Costume Measurements

It's hard to believe it but we are a 3rd of the way through the dance year, and it's time to start thinking about the recital. Miss Carrie will order costumes at the beginning of December. In order to ensure proper costume fit, students will be measured during their classes this month.

Costume Orders

Costumes for all students dancing in the annual recital will be ordered at the beginning of December. Costumes are non-refundable and non-returnable. If your child will not be participating in the annual recital, please let Miss Carrie know by December 1st. 

Families are responsible for their entire costume bill even if their child withdraws from classes between December and June.

Student Drop-Off & Pick-Up
We understand everyone's schedule is hectic, but please do your best to drop off dancers on time for classes.  Students who are late to class miss out on valuable warm-up time.  Warming up muscles properly prevents injuries.  Students who are more than 15 minutes late to class may be asked to sit and observe for their safety. 

For their safety, we do not allow students to wait outside for parents. Please come into the studio to pick-up your children after class. It is getting dark earlier now and we are concerned about the safety of children walking through the busy parking lot, or waiting outside for rides.  Please SLOW DOWN when driving through our parking lot. Between classes there are many pedestrians walking in and out of the building. For everyone's safety, please use caution when driving in the parking lot.

 

Also, please DO NOT ENTER using the unpaved one lane driveway.  This is the drive that borders the Running Brook Farms property.  This is an EXIT ONLY.  Please enter the main PAVED entrance that is closest to the dance shop on the left side of the building.  You can drive around the back this way and exit out the unpaved driveway on the right side of the building.

 

The Dance Corner closes promptly at 8:30pm Monday- Thursday, 7pm Friday and 12pm Saturday.  

Please be considerate to our staff and arrive on time to pick up your dancer at the end of the class day.  

 

Thank you.

 

Recital Dates 

Our annual recital will be held at the Haddam Killingworth High School on 5/30 & 5/31 2015. All classes will not dance on both days. The schedule of which classes perform in each show will be distributed in February. There will be 1 onstage rehearsal on Friday, 5/29. Classes will be assigned to specific times on that rehearsal night. This schedule will be distributed in early May. All Pre-Stars and Twinkle Twos classes will perform in the Shining Stars Showcase at 12pm on Sunday, May 31st.  These classes will only perform in the Showcase, not the recital.   Click here to view and print the entire Dance Corner Calendar. 

 
Thanksgiving Food Drive 

As we enter the Holiday season, it is important to remember that there are many families who can not afford many of the things that we take for granted. During the month of November The Dance Corner will be holding a food drive to benefit The Shoreline Soup Kitchens.

Miss Carrie and The Dance Corner staff are asking that all students bring a non-perishable food item to class between November 3rd & November 22nd. The collected food will be donated to The Shoreline Soup Kitchens to help feed needy families this holiday season. Your contributions are very much appreciated, and this year they specified that they need everything!.


 

The most needed items include: Juice, SPAM, tuna, peanut butter, low sodium soup, canned fruit, oatmeal, breakfast cereal, beef stew, rice, pasta, beans, and canned meat.

Their Holiday needs are: Boxed pie crust, canned pie filling, nuts, baking supplies, and spices.

Non- food items are also needed: "Green" grocery bags, paper or plastic grocery bags, rubber gloves, Ziploc bags, cleaning products, garbage bags, food store gift cards, grocery shopping carts, and paper plates, forks, knives, spoons, and hot/cold cups.
