Showcase of the Starz 2018 – “A Sea of Starz”
June 2-3rd, 2018 – William Chrisman H.S. (In Independence)
Details regarding ACT (1 or 2) designation will be posted in January.
We require all students to participate in the Showcase performances.
If you cannot participate, please notify us immediately. Thank you for your support & cooperation!
★ We have some wonderful ideas for this year’s show, and are anxious to get started! Each dance class will perform 1 routine for the Showcase. We will announce our theme and costume decisions for each class during December watch week.
★ Tumbling classes will have an OPTIONAL routine for Showcase this year. If your child is interested in participating in the Showcase tumbling routine, please sign up at the front desk no later than 3/19/17. A group leotard will be ordered for this routine, so a small deposit will be due. Additional information about practice times and other details will be available soon.
★ We will begin working on dance routines starting in January. Our teachers plan their choreography based on the students who are enrolled at that time. When a student drops out or changes classes it makes it very difficult for the remaining students to adapt to the changes in choreography.
★ Showcase 2018 Costumes will be approximately $65.00 each and include one pair of tights. A $35.00 costume deposit will be due no later than December 7th, 2017. Costume deposits are non-refundable.
SEE THE DISPLAY OUTSIDE STUDIO C FOR PICTURES AND DETAILS.
★ ATTENTION AUTOMATIC WITHDRAWAL CUSTOMERS: Save your time and checks! If you would like your costume payments automatically deducted from your accounts on the due dates, just stop at the desk by Dec. 6th and sign up for it. We will NOT automatically deduct them unless you specifically sign up for this withdrawal at our front desk.
Snow Day’s & Class Cancellation Policies
★ Starz follows the Oak Grove School District with regards to MOST MAJOR holiday closings and often for INCLEMENT WEATHER dates. We will be using email, social media, and our TEXT MESSAGE system for announcements regarding weather closings this season. If you’ve not registered for the texts, please do so today. It’s simple, easily deleted if you change your mind, and we will not abuse this system by sending frequent or unnecessary announcements. To join, text this message: @recprogrm to this number: 81010
Shoe & Other
★ Need a babysitter?? Our assistant teachers make wonderful caretakers! If you are interested, please let us know at the front desk and we’ll help you find a perfect match.
★ Our next two shoe & dance bag orders will be placed on December 8th and January 15th.
★ Check the lost and found bucket this month. Anything remaining in it after Dec. 15th will be taken to charity.
