Pizza certificates will be available for pick up at your dancer's class the week of November 13. Dancers earn 25% of their total sales. Remember this fundraiser is optional and all the money your dancer earns on their fundraiser is put towards their recital costume and then towards class tuition.

asod@centurytel.net) if  you'd like to register your dancer for a fall dance class. You can mail in your completed registration form along with your payment (1310 Vaughn Ave.). Please email if you have any questions.


DANCE SHOES ARE REQUIRED 
Dancers must wear dance shoes while in dance class!! No exceptions!! If your dancer is in a ballet/tap class they MUST have ballet & tap shoes; if your dancer is in a ballet/jazz class they MUST have ballet & jazz shoes; if your dancer is in a jazz/funk class they MUST have jazz & clean soled tennis shoes!! Please make sure you dancer has the necessary shoes!!

PARENTS MUST REMAIN WITH YOUR DANCERS TILL CLASS STARTS
Parents: When you are dropping your dancer off for dance class, PLEASE DO NOT DROP THEM OFF AND LEAVE BEFORE CLASS START!! All dancers through Level II should have a parent present with them in the waiting room until class starts! And please remind your dancers there should be no running around and yelling or using loud voices while waiting for class to start. Thank you in advance for your help!!


PRE-BALLET/TINY TAP & LEVEL I 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. Dancers may get fitted for ballet & jazz shoes at the dance studio; tap shoes aren't at the studio so you'll need to call (715-292-3567) to schedule a time to get fitted for tap shoes. All shoes need to be paid for when orders are placed. We'll be placing our final shoe order on Friday, September 16.

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 (asod@centurytel.net) 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. 

FUTURE SOLOISTS 
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.

LOST & FOUND
When you pick up your dancer after class each week, please be sure to make sure they have all their shoes.


CLEAN STUDIO

For those of you that bring a snack to the studio, please take a moment to clean up any mess before you leave. Please help up keep the studio area clean.
