The Christmas shows have been scheduled! We have divided most classes into four groups. Each group will perform at two nursing homes. The nursing homes, dates, and times are listed on the next page according to each group.
PARENTS ATTENTION PLEASE: The nursing homes are not equipped for mass visitation and their parking and residential areas do not always lend themselves to large groups. Please be cognizant that when attending, we need to limit the possibility of conflicting with the space limitations that the homes are under. Please limit the number of people that attend with you. Also, please remember that we perform at these nursing homes for the residents. While we hope you get to see your child dance, we must stress that all families of the dancers stay behind the residents. We are told every year that our Christmas shows are the highlight of so many of the residents’ year, and we hope to keep it that way. In the Christmas spirit, please help us make this an enjoyable experience for the residents. You may want to encourage grandparents to skip these shows, and wait to see the recital in June. Also, the nursing homes are limited on parking areas. Please do not park in spots that are not marked as parking spots, and please do not double park causing issues for others who are parked.
TIME: Please don’t arrive too early. The nursing homes were not designed to accommodate a large group of people. We will be performing in the dining room, and sometimes have to wait until the rooms are cleared from dinner before we can enter. Therefore there won’t be much room to wait. Please arrive no more than 15 minutes before the show is to start, and line up in the hallway according to class (posted on the nursing home wall). Please note that all of the evening shows begin at 7:00. They will last 30-40 minutes.
SLIPPERY FLOORS: The floors are always slippery for those classes wearing tap shoes. Please put a small amount of masking or duck tape on the bottom of each tap shoe.
COSTUMES: Please see your teacher for costume details.
DIRECTIONS: Directions to the nursing homes are on the attached page.
CLASSES: There will be NO classes the week of the Christmas shows.
The Christmas shows count as classes, and December tuition is regular price.
