Production Auditions…What is Production? As you may know, we have a special production dance at the end of the recital every year. The production is made up of several small dances that have the same theme as well as a dance that includes everyone in the production. It’s like a Grand Finale! Last year we had over 60 dancers!!! Rehearsals are fun and a great bonding experience for the dancers. On the last day of rehearsals we even hand out paper plate awards to each other! (a tradition that started over 15 years ago!) Production will be in the Saturday, June 13th 5pm AND Sunday, June 14th 5:30pm Recital. It is mandatory that your dancer performs in BOTH SHOWS in order to perform in the production dance.
Students perform a production which is a big dance number at the end of the recital (kind of like a finale). Students in Level I classes and up are able to participate in our Production. Production Auditions are Monday, March 30 4:30-5:30PM. Below are tentative rehearsal days, we promise it will NOT be during your dancers class time. Your child will only have to attend the below rehearsal day/time ONCE (possibly twice) a week. Rehearsals will begin on Monday, April 6th. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT AUDITIONS!
DXC…Please wish our company dancers luck while we gear up for our next competitions of the season: DANCERS INC in Manahwakin NJ and TURN IT UP in Seacaucus NJ. Results from out last competition are posted. We are very excited for our next competition! We know these dancers will do a phenomenal job!
Summer Classes…ONE DAY ONLY SUPER EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION FOR SUMMER CLASSES & CAMPS is MARCH 13TH!!! Not only do you receive the opportunity to enroll in classes before the general public, but you also receive an extra $10 off summer camps/classes! (Limit one per dancer and must register for entire 8 week session or full camp). Class space is limited so please sign up early! If you did not receive your summer schedule copy during parent observation week, we have schedules in the lobby for you to take home. Dancers who attend summer programs tend to keep or increase their flexibility, solidify and enhance dance techniques and also keep their muscle memory working in good condition! Dancers also get a “leg up” on the next level when taking Summer classes and camps. We’ve already started planning our lessons and choreo for these camps! So exciting!
We’d like to wish our Pisces: Miss Mea (3/15) and Miss Bridget (3/27) a very Happy Birthday!
Happy St Patricks Day and Happy Spring!!!
We hope this month brings you much luck, love and warmer weather!
