DanceStation:  March 2024 Newsletter

Congrats to all Cecchetti students and to our CCA competition ladies Ava Baldwin, Ella Mae Parsons, Aileen Dixon, and Maddy Tomasovich! Job well done everyone!!!

Nutcracker pictures/DVD’s and flashdrives will be available in the lobby for pick up on Monday, March 11th

Attendance.  Now that recital time is here, it is very important to have excellent attendance.  Please try your best to attend every class possible in these weeks that the dancers are learning their choreography. As stated earlier in the year, the week before the recital has several mandatory rehearsals that need to be attended, so mark your calendars now to be around the week before the performances!!!!

The DanceStation App is back up and running. If you are a new family since January you will need to go to the Apple app store or Google play to look for our DanceStation app that looks like our teal dancer logo. It is free, just download the app and make sure you allow notifications. Also you can go into settings, apps, and change the notification banners to persistent. The app has all of our newsletters, calendar for the studio, and you can also log in to the parent portal and pay through the app as well.

Broadway for ballet 6 will start Tuesday, April 2nd from 7:15-8pm, the cost is $25 per month April- June. We are doing Honey, Honey from Mamma Mia.

Broadway Jr is for ballet levels 2-5 and will start Tuesday, April 2nd from 4-5pm. It is a 9 week class/workshop and is $85 total, due on the first day of class. This includes a $25 costume rental for the recital. We are performing Hard Knock Life from Annie.

 Spring Break is Tues March 26th– April 1st (Tues – Easter Monday).  The studio calendar is located on the app if you are ever unsure.

A Costume deposit of $55 was due at the end of January, and the remaining balance owed will be added to your parent portal account at the end of March to be due with April tuition. To access your balance, just log into your parent portal on April 1st and it will show your costume balance. Even if you are enrolled in Auto-pay, you will still have to manually log in and pay your balance. Auto-pay only pulls tuition every month.

Recital Picture Day is always the Sunday before the recital. This year that is Sunday, June 2nd.  Times for each class will be posted in early May, so please tell us of any huge conflicts before then (once the times are posted the schedule cannot change).

The week leading up to the recitals will have extra rehearsals/dress rehearsals here at the studio and at the Hett. There are no regular classes that week, just the larger full-cast rehearsals to work on our 2 different story ballets. We require a larger rehearsal in the big studio to put the ballets in order before we head to the Hett (the auditorium we perform in).  It makes things much easier when we get to the Dress Rehearsals on stage.  Exact days/times will be in the May newsletter. We also included the mandatory rehearsal week in your recital contract you signed back in January, so that there would be no surprises.

Dress Rehearsals at the Hettenhausen Center for the Arts are Wed June 5th, Thur June 6th and Friday morning/early afternoon on June 7th.  Recitals are June 7th and 8th.
