December News

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

We cannot believe December is already here! This has been an amazing fall at DDDS and we are so excited for 2018. The students have been working hard the past few months and it's wonderful to watch each one of them grow as athletic and creative dancers. Below is a ton of important information regarding the rest of the school year at DDS. Please make sure you read through it carefully before the holiday madness begins.

STUDIO HOURS

Please do not have your dancer arrive to dance classes more than 15 minutes early when classes have not begun.  We do not have adult supervision and there are other businesses on our floor so we cannot have them waiting and causing disruption in the hallways. Many walk to the studio after school and usually Ale is there, however on early release days many students are arriving more than 1 hour before the studio opens and we do not provide supervision and are liable for accidents that happen in the building during that time. 

It is important that younger dancers have an adult or older sibling present at drop off and pick-up so they are not riding elevators by themselves or waiting in dark parking lots alone.  Please make sure dancers are dressing for the colder weather, warm muscles not covered in the parking lot can become prone to injuries.

RECITAL
Saturday, June 16, 2018 | 11AM + 4PM

When we return from holiday break it won't be too long before recital preparation begins. Classes will begin dances in the new year so it is important that students have consistent attendance and focus during class time. Teachers will be taking costume measurements throughout the month of December. Please make sure your child is in class so that the appropriate costume size is ordered. 

Recital is optional. Parents must notify Ale in the office (ale@definitivedance.com) by December 15 if their student is not participating in the recital. Costume Deposits are due with January Tuition and are non-refundable. 

There are still some photos and dvds from last year's recital in the box at the entrance of the studio lobby. Stop by if you think you still need to grab yours. 

RECITAL COSTUME DEPOSITS
Fees are due with January Tuition

This month every dancer will be measured for a recital costume. If you will not be participating in recital you must notify Ale in the office (ale@definitivedance.com) ASAP. Costume Deposits are non-refundable.
