Happy New Year + Master Calendar Updates

Happy New Year!!   We are looking forward to seeing everyone next week.  Regular FootNotes Classes resume on Monday, January 7.  

Reminder:  All rehearsals are mandatory from this point forward.

We have some Master Calendar updates to share with you:

  • Wednesday, January 23 – Jon Carr will be in the studio to rehearse with the OVATION, PREMIER AND ELITE groups.    Exact schedule is “to be determined,” but it will be communicated as soon as it is available.
  • Thursday, January 24 – Cherisse Wakeham will be in the studio to rehearse with Elite.  This will affect the OVATION, PREMIER, & ELITE normal Thursday schedule.  Here is the plan:
    • No Ballet classes on this Thursday.
    • OVATION will start with Tap at 5:30pm and have Rehearsal at 6:30pm and will be done at 8:00pm.
    • PREMIER will start with Tap at 6:30pm and have Rehearsal at 7:30pm and be done at 9:00pm.
    • ELITE will work with Cherisse from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.   It is “to be determined” if the Small or Large Group will go first.

On January 26, 27, and 31, we will have full COSTUME/dress rehearsals at the Studio for both the dancer and mom to learn what will be required with all costumes.   If mom cannot be there at the group’s designated time(s), please find a mom to assist with your daughter. This ‘rehearsal’ is when costumes will be tried on, checked for alterations, changes needed, etc. The dancers will run through their dance in the costume to confirm that it is “stage ready.”  Please bring all costumes (that you have in hand), as well as accessories, tights and ALL shoes. The schedule is below.
