Welcome to Cripple Creek!

Below is a copy of our November newsletter.  For a list of our studio policies, click on the policies link on the menu above.

Autumn Greetings!!!
As the year continues and we begin to really settle in with classes, we like to keep you up to date on what’s happening around the studio. With holidays fast approaching we hope everyone checks out our schedule and marks it on their calendars. We have a few reminders to help keep you aware so you and your child will be all set for recital time after the holiday season. Read on and keep this newsletter handy so you don’t forget.

Monthly Fees!
We understand that with holidays just around the corner money can be tight, but we need you to stay up to date on your child’s fees. We have some folks who are behind on monthly fees and some that still haven’t paid costume deposits that were due at the beginning of the year. Remember, in our studio policies it states that we can have your child sit out of dance class because their fees are not up to date. We ask that you please be aware of your fees and get them paid as soon as possible.

Rehearsal CD’s!
If your child needs some dancing music, let us know. We’re happy to make a rehearsal CD for you and your child so that they have music to practice with outside of class. We can provide a warm-up song as well as the music they normally dance to in class. As recital gets closer we can also provide you with their performance song! CD’s are $5. See your teacher or Mitzi!


  • November 27 – Thanksgiving Holiday! No Classes!
  • December 1 – Costume Fees Due. (See article)
  • December 19-January 4 – Christmas! No Classes! Happy Holidays!
  • January 5 – Normal classes resume.

Costume fees!
Also, please be prepared to finish paying off costume fees. You will notice the fee has been added to your monthly envelope. The deadline this year is December 1 but you should pay on or before that date. This date was set in our studio polices so look back and check that out. The balance due is $40 (per costume) if you already paid your $40 at registration. Check with Mitzi for your total fee. These fees must be paid in order for us to pre-order the costumes by Christmas. The sooner you pay, the sooner we can order and make sure we have all the orders in with sufficient time to get costumes here by recital time.

Adult Classes
We had a few people that expressed interest in some different adult classes like Zumba & Pilates but not enough to put together a full class.  We are still very willing to organize something but each class must have at least 6 participants signed up. So if you are interested, please let us know so we can make these classes available for you.  Thanks!

Cloggers Concert!
In case you haven’t heard, the Cripple Creek Clogging Team is going to be putting on a show at Thalian Hall in downtown Wilmington. This concert is called “An American Tradition” and it celebrates both traditional and contemporary clogging.  We are very excited about this and hope that everyone will come and check it out.  For information, ask one of our teachers at the studio or Miss Mitzi in the front office.  For tickets you can call the Thalian Hall Center Box Office at (910) 632-2285 or go online at Come support the cloggers and help cheer them on as we start a new tradition.

A New Dancer is Born!!!
We are so proud to announce the arrival of another member of our Cripple Creek family!  Brandon and Brittany Norris who have both been dancers at Cripple Creek for many years welcomed another baby boy into the world on October 6.  Owen Dale Norris was born at 3:53PM and weighed 8lbs 12oz and is 19 inches long.  We would like to say congratulations to Brandon, Brittany, Landon and Owen and we can’t wait to see Owen dancing all over the studio just like his parents and older brother!
