HAPPY WINTER EVERYONE!  

It’s a busy time of year with Holiday festivities and activities. We had super fun workshops this month with Danielle LeBlanc who brought East Coast Step Dance to our studio, which was a big hit! We had 2 amazing workshops, Dec.3 and Dec. 10. We had so much fun that we decided to keep her… she will be continuing at Beach Dance School in the new year on Saturdays. We will have classes for kids and adults. Make sure you sign up early to guarantee your spot, as these classes are sure to become popular 🙂 You can contact her at http://www.facebook.com/eastcoastdanceto

OCTOBER

And we are back! To blogging that is… after a long break, we thought you might be wondering about us.

We held 3 summer dance camps this year, 1 in July and 2 in August. Kids had the opportunity to work with guest teachers and learned different disciplines, such as Acro and Musical Theatre. Thank you Ms.Katherine and Ms.Murphy for joining us this summer.

Classes started Sep.10 and already a month has gone by…Here are some reminders:

BRING A FRIEND FOR A FREE TRIAL CLASS THIS OCTOBER!

DROP OFF / PICK UP ~ Due to the high traffic during beginning and end of classes, parents are encouraged to leave their strollers outside of the studio. It is important for our dancers who are in class to not lose their focus due to noise level in the waiting area. If you are going to be late, please contact the school. Also please let us know who will be picking up your child.

SHOES~ Street shoes are not permitted in the studio (both floors). Everyone must take their shoes off and place their shoes in the shoe cubby, located beside the entrance. This is the only way we can keep our studio clean and safe for dancing. Please help keep dirt, grit, sand and wet puddles on rainy days off and away from our dance school. Also Ballet Shoes should not be worn as street shoes, these shoes are specially designed for dancing and they’re made for dance floors. Please help us teach our future dancers to respect their dance attire. Thank you kindly for your cooperation.

BLUE BIN is our Shoe and Attire exchange bin. It is not the lost and found, please only leave dance attire . You can exchange shoes and  clothes in good condition anytime. We also accept dance related books.
