September 2014 Studio Newsletter

A New and Exciting Dance Year is Upon us!

Your child will learn the art of dance, gain confidence, develop poise and stamina, improve coordination, and have fun! At the Dance Connection we emphasize correct terminology, technique and training through our teaching methods.

The Dance Connection instructors are always willing to answer any questions or address any concerns. If you need to discuss anything with them, please do so before or after class. You can also leave a note for them at the desk or e-mail the studio and they will call you at a time that is more convenient.

Used Dance Shoes For Sale

If you would like to sell your old dance shoes, please secure them together (Ziploc bags work awesome!) and place them on the used shoe rack. Make sure you have your name, size, and price on each shoe (or on the bag) by using masking tape or duct tape. Please note that selling shoes is at your own risk. The studio is not responsible for missing or stolen shoes.

We will only sell used shoes for students who are currently enrolled in classes at the Dance Connection. If you need to buy shoes, please do so before or after class.

If you forget your shoes DO NOT take them from the used shoe rack. These shoes are for sale and not to borrow. We do have shoes to borrow, but please be honest and return them.

The Dance Connection is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. Please label all dance shoes and bags. If you are missing something, check the lost and found basket found under the pictures/coat rack.


Regular attendance is essential for proper dance development. Tuition remains the same regardless of absence. Classes can be made up by attending the same class on another night. Please contact the studio if your child will be absent.

If you decide you can no longer attend dance classes, please put it in writing and give it to your teacher or leave it at the front desk. This way you won’t get a bill for tuition by mistake.

Fundraiser and Recital DVD’s

Our annual fundraiser will run from September 8 to September 25. Pick up more information at the front desk. Your profit is 40% of what you sell and may be used towards anything BUT tuition, recital pictures, and recital DVD movies.

Thank you to the parents and students who volunteered to help at our dance recital last season. Without your help it would not have run so smoothly! If you ordered a DVD, they can be picked up at the front desk. Forgot to order? You can still get one by visiting
