Good Afternoon! Next week we will begin our 2018-2019 dance season and we are very excited about what’s in store for our dancers! If you have any questions before we start please don’t hesitate to ask. Statements will be sent out today via email. You can pay via cash, check, or card in studio the first week of classes each month or sign up for automatic bank draft. If you are paying with cash or card please see the manager on duty at the time of your dancer’s class and make sure to get a receipt. An electronic receipt will be sent within 24 hours of your in studio payment to confirm that it has posted to your account. If you make payment and do not receive the electronic receipt please let me know. If you are paying via check in studio you can turn it into the tuition box in the lobby. If you are a returning student and have done bank draft in the past and would like to continue the draft please reply to the statement and let me know. If you wish to set up automatic draft please leave a voided check in the tuition box next week. I will contact you to confirm.
Our website has information such as calendar, dress code, staff biographies, and will have each newsletter (like this one) that goes out. It will also have information on our upcoming performances. I’m always here to help with any questions or concerns you may have so please feel free to contact me!
Thanks so much for choosing to dance with us this year…it’s going to be a great one!

Good Afternoon!
I wanted to officially announce that this year's Hope for the Holidays performance will be different from years past in that it will be a professional performance directed by a professional artist. Our Master Teacher and Artistic Director of Civic Ballet  Thom Yzaguirre will be directing an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Snow Queen'. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Thom I have attached his biography so you can become more familiar with him and understand that this is a fantastic opportunity for our dancers to work with him. In particular we need advanced dancers to sign up to participate so if you think your dancer will want to please email the answers to the questions below back to me by September 24th. 
The production weekend is November 16th (dress rehearsal) and 18th (performance) at Tupelo High School's PAC. If you are not aware of Hope for the Holidays please visit our website. 
Thanks and have a great day!
