Here are the schedule updates for the weekend.
REMINDER: There are ballet rehearsals for Spring ballet exams which include 1A, 2’s, 3’s, 5’s, 6’s, Intermediate and Advance students.
Miss Haley had a cancelation. Her Friday schedule has bumped around a bit.
On Sunday there is an extra room available for practice. I have written a few spots for group tap practices?any of the students who want to utilize the studio and practice tap exam work, I will leave a cd in the small room for them!! The studio starts getting really busy next rotation and class time is being used for choreography. This may be a really good time to practice as most students will be there for ballet. There will not be a teacher present but practice is all some of these students need. I urge you to encourage the students to go in with their group and go through the work.

Here is the private lesson/exam schedule for the next couple weeks.
There is an extra BALLET EXAM PRACTICE THIS SUNDAY FOR ALL BALLET EXAM STUDENTS Working for Spring exams.
Miss Renee: This Sunday is an extra rehearsal for all ballet exam
students wanting to work for a May/June exam. This rehearsal will be run by Miss Renee as she enters our students. This class will give us a better
idea as to where the students are at in knowing their work and if they are
on track for the spring exam. She’d also like to do an evaluation of the
Inter and Adv major students so we can make a decision on when our next set of major exams are. This is an important rehearsal!
Miss Vanessa has scheduled some extra times on week 3 for students she
missed over the Xmas break and or students she needs to see for an extra.
If you feel your child needs the extra time, please contact her. She has
also scheduled an extra lesson for the Can Can group in order to finish the
dance this rotation.
Miss Syd has scheduled some extra time for her solos and groups on Friday
Miss Haley is away Friday week 3 and has rescheduled to Sunday week 3.
Miss Heather will now take on extra solo/duo cleaning times. She will
schedule one day per rotation(perhaps more if needed). One time spot per
child…not per dance. You can decide how to use your 1/2 hour spot. If
you book this first rotation, please do not book next rotation. We want to
share the time fairly. It is always good for a second pair of eyes to see
dances and Miss Heather is well versed in ALL disciplines.
There were several students/parents who have emailed me saying they are
away during certain weeks. Until I have the schedule up and running it is
hard for me to make those adjustments. Please remind me if I have
forgotten those changes.
3 week schedule summary (Nov 1)
Parents, I ask on behalf of all the instructors:
Please give your private lesson time to the teachers and your child. Come in and video/watch quietly the last 5 minutes of the lesson if you wish too. Video is always a good idea. Sometimes parents can become too vocal with the students and teachers during these sessions but please remember that your child is already getting feedback from the teacher. A private lesson is a learning curve…we do not expect the students to do these steps perfectly the first go. We want to challenge them so that they have steps to improve on throughout the year! Sometime the pressure on the students from teacher/parent becomes overwhelming. Please do not add to the pressure by “helping” the teachers instruct! All of us want your child to excel!!
