You should have received your Cookie dough fundraising packet by now. If not, please get one from the office. All money is due by 10/9 between 8:30 and 1:00. We will accept CASH ONLY,(NO COINS PLEASE) no checks/cards will be accepted!!! You will receive a 30% profit of everything you sell!!! Top two sellers will receive a $100 bonus towards costumes/tuition to be applied directly to your account! We will be able to take money during our weekly office hours if a staff member is available. Orders MUST BE PICKED UP ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 19th. You will be given a specific time to come based on your dancer’s last name.
Halloween Spirit Week Fundraiser
The week of 10/25-10/30 we will be having a Halloween Spirit Week Fundraiser! The kids can wear costumes or any type of Halloween apparel ALL WEEK! We kindly ask for a one time $5 donation towards our scholarship fund to help students in the future.
A rule at Pirouette is that no dance shoes are to be worn outside then worn in the studio. Dance shoes are very expensive and get ruined very quickly if worn on outside services such as pavement. Also, when students wear their shoes outside, they bring in dirt, rocks and other particles that are then transferred onto our dance floors causing damage and slipping hazards. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO WEAR THEIR DANCE SHOES OUTSIDE. If we see the children coming in with dance shoes on they will not be allowed to wear them in the classroom until properly cleaned.
As you know our Cookie Dough fundraiser helps to defray the cost of costumes. Any extra money that goes beyond costume payments will be put towards tuition. We are doing an early bird rate of $70 (for non-competitive classes) for costumes if paid by 10/30. We will be billing for costumes shortly so please make note of this when you review your account balance. Any costumes paid after 10/30 will increase to $80. All final costume payments are due by December 4th. If your costumes are not paid, your child cannot participate in the Recital.
Please keep in mind these prices are cost per costume. Please see class descriptions for an accurate count of how many dances each class performs (for example, Creative Movement 2 has two costumes). There will be an additional $10 fee for an XL and XXL Adult costume. I know this is a tough time of year for people to be spending extra money but I will need to order the costumes in December to ensure their arrival. You may make payments at any time. Children will be measured then Miss Kiirsten will pick the costume size based on a sizing chart. If you want to pick your child’s size please schedule a time with Miss Kiirsten to do so. There will be a $10 fee for a costume size exchange. IF YOU WANT AN EXCHANGE YOU WILL NEED TO PAY THE FEE REGARDLESS OF WHO PICKED YOUR CHILD’S SIZE.
We will be doing 2 Finales this year: one to close the 1st half of the show and one to close the 2nd half of the show. We will be calling it Finale 1 and Finale 2. Naturally, Finale 1 closes the 1st half and Finale 2 closes the 2nd half.
Finale 1 is open to the following classes:
- Combo 1 & 2
- Acro 2 & 3
- Pom 2
- Hip Hop 2
- Irish 2
- Musical Theater
- All Teal Classes
Finale 2 is open to the following classes:
- All P, D, or A (competitive) classes
There will be a $25 fee to be in the finale, due by 12/4. There will also be a costume fee of $70. You will be billed for both when you sign up. Please sign up in the office or call/email that you want to be signed up. Practice times to be announced based on sign ups. We will have 3 rehearsals for Finale 1 and two rehearsals for Finale 2 to be held on Friday nights. Dates TBA. Attendance to these rehearsals is very important. Please note there will be a mandatory make up class required for a class missed. This will be an additional fee of $10 for this class for material missed and the class will be roughly 30 mins. SINCE THERE ARE LIMITED REHEARSALS, IF YOU MISS ALL OF THEM, YOU ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO BE IN THE FINALE AND WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY REFUNDS.
Fundraising Raffle Calendar
We are excited to announce we received enough donations to do our Raffle calendar for the month of December. We will provide calendars and you may also copy if more are needed. Cost will be $10 and will be split as $5 going to your dancer’s account and the other $5 going to the Pirouette Scholarship Fund. All money and slips must be submitted to the office by 11/23.We will accept CASH ONLY,(NO COINS PLEASE) no checks/cards will be accepted!!! When you sell a calendar please have the person fill out the top part with their contact information. Be sure they or you write the dancer’s name on the calendar as well to receive proper credit. Everyday in December we will pull a prize. We will announce it on social media and the dancer who sold it to the winner is responsible to be sure they get their prize which you can get from the studio.
As a reminder, please do not park in front of the Laundry place next door. We have plenty of parking on the side and by parking in front of their store, it makes it tough for their customers to carry in heavy bags of laundry. Thank you for paying attention to this matter.
