We would like to give a warm 2018-2019 welcome to our new and returning families. We are so very excited to start our dance year on Saturday, September 8th. To kick off our year, please enjoy our first monthly newsletter.
Parking: We will be putting up a one-way sign, but in the meantime please enter through the front, veer right and go around back to exit the other side of the driveway. This will help with the flow of traffic during hectic studio hours and keep everyone safe. Please, no parking on the grass! There are sprinkler heads in the ground that we do not wish to be run over. Also, smoking is not permitted on studio grounds. Thank you for your cooperation.
Because barefoot feet touch our floor, please leave your shoes at the door! Our dancers are often grabbing a drink in between classes or entering the Reception area to change their shoes before heading back into the dance studio. Any gravel or sand then gets carried into the room with them, which is no fun to dance on! As dancers, family, and friends enter the studio, there is plenty of space for shoes on the benches with shoe racks to the left and on the shoe racks to the right. Please direct your dancer to use the shoe racks as we need to keep the mats clear for people to enter and exit. We’d hate for someone to trip! Thank you for your attention to this matter.
OPEN HOUSE: YOU’RE INVITED! Come join us at our OPEN HOUSE for fun, food and FREE trial classes! Check out our bounce house, meet our faculty, tour the studio, and find out why dancers at Joy of Dance are considered family! We will be happy to talk about fall classes with you. New and returning families are welcome to attend!!
Summer Dance Performance: Come check out how hard our summer dancers have worked this season at our annual Summer Dance Showcase! This year we are holding it at the studio. This is not a required performance, but we encourage all our summer dancers to invite friends and family to come see what they’ve been working so hard at all summer.
Team Intensives: Please check your inboxes for our team intensives August 27-29th. These intensives are mandatory for all Team/Troupe members and will provide students with a 1-hour master class and a head start on choreography for the year. It will help dancers feel more confident in their choreography by showtime as well as allow more time in class to work on technique.
Lee Town Fair: We are pleased to be offering another performance opportunity for our 2017-2018 Team dancers on Saturday, September 8th. We encourage all other Joy of Dance families to support us while enjoying the fair!
