FIRST DAY OF CLASSES
Fall dance classes are starting in just a few short days! The first day of classes is Tuesday, September 2. We would like to have parents stay for the first few minutes of their dancer's class so instructors, assistants, dancers & parents can introduce themselves. And we will review a few rules as we start our 2014 dance year.
FALL DANCE SCHEDULE
We've completed both of our fall registration nights and classes have filled up faster than expected. Please email us (email@example.com) ASAP if you want to sign your dancer up for a fall class. Some classes are already filled and other have very limited open spots available! A copy of the 2014 fall dance schedule is available to view on the schedule tap of this website! All classes have a set maximum number of dancers per class and once that limit is met your dancer will be placed in their second choice class or on the waiting list. Fall classes start on Tuesday, September 2. You MUST submit a completed registration form with the first month payment in order to hold your spot!!! You may mail your completed registration form and payment to: ASOD 1310 Vaughn Ave. Ashland, WI 54806.
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 shoe 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. All dance shoes need to be ordered by Tuesday, September 9.
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.
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!
Our first fundraiser selling Kringle, Cheesecake & Cookie Dough from Racine Danish Kringles will begin on Sunday, September 7th. All orders and money will need to be turned in by Monday, Sept 22.
The tentative pick up date for the fundraiser items is Tuesday, October 21. Pick up on this date is mandatory – if you unavailable on this day you’ll need to arrange for someone else to pick up your fundraiser items or you should opt out of selling for this fundraiser because we have nowhere to store your refrigerated fundraiser items.
The second fundraiser, selling pizza certificates from Hugos Pizza, will be Sunday, Sept 28 through Monday, October 13. Please remember both fundraisers are optional and all the money dancers earn on their fundraiser is put towards their recital costume and then class tuition. (FYI – in the past there has been dancers that have paid for their recital costume and a couple months or even a semester of dance class)
Every October we take our dance instructors and assistants to the Showstoppers Workshop that is held on October 11 & 12 in Wisconsin Dells. This workshop is open to all dancers ages 6 and up. Check out their website (www.showstopperonline.com) for complete details. It’s a great experience for all dancers!
