We are looking forward, as we hope you all are, to our Ceili/Recital on June 1st. This event is completely sold out. To have a successful Tricky Tray we need your help in donating items to make baskets or in asking for a cash donation. Thank you to everyone who already has made a donation or took an ad or purchased tickets. We know the children will all do a fantastic job and we hope everyone has an enjoyable afternoon! A financial report will be available at class in June.
CEILI/RECITAL JOURNAL - please get your ad copy congratulating your child and jpeg photos in to me ASAP. Thank you!
BEGINNER SKIRT SETS
We have a few left so if you have not purchased one for the recital and would like to do so please email me ASAP and I can tell you if we have a size for you. If you have already purchased one in March, please make sure you have the black long sleeve scoop neck danskin purchased in time for the recital to wear. All dancers must wear white poodle dance socks. If you do not have them please let your teacher know this week so we can get some for you to purchase. If your child does not have the school skirt set or costume, please have them wear a skirt (no shorts) and blouse (skirt above the knee) and hair neatly back off of face. Thank you. Any other questions in regards to this please ask at class.
CONGRATULATIONS to Jillian Pursiano and George Ferguson who each won a Scholarship towards the Summer Workshop from our school funds.
