Click here for NUTCRACKER EXTRAS NEEDED BEFORE DRESS REHEARSAL ON DECEMBER 13TH!

These items may or may not be available in your child's size in Totally Tutu's Dancewear Store, so please stop in as soon as possible just in case your child's size needs to be ordered.  The main purchases most families need to make are purchases for tights and nude leotards.  Nude leotards are intended to cover your child under her costume for appropriate coverage during the show and during any necessary backstage changes.  Thank you for your cooperation in making this an amazing performance for all involved!

-*****ATTENTION PARENTS***** The majority of ESDA classes participate in our annual recital.  Recital costumes must be ordered by October to be delivered in time for our Spring Show/Recital.  Costume prices will be emailed to you in the next few weeks for each class.  Please estimate $65-$100 per costume.  Costume money will be due OCT 1st.

 

-Nutcracker Announcement:  ESDA ballet students will be doing this year's Nutcracker Production!

Everything is currently posted under the Nutcracker tab, so please look there for all information concerning this production.  Beginning next week, teachers will have students trying on costumes for fittings for the parts designated for that class.  ONLY BALLET CLASSES (Primary and Levels 1-8 NOT Creative Movement) are affected by this.  We are hoping to have 100% participation as this is a great opportunity for your dancer(s).  If, however, you do not wish for your child to take part in the production, your child's teacher will need to be notified immediately.  Students will be learning and practicing these dances as a part of their ballet class instructional time. 

 

-Our Logowear is open and online!-Please visit http://teamstore.gtmsportswear.com/ESDA and checkout all of our logowear.  All orders will be shipped directly to the buyer. If the order is > $100.00 then shipping is free. If order is < $100.00 then it is a flat fee of $5.95

 

-Supervision for Children in the Studio-​We are kindly asking that if your child or children are in the studio with you while your other child is in a dance class, please come prepared for your child/children to have something quiet to do.  We cannot have running and shouting taking place in the waiting room.  ​It is very difficult for desk staff to have a phone conversation or even a person-to-person conversation at the desk while such things are taking place.  There is also the potential danger of a student running into someone or something.  We thank you for your help and support in this matter.

 

​-Please SLOW DOWN in the parking lot!  ​We understand that you are sometimes in a hurry arriving and/or leaving, however, the speed limit in the parking lot must be S-L-O-W.  There are little ones going in and coming out who are not as aware of traffic as adults and older student are.  We also are now needing to be even more cautious, because it is getting darker earlier and it is difficult for drivers to see.  Thank you for your help and support in this matter.

 

-PLEASE DO NOT ENTER A CLASSROOM WITHOUT ASKING DESK PERSONNEL FIRST!  Please understand that it is not that parents are not allowed in classrooms, however, everytime someone enters and exits the room, it is a disruption to the teacher as well as all of the other students.  We will need to be aware ahead of time and if the teacher gives permission, once in, we would ask that you please stay in.  Thank you!
