WINTER 2019-2020 NEWSLETTER!
Around the Studio!
Parent Viewing – The week of December 16 – 21, parents are welcome to observe their children from inside the studio. Students will demonstrate what they have been working on since the fall and also perform an informal holiday dance. Parent Viewing will take place during regular class days and times.
Holiday Closure – The studio will be closed from December 22 – January 5 for the holidays. Classes will resume again on Monday, January 6, 2020. Wishing you all a safe and Happy Holiday!!
Recital Info – This year’s recital will be at First Ontario Concert Hall, Hamilton, on Saturday, June 20, 2020. Dress Rehearsal will be on Monday June 15. If you will not be participating in the Recital, please contact the office as soon as possible. More recital information will be available in the New Year.
Shoes & Boots – It’s that messy time of the year again! Students and Parents: During the winter months, only indoor shoes, slippers and dance shoes are permitted in the building. Help us keep the studio dry, clean, comfortable and salt-free for those of us in socks and dance shoes. Please place your boots in the cubbies provided at the front door so that we can keep the entry way clutter-free.
Conditioning Page – Keep practicing over the holidays and start the New Year stronger than ever! Ms. Laura has introduced a new IG page for Allegro dancers and families that would like to add Pilates inspired conditioning to their daily routine. Follow @barre_movement for workout videos you can try at home to build a strong, healthy and flexible body! Parents, if there is enough demand, we may offer Adult Fitness for 2020. Please let Victoria know if you’re interested in signing up for a weekly class similar to what you see online at @barre_movement.
Term 2 Tuition – Fees for the 2nd Term will be processed on January 6, 2020. If you have not already submitted your cheque or need to update your credit card information, please contact the studio prior to Jan. 6. All costume fees have been included in your tuition. If your child will not be finishing the season or will not participate in the year end recital, it is important to contact the studio asap. This will ensure that your card is not charged and it will help us order the appropriate number of costumes. Please note: A late payment for Term 2 may result in recital costumes not being placed on time, therefore a late fee may apply.
Rec. Costume Measurement Week – Students will be measured in class for costumes the week of January 6 – 11. If you are going to be away that week, please let the office know so arrangements can be made to have your child measured another time.
Family Day closure – Just a reminder, the studio will be closed on Monday, February 17, 2020. We hope you enjoy your day off with your family.J
For everyone’s safety, please do not park in front of the building!!! There is plenty of parking to the side and back of the studio. Parking in the front contributes to congestion and the drop-off zone becomes inaccessible. If you park or idle your car in the front, you may be asked to move;) Thank you.
