An Update for You
Another Update For You---
1) For Dress Rehearsal on Thursday, May 19th, dancers should plan on arriving at Hanson Auditorium in Manchester by 4:30 p.m. Hair and make-up should be done.
2) We are still in need of helpers for recital. Parents of the younger ballet/jazz class, it would be nice to have one of you in the room each night to help the girls with costume/hair changes. Let me know if you'd be willing to help one night.
3) Pre-sale tickets for recital are available until May 18th. Family 4-packs are $10; Single Tickets are $3. ALL tickets are $4 at the door.
4) Please let me know if you are interested in Summer Dance Classes. See the newsletter for dates and times. I would like to complete registration by Friday, June 3rd, but will accept registration until camp begins. It's important to keep the kids dancing during the summer!
5) A reminder that final tuition and fees are due this week.
That should be all for now!
The Countdown is on! Recital is only 2 weeks away...are you ready?! The dances are done (or nearing completion) and we are putting final touches on performances.
This is a lengthy newsletter, with info on Dress Rehearsals, Recital, Summer Dance, and Fall Pre-registration…So let’s wind down the year:
Tuition needs to be paid in full by Wednesday, May 18th.
First dress rehearsal is THIS SATURDAY, May 7th, from 8-noon at the Delaware County Rec Center on the Fairgrounds in Manchester. As with all dress rehearsals, this is MANDATORY. If your dancer cannot attend for any reason, please contact me ASAP.
Dancers should bring:
-Every piece of their costume (including green shirt for opening dance)
-All dance shoes
**PLEASE have names inside ALL costumes and shoes...then if anything is misplaced, it can be returned to the proper owner.
The last dress rehearsal is set for THURSDAY, May 19th at Hanson Auditorium in Manchester. Mark it down! This evening will be run just like recital.
If you are interested in helping backstage at recital on either Friday, May 20th or Saturday, May 21st, please let me know by Wednesday, May 11th. We need people to help the girls get changed, help with hair/make-up, and other crises as they arise :)
This year, we are offering pre-sale tickets for recital. Advance prices are as follows:
Family 4-pack -- $10
Single -- $3
If you would like to order tickets, please send your request to me by Wednesday, May 18th. All pre-sale ticket money must be received by Dress Rehearsal on May 19th.
All tickets at the door will be $4.
Please remember, both nights of recital are required. Your classmates are counting on you, and the dances were choreographed with each dancer in mind! You are important!

Then, ALL dancers are invited to ride in the Edgewood Days parade with Fusion DanceWorks on Saturday, June 25th. We will meet at 1:15; the parade begins at 2pm! We had such an AWESOME turnout last year…let’s have even more dancers this year! Following the parade, dancers will perform their recital dances in the Park at 4pm. We keep getting a bigger crowd every year. People are looking forward to seeing your talent! Please let me know by June 20th if you plan on participating in the parade or dancing in the park.
I know it seems too early to be planning for Fall dance already, but I’m already excited for it! If you are interested in fall classes, please let me know what class(es) you’re interested in! If you’re concerned about conflicts with class times, let me know and we will set something up. As the studio continues to grow, I’m trying to expand my hours and class offerings, and as long as my students WANT to dance, I want to do what I can to KEEP them dancing!
Please copy and paste the following into an e-mail (or a facebook message, or click the “Contact Miranda” link on the website) and respond to the following notes from the newsletter, the would be fantastic!
