Congratulations Dance Team Notice

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Congratulations, your son or daughter is on the dance team. This is a great opportunity for them to learn and develop as a young artist. Frank Hurt has three dance teams this year and they are all student run, choreographed, and danced. This is amazing as some teams that we compete against have professional choreographers but Frank Hurt consistently does well in competitions. Our program is strong because our dancers are dedicated and motivated to do well. This year promises to be our most exciting yet. I have included below a list of dance events that I know of so far. Please check the blog regularly for updates, videos, and photos: If you need to contact me please e-mail:

Please read through your student’s Dance Team Member Contract with them, sign it, and have them return to Ms. J with teams fees.

Happy Dancing,
Paula Johnson

Please see blog for studio schedule and important dates.

The second is on Monday, November 22, 2010 we have a field trip to Bikrams Yoga Delta. We will be taking taxis and my vehicle. We will be leaving the school at 11:30am and returning at 2:15pm. The cost is $15/student and all dance students are invited. This field trip is on a first come first serve basis – the first18 students who have their forms signed and their money in get to come on the trip. What a great way to warm-up and get flexy in November!

Bikrams Yoga is the hot yoga. It is awesome for increasing strength and flexibility. It is comprised of two breathing exercises and twenty-six postures. It is important not to eat two hours before the class. Our class will be starting at 12pm so …

First Notice Home for Parents and Guardians

Dear Parents/ Guardians

Dance is a performance art so performing is a large part of a dance student’s education. Dance students are marked on their preparation as well as their skills demonstrated at these performances and at the dress rehearsal. Students will have the opportunity to perform informally in front of their peers and formally at assemblies, festivals and competitions. Notices of reminder and permission forms will be sent home when these events come closer.
The following performance and rehearsal dates are for shows at Frank Hurt Theatre. These performances are integral to the dance program. Please make note of these dates and help ensure that your child is in attendance. If there are any conflicts please inform your child’s teacher immediately.

This semester the dance department will be presenting two sets of evening shows. Our first show will be a workshop demonstration. This is a low-key performance on October 28 at 7pm and it is meant to be viewed by family members o…
