Dance at Disney Updated Information!

I’ve decided to allow dancers and families to arrange their own travel to the resort. Removing the airfare lowers the cost significantly! Here is the updated information.

If you missed the meeting: Here is some of the information you missed:
FundRaisers: We will do several fund raisers. If you are interested in leading one, please get with me. The only rules are that it needs to be available to the entire team and that I must be aware of it.

You can drive or fly down yourself. If you are interested in flying with a group, let me know as our travel agent said that they would be happy to help some of us to get a decent rate.

This is how the trip works: We practice our routine before the trip, everyone arrives at the resort on the designated date (you can arrive as early as you want since Disney has a service that will hold your luggage until your room is ready). You are on your own as a family to park hop as you want. Friday Nov. 24th (day after Thanksgiving) depending on when we are scheduled to perform, the dancers will get ready, we will have a separate bus for the dancers and myself, we (dancers and myself only) will be taken to a backstage area at Disney to prepare (practice again, fix costumes and makeup) Parents will use Disney transportation to go to Downtown Disney Waterside Stage. The bus we have rented will bring us to the actual stage when it is close to our performance time. We will perform, the bus will take us back to the staging area where dancers will need to change back into street clothes since Disney will not allow them to be in the parks in costume.
After that, sometimes we use the bus to take us to Universal Studios or Sea World (we have the bus the entire day, that is part of our cost)
Then everyone is on their own again to vacation and return home!

In order to participate in the routine, you must book the trip with the group. I am still checking on the option to add a food package, but if that doesn’t work, last time, I just ordered groceries to be delivered to my room and they were there when I arrived. The rooms have a refrigerator (small one)

Recital and Costumes

Parents, you should know if your student’s class performs in show A (11:00am) or show B (3:00pm) or Both on Saturday May 20, 2017. You should also know that dress rehearsal (required for ALL students) is Tuesday May 16, 2017.  Approximate Call time for Dress Rehearsal is as follows: Ages 2-6 6:00, Ages 7-11 7:00, Ages 12 and up 8:00.  All events are held at the St. Johns HS Auditorium.  Seating and tickets will go on Sale after Spring Break: New this year: tickets will be reserved/assigned seating and will be purchased online through a link that will be provided in the April newsletter.

Recital Costumes have begun to arrive.  I am handing out costumes to classes when I have all sizes for the students.  Please remember that costumes are not to be worn or played in until the recital.  However, I am scheduling the week of February 27-March 3 as a time for everyone to wear their costumes in class while working on routines.  It is a fun way to break up the month, when students often get tired of working on routines.  I recommend bringing them, then changing into them.  

Pictures are Saturday March 11th at the dance studio.  The time schedule for each class is attached and posted at the studio and on the website.  We strive to be ON TIME so please be prepared for your picture time.  It is not required to purchase pictures, but I still ask that you come get your picture taken with the group so that we can have a complete group shot.  Order forms will be handed out in February.  

It is recommended that students wear a nude color leotard under costumes to maintain modesty.  Any student that CHANGES THEIR COSTUME backstage or in a dressing room IS REQUIRED to wear a nude color leotard under costumes to maintain modesty.

CELEBRATION OF DANCE: February 20-24 This week students are invited to BRING A FRIEND TO DANCE, bring a treat to share, have a pizza party after dance- anything to make it special.  Many students are getting the “Winter blues” by this time, so we spend this week having fun, having contests, working of other stuff, showing off for friends, etc.

 

Missed Lessons: Please remember that if you miss a class due to scheduling conflict, sickness or bad weather, you may make it up in another level similar to your student’s class. Most classes are working hard on recital choreography so your student will be learning other routines than what their class would be doing. This can be encouraging AND FUN to some students and discouraging to others, speak to your student and the instructor if you feel there may be a problem. No need to let us know, just show up and tell the instructor that your student is making up a class and we will work it out.  The absolute best time to come to a make up class is the Week of Celebration of Dance.  February 20-24.  

Also remember that just because school may be cancelled, dance may NOT be.  Check the website, facebook and email before not coming to class.  The studio always respects your decision to drive in or not.
