1 Day Bus Trip to New York
JOIN US for a day trip to NYC on: 
 
Sa turday, November 24th
 
Have you ever been to NYC over the holidays? You won't want to miss this chance, do a little sightseeing, take in a show, do some shopping! The day is yours to do as you wish.
 
Cost $60 per person
Sign up at front desk, payment is collected at sign up.
 

Share Box
Reminder there is a "Share Box" at the far end of the lobby outside of studio 4, the black box theater.
 
We ask our students to fill out the paper in front of the box with things they feel 24/7 staff need to know. Then place the paper inside the locked box. You may share anonymously or place your name on the paper.
 
Please feel free to use this box to share compliments, report bullying, etc.
 
For more serious issues, it is always best to speak personally with the Ms. Gina.


It's That Time of Year
To stay healthy, please remind students to wash their hands frequently and dress warmly before they leave. Their bodies may be warm but it's important to bundle up before going into the cold air.
 
Please, if your child is sick or has a fever, just give us a call to let us know they will not be in class and let them stay home. Your child can always make up the class in another class when they are feeling better. The teachers, other students, and parents will be most appreciative.
Thank you.

Reminders
The studio will be closed November 21-25.

PARENTS and STUDENTS please make every effort to be 10 minutes early for your class.

PARENTS - Please be on time picking up your children after class.

The back counters, in the kitchen area, are for dancers to eat and do homework. Please keep that area free for the dancers.

We hope everyone is adjusting to the new parking procedures. Remember you may drop your child off at the curb and pick them up at the curb when they come out. Do not idle at the curb and always walk little ones in and out of the building.

ONLY wear dance shoes IN the studio and NEVER outside.

Please make sure all young students use the bathroom BEFORE coming to class.

We can't believe the holidays are almost here! As the colder months approach we want to remind you of a few tips for dance classes:
 
*Please wear a jacket when leaving dance class. Your muscles are more vulnerable to injury when they are cooled down too quickly.
 
*In the winter months we sometimes forget the importance of hydrating so please bring and drink your water. Take a water bottle to class to stay hydrated.
 
*Remember everyone learns to dance at different speeds. Don't compare yourself to others in your class. Your journey is your own. Ask questions if you are unclear about a step.
 
*Do your best, smile, and have fun.

Thank you to everyone for having patience while we tried to figure out a new parking lot procedure to ensure safety. We are very pleased with the new system. Reminder to please not STOP in the crosswalk so our walkers can get across safely.
 
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Anti-Bullying Week. We had a great week learning how to stand up, speak out and be a friend to others; how to be a buddy and not a bully. A huge thank you to all of you for choosing us as the Best of the Best for the 4th year in a row!
 
Please read the information below on costumes, Parent Observation Week, and more.
 
 
From my home to yours, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, we have so much to be thankful for.
 
Warm Wishes,
Gina Korrell
Artistic Director

Attire Compliance
We are well into the 2018/2019 dance season! We are so happy you are with 24/7. We are asking that all students be in compliance with our attire policy by November 26. The attire required is below.

Students not in compliance may be asked to sit and watch class. We thank you for your cooperation.

PARENT OBSERVATION WEEK
Parent Observation Week is Monday, November 12 - Saturday, November 17th. During this special week, 2 observers are invited to come
into the classroom and observe. Siblings under 5 are not permitted into the class and may not be left unattended in the lobby. Please make other arrangements for them so you won't miss this special day with your dancer. Video cameras and non-flash photography are encouraged.
 
During Parent Observation Week you will also get to see a picture of your dancer's class recital costume selected by their teacher. The cost for each class costume is listed in this newsletter.
 
Please come see the skills your dancer has been working on. They will be very excited and proud to show you what they have learned.

Holiday Spectacular Show!
Recital Costumes
The end of the year recitals will be June 1st and 2nd at costumes2 the Weinberg Center. We have been busy measuring students for recital costumes. You will receive a Costume Confirmation Card before the Thanksgiving Break. We ask that each parent check the costume confirmation card and ONLY return the card if there are any changes or questions regarding the size of the costume. Otherwise we will assume that you agree with the size the computer has assigned based on your child's measurements. Note that we look carefully at the assigned sizes. Since we order five months in advance and you know your child best, please make us aware of any concerns. It is much easier to have a costume taken in than have it be too small. Parents will also receive an email picture of the costume to share with your family.
 
All costumes are charged automatically December 1 in place of tuition. If you have multiple costumes and would like to make a payment ahead of time so that December's payment is more manageable, please contact the front desk and we can help you. If you paid in full, please stop by the front desk to make sure the costume is paid for by December 1. No costumes will be ordered without payment and a $25 late fee will be charged after the 7th. If a costume must be ordered individually, due to late payment, we will also assess an additional $25 shipping fee.
 
Recital Costume prices are as follows:
 
Creative Movement, Intro to Dance, Pre-Dance 1&2, and Combo 1 Classes........................................................$70
 
Combo 2 Classes........................................................$80
 
Elementary & Mini Movers Hip Hop Classes..............$85
 
Pre-Teen Classes........................................................$90
 
Musical Theater, Teen, and Adult Classes..................$95
 
Additional fee for all Child XL & Adult XL sizes......................$8

Ambassador's Message
This month at 24/7 we will be holding a food drive for our local food bank. We would love to collect as many canned goods and non perishable food items as we can, to give back before Thanksgiving! We also have a special Veterans Day project for our students. There will be cards at the front desk for your kids to write a note to a Veteran on. Then turn them into the front desk and we will mail them off! Just a friendly reminder to keep washing your hands frequently; it is flu season and we want all of our students to stay healthy! Sydney Winkler, Ambassadors

Time to Celebrate!


Wishing all of our Dance Families a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
From your 24/7 Family
