Class Uniforms

Classes are in full swing and the time period for "gathering" your class uniform is over. In order for your dancer to be allowed in class they must be wearing the required uniform as outlined on the ALL STARS website. Follow this link to verify you have all the required pieces and you are familiar with how your dancer's hair should be done.
If your dancer arrives to class unprepared expect a call home for the necessary items needed to enter the classroom. Please stress the importance of the class uniform and being prepared. Thank you!

Suwanee Fest Parade is coming up on Saturday, September 20th.

This year's theme is "Heroes... Red, White, and You." As a part of this, we will all need to wear parade t-shirts. The price of the t-shirt is $12.99 (this includes tax), and will be required for participation in the parade.

Everyone to wear long black pants-- these can be jazz pants, yoga pants, sweatpants, dress pants... NO jeans, please :-) Shoes should be black.

* Parents wishing to walk along side us, must dress with any type shirt of the same color shirt as the dancers' color they are accompanying and long black pants and black shoes. Should you wish to also purchase a t-shirt for yourself, you may, but it is not required for parents (T-shirt colors will be assigned and announced, once all orders are in).

Dancers will be learning the parade choreography in their classes. Rock & Acting Academy students can attend any LM or Teen class to learn the choreography.*

*Rock Academy, Acting Academy and Dance students who do NOT wish to dance can have a walking part (we have 23 of these spots available). So, If you rather walk and not dance, please send me an email so that I can reserve your spot.

Very little ones (3-4 year olds) can ride in the pick-up truck.

***HELP ***
We are in need of 1 uniformed soldier from each of the armed forces: Army, Marine, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard. Please let me know if you meet one of these, and are willing to march in the parade with ALL STARS.

We will be sending you more details in regards to the time, drop-off and pick-up locations, and any other information you may need after we have our meeting on Sept 10th with the Parade organizers.

**Please RSVP your entry in the parade** by Thursday, September 5th at 12:00 noon!

As always, we want ALL our ALL STARS to be a part of this parade. It is a very fun time for all! :-)

FAQ of the month

(as found on the ASPA Website)

Q. Some months only have three weeks due to holidays. Do you prorate the monthly tuition due?

A.We only prorate the tuition on your initial enrollment month. Thereafter, the monthly tuition will be fixed. Some months may have 3 classes, yet others may have 5. On average you will be taking 4 classes per month through the end of the year. A fixed payment amount makes billing more convenient for you and the studio.

TUITION IS DUE... Late Fees charged after September 7th

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY...

as we make many attempts to advise you of upcoming events and performances, please remember it is the student and parent's responsibility to be aware of all ALL STARS activities, dates and events, such as performances, extra classes, and dates the studio is open or closed. ASPA will communicate all such notices via email, on the bulletin board inside the studio, the website and often through Facebook and monthly newsletters. Parents should check these mediums frequently to ensure they are informed.
Please remember to inform us of any email, phone number or address changes.
