Monthly Tuition- Reminder that Monthly Tuition is Due by the 10th of every month.

Princess Week for all 3-6yr Recreational Combo Classes- Please put this week on your calendars!  February 8th-12th (Monday-Friday) For Princess Week the kids can dress up in their favorite Princess/Fairy Tale costume they would like for class and we have a themed dance week with fun dance activities.

Covid-We will continue wearing masks at the studio at this time, especially due to the recent holidays.  We are hoping to slowly go back to only requiring to wear them in and out of the building and when the 6 feet social distancing isn’t possible.  We will keep you updated and we are working closely with the recommendations from the health department. For the month of January, we will continue wearing masks to dance, as well as temperature checks, hand sanitizer and constant cleaning of our building. Please do NOT send students to dance if they are showing signs of sickness or if you are waiting for results of a COVID test. We knew it would get a little difficult in the Winter Months/Holiday Months, but we are looking forward to it turning for the better soon!

Water Bottle, Mask & Dance shoes– Please send your child to dance with a water bottle, wearing a Mask, & the required dance shoes to class every week!

Lost & found- Our lost and found is a little crazy at the moment!  We will take things to a donation center after this Friday Jan 8th.  Please have your children look through it if they have a missing coat, jacket, shoes, water bottle etc.  We have TONS of water bottles.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for constant updates and reminders!

Solo Feedback Showcase- This year we are looking to give as many performance opportunities to our dancers as possible!  We are wanting to host our 1st Solo Showcase on Tuesday February 9th at the Logan High School Auditorium.  This is NOT a competition; however, we will invite a few local Guest Judges to come and fill out judging sheets on each soloist.  You will receive this feedback to get comments on your solo, as well as a performance on a stage that you can video and invite local family to attend.  Due to each soloist receiving their estimate solo performance time, audience members will be able to filter in and out throughout the evening and we will not have too many people in the auditorium. We will have a small solo participation fee of $30 (way cheaper then solo competition fees) and a $5 admission fee for spectators.  These fees will help cover the cost of the rental, judges pay, and teachers there running the show.

We will have a small $5 entrance fee for those coming to watch to hopefully be able to cover the cost of the rental, judges’ fees, and teachers running the show.
