Class Attendance: There are approximately eight weeks of class time remaining before the Spring Recital. Weekly attendance is very important to ensure that your dancer has ample time to learn and perfect their dance for the performance. If you know your child will be missing classes between now and the show, please let their instructor know.
Volunteers: volunteers are needed to help back stage during both shows the day of the recital, and during rehearsals. You can sign up for the performance of your choice or for both shows and for rehearsal days. A sign-up sheet will be posted on the counter in the lobby soon. Thank you in advance for your help and support!
Shoe Orders: please check to see if your dancer will need to order new shoes before the spring recital!
Costumes: the costumes will begin to arrive soon but will be held until all of the costumes have arrived. The first week of May all costumes will be handed out, along with the recital “hand-outs” which will be included the rehearsal schedules, picture order forms, picture day schedules, and summer schedules. Please take time to read all of the information included. Tights are included with the costumes again this year.
Class Pictures: will be taken at Klamath Dance by: Vallejos Photography on Friday, May 10th, and Saturday, May 11th. A schedule and price list will be handed out to the students. All students are encouraged to attend picture day to get a group photo taken of their class so we can hang a copy on the “Wall of Fame”, and so that any student ordering a picture package can receive a picture of their class mates as well. You do not have to purchase pictures if you do not wish to.
Costume Balances: all account balances need to be paid in full in order for your dancer to receive his/her costume. Check with Michelle or Becky for a current balance. Thank you!
Verify Student’s Spelling of Names for the Program: Please take the time to verify the correct spelling of your dancer’s name as you would like to see it appear in the recital program. You can find the spelling of your dancer’s name printed beside the picture of their class costume in the blue binder on the front counter. Please feel free to make changes at this time on the class costume pages.

Did You Know?! The first Swan Lake Ballet was performed at the Bolshoi on March 4, 1877, and was a complete failure. It took eighteen years before it was performed as a success!
What A Smile Can Do! A smile lends beauty to the face and a sparkle to the eye that age and time cannot erase as all the years slip by.
Smiles of friendliness and love are always a delight and have the capacity of making spirits light. A smile can chase the blues away and also dry a tear when soothing words are hard to say to someone we hold dear.
Dancers & Nutrition: Calories! Calories are a way of measuring energy in food. Just like inches and feet are ways of measuring height. So, why do so many people count calories? Unlike inches and feet, more are not necessarily good. Energy comes from different sources in food such as protein, carbohydrates and fat. The problem comes when too many of your calories come from fat. Most people that are counting calories are just measuring how much fat they take in. Luckily, the majority of people who do physical activities after school, like dance or sports, do not need to count calories. In fact, no one should ever change or start a diet without talking to a doctor, dietitian and parents. All you need to do is eat a balanced diet!
Attendance: There are approximately 13 more weeks of class left before the recital. It is very important to attend all of the remaining classes left before the recital to assure that your dancer learns the dance to perform in the recital. If you know that your dancer will not be present for any of the classes, please let their instructor know so we do not worry about their attendance. If a student is missing classes regularly, a phone call will be made to check on their whereabouts. Only 3 class absences (with prior notice) are allowed. If a dancer misses 6 classes they will not be allowed to dance in the recital. Please communicate with your instructor!
Parent’s Observation Week: there is NO parent’s observation for March since we have a short month due to spring break. We apologize for any inconvenience.
March Tuition: March tuition is due by March 10, 2019.

Costumes: if you would like to see what your dancer’s spring recital costume looks like, thumb through the blue binder in the front office. While you are looking at the costumes, please double check to see if we spelled your dancer’s name correctly. Feel free to change the names if they are spelled wrong. These are the spellings that will be used in the spring recital program and we do not want to make an error.
