 11th, 2014 as was announced at the parent info meeting. (There WILL be classes on Saturday November 8th and Monday November 10th).
Parent Observation Week November 17-22nd, 2014:All classes from Nov 17-22 are open for family or friends to observe. Siblings are welcome to watch too, but please ensure that they are old enough to sit quietly and respectfully for the duration of the class.
*Please note the in the Lyrical Worship Class we open the class up for the last 15 minutes of the class.
This year we want to extend a special invitation for all parents of younger students and younger students themselves to watch our most advanced classes. These classes are made up of students who work extremely hard at their dancing and we know it would be an inspiring experience for our younger students. We also encourage parents of younger students to watch these older classes, as it can give them a better idea of what is involved in dance training and of what type of level their child can aspire to. These classes are:
Teen Hip Hop: Monday (5:45-6:45 pm)
Level 5 Ballet: Tuesday (6:30-8), Thursday (4:45-6:15), Friday ( 3:45-5:15)
Level 2 Jazz: Thursday (6:15-7:30)
Thrifty Smile Card FundraiserThe Thrifty Food Smile card program has raised $464.87 since July 1st. The program enables us to raise $2500 by next June but to do that we will all need to do our best to use the smile cards when shopping at Thrifty Foods. If you do not have a card yet or need extra copies for family and friend please contact us and we will be sure to get a card to you or drop by the office during your child’s dance class to pick one up.
Friendly ReminderPlease be sure to tidy up the toys in the nursery when you leave and please do not prop the entrance doors open as the building needs to retain as much heat as it can during the colder months.
Snow DaysOur studio seems to be located in an area that has more snow than most parts of Greater Victoria which can cause transportation problems. We will cancel classes at our discretion if there is a snowfall and the roads and parking lot become dangerous. If there is a snow forecast we will post cancellations to the Facebook Page and send out an email as soon as the decision is made.
Purdy’s FundraiserSome of our classes will be participating in festival this year so we are doing a fundraiser to help families raise funds to cover the fees. If you are interested in picking up a brochure and ordering some yummy chocolates they are available outside the ballet studio and all orders and payments need to be into the school by Wednesday November 12th, 2014.
