June 2019 Newsletter Wrap Up!

Can you believe recital is here already!!  Here are a few things to keep in mind to help you make it through the next two weeks.

WEBSITE:   Come visit our website here at www.dancextremenb.com for all the latest dance information, schedules, and updates!

CONTACT INFORMATION:  Before we wrap up for the year, please make sure your contact information is up-to-date so that we can get in touch with you with the latest Dance Xtreme News and Information!

JUNE RE-REGISTRATION SPECIAL: Re-register for dance in June for only a $10 registration fee, cash only.   I will pass along the savings and take registrations from friends or family at the same time.  Forms are available at the desk.  Pricing programs available, bundling packages for the multi class dancer and family packages for those with siblings!!  

AWARDS Please check the list of those students who have earned our perfect attendance award and the students that will be receiving our 5, 10 or 15 year dance awards.  It would assist us if you would double check with the desk if you feel your child should be getting a perfect attendance award or a 5, 10 or 15 year dance award.  If you have a question or if you feel there has been an error made, please see Miss Erin or speak with the desk immediately.  Corrections need to be made in a timely fashion.

RECITAL T-SHIRT: HAVE ARRIVED!  The 2019 Recital T-Shirt ON SALE NOW, ONLY $20.00.  They are available in all sizes, from youth to adult.  There is a limited supply so make sure to get yours before they are all sold out!

RECITAL MAKE-UP Use dark Brown eye shadow and a DARK RED/WINE lipstick and blush (not pink!!). Please heavily apply WINGED EYELINER AND MASCARA to accentuate the eyes.  You may use any make-up so long as it is in the correct recital colors.  

YOFI recital make-up is available to purchase at the desk along with a recital glitter spray.  

RECITAL EARRINGS:  I am allowing the use of competition stud earrings to be worn by all students in the recital.  They are available now at the desk.  Quantities are limited so purchase your pair while supplies last.  See the desk to take a look at these beautiful stage earrings for all ages.  Earrings are priced at only $10.00. 

RECITAL TICKETS Recital tickets are available for $20 (cash only) until our last day at the studio.  Once we are at the New Bedford High, tickets are $22 each (cash only).  Seating is limited and I recommend that if you are going to purchase tickets for Sunday general admission, do so in advance.  There are long lines at the ticket booth on performance dates.  Any students or parents wishing to enter the auditorium must purchase a ticket.  Tickets are not transferrable and all ticket sales are final.

PICTURE PICK-UP DAY…Rehearsal Day:  Thursday, June 27, 2019

Parents and students may view the finished dance photos in the lobby of New Bedford High School on Thursday, June 27 between 5 pm and 9 pm during our regular rehearsal.  I request that all parents at least take a look at these priceless memories.   I want to express to all parents again that there is no charge for this service.  Please, just take a few moments of your time at rehearsal to review your child’s photos.  You are never obligated to purchase any pictures.   Cash, checks, and all major credit cards accepted.  

PARENT VIEWING AREA: As a courtesy and for the convenience of our parents, I will make a parents’ standing room only viewing area available in the rear of the auditorium.  This area is for only those parents with wristbands so they may view their child while they are dancing on stage.  Parents must leave this area immediately after their child finishes dancing to allow room for the other parents.  Due to the limited space and in consideration of the other parents, there will only be ONE wristband issued per family. 

VIDEO: Performance Video will be recording our recital on Sunday, June 30 and have DVD’s for $30.00, Blue Ray for $40, are available to purchase.  Orders must be prepaid (cash or check only!) and forms are available at the desk.

SUMMER DROP IN CLASSES:  Bored this summer??  Missing dance??  Starting on July 15 and continuing through August 23, Dance Xtreme will be offering a variety of summer drop in classes!  So come and check us out!  The class schedule is posted on our new website!  Classes are only $10 each and EVERYONE is invited to attend!  So bring a friend or two!  

PARADE All Dance Xtreme students are invited to join the competition team in the Madeira Feast Parade to be held on Sunday, August 4, 2019.  Parade starts at Brooklawn Park and ends at the Madeira Feast Grounds.  We will have a 1:00 check in time at the corner of Acushnet Avenue and Brooklawn Avenue at Brooklawn Park.  The parade will be starting at approximately 2:00 pm.  The younger students will be riding on the Dance Xtreme float.  Students attending MUST be dressed in one of the costumes from our recital.  Sign up at the desk asap.   

If you have any questions regarding recital, costume, hair, make-up, shoes, etc.; please speak with me in the next two weeks.  It is impossible for me to stop and speak with any parent during our rehearsals or performances. Please see me between classes or call the studio and leave me a message.  I will get back to you as soon as possible.  

The staff and I would like to say “Thank You” for a great year and we look forward to your return here at Dance Xtreme…

The “new” dance season starts on September 3, 2019! See you here at Dance Xtreme…

Love, Miss Erin xo
