Hi, friends!

As week one comes to a close, we want to thank you all for making Studio J your dance home this season!   It's been so much fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones this week...and we appreciate everyone working together to help things go smoothly as we get settled in our temporary location.  We are also excited about the progress being made on our new building - and like you, we are looking forward to our final move!  Until then, here's what you need to know...

Sept 20 - All September charges should be paid in full.  If you are not on auto pay, be sure to call or stop in today with your payment.  Payments can also be made online - just login to your account using your email and password and set up your payment using a bank/credit card.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - Now that the season has officially begun, all withdrawals must be processed according to policy by filling out a drop form with the front office.  Non-attendance is NOT considered a drop and charges will continue to accrue.  Drops must be processed before midnight on the 1st of the month to avoid being charged for the next month.  Performance/Recital fees are non refundable.

Sept 23 - Starting Monday, all classes will be running full out and dancers are expected to be in their proper dance attire.  (Dress code attached.)  Please let us know if you are unable to find any of the required items and we will give you some suggestions and alternatives until we are able to sell merchandise in the new building.  *IMPORTANT - please be sure to mark all of your dancer's shoes with their full name and send them with a dance bag to help keep track of their belongings.  Dance shoes should NEVER be worn outside, including sneakers for Hip Hop!

Any combo classes (Elementary and younger) which include Tap will start class in their tap shoes first.  Ballet/Jazz combos will start in ballet shoes first.

Parents, in order to help our young dancers transition into class independently, we ask that you DO NOT come in to the dance rooms unless requested by the instructor.   Viewing in our temporary location is limited, however, will be available in the new location.  THANK YOU!!!

Oct 1 - Tuition/Recital Fees due.  If necessary, please be sure to update your card info before the 5th if you are on autopay by calling the office or accessing your account online.

Oct 16-21 Fall Break - Studio J closed, NO classes.

Oct 31 - Halloween - Studio J closed, NO classes.

*With regard to scheduled days off - they will vary from month to month, but all classes will have had the same number of days by the end of the season, with the exception of weather cancellations.  Tuition does not change from month to month as it is an installment plan based on the full year divided by nine months for your convenience.

Tentative Performance Dates (may be subject to change, but please save these dates!!!)

Christmas Celebration Program - TBA soon!

Spring Recitals - May 26-29 and May 31

Thank you again for an awesome first week - have a great weekend!
