December 2014 Studio Newsletter

Winter Break Reminder

Don’t forget: the studio will be closed for Winter Break from December 22nd – January 4, 2015.  Classes will resume on Monday, January 5, 2015.


Winter Weather Class Cancellation Information

If the studio needs to close due to inclement weather, we will post the closing 2 hours prior to the start of classes for that night on our Facebook and Twitter pages. The studio Twitter feeds directly onto our homepage (right column) in real-time. However, we do encourage you to ‘Like’ our Facebook page and/or follow our Twitter feed.

We will also post a message on the studio voicemail, but we do not provide closing notices to the local news channels.  Please keep in mind we have teachers coming from north of the cities who can’t always make it here in inclement weather and we have families coming from as far as Hastings and Northfield. The safety of all our instructors and students is our first priority!

Holiday Spirit

New this year!! We are teaming up with ATA Karate to collect much needed food and toiletry items for the Rosemount food shelf, along with Toys for Tots. A special drop box will be located just inside the studio.  If you would like to donate non-perishable food items, personal hygiene items or an unwrapped gift, please place it in the box by the desk by December 20th.

The Dance Connection staff would like to help those less fortunate this holiday season!

New classes this January!!

Do you have a dancer ages 3-6 years old that would like to try dance but doesn’t want a long term commitment? Our Twinkle Toes and Taps class might be for you!! Call the studio at 651-423-2885 or contact us online for more information.

Lost and Found

We have a lost and found located between the 1st and 2nd studio space. To stop it from overflowing, please put your name on anything you would want returned if it were lost…especially dance shoes!!! Lost and found is almost always overflowing so please check it regularly because whatever is left behind at the end of the year will be donated to Goodwill.
