Happy New Year!

I just want to start this dance year off by saying Happy New Year to everyone in our Pirouette family. We are so lucky to have such great students and parents. We are very pleased with the students’ progress this year and hope they keep up the good work. We not only teach dance but are trying to instill life skills into the kids such as hard work pays off and teamwork is important. We appreciate the parents support with our teaching efforts. Please remember if there is ever an issue please bring it to my attention. Thanks again, and let’s hope for a great year!!

Tuition Reminder

Just a reminder, tuition is due by THE SECOND SATURDAY OF THE MONTH. This means you still need to come in and pay tuition, or pay online, even if your child has not had a class before the second Saturday of the month. Every month will have a different due date based on when the Saturday falls. This month tuition must be paid by January 12th, however, next month tuition needs to be paid by February 9th!


Dance Sleepover

We will be holding one Dance Sleepover this year for ages 12-up only. Sleepover is Saturday 1/19. You can drop off your child at 7:00 PM on the Saturday and pick up is at 9:00 AM on the Sunday and cost is $5. Please sign up in office; space is limited! Any parents that would like to donate snack and/or breakfast food would be much appreciated. Please make sure you eat 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)!


Personalized Recital CD’s

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.
