Monthly Newsletter – September 2019
We hope you had a great summer and we are so excited that you will be joining us for our 15th year! Dance & Music Classes start Tuesday, September 3rd. Our Academic Preschool starts the week of September 9th. We want you to settle into your classes as soon as possible. If you feel you are not in the appropriate class based on skill level, style, instrument, etc., please let us know! As long as there is an opening, we can transfer you to your desired class or you can add on additional classes. We want to make sure you are in the right class and are enjoying yourself! That is our first priority.
We are always striving to become a better Performing Arts Academy every day and your opinion matters to us. We have a comment box in our lobby at both locations and we do an annual survey in June. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you!

Dance Costumes Charged Thursday, September 26th: Female dancers will automatically be charged for costumes on Thursday, September 26th using your account on file. If your student will NOT be participating in our Winter or Spring Showcase, please let us know before Tuesday, September 24th. If you decide to order a costume at a later date, it is your responsibility to see our front desk to order this, if it is still available. Show dates and times are listed below.
2019 Winter Showcase Times: Please check our website for Showcase times by mid-September or we will have these displayed in our lobby Showcase binder. Please remember that we TRY to have siblings perform in the same show for those who registered before June 15th. We cannot guarantee this. If a sibling is scheduled to perform in a different Showcase, a credit will be posted to your APA account for the value of 4 tickets ($44) prior to your December 15th tuition payment. This is only for siblings, not for a student who is performing in more than 1 Showcase.
Costumes will be displayed in mid-September for our recreational classes. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
