Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are as excited as we are to get back into dance! Classes start up this Saturday January 5th. Please remember to bring back all Christmas recital costumes your next class to avoid a full costume charge.
Please take a few moments to have a peek at upcoming important dates for the remainder of the year. These can be found in your studio policies you received upon registering or on our website on the Info, Rules & Regulations page.
Bring a Friend to Dance
Dancers are welcome to bring a friend to dance with them the week of January 12th – January 17th (recreational classes only). There is no charge for your friend to attend as many classes as they like that week with you.
Please help us keep our lobby and dance rooms clutter free by reminding your dancer to place their coats, hats, mitts, dance bags in the changerooms, or the coat rack in the hallway. We have lots of cubbies and lockers for dancers to use.
It is the half-year point where some dancers have grown out of their shoes. Looking to buy or sell used dance shoes? There is an EDS NEWS corkboard in the lobby that can be used to post used dance shoes for sale. Please be sure to post the type of the shoe (jazz, tap, ballet) the brand, the colour, the size and the price with your contact name and email/number. Please contact and pay the seller directly, not EDS. (All posts will be removed at the end of the month). Please do not bring in any shoes to be left at the studio as they will be donated.
Come out and support our competitive team as they head into their competitive season. The competitive showcase is being held at the Humanities Theatre this year. The show is Saturday February 23rd at 6pm. Tickets can be purchased directly through the Humanities Theatre Box Office as of Tuesday January 8th, or through the studio (visit the Registration page for order forms).
