Drea’s Dream Showcase

Pirouette along with two other dance studios are putting on a showcase to raise funds for the Andrea Rizzo Foundation. “The Andréa Rizzo Foundation was established in memory of Andréa Rizzo, a beautiful young woman who survived childhood cancer and was tragically killed at the age of 24 by a drunk driver.  Her dream was to become a dance therapist and give children with cancer and disabilities the gift of dance.  With the support of many, her dream has become a reality.”  All proceeds from the showcase will be donated to the cause. Your support would be much appreciated. The showcase is at Mansfield High School on Saturday March, 4th at 6:00PM. Please support this cause and purchase a ticket for $10. You may also make a monetary donation.  Tickets available in the office!!!

Mid-Year Check in

As we near the half way point in the dance season I just like to check in with everyone to see how things are going, both positive and negative. I will be sending out an email regarding this also. Please let me know if you have any concerns regarding your child’s class or the studio in general. I do my best to make this the best experience for everyone so your input is truly appreciated.

Personalized Recital CD’s

STILL ACCEPTING ORDERS! It is very important for everyone to practice their dances at home. Most of the songs we use are an alteration from the original version so it is recommended to practice with the correct version found on our personalized Recital CD’s put together by the Pirouette staff. It is also recommended to purchase a CD because some of the original versions of the songs are not kid appropriate and we edit them. The cost will be $9.56 (price includes tax) and payment must be submitted with a “CD Request form.” Siblings may get their music on one CD for no extra charge! THESE ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR PRACTICING CHOREOGRAPHY AT HOME. Order forms available in the office.


Finale Rehearsals

Finale rehearsals will be on the following Fridays: 5/5, 5/26, 6/9, & 6/16. Times and groups TBA.


Since we cancelled classes on Tuesday, January 31st due to inclement weather, we will hold a make up for all Tuesday classes during February vacation. The make up classes will be held at their normal time on Tuesday, February 21st. Thank you!



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. Please call the studio if you are unsure. Also, please let the office know if you want to opt in for text notifications. We need your permission before we can text you.
