-The PDC Apparel order due date has been extended to Wednesday May 15th! Stop into the office to check out the samples and to put your order in!





-Please remember that May 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, 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.  If you have any questions about your bill please stop in to the office, call us at (315)274-9346 or email us at potsdamdanceco@gmail.com. You can alleviate any headaches in remembering to pay your tuition at the beginning of the month by signing up for our Square invoice system! Please stop in to the office or call us during office hours to register to be billed monthly for your tuition and to pay via a link from our secure, protected Square program!


-Another friendly reminder of  how important attendance is in class and how integral each student is to their routine. Without full attendance it is very difficult to progress properly in the routines. June is fast approaching and in order for everyone to feel prepared and confident for the Year End Recital I encourage you to pay close attention to your attendance in class, as you are each a very essential piece to the puzzle that we call a dance!


-Our April Student of the Month is…….ERICA BASFORD!

Erica has been chosen as our Student of the Month because she is courteous, kind hearted and friendly to her fellow dancers and teachers. She loves working hard both in and out of class and it definitely shows! Congratulations Erica on being named our April Student of the Month!


Recital will be here before we know it so keep up the hard work dancers! I can’t WAIT to see you all light up the stage with your talent, passion and smiles!



Dancingly Yours,

Kristen
