Team Newsletter – March 2018

As we are fast approaching the end of our school year, our newsletters are especially important.  Here are a few things to be aware of: 

All of our students will receive a free t-shirt in June.  This year’s shirt is mint green.  If you (parents) would like to order one, please pay at our front desk by Monday, April 9th.  They are $20 plus tax, add $2 for 2XL or 3XL.  T-shirts are unisex so they run bigger.  Note: ALL Students will receive a FREE one.  Parent t-shirts will be available for pick up the last week of dance classes in June at your location.   

At the end of this month we will be closed for Spring Break.   Our Spring Break closing dates are March 30th through April 5th.   Classes will resume on Friday, April 6th.  Please continue reading for more important information!  

More Important Info For You To Know


Student of the Makenzie Paprocki Makenzie improves daily because she works really hard in class and applies critiques quickly. Makenzie asks questions during class to help her better understand what she needs to be doing. She does a great job in the studio and consistently practices at home! We enjoy having her in class because of her great laugh and personality.  She is also very respectful.  Makenzie was nominated by all her coaches.
