This is our final newsletter of the 2018-2019 season. Please read through the email in its entirety as it has important information. It has been an amazing year with you all and we appreciate your continued support of CDA and hope to see everyone back for an exciting 2019-2020 Season!!
Tuition was processed yesterday, May 2nd. You did not need to do anything for this unless you received an email saying that your tuition could not be processed. Please note that if we have not received your last month’s payment, your dancer will not be able to participate in the Recital.
2) PARENT OBSERVATION WEEK REMINDER:
This is a friendly reminder that this week is Parent Observation Week for Ballet and Hip Hop classes for the entire class time. In your dancers observation, we will be handing out parent packets with important recital info, progress reports, class placements for next year, etc. so please try to have at least one parent attend.
Next week, May 6th-11th, will be Jazz, Jazz/Lyrical and Tiny Tots parent observations. For Jazz and Jazz/Lyrical, you are welcome to watch the dancers entire class and for Tiny Tots, our teachers will ask you to come in for the last 15 minutes!
3) VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:
We are in need of backstage volunteers for our upcoming shows! We have two shows of Wizard of Oz so if your dancer is in the 2:00 show and you can volunteer for the 7:00 show (or vice versa), it would be greatly appreciated! You do not need a ticket if you are volunteering and can watch from the wings! Volunteers will need to be at the Lincoln Center an hour and a half prior to show time for briefing and class assignment. You can email us at info@
4) TIGHT ORDERS:
In your dancers costume info email, you should have received 3 options for getting tights for the upcoming shows! We have attached the order form to this newsletter for those who would like to place an order through CDA rather than buying them online or going to Boulder Body Wear. Please note that these forms are due by THURSDAY, MAY 9TH! THE LAST DAY TO ORDER ANYTHING FOR THE SHOW (SHOES, TIGHTS, NUDE LEOTARDS, ETC) WILL BE THURSDAY, MAY 9TH!
5) PHOTO DAY/FORMS:
Photo and dress rehearsal day is coming up! Photos for Tiny Tots will be on Friday, May 17th, and photos for Levels 1-8 and Fast Track will be Saturday, May 18th. After the dancers have run their dances, they will be walked over to the Green studio where they will then get their photos taken! We will be having Garland Photography back and we ask that although you may not be purchasing photos, that all dancers participate in the group shot! We have attached the order form to this email!
