I am so excited for this time of year!! The Buds and Bloomer have learned Tea Party dance and Waka Waka!! Sprouts know their tea party and are finishing up their jazz routine, my tiny tots are doing awesome with tap, jazz AND a Christmas Ballet!! We only have a handful of practices until Christmas! There are a few things I want to remind you of...
1. Parents are invited to stay on the 1st lesson of each month ONLY!! I appreciate so many of you ushering out spectators, it helps me keep the students attention.
2. Dance clothing is MANDATORY, NO levi's or school clothes, think of dance like swimming, its kinda difficult to do in baggy clothes!
3. I understand there are always going to be a lot of questions and if at all possible please try to call or email me before class. I will dismiss class 2 minutes early for parents to ask questions. Please ask at the the END of your childs class.
