2020 November Newsletter

COVID UPDATES

Thank you for continuing to follow the guidelines and helping us to remain a Safer Studio! Parent, 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 is currently 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. We will NOT be requiring students to keep their mask on during high-activity times when we are physically distanced. 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.

CLASS REMINDERS

  • Potty before class, especially preschoolers!
  • No underwear under your leotard. Tights are dancer’s underwear!
  • LATE! We have had a lot of latecomers and late pick-ups. It is very disruptive to our classes when you walk in late, not to mention unsafe for dancers to miss warming up.  Late pick-ups are preventing our next classes from starting on time. Thanks for your attention to this manner!

IT’S NEW STYLE NOVEMBER

This month we are opening up our trial program to our currently enrolled students to offer you the option to try another style of class with us.  Have you been thinking about trying Hip Hop or Tumbling?  We would love to see you in the class!  CLICK HERE to join us for a complimentary class in a different style this month!

NOV 9-13: FUN BUN WEEK

Fun bun week is Nov 2-6th!!!  Come to class with a fun bun or crazy hair (boys)!!!  Turn that bun into a masterpiece… Maybe it’s a spider or a one-eyed monster!!  We can’t wait to see your creations!

CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS AND BOOKS CHARITY PROJECT

This year’s Christmas Charity Project is going to be even bigger than last year! We are gathering new pajamas and books to donate to those in need locally.  We will be sending out an email that can be forwarded to family and friends about our project.  Start bringing in your donations this month! Look for the donation box in our front lobbies.  Help us beat last year’s total of 1523 pajamas, 1631 books, and $8000!

We are going to open up our Scholastic book program to ALL of our dance families just in time to order books for the benefit concert.  Scholastic is an amazing resource with GREAT books at a GREAT price!!  You can order $1 books for our book drive and they will be shipped right to the studio.  Visit Scholastic Books HERE and take advantage of this convenient way to donate to our book drive.  Online orders are due by Friday, November 13th. 

Dec 7-11: PARENT PROGRAMS VIA ZOOM

Dance classes have begun learning their Holiday dance to show off at our first-ever virtual parent program! We’re looking forward to showing off what we’ve been working on in class during the last 15 minutes of class time. Watch for more details when this gets closer!

FOR PARENTS OF SCHOOL AGED TUMBLING STUDENTS| Wall Sit – Back/Bridge

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 section each month just for preschool dancers!  This month our theme is “E I E I O“.  We will be singing and dancing to fun barn animal songs 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 marching and port de bra arms! 

HIP HOP CLASSES- SHOE POLICY

With winter weather approaching, we need to remind you that we CANNOT have wet, salty, muddy shoes stepping onto our dance floor. Please carry your hip hop shoes into the studio and change into them before you enter the classroom.  You will be asked to dance with no shoes if you don’t have a dry pair! Thank you!
