I hope you had a great weekend!
Schedule August/Sept - We have classes this week, then we are off the week of 9/3. We resume our regular schedule (on the audition results info) the week of 9/10 (Production starts 9/9)
EDIT - First week of classes 9/10 and 9/11 - Because the Moscow Ballet will be here, the schedule will be a little different:
Monday, 9/10 - Starburst Hip Hop and Crystal/Petite Tap Tech - NO CLASS
Tuesday, 9/11 - Senior Elite Jazz will start at 6:00PM
*you may come to a make up class in any ballet, jazz tech, or tap tech class. This is optional
Tech-y person? - The internet access at the studio is less than perfect. Centurylink has not been very helpful over the years trying to improve it. Is there a parent out there that understands this stuff that would be willing to look at our set up? Let me know!
Production 9/9- Tech and Production starts on Sunday 9/9
Recital DVD's - Our videographer is making new DVD's for everyone because of the glitching issues. Check at the desk the week of 9/10 to pick up your new one.
High School Goals Breakfast For dancers in 9th-12th grade. We will meet at a restaurant (hopefully Keys!) for a yummy breakfast, listen to some relevant topics, and set goals for the year. Saturday, 9/22 10:00AM - location TBD. Sign up HERE
There is a MANDATORY TRAINING MEETING on 9/5 from 6-7PM at the studio

Shoes for dance classes - If your dancer is new to ballet, please make sure you get sized by Shelly over month of August so you have shoes in time for September classes. The teachers are working hard on music/costume choices so they can pick out their shoe colors very soon!
August Dress Code - Ballet - black leotard, ballet pink tights, black booty shorts optional, hair in bun (low pony for short hair). Jazz/tap/lyrical - open dress code. Please no oversized clothing. Hair must be in BUN
Parent meeting on 9/5 - NEW - we are making this a VIRTUAL meeting for our returning families! We realize how busy life is at this time of year, and with a lot of redundant information, we feel that you can view it on your own time. We will have a LIVE MEETING FOR ALL NEW FAMILIES, or families who would like to come in person, at the studio at 7:30PM. We will also be open starting at 6PM for people to pick up their Competition folders (which includes your new contract and calendar).
We also will be assigning buddies on 9/5 at the studio, and we will let you know what time this will start at.
Solo/Duet Conditioning Summer class- Just a reminder, this class goes until Wed. 8/29. There are 7 classes total.
Solo/duet Conditioning class punchcard- Take your solo or duet to the next level! We will be extending this class into the fall! It will be a punch card drop in class. Punch cards can be purchased for $100 for 10 classes. Classes will be held:
Mondays 9:15-9:45 - Company, Senior Elite, Junior Elite, Fusion, Crystals, Petite

LA Trip summer 2019! - We have 13 on the maybe/for sure list! We finally have some details for you about this great opportunity. This trip will be late July/early August of 2019. The trip will be Th-Monday. Ages 13-up. I will be chaperoning, along with Kaylee and Maggie. This trip is only for students. If parents really would like to come, accommodations would have to be made on your own as we are trying to rent a large house through Air Bnb to stay in (saves lots of $). The details are HERE, and please note the total price includes everything, flight, lodging, classes, food, and fun.
