ATTENTION ALL NUTCRACKER DANCERS: The board has cancelled all after school activities which means we're UNABLE to practice tonight. The show will continue this weekend as long as all roads are clear which they should be. All dancers should arrive at normal time unless I personally contact you. Thank you for your cooperation. Ms. Jessica

Latest NEWS:

 

 

-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.

 

​-Dance Workshop Opportunity- ​Dylan Pearce' "the PROCESS". 2/2/18-2/4/18 in Washington, DC. More details to come. Please see board for interest flyer and sign up.

 

​-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 effected 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.  

 

​-LOGOWEAR ONLINE STORE NOW OPEN-We have "opened" our online store for ESDA Logowear apparel!!  Great ideas for Christmas and Birthday gifts (order by Nov 1st for Christmas delivery)!!  The link to the store is : http://teamstore.gtmsportswear.com/ESDA

 

-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!

 

​-Monday Beg. Modern (KH):  Mrs. Kerianne requires Foot Undeez Nude/no rhinestones for this class.  These will be used for class as well as recital.

 

-Dress Code Footwear Requirement for Beg. Modern (RW) & Int. Contemporary (RW):  Mrs. Rebecca is requiring that dance students wear Lyrical shoes (pirouette shoes) for these classes.  These shoes are sold in Totally Tutu's for your convenience.

-***2018 Annual Recital (All classes participate)***- Our 14th annual recital will be held at the Cambridge South Dorchester High School. All classes participate by performing choreography taught within class. Our mandatory dress rehearsal will be held on Friday, May 18th starting at 4:00pm and our performances will be held on Saturday, May 19th @ 6PM and Sunday, May 20th @ 3PM.  Students should have purchased recital costumes by October 1st. We will be sending out the costume information for each class that is participating in the recital very soon.  Please order by the deadline otherwise you are risking not having your child in his/her recital pictures or the recital itself.  Go to www.costumemanager.com to order them ASAP.
