May Newsletter

Thank you so much for all the hard work you’ve put in and for helping make our 2016 recital a success! We had so much fun but we wanted to be sure you knew of a few more things before summer begins.

RECITAL DVDs
We are already hard at work on editing Saturday’s performance to put on DVD. If you are interested in purchasing a copy you can reply to this email and let us know whether you would like one recital ($10 – specify which one) or both ($15). We will hopefully have copies available as early as this weekend for Springfest. Money will be due upon receipt of DVD.

Almost There!!!
Well, we really only have a month left before the recital!  And with it so close there are a lot of things you and your child should remember.  So read on and check out what’s coming up.  Pay close attention to each item so that your family can be up to date on payments, costumes, and other important info.

Fees!
With the dance year winding down, it’s important to remember that there is still a lot of work to be done and lots of costs to be covered.  We ask that you please be aware of your child’s fees so that we can cover costs of costumes, paying the teachers, renting the auditorium and most importantly, keeping things working at the studio itself.  Remember, the recital fee is important because it is one $25 fee paid per family in order to help us pay for the rental of the auditorium.  And with it paid, we won’t be charging admission at the door.  You can bring your parents, grandparents, all your family, & friends.  So for your convenience, we hope you’ll see the importance of it and the other fees.  Thanks!  Remember, Clogging Team members do not pay recital fee.

Costumes!
Over the past few weeks, costumes have been given out during most of our classes.  We hope everyone is excited about the costumes but we ask that you check with your child’s teacher to make sure you have all the accessories and in case there are any special circumstances for the class & costume including how their hair should be fixed.  We also have tights for those that need them.  Please see Miss Mitzi or Miss Nancy!

Recital Pictures!!!
Like last year we will be doing all our recital pictures on 1 day.  We want to let everyone know early enough so you can plan to be here at the studio.  We will do group pictures for each class and also have the option for individual pictures if you would like to sign up for them.  Pictures will be held on April 23 (the weekend before the recital) and will be done by Tommy Penny who has been taking our pictures for some time now.  Please mark your calendar so we can have everyone available for the photos.  Picture options and a specific schedule will be released soon!

Calendar!
–         March 21-25    – Spring Break
–         April 23            – Studio Picture Date
–         April 29            – Recital Rehearsal

Recital Tickets!
A reminder about Recital Tickets, which will be given out soon!  We are having 2 spring recitals.  The first recital will be for our younger dancers while the second will be for the older ones and both will be held on the same evening.  Each family will get 6 tickets to their child’s recital (if you have dancers in both, you get tickets to both).  When seating begins, those ticket holders will seat first and after everyone with a ticket is seated, general admission will begin for others.  Once the younger recital is finished, the auditorium will be cleared and the process will begin again for the second recital.  We hope this will help eliminate a seating problem.  You will not receive your tickets if your fees have not been paid!

Springfest!
For those of you not familiar with Pender County Springfest it is a wonderful festival that takes place on the town square.  We normally select several classes to perform.  It will be announced to the classes whether or not they are picked to participate.

Recital T-Shirts!
As in years past, Cripple Creek will be ordering t-shirts for our recital.  Each shirt will have the theme from the recital on the front and a list of all our dancers on the back.  If you would like to get one for yourself or your child the shirts are $16 (Adult XL+ are $18) and need to be pre-ordered very soon!  Our deadline is April 14!  After that is too late so be sure to let Mitzi know if you are interested so that we can make sure to order one in your size!
