CSDA February 2023 Newsletter
Happy Valentine's Day!
February 8th - 14th is wear RED/PINK or Valentine inspired clothing to class!
Please be mindful of your shoes! Outside shoes are not allowed in the dance room. It tracks in sand and salt that degrades the floor. It also is very uncomfortable for our dancers that do floor work during class. Your outdoor shoes can be placed in the black bucket by the dance room door with the rest of your belongings.
Please drive slow during drop off and pick up, especially this time of year when it is darker earlier. If you have siblings and or family members that drive dancers to and from please remind them as well.
We are excited to announce that our 40 years of Dreaming Together Recital will be back in our home theater at Cape Cod Community College! Our Recital Site for 2023 is live! This is the home of all things recital information. The Recital Site gets updated frequently throughout the spring with the most current info. Have questions about the Recital? Check the recital site!
All families click here for our Award Year Form! If you have more than one child dancing with us, please fill out the form for each dancer. Form is due by March 27th to receive recognition at the recital and in the program.
Viewing, Illness & Weather Policy
Costumes are continuously coming in, yay! This means if we have dancers trying on costumes, zoom will be off for privacy.
For illnesses, please follow the same policy as schools. If your child is not feeling well or has been exposed to an illness, please stay home. Make up classes are available.
The best way to report your dancer's absence is by logging it in your parent portal under attendance.
Curious if there is class due to the weather?!
We will cancel class due to weather 2 hours prior to opening.
Example: If the studio opens for the day at 4pm we will send out the cancellation around 2pm. If we don't post a cancellation that means We Are Open!
The studio may be open even if school is cancelled.
All cancellations will be posted on our website cancellation page, public & private Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, studio telephones and emailed to you. If you haven't already, please join our private studio members Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CSDAStudioMembers
