February Notice

It’s hard to believe it’s February already!  This notice has a lot of important information!!Costumes have been coming in. If your dancer has brought home their costume, PLEASE take it out of its bag and hang it somewhere safe. We included accessories and tights. So keep it all together.  Check with your teacher about shoes needed for each dance.

Photo Days are as follows:

Dance Team photos will be in Studio 2 on March 24th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.

Recreational Dance photos will be in Studio 1 April 14th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.

(*Please note: Saturday classes on April 14th will be held in Studio 2.)

The Photo schedules will be emailed with the March notice.

We have a new photographer this season. His name is Ryan Smith specializing in dance photography and  his work is INCREDIBLE!! We are very excited! He offers many options at VERY reasonable prices. We have attached his price sheet to get an idea. Please check out his website RyanSmithVisuals.com.

SNOW DAYS

Just as a reminder. If Chester School is cancelled due to severe weather, daytime classes (before 3:30 p.m.) will automatically be cancelled.  However, this does NOT necessarily mean that evening dance classes are cancelled.  We will send you an e-mail message by 2:00 p.m. if we are going to cancel classes for the night.  If class is cancelled, your dancer is welcome to makeup any age appropriate class at any time. That is also applicable with any absence (ie: sickness,vacation, etc).

Congratulations to our Dancers of the Month!!

Hallie Feole, Olivia Sullivan, and Maddie Leger

These dancers have been chosen by their teachers for their

           great work, positive attitude and contagious passion for dance!!

Student choreographers are welcome to try out their piece for Ms Jennie anytime between now and April 18th. The dance must be complete before auditioning.
