**We need everyone who has not paid tuition  to please pay tonight!  You must pay before our Revue!

Dear Parent, May 18, 2015

After our Big Show performs all girls in preschool, kindergarten, 1st & 2nd will stay on the side of the gym floor to line up for their ballet numbers.  If your child comes up by you please send her down or she will miss her ballet number. All dancers and Cheerleaders will line up in the hall behind the gym where it says “dancers only” - go around the corner.  There will be signs of each of the ages,  That is  were she will go to line up for each of her dances and cheers even preschool. Jackie will be by the preschool sign for the Glow in the Dark number to  line preschool girls up.You will need to take your child to her.

Please have someone help your child change her costume fast so she can be ready for her next performance.  We are trying not to have any breaks so our Revue gets over on time.  After the Glow in the Dark number we have a 8 minute slide show of our performances through the year.  Your girls will love it. After the slide show we have a treat for your child to take home.

We will have a sign up sheet for our summer classes and solo’s at the table where we will be selling DVD’s, or you can text us.  Summer  classes will start  the 2nd week in June.  We will be teaching 8 weeks - we will post the dates and times on our blog. We will be offering technique and flexibility classes also gymnastics. Classes will be divided according to their level. Technique is where your child will become a better dancer.  
The DVD’s will have our entire Revue with the slide show that will be shown at the Revue, plus the entire slide show with all the pictures sent into Karly and the pictures we took through out the year.

Parade practice will start after July 15th  - we will post it on our blog.

We will have a registration day on Thursday August 6th at our Studio.  You will need to register your child on this day the classes you want her to take in order to keep her spot in dancing.  When the classes are full we will not be able to accept any more students.  Times for registration will be posted on our blog for each age group.

Specialty dance teams will be picked this summer.  These teams are for girls who want to excel on a higher technical level.  Technique and Flexibility classes will be required to be on these teams

We are considering in taking some of our cheer groups to Nationals in California and we are considering in taking all of our Dance groups to Disneyland Spring 2016. If you are interested in either one of these performances let us know by email , text, or call and let us know. It is not mandatory to go to either one of these performances to be in Va-Dels.

We love all our dancers!  It has been a great privilege to teach your child this year.  Thanks for giving us the opportunity.

**We will be having a Va-Del swim party at the Brigham City pool for all of our dancers and a slumber party at the studio for the older girls in June.  We will post the date and info on our blog and face book.  You need to be friends with Va-Dels Dance on face book to get the info.
Thanks again for an awesome year!!!!

****We will be performing the Finale after our big show in the dark number at the end of our Revue.  We need every dancer to stay to the end.  The girls love it!  If your child is in our younger group you need to help her with a cute pose for when she is spotlighted.  You can purchase glow in the dark necklaces at the Dollar Store/everyone needs one to throw in the air at the end. - they love wearing them.

Dear Parent,

Please - No Parents! (except the ladies that are helping us).  Every girl must be to this practice if she wants to perform on our Revue!  We need every girl to be on time so we are done on time!  Make sure your child gets a note and a program after she is done practicing on Saturday.  NO PAJAMAS! NO BLANKETS!  Come ready to work hard.  Wear dance clothes, dance shoes, cheer shoes, Pom Poms (NO Costumes).  Dancers go to bed early so they are not tired.  No one can leave early! Your child must be on time to practice so we can be done on time!
Your child will receive a note at Saturday’s practice with more info about our Revue.  She will also recieve a copy of our program.  You need to look over the program and mark the dances your child is in.  Make sure your child is out in the hall 3 numbers before she goes on so we can get them lined up.  She cannot come out of the audience and perform.  Our younger classes are at the first of the program.  We will leave preschool, Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grade on the floor after our Big Show so they are ready for their ballet number.  After she is done performing her ballet number, you can then change her into her white neon colored clothes for the glow in the dark number (unless she is in other dances or cheer) and have her sit by you until we have everyone line up for the grande finale (glow in the dark number).  Your child can wear white/fluorescent neon colors like pink, green or orange.  Your child can wear glow in the dark necklaces.  Preschool Mom’s will need to take your child out in the hall and give her to Jackie (she has been helping us with the preschool class) she will line them up for the glow in the dark number. Every girl will need a glow in the dark necklace to through in the air at the end of the dark number.
We will spot light all Va-Del dancers and Cheer leaders and then everyone in Va-Dels will perform the Big Show Finale in the dark.  The more fluorescent colors and white she wears the more she will glow (no paint).  After we preform the finale - then the preschool mom’s need to get your child and have her sit by you for the slide show.  All the other dancers and cheer leaders will sit on the floor to watch the slide show.  It only last 10 minutes.  It is awesome! We have something to give all the dancers and cheer leaders after the slide show.
Karly will be putting together our slide show (DVD) she does a great job!  If you have great pictures of your child or great pictures of her performances (Parade, Halloween, any performances) We would like to use them in our slide show
dvd.  Please email them to: by this weekend. We also have someone from Logan videoing our Revue.  If your are interested in buying a DVD of our Revue and Slide show - you can prepay before our Revue.  The DVD will cost $20.00.  We will be selling the night of the Revue for $25.00.  We will have a table set up selling DVD’s the night of the Revue.

Every girl must be paid in full including May tuition before Saturday May 16th.  We love teaching your child but please keep in mind this is our job!  When your child is paid in full including May tuition she will recieve her pictures.
Towards the end of the Revue we will have all dancers and cheer leaders go back to the hall behind the gym to line up for the glow in the dark number.  We will practice that on Saturday.  We need every girl to stay until the end of the Revue to perform in the big show finale.  It is a lot of fun for the girls - slide show will follow the glow in the dark number.
If all the girls change clothes fast and come out into the hall - then we will be able to keep all our dances on time and our Revue should be over by 9:30.
You can save seats with blankets.  They do not want tape on the bleachers period - they will take your blanket off if you do.  You cannot come into the high school until school is out and the buses have left.  If you come before school is out they will charge you $100.00. If you put your blankets up before school is out the janitor will take them off.
This summer we will be offering Technique & Flexibility classes and Gymnastic classes.  All classes will be divided by ability.  The cost will be $60.00 for one class & $85.00 for two.  It will be a 8 week course.  All specialty classes will be picked this summer depending on technical level. Parade practice will start around July 20th.  We will have a sign up sheet Saturday and the night of the revue for summer classes, also for those who want to do a Solo or duet next year.  All classes will be posted on our blog.  Technique classes is where your daughter is going to get better.  All regular classes will resume in the fall.
Your child will need to take technique and do parade to be in any of our specialty classes. If your child is performing her solo on our revue you need to have her keep practicing it.
