Newsletter_icon2Tappin’ Times – February 2018

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????“Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.”

I LOVE DANCE BECAUSE….fill in the blank!  Valentine Hearts are available for dancers to fill out with reasons why they love dance! Hearts are available at the front desk and will be hung in the lobby during the month of February.

Dancer may also send their dance teacher(s) some love! Look for special notes you can fill out and put in your teacher’s “I Love to Dance Week” mailbox near the front desk.

Dance Class Times: Often times kids are coming from school or another activity and it may be hard to get them to class on time.  Whenever possible, we would appreciate dancers arriving on time. This is especially hard in our younger classes whose students can become distracted easily.  If a dancer is late, we ask that they enter the class between songs.  Thanks so much for helping us keep our students on task in their class!

Did you know…we offer free WiFi in the WDC waiting area to get online while you are waiting for your dancer?  The network name is “dance4”. It is password protected – the password is “wdcdance”. Woodbury Dance Center is on Facebook?  Join today and see pics, events and more.

Picture week:  Individual and class photos will be taken Monday, April 2nd through Saturday, April 7th at Woodbury Dance Center.  Classes will not be held on those dates due to picture scheduling.  ALL classes will have their pictures scheduled at a time similar to their regular class day/time (including morning & Friday/Saturday classes). The scheduled picture day and time for each class will be distributed in March.

Recital and Dress Rehearsal Dates have been posted!  Please click HERE to view the recital schedule.  Recital ticket Information will be included in your recital packet which will be handed out in class the beginning of March.

Recital Music/Costumes:  A copy of your dancers recital music will be available online in March.  We are anticipating that costumes will be passed out the week of March 12th.

Hip Hop shoes: Dancers in recreational classes with Hip Hop and boys only classes with Hip Hop will be required to purchase black hi top converse shoes with white soles for recitals. These shoes will not be available through WDC. Dancers will need to purchase them through local retail stores.  They are often sold at Famous Footwear, Kohl’s and JC Penney as well as many online retailers.

Shoes will need to be purchased prior to picture week: April 2nd – 7th, as dancers will need to wear shoes in pictures. Shoes should only be worn for pictures, dress rehearsals and recitals.

Please let us know if you have any questions.  Thank you!
