Volunteer Opportunity!
Greetings to all,

The Salvation Army is in need of bell-ringers for this holiday season.  It is a great opportunity to volunteer a little time to an organization that helps so many people in our community!

Below is the schedule for time slots that have been secured at different locations.  The time slots are in 2 hour increments but you don't have to do it all.  You can do thirty minutes and pass the bell! 

If you are interested in joining this volunteer campaign, please respond with the date and amount of time you can give and I will then tell you the location of your assignment.

Please contact Neena Frederick at (660) 422-4304 to sign up.

Thank you in advance for your valuable time and giving heart,

Dedra Thomas,
Salvation Army Board Member and Volunteer

Don Mirault Session Information!
Hi everyone!

Congratulations on a beautiful Nutcracker! I watched from the audience on Saturday and you all were fabulous! What a perfect start to the holiday season! 

Thank you all so much for being patient with me as I've been working out the best possible schedule for everyone to have an amazing weekend with Mr. Don!

Below you will find the group schedules for the weekend in a block by themselves as well as a schedule that includes the times for ALL sessions: solos/ duets and trios included! 

Please have your dancer at the studio and ready to go 10 minutes PRIOR to the time listed (in case we run early, which we often do).  Dancers should wear all black and have hair up.

Thank you and see you soon!
