Dear Academy parents and dancers,

We encourage you to take time to read the newsletter and also check the bulletin boards in the lobby each week. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Thank you for choosing the Academy for your child's dance education and for supporting quality dance in our community.

Observation Week!
October 15th - 20th
Don't miss out on visiting your child's dance class!

Family and friends are invited to "sit in" class during Observation week to see "up close" what your dancer has been learning and to find out more about what is in store.

Make sure to bring a chair or be prepared to sit on the floor. We ask that you leave younger children at home so that you can fully appreciated your child's accomplishments.

...and a few reminders...

  • The Academy is a "Junk Food Free Zone"! We encourage our dancers to snack on healthy non-processed foods like cut up veggies or fruit, nuts and seeds, whole grains and hydrate with water. Help your dancer be their best by providing them with healthy snack choices.

  • If your dancer is in the last class of the day please make sure you are ready to pick them up on time.

  • Dancers: help keep our studios clean and neat by putting water bottles, band-aids and tape in the trash. Take home your reusable water bottles; we will throw all bottles, food containers etc out every 2 to 3 days.

  • Parents: if you are waiting in the lobby with your dancer's siblings, please have the courtesy to pick up after them and make sure snacking takes place outside on the picnic tables. Thank you for helping us keep the Academy clean!
