Parents’ Observation Week is from Monday, December 14th through Saturday, December 19th. Parents will be allowed to watch classes from our upstairs loft and may take pictures and videos from upstairs. This is just so parents can see their children’s progress from September and not intended to be a show of any kind. Please limit the number of people you bring and keep a very close eye on any extra children.
We will be closed for Winter Break from Monday, December 21, 2015 through January 2, 2016. Regular classes resume on Monday, January 4, 2016.
Some of our students had wonderful summer experiences at various summer intensive sessions. It is extremely rewarding for students to attend summer programs at different schools. They learn so much by meeting new students and teachers.
The recital was another resounding success. Thank you to all of our students, parents, backstage and front of the house helpers. We can’t do it without the help and cooperation of all involved.
