?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Hairpieces to the Rescue
Looking for an easy way to do your dancer’s hair for recital and pictures? Try a hairpiece! Put up hair in a bun, attach a curly scrunchie or another available style and you are set! Just make sure the hair piece is secured with hair pins for the show. Lots of colors are available in the WDC Boutique.



Recital Packets

Dancers will be receiving their recital packet in class starting Friday, March 1st. This packet will include all the need to know recital information including recital date/time, dress rehearsal date/time, ticket info, picture info and much, much more. Please look for the packet and read thoroughly through the information. Thank you!!

Monthly Themes for Tots, Preschool, and Kindergarten Classes:
Our theme this month for tots, preschool, and kindergarten classes is: “Tropical Dance Party!”. We will have special songs, games, activities, along with dance specific skill goals and life/social skill goals that will be worked on each month. Tropical Week is March 4th-9th- dancers in tots, preschool, & kindergarten classes are invited to wear their best summer, beach attire!

Wingman For Dance:
We are excited to continue using the Wingman For Dance Program with our 1st/2nd grade and older classes! Wingman inspires empathy, compassion, kindness, and inclusion. Each month will have a new focus with various activities. March’s focus will be on opportunities to serve as an individual and as a team.

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.Other brands may also work as long as they look the same as the Converse brand and do not include any additional colored detailing. 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: March 28th – April 3rd, 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!


Picture Week

Individual and class photos will be taken Thursday, March 28th – Wednesday, April 3rd 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 with their recital packet starting Friday, March 1st. 


Spring Break
Spring break will be from Monday, March 11th – Saturday, March 16th. Dancers will not have class on these dates with the exception of Wednesday, March 13th due to the snow day make up.

Due to Wednesday classes being cancelled last week for a second time this season, we are scheduling make up classes on Wednesday, March 13th. This date was originally scheduled to be a week off for Spring Break. Classes will be held at their usual times on this date.

If your dancer(s) will be out of town and unable to attend class on Wednesday, March 13th they may attend another class on a different day of the week before or after Spring Break. Please contact the studio to determine the appropriate make up class(es) for them.
