Fill out form….


Also, a reminder, please be sure to fill out the new Hold Harmless agreement for the performance. Students will not be allowed to perform without one. We have them at the studio and will have them at the theater during set up and rehearsal.

Call for treats!


I would like to ask families to please consider bringing baked goods to the performances. We always have a table set up for treats in the lobby. Please label if they are gluten/allergen free. Cookies and hand hold-able treats are preferred for ease of munching!
We will be moving to the theater on Tuesday around 1pm if anyone would like to help. Let me know if you can do so.
Thank you!

Performance news


Hello Dancers and families, I just did my best to create an event page on Facebook for the upcoming performances for you to share. Please invite all of your family and friends to come see us perform!
A reminder that we have a studio dress rehearsal this Tuesday at 4:30. Arrive, and put on costumes, no make up required, then the rehearsal will go from 5-6pm. Class as scheduled for Nina at 3:45, and classes as scheduled on Monday and Wednesday. If three days are too many, prioritize the dress rehearsal on Tuesday.
I also need everyone to fill out a special event Hold Harmless form as CR has set some new requirements for me to follow.

Thanks! See you soon.

Schedule plans, one change only


So after a brief but intense time working out the schedule issues, here is my decision. I will keep the Saturday and Sunday matinees as scheduled at 1pm, but change Friday to 5pm so families can enjoy the truck parade. And please remind me ahead of time next year.
Something I would like to point out though, is that we have been doing winter ballet shows for a long time now, and that when community plans are made, I think WE ought to be consulted before other events are planned on the same weekend! We deserve that consideration, in my opinion. Many families participate, as dancers, helpers, and audience, and we are a force to be reckoned with here in SoHum! (Count the kids). Just having my say…. Ha, maybe Santa wants to come to the theater!
Perhaps we can submit the performance schedules in September to the Chamber…. is it up and running these days? Or is there a better avenue for me to contact?

schedule change ideas for performances


Hi parents,
Darryl caught some scheduling conflicts for the show, and I like his suggestions. He says the lighted parade is at 7 on Friday, so can we do the show at 5? The teens will have to get rides from school to arrive in time to warm up, but that can be worked out.
Then he says Santa time conflicts with the matinees, so could the Saturday matinee become an early evening show as well…. I suggest 5, little kids arrive by 4:15 or so, teens much sooner, by 3:30.
Sunday would stay at 1.
Please give me some feedback if there are any major problems with the changes!

Important dates coming up!



We will hold rehearsals next week for all students on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 4:15, (November 12, 13, 14). These will be run-throughs of the entire show so that everyone can see how all the pieces are fitting together.  We ought to be done by 5:15.  Please come to at least one of these rehearsals, or all of them.

The following week is Thanksgiving vacation.  After that we will need to work hard, as the shows will be the week after!

Tuesday, November 27 there will be a rehearsal in costume, at the studio, for all dancers at 4:30.
