Thanksgiving

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We are especially thankful for you and all of your support.

8 Week Virtual Performance

We will be recording all routines with dancers in costume and putting them together in a multiple part video. These will be emailed to all currently registered dancers and are yours to keep free of charge.

Dates of recording are below. Please send your dancer in their costume. If they have multiple dances in the same evening, please send them in their first class costume.

If your dancer is new to our studio this season, they will not receive a costume for this performance (you will for year-end ☺) Please send your dancer in black tank or tee and black shorts or leggings.

Saturdays can wear Halloween costumes Saturday October 24th AND Saturday October 31st). Please make sure that they are costumes that will still allow the dancers to dance. Due to Covid we will not be handing out candy this year.

Adult Classes

Join our adult class! A fusion of stretch, jazz & hip hop. The 8-week session runs Thursday October 22nd to Thursday December 10th from 8:30-9:15. To keep this class sizes small and ensure everyone has lots of space to move (while being physically distanced of course), we are capping this class at 5. This class is great for beginner adults looking for a fun way to detox their mind, body, and soul! It’s not too late to sign up! The price is $80.00 + HST for the eight weeks.

Hygiene

We are hitting cold and flu season. Please remind your dancers to wash their hands often and to use proper hygiene. These are all important things to help stop the spreading of germs. A reminder to not send your dancer to class if they are sick.
