Just For Kix Elko-New Market

February-May 2016 News

Practice Wear

Dancers should come to practice with their hair in a pony every week and bangs out of their face. This helps when working on turns!


Attire:

Dancers should be coming to class in athletic clothing. This could be tights, a leotard and shorts. Yoga pants, leggings, athletic shorts. NO Jeans, jean skirts, ect. They need to be able to move easily in their dance wear. Dance shoes or gym shoes are okay to wear at practice as well. If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me!

reminder for those newer dancers, returns are to be done by you. Please fill out the Salmon colored paper that comes with your costume or shoes. Send this back with the items your returning and Mail it to the address listed. The new item will be shipped to me and I will bring it to class once I have received it!

Uniforms

uniforms can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks at this time in the season given it is not as busy of a time. They will arrive to me and I will hand them out at class once I receive them.

Class openings

Know someone who still wants to join us? Currently each class offered right now has openings! Have them go to classes.justforkix.com for more information and our class schedule!

At Home

please make sure your dancer is stretching each night/day. Even the smallest amount makes a big difference. This can be for 10 mins a day, the goal is to increase flexibility!


Practice their dance at home each day at least once!
