FALL DANCE SCHEDULE
Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP if you want to sign your dancer up for a fall class. Friday, October 3 is the deadline to join in any of the fall dance classes. Lots of classes are already filled and others 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. 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!
Orders and payments for the Kringle fundraiser were due on Monday, September 22. Please be sure to mark the fundraiser pick up date of Tuesday, October 21 your calendar!! The proceeds (about 25%) of your total order will go towards your dancer's recital costume. If you sell more than the cost of your recital costume we will put it towards your dancer's monthly tuition, dance shoes, and/or tights. When you pick up your order you will find out how much your dancer earned on their fundraiser.
The pick up date for the fundraiser items is Tuesday, October 21. Pick up on this date is mandatory – if are 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. Pick up will be at the H & R Block (616 Main St W) from 2:00 - 6:00 pm.
Our second and final fundraiser, selling pizza certificates from Hugos Pizza, will be Sunday, Sept 28 through Monday, October 13. (The pizza certificates are redeemable at both the Ashland & Washburn Hugos.)Please remember this fundraiser is also 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). The pizza fundraiser forms will be available for pick up at the dance studio starting Sunday, September 28. Payment for the pizza certificates are due at the time of the sale. Checks should be made payable to Ashland School of Dance or ASOD. All orders and payment for the Hugos fundraiser are due back to ASOD by Monday, October 13.
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!
We are already planning for the Spring Dance Recital on Friday, April 24, Saturday, April 25, Friday, May 1 & Saturday, May 2, 2015! The costume search is nearly complete. In order to receive the costumes before our picture days in March and our April recital nights, we measure all dancers in November and place costume orders the first week of December. This way you won't have to make the full costume payment the week before Christmas. All costumes need to be paid in full before we order them. More information on the recital and costumes is included in the Recital Handbook. A copy of the Recital Handbook can be found on the "Recital Handbook" tab at the top of this website or you may pick up your copy at the studio. We will keep everyone updated on the recital through this website, emails and monthly newsletters. Please remember, if you have chosen not to participate in either of the fundraisers your first costume deposit ($25.00) is due October 15th and your final costume payment is due November 14th.
