First Notice Home: Sept. 23, 2014

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 our show at Frank Hurt Theatre. This performance is 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 one evening show. It is a formal performance with full costumes and lighting. The dress rehearsal and elementary show will be held on December 15 from 12:30-2:30pm and the show will be on December 18 at 7pm.
There are two other dance events that the students will be participating in this semester. The first one is the Surrey Dance Festival at the Bell centre and the second one is Outbreak Dance Competition. Both of these events are in January and I will send home notices and update the blog with more information as I receive it.
