We are Thankful

The theme this month around CSDA is about being thankful. It is so important to teach our kids about gratitude and what better way than to have them all fill out a turkey feather or leaf of what they are thankful for. Our Thankful Turkeys and leaves will be displayed in the waiting areas for all to read.

To show you, our dance family, we are thankful for you, this month we are hosting Discover Dance Days! All our current dancers can try another class (or as many as you'd like!) for free. Aside from our most common ballet, tap and jazz class we offer many other styles like like hip hop, breakin, musical theater, lyrical, modern, jumps/turns and acro. Sign up for your free trial class(es) in your parent portal under register and click trial under the class name.

Monthly Fundraising

November Community: With Veteran’s Day approaching, please help us show our appreciation for the veterans of our country by dropping off Thank You cards at either studio. The cards can be homemade or store-bought, 1, or 100 cards. Any amount is appreciated! Deadline is November 9th.

CSDA Family News
