2020 December Newsletter

COVID UPDATES

Thank you for continuing to follow the guidelines and helping us to remain a Safer Studio! Parents, thank you for symptom checking, keeping kids home if they are not well, and for your enhanced efforts to practice good hygiene. We appreciate everyone for doing their best to keep everyone healthy!

Salt County remains in HIGH transmission status. This requires us to wear masks in classes. Kids are doing very well with this and we continue to be impressed with how resilient our students are. Please remind your dancer to leave their masks on so we can keep coming to learn in person. We recommend sending dancers with a lanyard to wear around their neck so they can keep their mask clean when they need to remove it for mask breaks and high-activity times when we are physically distanced.

WINTER SERVICE PROJECT – CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS AND BOOKS

Our annual pajama and book drive is going on now! Our project will help support Utah Foster Care and several other local Utah charities.  We are collecting new pajamas and books at both studios until December 11th. We hope you will join us in this cause!

So many of us have grown up with the tradition of opening up a new pair of pajamas every Christmas Eve.  Kids love pajamas! We felt like giving pajamas to other children was a way to help even our youngest dancers grasp the concept of giving.  We have been collecting pajamas and books for the Utah Foster Care Foundation and several other local charities every year since.  They are always so excited to see us and so grateful for new jammies right in time for the holidays!  This event has been a wonderful way to create more holiday spirit in our students and share a little dancing joy at the same time! 

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

  • Donate new books and pajamas size preemie to adult. Drop donations off at the studio. Items can be handed to any teacher at pick up or drop off next time you are at the studio.
  • We are also collecting monetary donations which will go towards more jammies and books! Bring in cash or Venmo donations to @danceforlife and include the dancers name so the amount can go toward their service society recognition!
  • Invite others to donate! We want to involve as many people in our community as we can. Share this letter with families and friends this holiday.

FOR PARENTS OF SCHOOL AGED TUMBLING STUDENTS | Superman – Straddle

We want you to join us in our monthly strength and stretch challenge!  Each month we have a new challenge we are working on.  You can print it out and track your progress at home.  In the last week of the month, we will “test” our students in class and see if they can meet the goals for their age!

FOR PARENTS OF PRESCHOOL DANCERS

We are excited to have a new theme each month just for preschool dancers!  This month our theme is “From My Heart to Yours“ We will be singing and dancing to holiday tunes while working on our routine for the holiday show. We encourage you to get involved and have them practice their skills at home!  This month we are focusing on gallops, head isolations, 6th position, shoulder isolations, toe touches, and sharing.  

DEC 21 – JAN 3: STUDIO CLOSED FOR WINTER BREAK

Please pay close attention to the calendar.  We will be closed Dec 21 –Jan 3 for Winter Break.  Classes will resume on January 4th. Our schedule stays the same when we return in January.  The classes you are currently registered in continue through June 2021.  We hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday; we will see you in 2021.

UP NEXT…YEAR-END CONCERT and TUMBLING EXHIBITION IN JUNE

We want to remind you that time is running out to submit your concert consent forms before the early bird deadline on dec 15th! A consent must be turned in to participate in this year’s concert.

We realize there is alot unknown about events with large groups right now. Last year’s Red Carpet Recitals were a wonderful alternative to our big theatre performance and might be one of the most memorable experiences we’ve ever provided for our dancers! No matter what our Concert ends up looking like in 2021, we promise to make it a wonderful event for your family.

Concert costumes must be ordered months in advance, so we’re moving forward to continue using the end-of-year performance as a tool to build confidence and provide a sense accomplishment to our students- even if that still has to look a little differently than we would like it to. We hope you’ll join us in this celebration of a successful year of hard work!

The performance package can be broken into a payment plan or paid all at once. The all-inclusive package adds to the overall experience for the dancer and makes it that much more “magical” and memorable!
