The Dance Corner News: October 2016
Fall is here!  This is my favorite season in New England. I love the crisp fall air, stunning foliage.  Although I mourn the loss of those long summer days, I look forward to cozy evenings wrapped in a blanket by the fire with a mug of warm apple cider.  Autumn is the quintessential New England season.

Of course with the start of the fall comes school, and homework.  I have noticed many of our dancers sitting on the floor of the lobby between classes reading or doing homework.  I thought about how we could create a better work space for them.  Lobby space is limited, but after some thought, last week I removed the old water vending machine and decided to install a Homework bar in it's place!  Check our main studio lobby in the next week or two for our new homework bar!

If you are looking for water or a snack between classes, stop by the dance shop. We have cold water and coming soon some healthy snacks on sale too! What would you like to see us stock in our snack center?  Please let us know.

Our dance class season has gotten off to a roaring start, and we are not slowing down... This fall we are launching new programs and planning even more fun for our dancers! 

Coming this month....
Crawlers Club class, FREE for babies 8-13 months and a caregiver
Tummy Time class, FREE for infants to crawling with a caregiver
Wiggle Wednesday, a once-a-month free class for ages 18 months- 3 years with a caregiver
...and our super fun Halloween Dress Up Week!

Coming in November...
Bring a Friend Week
'Hamilton' Minimester
Turkey Day Dance performances for Twinkle Twos, Pre-Stars and Kinder-Stars
and more!

I hope you are enjoying your classes, making new friends and having fun!  If you have any concerns, please email, call me or just stop by my office in The Dance Shop.  There is no problem we can't solve, so please speak with me if ever you are not completely satisfied with your experience at TDC.

Don't Miss Your Chance to Dance in
  The Winter Follies!
Don't miss your chance to participate in our annual Toys For Tots toy drive and performance  at the Clinton Town Hall  on Saturday 12/10, with a dress rehearsal on Friday 12/9. Info on signing up to dance in the show will be emailed to families this month. This is an optional performance. Not all students participate and due to the size of the venue we can only include a limited number of dancers. 
Dancers must sign up to participate. 

Dancers must sign up to participate by OCTOBER 15th.
Dress Up Week, 10/24-10/29
  We celebrate Halloween at TDC 10/24- 10/29 with Dress Up Week!
During Dress Up week students are invited to wear Halloween costumes, old dance costumes or any fun  outfits instead of dance wear to classes.  Just be sure you can move freely in your dress up outfit.  

We are also looking for donations for our dress up bin. We know it's easy to forget a costume day, and we don't want any dancers to left out. If you have any old costume pieces that you would like to donate, you can bring them to our shop from 10/3-10/22.
We are Closed Halloween
Reminder:
There will be no classes held on Monday 10/31.
Happy Trick-or-Treating!
