Tuition and Costume Deposits
This month’s tuition deadline is Thursday, Nov. 15.
Each student will need to pay a $40 recital costume deposit by November 29. This deposit, along with all current tuition, must be paid in order for a costume to be ordered for your child. We are taking measurements this month, and costumes will be ordered during December. Costume balances will be issued in January after all orders have been placed. Please realize that all unpaid tuition from previous months must be paid before money will be accepted for a costume deposit.
Elevations will be closed Friday, Nov. 16 through Sunday, November 25 for the Thanksgiving holidays.
Father/Daughter, Mother/Son Dance
For our Elevations Christmas party, we will once again be hosting a “Father/Daughter, Mother/Son” dance. Please mark your calendars and inform your date, whether it’s dad, grandpa, brother, uncle, etc. It will be held on the evening of Friday, Nov. 30. (See official invitation on back of this letter!). We do want to reiterate that only each student’s “date” should attend this event with him or her. We only have space to accommodate each student plus one. Also when a third person tags along, the entire dynamic of our event is altered. This is our Christmas gift to our students, and we want it to be very special and fun. Please be understanding in helping us keep this event as it was traditionally designed to be.
Ozark Christmas Parade
Don’t forget the Ozark Christmas Tree Lighting and Parade on Tuesday, December 4 at 6:00pm. An earlier letter gave details of this event. Those who are not performing downtown after the tree lighting are welcome to ride on our float, which will begin on Broad Street and end at Super Sav. Parents are invited to ride along with their children.
There will be no actual classes on parade day. However, we will have a rehearsal that afternoon at the studio for the performers prior to the parade. Angel performers (Pre- and Kinder- students) will rehearse 3:30-4:00, and all other parade performers will rehearse 4:00-4:45. Then students will be released to their parents to meet downtown.
Sounds of the Season Concert
The above mentioned letter also gave details of the “Sounds of the Season” community Christmas concert in which those same groups will also perform. The concert is at 7pm on Dec. 8 at the Ozark Civic Center. The Cheernastics II, Hip Hop B, and jazz performers will have a rehearsal at the studio on Thursday, Dec. 6, 6:00-6:45pm. Then there will be a dress rehearsal for the entire show at the civic center on Friday, Dec. 7 at 6pm.
Angel costumes, sweatshirts, and Santa hats for the parade and concert must be ordered by Thursday, November 8. This is a strict deadline!
Thank you to all who participated, raised money, and helped out with our United Way Dance-A-Thon last month. We are very proud to announce that we were able to present $1500 to the United Way on behalf of our dancers and their families. Congratulations to Trinity Tyrues for being our Wal-Mart gift card winner for the highest funds raised. It is great to be able to raise money for a great cause and have a great time doing it! All those who came and danced seemed to have had a blast!
