Cold Weather Reminder
Dancers – please make sure you are wearing long pants, coats and boots when you leave the studio! I know you are often hot and sweaty when you finish dancing but it is winter now and you need to dress warmly to stay healthy and to avoid your muscles from stiffening up and losing flexibility!
Boots and Shoes
Dancers AND Parents – Please make sure you remove your shoes and boots before stepping off the carpet in the studio foyer. Wet floors and dancers in bare feet are not a good combination.
Lost and Found
Please check the lost and found for any items your dancer may be missing. We will need to empty the bin before Christmas holidays.
Classes will not run over the holidays. Christmas holidays start on December 19th and go until January 5th. Meaning the last day of classes will be Monday December 18th and classes will resume on Saturday January 6th.
Santa Clause Parade
The parade is on Saturday December 2nd!
A reminder that there is a rehearsal for all participating recreational dancers who are dancing the entire route (already signed up) December 1st 6:30-7:15pm.
The day of the parade – Please meet us at the parade start (ask a guide wearing a crossing guard vest where Encore Dance Studio is) at 9:30am on Saturday December 2nd.
What to wear? Dancers sitting on the float need hats, warms mitts, scarves, winter coats and snow pants (it gets cold!). I would also suggest a blanket or sleeping bag to cover them. Dancers who are dancing the route are to wear running shoes with thick socks. No boots (dancers cannot dance in winter boots). Recreational Dancers are to wear black only. (EDS jackets if you have them with layers under). Company dancers are to wear their neon hoodies (again, layers under please) with black pants. All dancers must wear mitts (any colour). All dancers are to wear a Santa hat. If your dancer does not have one we will be providing some. Please pick up your child immediately following the parade at the parade end (Elmira Legion).

Christmas Recital Costumes
Please be sure to bring back all pieces of the costume you rented for the Christmas recital this week. Please do not wash anything as we do that before putting them away for next year’s show.
