February Stretch of the Month- Straddle | Strength Challenge- Bridge

We are so excited this year to have a “stretch of the month” and a “strength challenge” in our acro/tumbling classes! Encourage your child to work on these skills at home to help them improve even faster!  Be more involved by printing off the at-home practice tracker HERE.

FOR PARENTS OF PRESCHOOL DANCERS- FEBRUARY THEME

In February our theme is “Me and My Teddy.”  Each class will be focused on spreading kindness and joy. This month we are focusing on:  hopping on one foot, developing rhythm, waiting our turn, Boogie, Twist & Rock’n roll, Tendu, Saute jumps. We hope you can find time to review these elements with your dancer at home.  It is a great way to get EVERYONE moving!! 

Last month on our Instagram page we announced our concert theme for our 21st Concert.  Drumroll…. EXTRA! EXTRA! Dance All About It! Save the date, the concert is June 18, 2022!!

Preparations are well underway for our June Concert. Costumes have been ordered for all dancers that have turned in their consent form. Time is running out for us to guarantee we can get your dancer a costume.  So, DON’T WAIT!!  The consent form can be found by visiting the portal on our website and clicking the concert icon. 

We will start learning routines the first of March.  At this time we need all the parent support we can get.  Please be practicing with your child at home and be involved in what is going on in class. 

Have questions about the concert?  Ask us!  You won’t want to miss it!

PROPER ATTIRE

We cannot provide proper feedback if we cannot see the alignment of our dancers. Please help us to run an upscale program by sending your child to class in the right attire and proper hair.  STARS reminder that you are required to wear your class outfit each week and your hair in a bun.

The last week of every month is FREEstyle for STAR classes.  This means you can wear whatever color of dance attire as long as it is appropriate for the class (Leo and tights ONLY for ballet).

Preschool parents please remember those important ballet shoes… It is NOT safe for your dancer to be in her tights.  If shoes are forgotten you will be asked to have your child barefoot.

View a class overview of attire here.

STREET SHOES

PLEASE remember to send your child in with a pair of street shoes… We want to keep those ballet shoes looking new and protect our floor!  Hip Hop students that do not have proper footwear will be asked to take class barefoot for safety. classes!
