The Christmas Show, Surrey Dance Festival, and Breakout Notice home

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Frank Hurt Dance is about to get very busy! I would like to remind you about the last four events of semester one:

Monday, Dec. 13:12:30-2:30 Christmas Show Dress Rehearsal / Elementary
Thursday, Dec. 16: 5:45 – 9 Christmas Show

Monday, Jan. 10 8:45 – 12:00 Surrey Dance Festival at the Bell Centre
Saturday, Jan. 15 10:30 – 4pm Breakout Dance Competition at North Surrey Secondary

All missed classes must be made up before the Christmas Dress Rehearsal which means the final date to make up missed classes is Thursday, December 9 at 4:30pm. Any dance class student who does not make up their missed classes will not be dancing in the show. They must still come to the show to help me backstage. There is always a lot of work to do behind the scenes!

Monday, December 13 from 12 – 2:30 we have our Dress Rehearsal / Elementary Christmas Show. Please make sure your student comes to school prepared with their costumes and enough food and water. This is a mandatory rehearsal. Students who do not attend this dress rehearsal will not be in the show.

Thursday, December 16 is The Christmas Show. Students are to be here at 5:45pm. Please make sure they have all of their costumes and water. The doors will open for the audience at 6:45pm and the show will start promptly at 7:00pm. The show should run till about 8:15-8:30pm. This show is mandatory for dance students. If students missed the dress rehearsal they are still required to come to the dance show and help out.

Tickets are $5 each and will be for sale at lunch time and after school from Ms. J in the dance office starting Monday, December 6.

Please support our fundraisers at the dance show:
Flower boquets: $5 (Thanks to Mama J for donating the flowers)
50/50 Draw: $2 for three and $5 for an arm’s length.

When we return in January we have our last two events. The first is the Surrey Dance Festival at the Bell Centre on Monday, January 10. Please sign and have your student return the permission form. This field trip is for marks for all dance students. The performance is free so come and watch your student(s) dance! The performance will begin around 9:30am and finish around 11:30pm.

Our final event is Breakout Dance Competition. All classes and dance teams will be performing. This year our event will be held at North Surrey Secondary. Performers will have to arrive as early as 10:30am. I will post the registration schedule and other important information on the blog when I get it. The actual competition starts at 2pm and should run till about 4pm. If you would like to get your tickets for $10 please see Ms. J in the dance office otherwise they are $15 at the door. I always recommend purchasing tickets in advance to avoid disappointment on the day of the show. I look forward to seeing you all there!
