Attendance Reminder

Regular attendance is essential for proper dance development.  The recital dances are choreographed according to the number of students in each class, therefore everyone should be in class in order to present the dance the best they can.   Please contact the school if you will not be attending class. 


Costumes

Costumes will be arriving over the next several weeks. Parents – you will be invited inside the classroom to help their dancer try them on and will receive information about how the costume is supposed to look.  If you are not available at this time, please ask the instructor for any information you may have missed.

Please remember that all account balances (including tuition) must be up-to-date / in good standing in order to receive your costume. Keep in mind that costumes come in sporadically and we will pass them out as we get them…some companies take longer than others and we order from many different companies.


2016 Class / Team Picture Days

Our Annual picture days are fast approaching! 2016 Picture days will be held on March 5th and 6th, 2016. The picture schedule will be available soon and sent home with your dancer as well as available here. Please note that there will be no classes on March 5th.


Dance Connection Spirit Wear

Final order for the year will be placed on February 4th.  Order forms are available at the desk.  This will be the last chance to get these styles, as they change each year. 


Class Cancellations due to weather

If the studio needs to close due to bad weather, we will post the closing 2 hours prior to the start of classes for that night on the Dance Connection FACE BOOK PAGE, which automatically posts on the website.

A message will also be recorded on the studio voice mail. 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!

Rec classes can be made up in another similar class at a different time, but is not required. Competition Teams already have extra rehearsals built in to the schedule, but the instructor may choose to add one.


Waiting Room Etiquette Reminder

Please, please, please for the safety and comfort of everyone, we would like to remind you that:

  • Do not block the bins under the window with viewing chairs. The dancers need to be able to get to them easily to store their bags, etc…
  • No colored juices or stain causing beverages in the waiting area.
  • Pick up your garbage. We have garbage cans by the water fountain and in the waiting area.
  • Playing tag and rough play should not be allowed. Please monitor your children.
  • Encourage your children to use their “inside voices”.
  • The water fountain is not a toy!

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!
