Newsletter for February 2019 

Hi everyone, hope your ‘new’ year is going well.  We have some important dates for you to mark on your calendar:
We will have class on Monday February 18th (President’s Day)
Spring/Easter Break April 15-19 studio closed, we will have classes on Monday April 22nd
Picture week at the studio – week of May 6th, a detailed schedule will be forthcoming (we try to do most pictures on the day your child is at the studio, but sometimes that is not the case) This is the week the kids wear their costumes to the studio, and Classic Photography prepares the studio for professional pictures (no regular classes are held this week) You do not have to buy any pictures but we do ask that you include your kid in the group pictures.
Run Through at the Fairgrounds June 11th – more details to follow – this is when we run through all the recital (not show troupe competitive) routines at the Fairgrounds, prior to dress rehearsal a schedule and more details with times will be forthcoming.
Dress rehearsal – June 13th at Patuxent High School – schedule TBD.
Recital dates – June 14th and 15th (two shows on Saturday the 15th)—a more detailed schedule will be available the end of April. Held at Patuxent High School, Lusby, MD
Remember when St. Mary’s county schools are closed and if after school activities are cancelled, due to snow, we also close and will not have classes.
The next parent observation is scheduled for the week of February 25th, the last 15 minutes; however, preschool parents will go into the preschool classes the last 20 minutes so that if you have multiple kids you can watch preschool first than go into your other child’s dance room.
As costumes arrive the room mom will notify you and parents will come into your child’s dance class and try on their costumes- the room mom will take notes on ‘how their hair should be, and if any accessories’ are needed.
Tights will be ordered for the recital soon.  We will have a sample of each size.  Tights are ordered each year, even if you have last year’s tights.  We want all the colors to match.  More information will be shared at parent observation week.

The kids are making great progress!  If you have any questions, feel free to email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  Thank you!

Tappin soul to sole,
Ms. Gracie
