Hi to all,
Do not pay a costume deposit on the following classes:
Thanks so much! Pam
The winter/spring 2014 schedule is now available! Use the menu above or to the right to download the brochure, schedule and registration/recital form (2 pages).
Thanks so much for coming to Parents’ Visitation. We hope you enjoy seeing what your dancer has been doing for the last twelve weeks. We ask that once instruction has begun that you try to refrain from talking as this is a distraction for the dancers as well as the teacher(s), and other parents watching. We also ask that you cut off the ringers to cell phones, and if you must take a call, please leave the dance room and take it in the lobby or another part of the studio. If you have younger children with you, and they become restless or distracting, we also ask that you go to the lobby or to another area of the premises. Thanks so much in advance for honoring these requests.
Hi to all,
GTM orders are in with the exception of a few back ordered items which are due in this week. So if you do not see you order don't panic!! :) They will be at the studio tonight, Laurie Baker is bringing them for Regina. If you indicated that the item was a gift on the order form it will be in a separate box in the attic area just like last year.
Don't forget Monday, November 18th through Saturday, November 23rd is Parent's Visitation week!
Just a reminder that there are no classes tonight. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
I just wanted to send out this email with a few reminders. Don't forget the balance is due on accounts this week unless you have already made arrangements with me for another payment plan.
Second, there will be no regular classes at the Gordonsville studio on Saturday, October 5th due to the Gordonsville Street Festival (this class will be made up after Thanksgiving). However, our performance groups will be rehearsing at schedule times given to those students participating AND we will be performing at the Town Office at 1:00 p.m.
The BSD dancewear orders are due NO LATER THAN October 12th...please make your payments to REGINA DELMAN and not me!
I have noticed several students in the parking lots after dark looking for their parents. Please remember to pick them up at the door, and remind them to stay inside until they see your car. Also, due to severe food allergies I am once again reminding parents and students to NOT EAT inside the Gordonsville studio.
Hope everyone has a wonderful end to the week and weekend.
New BSD apparel is here! The last day to order is Saturday, October 12th. Click here for more information.
Our first studio fundraiser of the year is here! Click here for more information!
Just a reminder that classes begin this Tuesday, Sept. 3rd at all three locations!
Hi to everyone,
Our Fall semester is just about to start, and I have received many of your forms--thanks so much--however, if you did not use the NEW updated registration form with the new releases you will need to either get a copy from me, or click here. If you are unsure about which form you used, please email me and I will let you know if you need to fill out another one or not. (If you downloaded your form after August 5th you probably used the correct form). Your teachers will have the corrected copy at the first class to fill out...Or you can print out the form attached to this email or download it here. The reason we have a new form is that we will be using a video camera system with audio recording at the studio in Gordonsville, and I need the form signed that tells me you are aware of it giving consent/approval. I am doing this because we have had a two-adult rule at the studio for several years. But in many of our classes we do not have another adult present. This assures my parents and students that their safety is important, and it keeps my teachers safe, as well.
Some of you have reserved a space for your dancer(s) in classes but still need to get your forms to me as soon as you can. (Don't forget to use the NEW updated registration form - click here). And for those of you who have not registered or called me to hold your dancer's place(s) in classes, it is not too late for some of our classes. So if you haven't signed up, give me a call to see what classes still have spaces available.
If you did not notice this on the registration brochure, any student in Level III classes or above are required to take BOTH semesters if they want to take part in the spring dance recital. If you have any concerns or questions about this new policy, do not hesitate to contact me. Starting in the Fall of 2014 ALL classes LEVEL I and up will have the same requirement. The reason for this change in policy is that we have too many students joining second semester and missing important technique taught first semester.
I am using Curtain Call for Class for dance wear and shoes again. Click here for a flyer. I have shoe sizing kits for some of the dance shoes at the studio and will be glad to meet you there for a shoe fitting. Please call me to set up a time to meet.
Click here for a discount coupon for Disco Sports in Richmond if you would rather purchase your dancewear and shoes there.
Lastly, I am making dance totes for the dancers to carry their dance shoes and other accessories. I have several at the studio in Gordonsville already made, and/or can make ones for you with your dancer's name embroidered on it. If you can't get into the studio in Gordonsville. Click here for a sample photo. If I have a huge number of orders, however, it may take me sometime to get your tote to you. We will also have a few other accessories available at the studio in Gordonsville for sale.
Looking forward to a great 2013-14 season of dance, and thank you for registering yourself or your children in our program.
Staying on my toes,
Hi to all,
Just a reminder that I begin taking NEW students the morning of August 1st. So if you have not already sent in your registration forms, or emailed/called me as to where you want you or your child place in classes, it is important that you do so before then OR you risk not getting the classes of your choice.
ALSO, if you have already called/emailed me with your class choices, please send me your registration forms and payment as soon as possible. If you need to post-date your check, just circle the date on the check in red, and I will be happy to hold them until the date posted. I am using a new program for registration which is requiring that I input ALL of your information again. SO I really need those forms. Our web site www.brushwoodsschoolofdance.
If you are a performance company member, please check the web site for your starting rehearsal dates.
And if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am on vacation until Saturday, and you can call me at my home then (540-832-3928). Otherwise you can send an email to me, and I should be able to respond.
