This is our last Newsletter in 2022. Classes are working well together and it thrills us to see dancers progress as we present new technique, combinations and routines. We know what direction we are going; now we have to go at the same time to the same beat on the same foot. Lots of hard work lies ahead and we will do it!!
Tuesday, December 20 - Thursday, January 5. Last class December 19. First class back Friday, January 6, 2023.
WEATHER OR NOT?
If we do have inclement weather (lots of snow, black ice) in the next few months, the best way to check to see if the studio is open is by checking this web site.

We have many classes this year with out standing attendance. It is wonderful for class progress and so much easier to do costume measuring when there is a body to measure and we don’t have to guess. After Christmas Break – please, let’s keep up the great work. (Thank you Parents ~ we have a feeling you are behind this success story.)
Costume orders have been placed. By the end of January we will have some confirmations along with a photos of class costumes. When are Recital costumes handed out? We start the process in the new year as soon as we start to receive them. This gives us time to take care of alterations and make sure that we are all ready in time to hit the stage on May 5 & 6.
