A NOTE FROM THE MILES FAMILY:  Our family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our EDA family for the kindness and generosity that we’ve been given during recent hardships caused by the unexpected August 10th storm.  When you’re in the midst of chaos it is all too easy to operate in a state of shock with little to no foresight of what your needs even are.  Even though we’ve temporarily relocated to another home in another community, we knew that we wanted to provide our girls with as much stability and normalcy as possible.  Both Liv and Hazel are truly at peace when they are at the studio and in the presence of their beloved dance friends and family.  While finances are a source of stress right now, we are committed to doing everything we can to provide our girls with these opportunities.  The support that you have given via reaching out, offering to help with our property, and/or through financial donations has been absolutely unexpected yet truly appreciated.  

With all of our love, 

The Miles Family

(Edmond, Lindsay, Olivia, Hazel, and Charlotte)

 

STUDIO REMINDERS:  As we enter into cold and flu season while also in a pandemic year please respect our short term policies so that we are able to keep our lobby “open”. Please only come into the lobby if you are picking up, dropping off or have business to attend to at the front desk. When entering the building remember to have your mask on and practice social distancing. Dancers in the lobby need to have masks on at all times, unless they’re eating. When eating they need to spread out as much as possible. This year we must also be a little more cautious with coughs and sniffles as well. Please keep your child home from class if they have one or more of the following symptoms, fever, runny nose, cough, vomiting and/or diarrhea. If your child is feeling up to it we would be happy to have them join us for class at home via zoom. Please let us know by 3 pm on the day of class so we can get everything set up in time. 

SHOES/DRESS CODE/HAIR:  Please be sure you’re setting you dancers up for success by sending them into class in correct dance attire, with the correct shoes and their hair pulled back and secured away from their face. All three of these things are important for minimizing distractions and maximizing their training. If you have questions regarding which shoes your dancer needs please call/email/text or stop by the front desk. 

WAYPOINT WONDERLAND:  We will again be teaming up with Waypoint to provide gifts to families in need this holiday season. The tree will go up in late November with tags for dancers to take off if you’d like to participate. Gifts will be due back to the studio in early December. 

Thanks for reading and thank you for doing your best to keep all of our dancers, staff and families safe!
