Let me start by thanking everyone for attending the costume rehearsal yesterday.
Thank you to the students for dancing hard and changing as quickly as possible.
Thank you to the parent reps who came and took notes and helped out.
Thank you to our seamstresses and Becky’s quick fixes!
Thank you to the other teachers for their help throughout the evening.
And a very heart felt thank you for your patience as our rehearsal did run late but I appreciated that everyone was able to get their needed time.
I have attached two separate notes that include most of the updates and notes that were taken yesterday. There were many changes made so please read through these lists again.
As festival tends to be very busy days and gets very hectic, I have asked that the parent reps that volunteered for each class, be in charge of checking each student before they come back stage. Please get your own child ready, following the instructions that have been sent out and then have your child in the group ready to come upstairs for the rep…work as a team. The kids will learn by parent/teacher example and if we are a well oiled machine and we feel confident, so will they and this hectic next few weeks will run smooth. Thank you parent reps for taking on this responsibility of checking each student, communicating with parents and bringing issues to me if its an issue that you can’t solve…I TRUST YOUR JUDGEMENT!!
Parent reps, please pick up your props, or assign another parent in the group to pick up props, on Thursday evening.
I would ask that all of you speak to the kiddles about being respectful of the parent reps and being on their best behavior listening to instructions on being where they are told as quick as possible.
THIS WEEK AT THE YATES AND STUDIO
ALL REGULAR CLASSES ARE RUNNING WHEN POSSIBLE…REHEARSAL IS STILL NEEDED ON MOST DANCES AFTER A WEEK BREAK…WE SAW THAT YESTERDAY
BE AT THE YATES 10 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR SHEDULED TIME READY
NO COSTUMES BUT YOUR HAIR SHOULD BE UP AND YOU SHOULD BE IN PROPER DANCE ATTIRE (I would ask that any costume pieces(like Toxic capes) that need rehearsal, bring them this week to the Yates.)
Yates Solo Times: Bring your cd’s and costumes if you wish to rehearse in them…a good plan!!
Please read through the attachments.
