We started our Christmas season off with a fun Father/Daughter, Mother/Son dance with many of you and look forward to more excitement during this busy but “most wonderful time of the year”!
Christmas Parade and Concert
Please review last week’s handout stating the details of the Ozark Christmas Parade on Dec. 4 and the “Sounds of the Season” concert on Dec. 8, as well as the rehearsals for each of these.
Our float entry is #9. Float riders will need to find our “Frosty” float on Broad Street (likely closer to the downtown end of Broad Street) at 5:20. Angels, jazz, Cheernastics II, and Hip Hop B performers will meet downtown at 5:20.
Tuition and Costume Deposits
We will begin to place recital costume orders this first week of December. If your child has any outstanding balances, no costume will be ordered for him or her. There are still quite a number that have not paid costume deposits; please check to see that you have paid yours. Also, if your dancer has missed several classes in a row, please make sure that he or she has been measured for costumes in class. If not, please make sure they come by ASAP to be measured!
This month’s tuition deadline will be Monday, Dec. 17, since the 15th falls on a Saturday. Please make every effort to submit your payment by this deadline.
We do still have extra angel costumes, sweatshirts, and Santa hats if anyone wishes to purchase them.
Parent Visitation Days
Coming up, parents will have an informal opportunity to visit their child’s dance classes at Elevations during our last week of classes before Christmas break. These classes will be Monday, Dec. 17 through Thursday, Dec. 20. For these visitation classes you are welcome to stay for the entire class or part of a class or classes, whatever is convenient for you. We simply ask that all attendees use common courtesy in terms of cell phone use, conversing, etc. in order to keep distractions to a minimum. Feel free to bring your cameras!
Elevations will be closed Friday, December 21 through Sunday, January 6. Classes resume on Monday, January 7.
Don’t forget that dancewear can make great Christmas gifts! We still have lots of cute leotards, accessories, cover-ups, and costumes to choose from to update your dancer’s wardrobe! Tights can even be great stocking stuffers!
Merry Christmas from Elevations!
