Dancer of the Month & Visitation Week!

Don't forget that our yearly visitation week runs Saturday, 12/15 - Thursday 12/20. Our company holiday party/rehearsal is Thursday 12/20 from 5 -8, so there is no visitation at the main studio that night. Our 789s will have it in the mini studio.

Our holiday break runs Friday, 12/21 = Friday, 1/4, with classes resuming as usual on Saturday, 1/5. Make sure that your 1st semester account balance is PAID IN FULL by 12/20 so that your dancer can return for our 2nd semester in January! 

We hope you all have an amazing holiday break, and we can't wait to see you in 2019!

2018 - 2019 Audition Results

After much deliberation, we are excited to announce our placements for our 2018 - 2019 season. We would like to thank you all for coming out for a dance company for our 16th season of dance! This was truly a record year for our auditions with a total of 84 dancers auditioning! We can’t thank you enough for being such a special part of the studio. You all did a great job, and we truly appreciate your dedication and hard work. We are very proud of each and every one of you. We are so excited about this next dance season, and we feel confident that we have place you appropriately to compliment your ability levels. Please trust us in our decision and we will definitely have a great year! Please remember that these decisions are final. Please do not call in attempt to change the results. If we feel that any placements need to be changed, we will approach the dancer after a few weeks of class. We have saw so much improvement in all of you over this past season, and we can't wait to keep pushing you and seeing your technique grow and mature over this next season. 

We will be updating your accounts asap to reflect audition results as well as the add on classes you will be taking. If you have set up your online account, as soon as that is done you'll be able to pay your remaining September balance at that time or at the studio starting on the 10th. Remember that you've already paid a non-refundable $130 tuition fee at registration that will go toward your September tuition! Thank you again for auditioning, and we will see you the week of September 10th!


Sincerely,
Dede & Lindsay
