Valentines Spirit Week
Support the Pirouette Dance Academy Scholarship Fund and pay $5 (CASH ONLY) to wear Pink, Red, or anything for Valentines Day ALL WEEK!! This will be the week of 2/14-2/19!
Just a reminder: if there is no class or we decide to go virtual due to the weather, it will be put on the studio voicemail no later than 3:30 PM during the week and 7:30PM on Saturday. We will also email and post on all social media outlets. Please call the studio if you are unsure.
Some costumes have started making their arrival at the studio. Traditionally, we would do a costume week but due to the current circumstances, we cannot accommodate that many people in the building at one time. We have come up with this plan: As costumes come in we will send a text that students will be getting them in class. You are welcome to come in and help them get dressed and see the costume. We will then have them try on the costume and do the dance to ensure everything is OK. Once they are approved by Miss Kiirsten or Miss Jocelyn we will send you an email with any directions or notice of a special circumstance. Please note that due to the supply chain issues this year, we CANNOT exchange or return any costumes. Multiple costumes have already been changed from the original selection due to the late ship dates and we cannot have costumes come in after the Recital.
Tights for Costumes
The costume book is ever changing until the final copy is printed and posted. I understand people like to buy tights ahead of time but please be aware once the costume comes in we may change the tights based on how it looks. We have also changed about 20 costumes from their original so the tights might be different as well. If you purchase tights now, they might change for Recital and we DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS. Once the final costume book is out, it will be emailed to you and posted again!
When we email out the dance videos home to parents, it is not only so you can see their progress but also as a tool to help kids practice at home. It would be very helpful if they referenced the videos at home for extra practice before they come to class each week. If you are not getting videos, please let us know.
Music for kids to practice
Besides sending home videos, we will be offering the sale of your child’s cut Recital music on a USB flash drive. You are welcome to look the songs up but 99% of the music is an edited version of the original song for various reasons. The cost is $7 plus tax. WE ARE ALSO OFFERING THE ENTIRE RECITAL SOUNDTRACK (Over 50 Songs!) FOR JUST $20 plus tax! Please fill out the google form below if you are interested in purchasing recital music for your child to practice with at home.
If your child is going to be absent for class, please call or email us to make us aware. If you know of any vacations or days they will not be here please let us know and we can submit ahead of time. Excessive absences may result in mandatory private lessons at a cost of $25 each.
February Fitness Challenge
We will be doing a February Fitness Challenge for anyone who wants to participate! Everyday we will set a new goal that we will post on social media. Once you complete the goal, tag yourself or comment in either our Instagram or Facebook post to enter to win a month of fitness for FREE. Every time you tag/comment, that is one more chance for you to win! This is open to EVERYONE at the studio, not just our fitness clientele! Winner will be drawn and announced on March 1st!
