Dear Dancers and Families,
Welcome to November! The chill in the air has surprised me, but our Studio spaces are toasty warm. October is our first long month of the year and marks the halfway point of our Autumn Semester. With the start of November, our Fall/Halloween festivities have concluded. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm during Spirit Week. It’s so fun to see students come to class in funky outfits and enjoy the bake sale. When we have our next bake sale, please remind your students that it is a fundraiser for Teen Jazz, and all treats must be paid for.
We had a lively crew at our Pumpkin Carving and Sock Hop event. If you didn’t get a chance to come, click HERE to view some pictures. If you did go and take some photos you would like to share with the community, please email them to me, and I will add them to the website. We would love to see all the fabulous costumes.
A Business Note:
November tuition is now due. Beginning November 1st, Contemporary Dance and Fitness Studio is implementing a late fee policy. Accounts will be considered delinquent after seven days. A $15 late fee will be added to all payments after the 10th of the month. A $25 late fee will be added to all payments received after the 20th. You can view our updated policy HERE. As always, communication is key, and we work with families on payment plans as much as we can.
We have three events to share for November. The first is an Assistant Workshop. This will be held in Studio A on Sunday, November 5th, from 4:00-5:00 pm. If your dancer is an assistant, please check that they have either signed up for the November Workshop or will be attending the December Workshop. Participation is mandatory to continue their assistantship and supports the work that assistants do in the classroom with our youngest dancers.
Works-In-Progress Showing: Saturday, November 11th. The Fall Works-In-Progress showing is an annual event hosted by Teen Jazz. Classes will come together in Studio B to share dances and movement phrases they have been working on in class. In addition to Teen Jazz, Junior Company, HipHop, Jazz, Contemporary, Modern, and Ballet classes will be performing. This year, we will have two showings to accommodate our spatial needs. The first showing is at 6:30 pm, with doors opening at 6:15 pm, and the second showing is at 7:30 pm. Reservations are required. You can reserve your seats by calling, emailing, or making an online registration through JackRabbit. You can access our event calendar HERE or in your JackRabbit account under Events.
Suggested donation: $15 for adults, $10 for kids. Cash preferred. Checks accepted.
Sunday Series: Our Sunday Series of FREE classes continues with Conditioning on Sunday, November 12th from 10:00 am - 11:00 am. Taught by Allison Mann, this class includes squats and lunges with weights, floor work for your abs, thighs, and butts, and deep yogic stretches. All set to a playlist of inspiring music. Pre-registration is encouraged but optional. This class is open to existing students and the public, so bring a friend!
Thanksgiving Break: The Studio will be closed November 20th-25th for Thanksgiving Break. Make-up classes may be scheduled on November 20th and 21st. Individual classes will be emailed with details about any planned make-up classes.
See you in the Studio,
