NEW Competition picture date - Since we are not having the recital on 5/19, we are moving competition (Lightning and Angels) off-site pictures to Sunday, 5/19. This will FREE UP MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND FOR EVERYONE! We are booked at Bloom Lake Barn  -https://www.bloomlakebarn.com/

We were originally going to have pictures at an old railroad yard, but they are under construction. It's almost impossible to get a barn rental on a Saturday. Bloom Lake offered us Sunday, 5/12, but this is Mother's Day and if I can avoid scheduling something on this day I will. 5/19 was open so this is the day we will take our pictures. Please mark your calendars!

Pasta night 5/2-We will again have our annual PASTA FEED before our last regional competition - on Thursday, 5/2. More details to come! This was such a fun event last year and a hit with our students.

*Please note - Improv camp, Lady Gaga camp, and the Partnering camp dates are still TBD so you will not see them online quite yet.

ATTENDANCE (IMPORTANT)-Per our student contract, a student may not miss any classes the week of a competition, or risk being pulled from that competition. We will make exceptions for people still traveling for spring break into the week of 4/1 but we need to be notified ahead of time.

Upcoming travel opportunities-Looking out to 2020, we will be offering 2 optional travel opportunities. 

Poland Dance Festival - we have done this trip once back in 2014 with about 8 students. It's a life-changing experience! Suggested age 12-up. Check out www.culturalinterchanges.com for information. We will have a short info meeting in the spring for interested students/parents. Trip will be July 2020

Disney!- This will be our 3rd Disney trip. Our dancers have the opportunity to dance on the stage at Disney Springs, and take a workshop class with Disney staff. It's a blast!!!! Trip will be October 2020 over MEA break.

If you have even a remote interest, please fill out THIS form.

10 YEAR STUDENTS-Next practice is 4/12 8-8:45PM

Easter weekend schedule - 4/21 is Easter so we will NOT have Production practice. Update- we will NOT have rehearsal on 4/20. We will likely do a Production make up practice after the recital to get ready for Nationals. 

Miss Kaylee's Leadership nights -  Mark your calendars for 4/14. 8:00-9:00PM at the studio. 

Have a wonderful week!
