Hello Everyone:

Winter has arrived! I thought it would miss us this year seeing as we had a whooper of a spring/summer 

Nonetheless, dancers are getting ready for their Christmas holidays! Please remember to keep moving and stretching over the break, it’s so important to keep up our training! Maybe invite some friends over and hold your own ballet, jazz, hip hop class?

It is so crucial that dancers have regular attendance in the New Year. We will be getting ready for our year end show – and we really need dancers in classes. I would dislike seeing a dancer not participate because their attendance is so poor.

Picture Day is now scheduled for Sunday May 7th – location to be announced. This is not mandatory, but we really appreciate those that come out even if they are not planning on purchasing pictures. It’s a great memento for dancers later on in life to look back at the peers they danced with.

I have included our annual order form for our GDG (Generation Dance Gear) Clothing. Please bring into office no later than February 1st! Hope you will all support the studio and purchase some cool swag to deck out in (Parents too!)

Northern Dance Off (A local Dance festival) will be taking place at Keyano Theatre this coming March 25 & 26. We would love to see everyone come out and help cheer on your favorite dancer! Tickets will be available at the door at time of event. Quite a few of our Tiny Tot dancers will be participating this year! So much fun and a great community event!

Please remember to check the lost and found as all left shoes and dance wear gets removed once the break begins! box located in changeroom!!

I am happy to announce the 2016-2017 Dancer of The Year is TAYLOR LOGAN!! In addition, we have titled our show “GOING WILD”. It will be a fantastic event as always. We will be teaming up with the local SPCA and hopefully providing them with some support as we highlight and feature some of 

their adoptable pets. We will also feature a silent auction throughout the show and  run a donation station set up with all proceeds going to the SPCA! Summer (my pup) really cannot wait for this show!! 

Ballet exams have been scheduled for Sunday March 19, Monday March 20 with Tuesday March 21 on reserve if we need it. Miss Lake our ballet teacher will be advising everyone who will be ready for exams this season along with payment of fees to her. Good Luck everyone!! 

Enjoy the Holidays! May you receive an abundance of joy, love and the cute little stuffy you wanted!!

Keep Dancin J Miss Kim

GOOD DAY TO EVERYONE!

Don’t forget to wear your Halloween Costumes tomorrow Tiny Tots!!

I am assuming everyone is well aquatinted with their teachers and classes by now, we are having a great time instructing! The studio has always been a second home to me and my staff and I am sure it is for most of you as well. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at kchome@shaw.ca

Again, go ahead and add us right away to all your social medias – links below!! You all have been coming to classes well prepared, don’t forget to have all the required attire if you are missing anything. I wanted to remind everyone to please try and contribute their .25 cents when filling their water bottles. The fresh bottled water is for everyone but we would really appreciate your help in affording it as we go through 5-7 jugs a week and any little bit of help would be great. 

This season our show will take place June 8/9/10, 2017 at Keyano Theatre. All rehearsals for the show will happen beginning Wednesday May 24th up until show so please make sure you are in town. We are excited for this Animal Show and will begin planning very shortly with costumes and choreography. We have also established a Picture Day (again try not to be absent) it will be Sunday May 7th (times and location TBA)

Coming the end of November is PARENT VIEWING WEEK!! November 21-26 Bring the Whole family and take as many pictures and videos of your dancer as you like for Grandma and Grandpa!!

Enjoy the next couple weeks of no snow! Who knows maybe mother nature will be kind to us!!
