-Hello and welcome back! I hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas break! I look forward to an exciting 2019 with all of our family members at Potsdam Dance Company!
*Reminder that there WILL be classes Monday, January 21st (Martin Luther King, Jr Day.)
-Please remember that January’s tuition is now due. This is also a reminder that our studio software automatically adds a $5.00 late fee after the 10th of the month (the 18th of the month for January due to break), if you pay after the 10th please be sure to include the $5.00 late fee in order to avoid billing later, we appreciate your attention to having your tuition submitted in a timely manner. Costume payments are due January 31st. We will be emailing invoices for costumes January 12th. Your students costume will not be ordered until payment is made in full. If you have any questions about your bill please stop in to the office, call us at (315)274-9346 or email us at email@example.com.
-As winter is now upon us I would like to remind everyone of the Snow Day Policy for the studio. The policy states that a Snow Day is called at the director’s discretion. If there is inclement weather that prohibits our teachers and students traveling safely to and from the studio then a Snow Day may be called. All decisions will be made by 3pm and you will be informed via email and the studio Facebook page. Thank You for your understanding and support as making these decisions is never easy.
-It has been cold outside and that means it can be chilly inside as well. Please take care to wear extra layers to class in order to stay comfortably warm. Also, please wipe your feet on the way into the studio. When the dirt and salt track into the studio room, it makes for a lot of dirty (and slippery!) tights, shoes, and kids!
** On a similar note, please take into consideration that we share the back hallway and bathrooms with several other businesses. Be sure to keep both the hallway and bathrooms neat and tidy. We also ask that children are not left unattended in the hall and that dancers keep all of their belongings in the studio so that the hallway is clear of any clutter. We appreciate your cooperation with these matters!
-We will hold our next “Bring a Friend to Class” Week Monday January 21st thru Friday January 25th. Everyone is invited to bring a friend to participate in their dance class…they will be dancing right along side you so be sure to tell them to wear something comfortable and bring a pair of socks to dance in. Share your love of dance with your friends and encourage them to join us at Potsdam Dance Company! Any student who brings a friend to class during Bring a Friend Week will be entered in a raffle to win a PDC Gift Certificate! You will be entered for every CLASS you bring a friend to! We want to share what we love about PDC with all your friends!
-There is still time to sign up for classes! Did you see a class at the Christmas Demo that you enjoyed? Did you take a workshop we offered and fall in love with a new style of dance? You can join those classes and see what all the rage is about! Inquire in the office about enrolling in an additional class today!
-Our Kinder Dance (3 year old) Class Spring Session begins Saturday February 9th. And our Pre Kinder Dance (2 year old) Class Spring Session begins Saturday March 30th. Please share with any tiny dancers that you think may be interested in playing, socializing, and learning some fun dance moves along the way!
-I would like to announce our STUDENT OF THE MONTH for December...Alyssa Callahan!
Alyssa is one of our younger dancers but is a responsible and polite young lady! She did a great job in learning and remembering the steps to her Christmas demonstration routine. She also attends her little sisters Pre-Kinderdance class to guide and inspire her. She is passionate and enthusiastic about dance and is a great leader in her class!
CONGRATULATIONS Alyssa on being named our December Student of the Month!
I want to let all the dancers know how extremely PROUD I am of all of you-your Christmas demonstrations were absolutely spectacular! Your dedication certainly and hard work paid off! I am excitedly looking forward to our Year End Recital! Congratulations dancers!!!
