November 2015 Newsletter

A Big Week is Coming Up!
From Monday October 26th - Thursday October 29th dancers are encouraged wear their Halloween costume to dance class AND Bring a Friend!   
Please no friends to Exam Preparation Classes (Competitive) OR Show Stopper's Musical Theatre (too much work to be done! - but they could come and WATCH Musical Theatre).
Every friend brought equals an entry into the Christmas Break Draw!
Halloween Lands on a Saturday this week! 
This means we've got some time to do something FUN! 
Jennifer Dodd will be at SDA with an amazing Halloween set, set up to take photos of your children in their Halloween Costumes!  ($5)
MaryJoy Cross will also be joining us with her fantastic FacePainting!  ($5) 
There will be a sign up sheet for Face Painting and Photos, so that your Trick or Treaters can dance and play instead of wait in line, so come EARLY to get on  the list before it fills up!   What a great way to cherish the memory of Halloween 2015!
Everyone is welcome - Dance Families or not - Toddlers, Big Kids, Teens, Parents! 
This Events takes place from 1-4pm at Sheridan Dance Academy!

Check out the rack of ALL NEW hoodies, pants, and jackets in the SDA lobby. And just in time for Christmas!  All items come with the SDA logo, and your dancer's name on the sleeve (if you want it).  Grab a form from the desk and we'll be sure to keep it a secret from your dancer :-)

This Holiday Season SDA is putting on an all NEW production! 
Show Stoppers Musical Theatre Presents:
One FROZEN Night
This show is just over one hour in length, so it's PERFECT for the younger crowd.  Tickets will be on sale mid November (we'll let you know once we have them). 
Friday December 11
th 6:30pm & Saturday December 12
th 2pm.  At the Max Cameron Theatre.
Ride Sharing ~ We had a mom with a GREAT idea a couple of weeks back!  Many parents have LOADS on the go (no kidding hey?!?) and sometimes you can't get your dancer to class, or home from class, as planned.  This brilliant Mom suggested we put together a bit of a calling list so that we can lean on one another, if needed.  We are a part of the Sheridan Dance Academy FAMILY right?? I LOVE IT!  So here's what we'll do ~ If you're keen to be on the list (you'll be able to ASK for help and GIVE help from time to time) reply to this email with your cell number (or best number to reach you at), the nights and times you normally drive to dance, as well as the area of town that you live in.  This way, we know if someone needs a ride they are only asking you when you're already going, and not asking you to drive way out of your way.  If your dancer does A LOT of classes, feel free to just reply with "I would like to be put on  the list" and we'll jot down the times your dancer is normally at the studio.  After all we want you to WANT to reply back to us - not make this too much trouble for you ;-)  I hope you'll consider getting involved.  This sounds like a great way to work together and be there for one another when life gets to be too much.  Thanks Lynn for bringing your idea forward!
Wednesday November 11 th there will be NO DANCE CLASSES.  
SDA will be  closed for Remembrance Day.

We could use 2-3 parent volunteers to join us for the full event + clean up, if anyone is willing to help out.
