LIGHTS, CAMERA, DANCIN'
February and March News
The Start of 2016
We hope 2016 is treating all of you well! We also hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday break, but most importantly, all the instructors and staff at Lights, Camera, Dancin’ would like to THANK YOU for their Christmas gifts! We truly appreciate your generosity and kindness. Thanks again for remembering all of us!!!
As a friendly reminder, we do not have dance room parties that take a portion of classroom time for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, or Easter. If you still would like to bring a treat for any of the above 3 holidays, you can, but you will have to pass out treats after class. We love Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter, but all of our classes are getting ready for the Recital and classroom time is so important! Thank you for understanding!
Want some extra cash in your pocket???
One Stop Dance Shop and Recital Requirements
Recital! Recital! Recital!
The recital is like a dancer’s super bowl! Every dancer works so soo sooo hard all year and the recital is their time to show you what they’ve learned and how much they’ve improved! For those of you who were with us for the last dance recital and responded to our 'Recital Feedback' email, we really appreciate your input!
The instructors are beginning to select their costumes for each class. You will begin to notice the instructors beginning their dances over the next few months. It’s an exciting time of the year! Please make sure your dancer has the required shoes for their Recital dance both style and color. Thank you!
Moms' and Dads' Dance
Lights, Camera, Dancin’ is proud to offer a Moms' and Dads' dance in our dance recital! We would be absolutely thrilled to have you join us! There will be a sign-up sheet at the front desk after Spring Break. If you are seriously interested, please put your name, cell phone number and email address. If this is something you'd be interested in, please sign-up by Saturday, April 16th. Each parent group will have separate dances or one dance together depending on the amount of participants. There will be roughly 5-10 practices (give or take a couple) on mostly weekends during May and June. There could be a cost depending on the costume, etc. but the actual learning the dance is free! Yes, they are referred to as “The Dads’ Dance” and “The Moms’ Dance” but dancers are not limited to asking only Mom or Dad…Uncle, Cousin, Grandparents, Step Parents, Brother, Sister, etc. as long as they are 18 or older. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me, thanks and I'm looking forward to working with you!
Keep Our Studio Clean
Please also remind your dancer to put wet shoes and boots on the black plastic boot trays in back by the cubbies-not in the cubbies when it's snowing or wet outside. Please also keep all street shoes (wet or dry) out of the dance rooms and off of the dance floors. Thank you!
Action Dance Crew
Our dance team is running a BIG FUND RAISER and we need your junk! By donating gently-used clothing, shoes, accessories, book, linens, and small household items (no furniture), you can help raise funds for the dance teams travel costs to Nationals this summer. We get paid for every pound of goods donated! It takes about 400 bags (13-gallon size) to equal $1000. The more bags we collect the more money the team earns towards Nationals. Don’t wait until Drive Day to gather up your goods. The best way to ensure a successful drive it to start collecting before the actual donation day. We welcome: clothing, shoes, accessories, handbags, books, linens, and small household items (no furniture). Let’s get together and stuff that truck! Collection day is February 6th from 12-3pm! Please keep what you've collected at your own home until the drop off February 6th! Thank you for your support!
