December Studio Newsletter


Winter Break

Don’t forget – there will be no dance classes Dec. 20 through January 4, 2013.  Classes will resume on Saturday, January 5, 2013.



Two small dance groups from The Dance Connection will be performing some Christmas dance routines a the second annual Christmas at the Steeple Chase.   It is held this Saturday, December 1st at the Steeple Chase Center (the old St. Joseph’s Church) in Rosemount.  Join us for an old fashioned Christmas variety show.  Tickets can be purchased online or on Thursdays from 8 – 11 am at Morning Glory’s Cafe, 14590 S. Robert Trail (Hwy 3).


Class Cancellations due to weather

It is inevitable, the snow is coming!  If the studio needs to close due to bad weather, we will post closing information 2 hours prior to the start of classes for that night on our facebook page, which automatically populates in the right column of this site. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter to stay up-to-date on all of the latest weather information.

A message will also be recorded on the studio voicemail. We will not be posting closing on the 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. Safety is our priority!


Holiday Spirit

Once again, we will have a Toys for Tots gift box at the studio. If you would like to donate an unwrapped gift, please place it in the box by the desk by December 17.
The Dance Connection staff would like to help those less fortunate this holiday season!


Lost and Found

We have a lost and found located under the recital pictures in the lobby waiting area. To keep this area from overflowing, please put your name on anything you would want returned if it were lost…especially dance shoes! Whatever is left behind at the end of the year will be donated to Goodwill.



We have received confirmation for the 2013 recital and rehearsal dates (listed below).  This is such an important event for the dancers that we try to get the best dates possible.  The High Schools in the area school districts are also getting busier with activities every year.  This year the recital will be held the second weekend in June.  We understand that this is later than last year, but believe that with school being out, both dancers and parents will be less stressed because there will not be other school functions and commitments to work around, such as choir and band concerts, etc….

With the recital dates set, the last day of class will be June Monday, June 3rd.  Tuition for June will be half your normal amount for the month.  This will include dress rehearsal and recital fees.

DRESS REHEARSALS:  @ Eastview High School, Apple Valley
June 6 -7   Rehearsal will start after 5 pm – we will post a detailed schedule after Winter break.

RECITAL DATES: @ Eastview High School, Apple Valley (Times may be subject to change)
