Good Afternoon Dancers and Families:
I hope everyone is having a great back to school week! It's been wonderful catching up with everyone who has returned from vacation.
Here is the news of the week so please read carefully and as always, let me know what I have missed or if you need anything. Remember to keep reading your Wednesday weekly emails as is the way I best communicate our studio events and activities to all of families.
* Reminder we are closed next week for Back To School/Labor Day Recess, from Monday, August 29- Monday, September 5th.
* Dance The Magic Dancers, there are no new updates this week, just a reminder the final payment is due on September 1. If your dancer's account is on auto-pay, thank you in advance, as I will process the payment for you. If you have any questions just let me know, and thank you to the families who have taken care of this obligation already.
* September is already starting to be a busy month! Dream Team participation forms for our outreach team are due by the 9th and attached to this email. This group is open to anyone enrolled in any level one or above class. Likewise, attached to this message is the registration form for the Sunday, one day dance convention in Irvine taking place on Sunday, October 23. I suggest this for our junior, teen and senior dancers in a level 2 class or up. In attendance and teaching at this event is Alex Wong, who I am excited to meet. He was a featured dancer in the Greatest Showman! If you have any questions or need help just ask me or your child's teacher. Parents need not stay for the convention, drop your dancer off and go. Several Dance Works staff members will be available to assist your child this day.
* More: Auditions for soloists for the Little Mermaid will take place on Saturday, September 17th. Ballet dancers need to be in level 2 - 12-1:00 and Level 3 and up 12-2:00. $20.00. Forms are in the office.
*and still more: AN UPDATE ON THE UPSTAIRS AIR CONDITIONER! I have been told that the air conditioner upstairs is set to be replaced next week! I am hopeful upon our return from break we will be new and improved. The delay involves getting a crane to put the unit on the roof so it takes some time. Thank you for your patience while we do our best to keep everyone comfortable during this heat wave.
* and yet there is more: Mark your calendars now!
