September Newsletter 2020

Welcome to Dance Illusion!  We are so Excited to start off our 12th 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!

COVID- Thank you for all of your help with this!  We are working hard to keep our studio sanitized constantly!

Parents- Please continue to avoid coming in the building unless necessary.  All dancers under the age of 8 should enter the building by themselves now that dancers all know what room they go to etc.  If you need to make a payment in person or have questions our office is open.  You can always call us during office hours at 435-755-6783 or email us at our main email danceillusion5678@gmail.com.  This will help us to have less people in our lobby and keep everyone safe.  We encourage parents or older children to wait outside the door and we will have the kids wait on the benches inside the front doors until their ride is here to pick up.

Dancers- Reminder to wear masks into the building and in all Lobby areas.  We will have the kids put their outside shoes and big bags in the shelves, wear mask into the classroom, bring dance bag/dance shoes needed into the classroom, bring water bottle into the classroom, put hand sanitizer on before entering, get temperature taken before entering, set shoes and water bottle and mask (if you choose not to wear it during class) on the side of the room, find your own taped off box to start stretching in.  When classes are over all dancers must put their masks back on, grab their water bottle and dance shoes, put hand sanitizer on when leaving the room. 

Remember to send your dancers with a water bottle for classes!

Fundraiser- Little Caesars & Swig Fundraiser cards are due to the office by Thursday September 24th
