1N5J0023It’s Bring a Friend to Dance Time!

During the week of February 11-14th 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. Also, wear your favorite color to dance!  They don’t need to have any former dance experience or dance attire.  Just tell them to come as they are and plan to have a great time!

PARENTS INFO WEEK:  February 25-28th

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!

The Dance Connection is producing a recital program book, again this year. It will be a full color printed book. We hope to provide this to all families who attend the recital free of charge, but in order to do so, we need your help!

If you are interested in advertising with us, purchasing a personal “shout out” or message to publish in the program, please read the program ad space post for more information and ad due dates.

The competition lines will be selling BUTTERBRAIDS this spring to help cover the cost of competing. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

FATHER/DAUGHTER DANCE ROUTINE  –  RECITAL 2013

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 rehearsals), which will start in April to learn the routine.

The theme this year is American Bandstand 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 fathers interested in participating must come to the first rehearsal to sign up. There will be no charge for this again this year.

Practice Schedule

Saturday, May 18: 2:00-4:00 pm
Saturday, June 1: 2:00-4:00 pm
Tuesday, June 6: 6:00-8:00 pm

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

Community Support

One of our dancers is a member of Girl Scout Troop #55881 and they are working towards their Silver Award. They are collecting used and new Level 1 books for the Special Education Classes at Rosemount Elementary. There will be a pink donation basket on the shelf for collection. If you’d like to donate they’ll be collecting through the end of February.
