Hi Everyone! We are having the best time teaching all of your sweet dancers! 
Here is what is going on in November & December.  
Quick Reminders:
  • No Dance Classes The Week Of Thanksgiving!
  • October Tuition is PAST DUE! November Tuition is DUE NOW!

Miss Kendra
Last week, we received an email from the City of Spanish Fort stating that the Spirit of Christmas Parade is being moved to a 7 PM time slot on December 7th. We have so many little dancers participating in the Christmas parade, we feel it is not in our best interest to participate in a parade this late in the evening.

WE ARE TRYING SOMETHING NEW THIS YEAR! We will be participating in the 31st Annual Dauphin Island Christmas Parade! The parade is also on December 7th and starts at 11 am.
All children of all ages are invited to participate, even our tiniest dancers. Moms of young dancers will need to walk or ride.

We will decorate a trailer for the little ones and our older dancers will walk and dance.

I am extending the deadline until next Tuesday, November 12th for Christmas shirt orders.
If you purchased a shirt and you do not wish for your child to participate and do not want the Christmas shirt, we understand, please email me. We can put your shirt order money towards whatever you would like, refund you.
Just a reminder, your child's costume will cost $75 and is due no later than November 22. The studio is closed the week of Thanksgiving. There is a $25 late fee starting December 1. Costume checks must be written separately from tuition and must be paid by check, money order or cash. 
There is NO PayPal option for costumes until December 1st.
There are no costume refunds, if you decide to withdraw your child from our program, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU WILL FORFEIT THEM.
If your child is not planning on participating in our annual recital, we will need written notice by December 10th. Without written notice, you will be responsible for all recital, costume and late fees.
Tuition is due the  1st class of each month, late after the 10th! You can pay online each month, or send a check to PO BOX 8141, Mobile, AL 36689.  For your convenience we have added semester and yearly payment option as well.
 Tuition does not include a recital costume. You will not receive a monthly invoice. After the 10th, a $15 late fee per month will be applied. Please make sure you pay on time each month to avoid late fees. 
If you have not paid your tuition, please pay before the first dance class.
Parent Responsibilities & Communication
It is the responsibility of the parents to be aware of all dance studio activities, such as recitals, opening or closings, and picture days. When public and private schools close due to weather, the studio will also close. Dance classes will resume when school resumes. The studio notices are posted on the website, in our newsletter and in your email. We also post to Facebook! Please notify us if your address, e-mail address, or telephone number has changed. We work hard to make the dance experience organized and fun. Keeping you informed is one of our primary goals. Please read all newsletters and other dance class information. The studios primary method of communication with parents is via e-mail. If you are not receiving any e-mails from the us, then please contact us to ensure your current e-mail address is on file. Additionally, please add the studio e-mail address mobilebaydanceacademy@comcast.net to your e-mail contact list so that all communications will display in your e-mail Inbox and not a spam folder. ***Please Note: While all of our student/parent concerns or questions are important to us, we ask that you respect our staff's personal time and not contact them via Text or Facebook messenger. You may email us at any time!

Reminders & Upcoming Dates
No Parents or Visitors in Dance Class
No Parents or visitors are allowed in the dance classroom. Dancers are more focused and perform better with less people in the room. Dance is also about learning independence. You will see your dancer grow so much in confidence from their dance 
classes. If your child is feeling anxious about being in class without you, you can help by explaining to your child that they can show you what they learned after class.
