Coat Drive

Our studio is participating in a local coat drive being held at Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School! They are asking for gently used coats of all sizes, Toddler-Adult. Coats can be dropped off to our studio now thru December 5th. Miss Jocelyn will then bring them to the school where students in the Portuguese Club will donate them to St. Vincent De Paul for those in need this winter! Please consider donating your unwanted coats or coats your children have outgrown! Thank you in advance and please share!


Costume and Routine Balances

By now your child has been measured for their costumes. Please note your account now reflects December tuition, ALL costumes, finale, and specialty routine fees (if applicable). YOUR ENTIRE BALANCE MUST BE PAID IN FULL NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 15th! Any balances not paid in full before Holiday break will result in no costumes being ordered! NO COSTUMES = NO RECITAL!  We need to order costumes over break to ensure their arrival for recital. As always, we appreciate your continued support!

Waiting Room

Please be conscious of other people in the waiting room and please do not leave your stuff in areas that are taking up seating for others. There is a coat rack for coats and bags can be put under the benches. Also, your children should be bringing in all their stuff into the studio when they have class and putting it in cubbies (with the exception of Creative Movement) to alleviate waiting room congestion.

Food Drive/Lost & Found

We will be holding a Food drive this month! Please help by donating nonperishable food items. The items will be donated to a local soup kitchen/charity. Thanks for all your help. All items due by 12/22. Also, all items that are left unclaimed in Lost & Found by 12/22 will also be donated to charity.

Inclement Weather

Just a reminder: if there is no class due to bad weather, it will be put on the studio voicemail no later than 3:30PM. We will also email and post on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram. Please call the studio if you are unsure.

Dance Sleepover

We will once again be holding our annual Dance Sleepover. FYI we will only be running one sleepover for ages 12-up this year. Cost is $5, drop off time is 7PM and pick up is at 9AM. Sign-up sheet will be available in January. Any parents that would like to donate snacks and/or breakfast food would be much appreciated. We will provide a “midnight snack.” Please make sure your child eats supper before you come and bring everything needed for a dance sleepover (sleeping bag, pillow, PJ’s, change of clothes for next day, tooth brush, and of course your dance shoes!!) Thanks!
