DRESS-UP WEEK:  We invite the kids to dress up in their costumes for classes the week of Halloween.  Please make sure your childs costume is something they can move freely and safely in.  No weapons, large jewelry/headpieces or facepaint.  We also ask that you please be mindful of our youngest dancers, nothing too scary or gruesome.
SHOWCASE THEME:  The theme has been announced for this years showcase, LIGHTS * CAMERA * ACTION!
COSTUME WEEK:  Costume night for all competition dances is TUES 10/15.  Costume week for all showcase costumes is NOV 18-21.  Please stop by the front desk during this time to measure, order and pay for costumes.  Costumes not ordered by the 10/15 (competition) or 11/21 (showcase), will incur additional shipping charges.  Questions on how it all works?  Check out our Costume Week  help page on our website or ask at the front desk. 
AUTO PAY:  If you were on auto pay last year it does not automatically transfer to the new year.  Please remember that late fees are added after the 10th of the month.  This month only we will be extending the grace period to the 15th because so many people thought they were automatically signed up for autopay.  Please check your account and if you have a balance due then you need stop by the front desk or contact Jen to renew the autopay contract or pay the tuition manually.
STUDIO BOOKLETS:  For those of you that registered online you can stop by the front desk anytime to pick up a studio booklet which explains our studio policies and includes the studio calendar for the year. For your childs safety and comfort please abide by the dress code and have your dancer in proper dance clothing with their hair pulled back and no large jewelry.
USED SHOES:  If you have any dance shoes in good condition that your dancer has outgrown and you’d like to sell them please list them on our used shoe list at the front desk.  Once they sell please remember to cross them off the list.
DRINKS:  Water is the only drink allowed in the studio rooms.  Pop, gatorade, lemonade, smoothies, teas, coffees, ice cream, etc., are not allowed. Please make sure your child is aware of this and is only bringing water into the studios. Thank you for your cooperation.
PARKING:  Please remember that while we are allowed to use the adjacent parking lot (to the east), after 5 pm, at NO TIME can we park in the spots that are marked with signs as tenant parking.  Please make sure anyone that may come pick up your child is aware of this.  If we continue to use those spots we will lose the ability to share their lot. 
 Thanks for reading!!  We’re looking forward to another great year!!
