Classes start this week!

I’m so excited for classes to start this week. If you still need to get shoes, there are several options:
1. Bottoms Up in Okemos on the corner of Okemos Rd and Hamilton,
2. Order them from the studio (I’ll be placing a shoe order at the end of this week Sept 12). A sizing kit is in the front of the dance room under the bench.
3. Order them from Discount Dance Supply http://Www.discountdance.com
Use the studio code TP31523 to get 10 percent discoun

In all cases, be sure note that dance shoes size differently than street shoe sizes, especially for younger students. Often the dance shoe needs to be 1-2 sizes bigger than the street shoe.

If you do not have shoes yet this week, please still come to class. There are used shoes in the front window of the dance studio that students can borrow or purchase. $10 ea

Recital Video Order Form

I’m very excited to offer recital videos again this year. I have teamed up with Okemos HS teacher Matt Ottinger to video both performances. He videos a few other local recitals and my personal experience with him is when he video’s Mid Michigan Family theater performances that my daughter participates in. He assures me that he will capture all the students onstage and will have a track menu on the finished disk. He also claims to have heard some horror stories about videos taking months to receive and assures me that he will have videos ready within 3 weeks of the recital. I am excited about that!
I will handle the video orders and will just give him a final count as to how many of each performance we need. Please fill out the video order form and turn it in with check payable to Heather’s Dance Company no later than the day of the performance.
