Team and Troupe students will have their Sole to Soul event on Monday November 21st from 4-6PM!




4. Inclement Weather Reminder- Everyone

As we are approaching snow season, we want to remind everyone how to know about any inclement weather cancellations. Most of the time if schools are closed, the studio will be closed as well, but not always.  Please see below how you will be notified.


In the case of closure, we will:

*Post on Facebook/Instagram

*Send out an e-mail roughly 2 hours before the start of class.

*Send a push notification on our app


If it’s more than 2 hours before classes begin, please wait to get in touch with us. Sometimes condition change throughout the day so we like to make sure we have the most up-to-date information before making a call. We promise we will reach out!

Please note, per our policies, Joy of Dance is not responsible for cancellations due to bad weather, however, students are always welcome to make up any missed classes at another time!  Simply send us an email or text to preschedule the makeup so we don’t have too many makeups on the same night.



5. Boots & Slippers- Everyone who uses the lobby

Cold and bitter weather is on the horizon whether we like it or not. Please remember to take off your mucky boots when entering the studios. We understand feet get cold in the winter, so feel free to bring slippers into the studio to wear while you wait for your dancer!


6. Stage-Ready Investment-Everyone in performances

Special Announcement!!  Friday, January 20th we will be holding a PJ dance party at Dover High School! This is a great way for Winter Showcase dancers and families to get familiar with the space, spend some time on stage, and have lots of fun dancing and playing games with their friends! The party will be split up by age and the schedule will be out by December 1st!


8. Lost & Found- Everyone

Please check the lost and found and water bottle graveyard in the white cubbies. Any items left at the studio will be donated over Thanksgiving break.




9. Acts of Kindness: Food Drive- Everyone

Next time you go grocery shopping, why not pick up a couple of items for those in need this holiday season? We will have a food drive drop-off in the studio for the month of November that will be going directly to the Lee Church Congregational & The Barrington Food Pantry. Items needed include (but not limited to): baked beans, snack crackers, canned fruit and vegetables, stuffing, pie crust mix, instant oatmeal, hygiene products etc. For every item brought in, you can enter to win a Joy of Dance swag bag! Please see the front desk receptionist to fill out your tickets. Drawing will be held on 12/1!




10. Try Everything Special!- Everyone

During any week in the month of November, you can sign up for a free class in a new style! For our Dance With Me and Tiny Stars dancers who are not already signed up twice per week, this is your chance to try a second class per week.  This helps to build confidence, and strength, and meet new friends! You never know what other dance styles you might fall in love with!
