December 2021 Newsletter
Happy December! Can you believe how fast this year has flown by? We have just a week and a half left of the Fall Semester, and we can’t wait for you all to see our production of Clara and the Nutcracker come to life on the Lincoln Center Stage next weekend! Please see below for important information regarding when your dancers last class is, enrollment info for Spring, and MORE!
Tuition was processed today, Wednesday, December 1st. Tuition was prorated since the studio will be closed December 12th to the end of the month (see below for when your dancers last class is). You do not need to do anything for this unless you received an email saying your tuition could not be processed.
2) WHEN IS MY DANCERS LAST CLASS:
Since next week is “Nutcracker Week”, the schedule will vary just a little bit, so we have broken classes down by days:
- 12/4: (Sat) Nutcracker Dress rehearsal at the studio **Still holding all regular Saturday morning classes (Tiny Tots, and Ballet) but no Pointe ?
- 12/6: (Mon) Regular class schedule
- 12/7: (Tues) Regular class schedule
- 12/8: (Wed) Nutcracker Dress rehearsal at Lincoln Center 4-9pm **All classes CANCELED
- 12/9: (Thurs) Regular class schedule with the exception of Fast Track **Int Ballet and Fast Track dancers rehearsal at theater
- 12/10: (Fri) NO CLASSES
- 12/11: (Sat) NO BALLET CLASSES **Still holding Tiny Tots
- 12/12-1/9: STUDIO CLOSED FOR WINTER BREAK
- 1/10: Classes resume for Spring Semester
3) SPRING SEMESTER ENROLLMENT:
Enrollment will automatically roll over to the Spring Semester. You do not need to “re-register” for classes. With that being said, with the start of Spring semester on the horizon, this is a wonderful time to add that Jazz or Hip Hop class your dancer has been interested in so don’t wait to add your dancer’s name to the wait list if they are interested in a class! All additional classes will have the opportunity to perform in our Spring Production! Spring enrollment will officially open up on Monday, January 3rd!
We also understand that things change and you may need to switch or drop a class. According to our drop policy online, we need a TWO-WEEK NOTICE in order for you to not be charged for the upcoming month. Since we will be charging tuition when the Spring Semester starts on Monday, January 10th, this means ALL DROP REQUESTS NEED TO BE IN BY MONDAY, MONDAY, DECEMBER 20TH. If you email us requesting to drop after this date, you will be charged tuition for January.
4) LOST AND FOUND:
The lost and found will be donated at the end of the semester! Please have your dancers go through it to collect anything that is theirs!
All things Nutcracker!
5) NUTCRACKER TICKETS:
