I hope you are grabbing the last bits of summer sunshine! How quickly is speeds by....
For those of you returning this will be old news, but a reminder now and then is helpful. For those of you new to AED, please feel free to ask questions!
CLASSES START: the 5th of September
REGISTRATION: we need a hard copy for your "John Hancock," thanks!
BUSES: please make sure you have posted on registration that you need your child picked up from the bus if that is the case! We pick up the Richmond bus daily but Smiley and Huntington buses are not a daily pick up. Please let us know!
SNACK CARDS: are available. If your child gets a snack, we will mark it on their card. .50 for granola bar, .25 for fruit gummies. If you do not want your child to have this option please let us know. Hungry children do not usually dance well so we tend towards giving them a snack ;)
AFTER CLASS CARE: is not a given. It is easily arranged but we need to ask a teen to be there for your child. Please do make sure we know that you will need the care. After we have set up the babysitting, please pay the teens directly :)
LEOTARD COLORS: We are not strict about leotard colors the first few weeks of dance as we are still sorting out children's classes. Inevitably one or two children switch, and to have already bought a leotard make it frustrating! Note the LEOTARD RESALE and LEOTARD ORDERING Dates are below.
HAIR:We would like ALL dancers to have their hair neatly pulled back while dancing. Please pack a brush and hair tie should your child have long hair :)
HIP HOP SNEAKERS: Clean please. NO ROCKS. It is painful to step on them in ballet flats and dangerous in pointe shoes.
CONTEMPORARY: IS harder than it looks...even accomplished ballerinas have to start at the beginning :) So excited we can finally offer a real program for you!
Just to keep us together on all of the updates:
*Spring Show and Nutcracker dates are always made after many hours of thought and conversation with our facilities. These are the dates that work for our venues and for the complexity of our high school students' schedules. We have not set specific times due to the probability of snow days!
Looking forward to another phenomenal year!
Due to the requests we have been having we are opening up an Intro to Jazz class for Jr High and High Schoolers!
Please note the schedule changes that have taken place:
Intro to Jazz: Wed 4:30-5:30
Ballet for Contemporary Thurs 4:30-5:30
Contemp 3 Friday 5:00-6:00
Looking forward to the new year!
