dancers 2We have been dancing up a storm…

PAYMENTS ARE DUE THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 6TH IF YOU ARE PAYING MONTHLY.

WE HAVE SOME DANCERS WHO ARE ALLERGIC TO NUTS AND REMIND YOU THAT THE STUDIO IS A “NUT FREE” ZONE – Do not send any snacks with nuts with your dancer and no peanut butter – an allergic child can have  serious reaction to touching something that was used by someone else  who was eating an item containing nuts. I also encourage dancers to wash their hands after snacks.

TAHOE ARTS PROJECT SHOW AT MT BLEU, Friday October 24th - Eight of our dancers will be performing with the professionals in this show which is a Bollywood/hip hop fusion – the professionals will be traveling to the schools the week before the show. We are encouraging our families to go to see the show at Mt Bleu. There is a “flash mob” that will be part of the show at Mt Bleu and we will teach the flash mob dance to our jazz classes so that any of our kids who go to the show at Mt Bleu can get up and have some fun while they are there.  The flash mob will be dancing in the audience and yes, I am going to learn it too.

HOLIDAY SHOW – December 14th at Harrahs…..

FESTIVAL OF TREES – We will be performing at this event and have requested Friday night December 5th . This is a great “warm up” performance for our big holiday show.

Oktoberfest was incredible! A special thanks to the staff and assistants who really step up to keep it going. Every year we set a new record for dancers and smiles!

Some of our former students are doing some guest teaching for us – Taylor Shepack is here till the end of the month, Caitie Kushner is bringing her tapping feet to help out Miss Marcia and Kelsie Ballard, whose daughter is Lily is now a shining star, is bringing her ballet expertise to a variety of our classes.

We have been adding classes and making some minor time changes to our schedule and we will do our best to keep you informed on the classes that affect your dancer.

PARKING REMINDER - Please don’t block the driveway of the house at 2111 James next to the studio and remember we cannot park at the business at 2095 James  till after 5PM and we can NEVER park in the two spaces over at 2095 James that are the closest to the studio at any time – they use those spaces for deliveries. When I win the lottery, I’m going to get a huge space with great parking – guess that means I need to start buying lottery tickets.

We do still have a few spaces left in some of our classes, so if you know someone who still needs to enroll, please have them contact us.

Congrats to our dancers who are moving on in the dance world….Heather Dominguez is on the San Diego State Hip Hop Dance Squad, Sara Lucero is the captain of the Monterey State Dance Team, Taylor Shepack just finished dancing professionally in the show “Magique” in Atlantic City (I was able to see her in the show when I went back east for a teacher conference), Courtney Reese is at Pacific Coast Performing Arts where she has been cast in two productions in her first month there, Casey Pereira continues with Ballet San Jose…..

Once again, our year has started off with the greatest dance families ever!

 

Dancers enroll in our Combo classes as the foundation of your child’s dance education.  From Pre-School thru 2nd grade they receive a solid foundation in ballet and tap. From 3rd Grade and up the combo changes to jazz and tap with most students adding a full classical ballet class to provide a well rounded dance education.
