Recital is May 19. Attendance is Very Important.

Our recital is only  weeks away.  Attendance in class at this time is very important.  I want to encourage everyone to attend regularly.

Recital will be held the morning of May 19 at Connally High School.  Dress rehearsal will start at about 8:00 for some of us, and continue until about 11:00.  Then there is a half hour or so break with the curtains closed – a great time to see if your dancer needs to use the restroom.

Then our show begins at 11:30, has a 10 minute intermission, and will be done about 12:45.  Then, if your family is anything like mine, it’s time for a celebratory lunch at a favorite restaurant.

Again, everyone please attend class regularly so our dancers feel well-prepared for recital.

No Class Monday Feb 19

Just a quick reminder that the rec center is closed on Monday Feb 19 for Presidents Day, and we don’t have dance class.  Monday classes, remember that we have a make-up on Saturday March 10, and we DO have Monday classes the week of spring break.

 

Will There Be Dance Class Tomorrow? How to Tell.

It’s a lovely day right now, but Central Texas is expecting a winter storm on Tuesday.  Will we have dance class?  Here’s how to tell.

We generally follow Pflugerville ISD.  If Pflugerville schools get a snow day, we do too, (with rare exceptions).  If they start late, so does dance.

If we do cancel class because of bad weather, we will schedule a make-up class later in the year, probably on a Saturday afternoon.

So, keep an eye on the Pflugerville ISD website:

www.pfisd.net

Dance Classes Start Monday January 8

I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year!

Just a quick reminder.  In general, our dance classes follow the Pflugerville ISD school year calendar, with a few exceptions.  Monday Jan 8 is one of those exceptions.  The school has a student holiday, but we’re going to go ahead and start dance classes.

If your dancer has missed any, I encourage make-up classes.  Pick a class that is the same age/level or slightly younger, and just show up!

Other important dates for the winter and spring:

Monday January 15, no class for MLK day

Monday Feb 19, no class for Presidents day

March 12 – 16,  no class for Spring Break

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Back To Dance Event Saturday 1-4 pm

Our annual Back to Dance event is Saturday, 1-4 pm at the Pflugerville Recreation Center, upstairs in the dance room.

We will have used tap and ballet shoes for sale and trade, new ballet shoes and tights, dance wear and hand made bun covers.

Bring your still good, but outgrown dance shoes so others can wear them. Dance can be expensive, and children outgrow their dance shoes in the blink of an eye. Our shoe program helps us all keep the costs low.

See you there!
