Notice: Works in Progress Show

Dear parents and guardians,

Please be aware of the upcoming events: 

Monday, November 2, 2015: 3-4pm – Works in Progress Dress Rehearsal
  • All dance classes and teams will be rehearsing.
  • Dress rehearsal is mandatory and for marks for dance classes.
  • Dancers must come prepared to school with their costumes.
  • Dancers who do not attend the dress rehearsal will not be in the show but must attend and help backstage for marks.
  • Students in dance classes who do not make up their missed classes before dress rehearsal (Monday, November 2@12:05pm) will not be in the show but must attend to help backstage for marks.

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 3 – 4:30pm – Works in Progress Show
  • All dance classes and teams will be performing.
  • Dance class students will be marked on their performances.
  • This show is for family and friends that would like to see what we have been working on in class thus far.
  • This is a practice show to get us used to changing quickly, entering and exiting the stage, and performing in front on an audience. 
  • Doors open for the audience at 3:15 and the show starts at 3:30. 
  • Donations will be accepted at the door – to go towards costumes and competitions.
  • There may be Krispy Kreme dougnuts for sale for $1 (if we have any left over from lunch sales) This is a fundraiser that we will be doing for 7 weeks to raise money for costumes and field trips.

Thursday, November  5, 2015: 9:15 – 4pm – Field Trip to Harbour Dance and Ballet BC
·       All dance classes and teams were invited to come on this field trip. If your student is coming with us please send them with a lunch or money to purchase a lunch as well as water and dance clothes.

With grade 9 Take your Kids to Work Day on Wednesday, this is a very exciting and full week. I hope to meet some of you at the Works in Progress show. This is the first time we are having this show right after school and I would be interested to hear your feedback. In previous years this show was in the evenings and only open to family. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a lot of turn out for these shows which was a little disappointing to the performers. It is more difficult to perform for an empty house than it is a full one packed with energy. So, I thought we would try right after school and open these practice shows up to friends at school to give our dancers more of a feel of what it will be like with a full audience.

See you all soon and thank-you in advance for your support of Frank Hurt Dance,

Field Trip: November 5, 2015 Harbour Dance and Ballet BC

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is field trip time! I am taking 30 students to Harbour Dance Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Thursday, November 5, 2015. The cost to students is $20. This includes: a dance class, a dance performance, and transportation.

This is an awesome opportunity for students to take a class from a new teacher and at a new studio. Harbour is a great place to take drop – in classes of all levels and for all ages. And, how often do you get to see a ballet performance? For some of our students, I am certain it will be their first time. Ballet BC student performances are a great way to introduce younger dancers to the theatre. They are a little bit shorter and sometimes the students get to ask the dancers questions at the end. 


Our Itinerary:  *This itinerary was updated October 29th. 

9:00 am                       Leave Frank Hurt Secondary (School Bus) 
9:15 am                       Pick up at Queen Elizabeth Secondary
