FIRST DAY OF FALL
CLASSES - TUES. SEPT 8
Fall dance classes are starting in just a few days!! We would like to have parents stay for the first few minutes of their dancer's class. Instructors and assistants will introduce themselves and they will review a few rules as we start our 2015 dance year.
Our first fundraiser, selling pizza certificates from Hugo's Pizza, will be September 13 through Monday, September 28. Payment for the pizza certificates is due at the time of the sale. Please remember this fundraiser is optional and all the money your dancer earns on their fundraiser sales is put towards their recital costume and then class tuition. (FYI: in the past there has been dancers that have paid for their recital costumes and a couples months or even a semester of classes). Checks should be made payable to: Ashland School of Dance or ASOD. Pizza certificates are redeemable at the Ashland and Washburn Hugo's restaurants. Hugo's donates approximately 25% of sales to dancers. Dancers will be able to pick up the pizza certificates from class at class the end of October. All orders and payments need to be returned to ASOD no later than Monday, September 28!
All dancers are invited to attend the Showstopper Workshop at the Kalahari in Wisconsin Dells. Our instructors and assistants will attend the workshop on October 11 & 12. This workshop is open to all dancers ages 6 & up. Check out their website for complete details (www.showstoppersonline.com). It's a great experience for all dancers!!
PRE-BALLET/TINY TAP &
LEVEL 1 DANCERS
When dancers for the Pre-Ballet/Tiny Tap and Level 1 classes come to class please make sure that both sets of their shoes have their names in them and please make sure their shoes are in a bag when they come to class each week. This will help lessen the confusion of whose shoes are whose since most dancers have the same shoes.
DANCE SHOE ORDERS
Dance shoes are mandatory when attending dance class. If dancers don't have dance shoes, they may be purchased through the dance studio. Please remember to put your dancers name in their dance shoes!! If you ordered dance shoes on one of our registration nights, the shoes will be available for pick up at your first dance class. If you still need to order shoes, please bring your dancer to class early so they can get fitted. All shoes need to be paid for when orders are placed.
WAITING ROOM AT STUDIO
Parents are welcome to wait in the waiting room at the dance studio while their dancer is at class but we ask you to make sure siblings aren't running in and out of the dance room while classes are scheduled. This is a distraction to the dancers and the instructors. Also, if you bring a snack up to the studio please be sure to clean up after yourself and your kids so there isn't food or trash left behind. Thanks in advance for your help!
NEWSLETTERS & WEBSITE
Throughout the dance season, please be sure to read the monthly newsletters. They always have lots of important information. All newsletters will be emailed to everyone who put an email address on their registration form. Please email us (email@example.com) if you didn't receive a copy of this month's newsletter by email. Extra newsletters are always available in our waiting area at the dance studio. All of the information is posted here on our website too. You can also find us on facebook.
New to our fall schedule is the Zumba III class. This class is open to dancers ages 9 & up who have already taken 2 years of ASOD Zumba classes. If this is your first or second year of Zumba and you are 9 years old or older you should then sign up for the Zumba II class.
In order to do a solo or duet in our Spring Dance Recital dancers must be taking either the Jr or Sr Company class. If you have a dancer that would someday like to do a solo/duet in the Spring Dance Recital, you should encourage your dancer to take the ballet/jazz classes. With the appropriate amount of time and class experience dancers will move from Level I Ballet/Jazz to Level II Ballet/Jazz to Level III Ballet/Jazz to Jr Company.
Everyone should have received the pictures they ordered from Picture Days. Additional poses from both pictures days are posted on Focus Photography's website (www.focusphoto.zenfolio.com) To view the pictures on her website: click on ASOD 2015 and then enter dance15 as the password. If you have any questions or comments regarding the pictures, please contact Pam at Focus Photography (firstname.lastname@example.org).
