dancers 2Our dance season is starting but we still have openings in our classes:

The joy of dance is celebrated here every day…….

One of our Shining Stars, Mykala Muskovitz rode her bike this past weekend in the Tour de Tahoe – 72 miles – and is using it as a fundraiser to share her love of dance with children in the community. If you wish to contribute,  please put your donation in an envelope with Mykala’s name and your name on the outside of the envelope and drop it in the payment box next to the office door and we will forward it to her to tally up the amount she raised. If you write a check, make it out to Lake Tahoe’s Shining Stars, which is the nonprofit and use her name as a memo on the bottom. Mykala’s picture is in the lobby above the drinking fountain. Let’s support this wonderful young woman as she shares her kindness….

Parking – We cannot park in the lot next to the studio (on the left as you are facing the studio) until after 5PM. Even though it looks like there is space available, they have employees who come and go throughout the day. Please honor their parking area as we are fortunate to be able to use it after 5.  Do not block any of our neighbors’ driveways.

TIME TO REMIND EVERYONE TO CHECK THE NEWSLETTER PAGE ON OUR WEBSITE as we use that page for info on what’s happening in the studio – the website is marciasarosikdancers.com

If you know anyone who hasn’t made it in to register, please let them know we are still taking registration.  They do need to come in to register as we are still getting the online site in place. As enrollment continues, we will add classes as needed. The schedule is listed below along with the reg form.

AND ON THAT NOTE-   At the beginning of the year, some days have higher attendance in classes than others due to soccer etc….Once those activities end, we will take a look at where we need to adjust.  We are glad that we can offer you alternative days to make it all work.

Very Important – Please drive slowly and carefully around the studio and don’t let your little ones run around in the parking lot.

OUR FIRST PERFORMANCE –  Oktoberfest at Camp Richardson Sunday, October 5th  – we usually perform at around 12:45 and the show is a half hour in length – this is the first performance opportunity for our newest dancers –

Studio Facelift – Thank you Ed Wright from Tahoe Valley Lodge and my son Evan who was here for the summer for getting the lobby and bathroom floors redone which required emptying the office bathrooms and lobby and then setting up 7 new sets of shelving to give some our bins a new home – even my dance teacher friend Joann from Union City got in the act.  For those of you who don’t know, we also store the entire Christmas show and tons of other costumes and props in another location.  Oh and of course Mr. Marcia was put to work this summer too.

We just added a special time for Transitional Kindergarten into our schedule and are very excited to develop this dance curriculum….

I have put a list of the days and times for some of our classes below to give you an idea of the schedule- look at the  school age of your dancer (in turquoise)   and the class times under that…

You can download the Registration 2015 and fill it out before you come in

 

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.
