November 2016 Newsletter

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 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 24 – Thanksgiving Holiday! No Classes!
  • December 1 – Costume Fees Due. (See paragraph below)
  • December 23-January 2 – Christmas! No Classes! Happy Holidays!
  • January 3 – Normal classes resume.

Costume fees!
Also, please be prepared to finish paying off costume fees. You will notice on your envelopes that there is mention of the costume fee. The deadline this year is our Christmas break but ideally you should pay before that. This date was stated in our studio polices so look back and check that out. The balance due is $40 (per costume) if you already paid your $45 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.

Studio T-Shirts!
Over the next few weeks, we will be debuting designs for new studio t-shirts.  These designs will be available to order but we need sizes and a committed number (at least 12) to make the order.  So be sure to check out our Facebook to see the designs and tell us what you like.  There will be designs targeted to both dancers and parents.  T-shirts will be between $15-20 depending on the design.

If you haven’t heard or noticed yet, one of our teachers recently tied the knot.  Miss Rebecca Norris is now Mrs. Rebecca Retherford.  She and her new husband Doyle got hitched on October 8 amidst Hurricane Matthew.  Be sure to congratulate her when you have the chance!
