I love spring flowers, they make me happy! I used to pick daffodils and tulips in my grandmas garden. The hyacinth's smelled so good. And the cherry blossoms are spectacular.
Spring is a fun time at Leaps and Bounds Dance as we prepare to show our parents all that our students have accomplished the past year. The dance music and the video for your child's dance is on the parent portal. Please help them practice their dance.
Some items to remember:
Costumes may seem like they are small, but we fit them to the size of your child, and the costume company matches their measurements. Dance costumes are supposed to fit snug, much like a bathing suit fits snug. Dance costumes are sized to be worn for the dance recital, we do not fit them to "grow into".
We have tights for sale for $8.00. The color for your Child's costume tights are in the recital packet. We also have tap shoes for sale for $15.00 and ballet slippers for $12.00. A digital picture package may be purchased for $30.00 before the recital. We will have the forms for the pictures at the front desk. We will not be taking any money for pictures on the day of the recital.
We are sending home costumes as we get them fitted and steamed. Please do not let your child wear their costume prior to the recital. We have made sure that the accessories that go with your child's costume are in the bag we send home. WE DO NOT HAVE EXTRA ACCESSORIES SO PLEASE MAKE SURE TO KEEP TRACK OF THEM.
Recital Packets are going home this week with the oldest child, so if you have more than one student in the school, check with your oldest child. The recital packet is also online, in the parent portal if you would prefer to have the electronic version. It will give you all the information you need for pictures, rehearsal.
We are starting year round dance on June 14, 2021 and the season will go until July 23, 2022. We are excited to be going year round, and we feel it will be a great asset to our dancers not to lose so much ground over the summer. You can sign up now, and classes are filling quickly so the sooner you sign your child up, the better chance you will have of getting the class you want.
We want to thank everyone for coming in and signing the waiver while you got your tickets. This was a COVID19 policy item from Valentine Theater. We really appreciate the parents understanding. We have the most awesome parents! Hopefully by next year's performances we will be able to go back to open seating.
Meghan Stewart and Lauren Johnson will be leaving us as teachers. They are both moving out of the area. We will miss them both, they have been such great teachers. Congratulations to Meghan on the birth of her baby boy! We have hired some awesome new teachers that will start on
June 14, 2021 that are excellent at the disciplines they teach. We think our students will really love them.
Thanks to our parents who were willing, on very short notice, to participate in performing at the American Fork Chamber of Commerce 75th anniversary. They were delightful, and did such a good job! We are so proud of our students.
COMING NEXT SEASON:
Performing group auditions will be held and we will put together opportunities for the Performing group to show their talents. Look for upcoming details in the months ahead.
