Although the weather may not be acting like it, the studio is in Spring Season as we are busy making recital preparations! Costumes are mostly ordered and arriving. The kids always get so excited when they get to try on their costumes.
There has been a lot going on, and it's been a while since the last newsletter, so please pay attention to all items below!
Ed-Co Dance Team Spring Show
Some classes will be performing in the Ed-Co Dance Team Spring Show which is THIS SATURDAY, March 16th, at 1:30. Hip Hop Classes performing are: Upper Elementary -- "Good Time" Junior High -- "City on Our Knees" Mallory Solo -- "Bella's Lullaby"
If you are NOT ABLE TO BE THERE, please let me know so I'm not expecting you. I know there are a lot of activities going on this weekend, so we may be missing a few. We will dance with whoever is there, and it should be a FUN performance! Students should wear their Green Studio T's and Black Bottoms. Please arrive by 1:15pm, dressed and ready to go!
Snow | Make Up Classes | Dress Rehearsals
All of these things just seem to go together, so I'll put them all under the same heading... I know we live in Iowa, and snow is part of the package. However, if it could NOT fall on a Tuesday or Wednesday, I would greatly appreciate it! We have missed a few classes, and I hope these make-up dates and dress rehearsals will fill the void:
Monday, April 1st This is a NO SCHOOL day for Ed-Co and East Buchanan. I'm going to hold make-up classes and a mini-dress rehearsal this day. All students will meet from 9am to noon. Classes will take turns running dances, the ballet students will do a run-through of their mini ballet, and we will do several runs of the Recital Line-Up. It should be a very productive day that will (hopefully) make the large dress rehearsal run well on the 6th.
Wednesday, April 3rd This is an EARLY OUT day for Ed-Co. Here is the schedule: 2-3pm -- High School Hip Hop 3-3:30pm -- Tessa Bockenstedt 3:30-4:30 -- Lower Elementary Combo Class 4pm -- Regular Class Schedule Begins
*Notice there is overlap with the Lower Elementary Combo Class and the Regular Class schedule. The two classes will work together on the Monsters Inc. Ballet.
Dress Rehearsal -- Saturday, April 6th This is our rehearsal at the Rec Center in Manchester. ALL DANCERS should arrive NO LATER than 8am. However, unlike most years, dancers do not have to stay the entire time. Here is the schedule: 8 am-- All Dancers Arrive 9 am-- Create & Move Dancers (preschool/kindergarten) will be dismissed 10 am-- Hip Hop Dancers will be dismissed (this is if you are ONLY in hip hop) The rest of the dancers will be released between 11 and Noon....this is dependent on how smoothly the rehearsal runs.
**PLEASE NOTE: All dress rehearsals are MANDATORY! If you have a conflict, you MUST let me know ASAP.
Final Dress Rehearsal is Wednesday, May 22nd at Hanson Auditorium in Manchester.
The final Parent Observation in the Create & Move class this year is April 10th.
If you need to contact me regarding studio business, the best medium is e-mail or phone call. I don't always take the time to respond to text messages. You can also set up a time to meet with me if that is more convenient for you!
I know, I know...too much information! Thanks for reading to the end! Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
