It’s Time for Bring a Friend to Dance Week!

During the week of Feb. 9-14th you may bring a friend to your dance class/classes with you to show them what you’ve learned and how much fun dance can be. They don’t need to have any former or formal dance experience or dance attire / shoes. Just tell them to come as they are and plan to have a great time!

Calendar of Events:
Monday – Wear one of your favorite old costumes to class
Tuesday – Let’s heat up the studio with Beach attire
Wednesday – Get a little retro and show your 80’s style
Thursday – Show your support and where your Dance Connection spirit wear
Saturday – Pajama day

All classes will still be dancing, so make sure you still have your dance shoes. Competition teams will be performing their routines for their friends.


Dance Connection Apparel Orders

Are due this Thursday February 5th. This will be the last order we will be placing for the year. Orders should be back before Spring Break.


Parents’ Information Week – Coming Soon!

The week of February 23-26th, Instructors will be giving out information regarding how the costumes should look on picture day and answering any questions that you may have about picture day. You will also get a packet full of information about the ticket ordering process, dress rehearsal schedule, summer class information, etc. Also, please check the spelling of your child’s name on the packet as this is how it will be spelled in the recital program. We want to avoid as many mistakes as possible with name spelling!

Father / Daughter Dance Routine – Recital 2015

Our annual father/daughter dance is kicking off once again! We are offering this to dancers who are 8 years old & up. All dancers and dads participating must attend four rehearsals (includes dress rehearsal), which will start in May to learn the routine. The theme this year is 70’s and the costume for this dance will be something you already own or can borrow. Each father/daughter couple will only perform in one of the three recital performances. Any father interested in participating must come to the first rehearsal to sign up. There will be no charge for this again this year.

Practice Schedule

  • Wednesday, May 13 7:30-8:30 pm
  • Saturday, May 17 1:00-2:30 pm
  • Tuesday, May 26 6:00-7:00 pm

The date for the dress rehearsal at Eastview High School will be available later.

This year’s participants will be acting, dancing, and singing in: Make ‘Em Laugh! (the musical)…and just for you, here is a sneak peek of the story…

…Rosemount tweens and teens are going to Clown Camp this summer! Their parents think they have finally found the PERFECT camp for their kids! The kids pack their red rubber noses, their goofy wigs and striped pants and arrive at Camp Bozo on the shores of Lake Chaplin for a month-long clown training extravaganza. Hold on, there’s something STRANGE about this camp. The Clownselors repeat the same phrase over and over, “I love to laugh! Ha Ha Ha Ha!” Chuckle’s Chicory and Krusteez Watercress are the only foods served at dinner. And no one gets to TAN, EVER! The Rosemount teens investigate and find out that…

To see how it ends, sign up and see for yourself!
