    Hi to all,
    All classes (at all 3 locations) are cancelled this evening due to the weather.  Parents Visitation is postponed until next Tuesday, April 1st. This was a hard one to decide on because most of the mail roads are in pretty good shape.  But I have heard from several parents that back roads are messy, and my parking lot is really bad.  So I feel the prudent thing to due is just cancel.  And I do so reluctantly!  In addition, we will not be having any spring break this year due to all our cancelled classes.

    Hi to all,

    Right now we are planning on having all classes as scheduled.  If that changes I will not be able to send out another email (verizon limits the number I can send each day) SO you should check this website, or facebook, or call the studio in Gordonsville (540-832-5220), if neccessary several times during the day.  I will leave a message on the answering machine if we change and cancel.

    I will be unavailable by phone today until this evening around 9pm. However, feel free to email me or call and leave a message at my home 540-832-3928.

    If you take class at Friendship Gym, please be aware there is work being done in the gym so excuse their mess.

    Also, would everyone please do their "Spring" dance so that Old Man Winter will retire!

    Thanks so much,
    --Pam Brushwood

    All BSD classes at all location have been canceled this evening, Wednesday, January 22, due to the road conditions.  Stay safe and have a warm rest of the week!

    Costume Depost

    The $35 fee paid along with registration for each costume was a deposit (stated both in the online and printed brochures). 

    Click here to reference. 

    Unfortunately, costume prices are increasing each year and a majority of our costumes cost more than $35.  Invoices for remaining costume balances went out Monday, January 20th (over a week late due to a number of students/parents not turning in their registration forms on time). Payment for your remaining costume balance is due immediately. 

    Please do not hesitate to contact Pam with any questions (540)832.3928.

    Tuesday, January 21, 2014

    Due to inclement weather all classes at all locations have been canceled for this evening.

    Important Note to all Pre-Pointe students/parents:  Due to the fact that all the sizes we needed for the Pre-Pointe costume orginally picked are NOT available we have had to make a change.  The costume we are now using MAY be less expensive and if so, I will be changing the amounts due on that costume. Orginially it was going to be $65 for ASM thru ALA sizes, $71 for AXL sizes and $75 for 2XL sizes.  If you have not already remitted payment, please wait until I find out the cost of the replacement costume before paying your bill.  If you have any questions, please let me know as soon as possible.

    Important Note to all Students/Parents:  If you are paying in cash, PLEASE do not put your payments into the black box at the Gordonsville studio, but give to your teacher AND get a receipt!  If you are at Health Nutz or Friendship Gym, get your teacher to give you a receipt.

    All students are to remain inside the building after classes are dismissed for their safety.  THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO WAIT OUTSIDE AT THE DOOR OR WANDER THROUGH THE PARKING LOT LOOKING FOR PARENTS.  If you are taking classes at the Gordonsville location, please do not park in front of the door so that students can more easily and safely be dropped off and picked up. 

    If you receive an invoice and you think it is incorrect, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME by email or phone.  Most of you know bookkeeping IS NOT MY TALENT, and I do make mistakes. 

    Thanks so much for allowing us to teach your children.  Have a safe and blessed week. 

    Fondly, Pam Brushwood and the staff at BSD

    Friday, January 10, 2014

    Classes will be held this evening ~ Friday, January 10, 2014. If you do not feel safe traveling the roads, please stay home! An absence due to inclement weather does not count against you!  If your child was not measured before the break and has not been measured this week, please contact Pam with their measurements - click here for how to measure. 

    Happy New Year!

    We look forward to starting the new semester on Monday, January 6th!  If you have not done so already, please return your registration forms and payment.
