May 2023 Darby's Dancers Newsletter
As the 2022-23 dance season comes to a close, we would like to THANK all of our dance families for allowing us to work with your children! We appreciate the opportunity and we sincerely hope that your dancer has had a fun and successful year.

We hope to see our dancers return this summer and/or fall! Our Darby's Dancers Summer Schedule is available (see link at the bottom of this newsletter). The schedule for next season will be available later this summer and will be sent to current and prospective dancers.

We have been busy preparing all the WDC dancers for our 28th annual recital- “Ready, Set, Dance!” and we hope you are excited to see them perform!
Be sure to pay close attention to emails coming from WDC in the upcoming weeks. We will send important reminders and information regarding rehearsals and recitals.
Currently, tickets are available for all shows and can be purchased at the Front Desk. Those families that ordered tickets prior to the Tickets Drawing deadline can pick up tickets beginning Friday, May 5th.

Recital T-Shirts: Dancers that pre-ordered a recital t-shirt can pick them up at the front desk beginning Mon, May 1st. A limited number of T-shirts are available for purchase.

Recital Video Reminder: We are excited to offer an all-digital, on-line recital video experience. All 2023 recital dances will be shot and edited in beautiful High-Definition and will be made available to each paid ticket holder from each show. No need to worry about ordering a DVD – or sneaking an iPhone video during the show. We’ve made it easy for you!
We will send dance families the link to view performances from their show(s)*.
*Show links will be sent out by July 5th.

FlashDrives -- Creative Edge also offers the option for parents to order flash drives with a digital copy of their dancer's routine(s). See their website HERE for more information and to order online.

If you have any questions, refer to the Recital page on the WDC website or give us a call!

We are excited to see our dancers hit the stage!
