Hello Dancers and Familes:
Here is the news of the week:
June recital dancers stay tuned... I expect to have the matinee and evening show order out this weekend.
Saturday Lion King Rehearsal. If you are participating and did not get a previous message let me know.
This Friday, our Angels Team is on! Performing on the in-field at the Angels stadium, if you are going to the baseball game let us know! Bobble Head giveaway too! Game is at 6:30.
More: Mom's - this one is for you - perform with us in the matinee show! Rehearsal will be limited. Kindly respond to this message and let me know either Saturday or Sunday morning or afternoons as the best day to get togetherfor rehearsal. We won't meet until June - as this will be a short dance, no stress, just fun!
and More: Ballet Conservatory Dancers: Please attend the Pre-professional class this Monday at 6:30, you will be having a guest teacher: Branden formally from the Anaheim Ballet. Rehearsal with Miss Rebecca will follow class at 7:30.
Still More: Parents of my pre-ballet students in the Tuesday 3:45 class with Miss Raquel, please look for a separate email from me soon regarding the June recital.
Looking Ahead: Picture weekend has been postponed due to a family matter with Mr. Steve, I will reschedule for a later date.
And in the here we go again....... SATURDAY, MAY 6th -THE WILL BE PAVING OUR PARKING LOT... Saturday classes this day will be cancelled so dancer please take a make up lesson in another class. My Ballet I on Monday at 3:30 or my Tap I/II on Tuesday at 4:30 works.
and more exciting news: TUESDAY NIGHT, May 23, 6:30 is the night! Want to perform at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World in Florida next summer. The performance will take place right after our June recital. I have been working on this project for the past 2 years and am excited to finally get it moving. If all goes well our former Greatest Showman production piece will be the performance. I will be having a preliminary meeting to go over basic details for dancers and families who are interested. The studio needs to audition to be accepted and I can only submit 365 days out so a lot is happening for me in the next few weeks. Attending the meeting is for information and planning purposes, but Disney is requiring a minimum number of dancers for the opportunity. As is always the case, I will be discussing lodging, transportation. tickets etc.... at this meeting. In addition and for the purposes of planning with our younger dancers....Disney does have an age limit to the performance as dancers must be 7 at the time of the performance. This is a studio event open to current dancers, teachers and alumni who would like to participate so come to the meeting to learn more. If you are interested, please let me know as I am putting together a interest list.
and finally - Summer classes are posted on line. You can take a day a week or the month, the July schedule is designed to be flexible. Payment is based on our current rates with no registration fee and enrollment my not reflect your actual account. Please let me know if you have any issues.
I think that is all for now. I know it is a lot but keeping the messages to once a week is the best way for me to communicate with all of our families. Brownie points for this week if anyone knows over how many times I have been to Walt Disney World.
Please let me know what I have missed and if you need anything, thank you kindly,
Hello Dancers and Families:
Welcome back from break! There is a lot of information this week so I apologize in advance for the lengthy message, but please know this is the best way for me to reach everyone all at once.
Angles Team Rehearsal this Saturday 9-12:00. I will be giving out tickets and final instructions this day. In addition, for those who can make it, I would like to add a pick up rehearsal on Monday, April 17 from 7:30-8:30 for dancers who are available. Thank you in advance.
Due to circumstances beyond my control, I need to make the following adjustments to our calendar:
Picture days on April 28 and 29 will be postponed to a later date... Mr. Steve has had a death in his family and he needs to attend to services at this time. I will reschedule to perhaps summer when everyone has more time. In addition, our costumes should all be in too! Also,,,,, On the...... here we go again scene...... I am told that the parking lot will now be paved and parking spots marked on Saturday May 6th. As is the case Saturday classes on May 6th, will be cancelled- the 10:00 ballet and the 11:00 Tap. Dancers, consider joining my ballet I class on a Monday at 3:30 for a make up.
MORE: Mom's, This message is for you! Want to dance on stage in our recital? and not with your dancers... I am looking to try something new this season...... If you are interested in performing let me know by April 22- and I will put a brief rehearsal schedule for a 1-2 minute piece. ALL are welcome and no experience needed!
and still more: June recital performers, for the purposes of planning I am finishing up the recital show orders and cast list, including dress rehearsal and ticket information, I should have it out soon.
and lastly: Sign up now for summer classes, tuition is based off of hours, 4 hours is $70.00. Dancers can take a class, a week or mix and match days, flexibility is key. If you need help ask me or your dancers teacher, and due to our short summer season please note classes may be combined for enrollment purposes. If you don't see a class on the July schedule, don't worry, our tap classes and several others will be back when fall starts in August.
Please let me know what I have forgot and thank you for reading. Lion King performers, if you did not get a previous message let me know and speaking of Lion King... what animal do I have at home? Do you know?
See you all soon or sooner,
