September Newsletter

  • Welcome to Dance Illusion! We are so Excited to start off our 11th Year with all of you!
  • Parking- Please do not park in the EAST lot! Napa Auto Parts will boot your car. They have semi trucks back in for deliveries and it is a safety issue with our kids. We do not want kids running to their cars over there, plus it is Napa Autos Parking area for their employees. There is a sign saying it is their parking lot. They honor this 24/7 and they boot cars quickly! Please use the North lot right in front of our front doors, and the West lot that we share with Napa Auto and Lewiston State Bank. Thanks!
