AFTER SCHOOL DANCE PROGRAM

Dear Parents,

Now is the time to enroll your child into the After School Dance Program. Along with having a whole lot of fun there are so many benefits a student receives from participating in the performing arts. I have taught here at St. Cyprian for many years and would love to have your child join us in class this year. Class fees are $9 per class. If a student takes more than one class a week or if you have two or more children taking classes then you get the discount rate of $8 per class.

The following classes will be offered:

  • Tues: Ballet I gr. TK-­‐2 3:00 – 4:00
  • Tues: Ballet I & II gr. 3-­‐8 4:00-­‐5:00 (if Ballet II dancers are not in EDC they may wait with me in small hall doing homework or reading unIl their class Ime)
  • Thurs: Tap I gr. TK-­‐2 3:00-­‐4:00
  • Thurs: Tap I & II gr. 3-­‐8 4:00-­‐5:00 (if dancers are not in EDC they may wait with me in small hall doing homework or reading unIl their class Ime)

  • Fri: Jazz II 1:45-­‐2:30 ( must have permission of teacher) (if dancers are not in EDC they may wait with me in small hall doing homework or reading unIl their class Ime)

***Due to sports conflicts on Thursdays, this year I have switched Tap to Thurs. and Jazz to Fri. ***

If your child is enrolled in day care he/she is to report to day care first and then go to the small hall for class.  If your child is not enrolled in day care he/she is to go straight to the small hall after school for dance class. I will always be at school by 3:00 to help direct grades K-2 where to go. When class is over I will stay with the students who are being picked up by their parents. If for any reason a dancer is not picked up after class he/she will be sent to day care and all their fees will be applicable.

DANCE ATTIRE

Ballet Class           All dancers need pink ballet slippers and must wear any color leotard and tights

Jazz Classes          All dancers need black jazz shoes. Any color jazz pants, exercise pants or stretch shorts may be worn with a leotard or T-shirt.

Tap Classes           All dancers need black tap shoes. Tights and leotards may be worn or any color jazz pants, exercise pants or stretch shorts may be worn with a leotard or T-shirt.  Students in Tap II should wear the oxford style tap shoes. These are the jazz/tap shoe that laces up like regular shoes.

Boys Attire:          Boys will need black jazz, ballet or tap shoes depending on their choice of class. Any type of exercise clothes will be fine. Definitely something they can stretch in.

DANCE SUPPLY STORES: Payless, Diva Dancewear, Discount Dance Supply, discountdancesupply.com

I highly discourage parents from staying and watching class. It is for your child’s benefit because students always do better in class when they are not being watched. They are more at ease when a mistake is made without an audience and they also concentrate more on their class work instead of those watching. If you truly would like or feel the need to watch a class I only ask that you make arrangements with me ahead of time so I can let the students know in advance that we will be having visitors in class. This way the students are not caught off guard with an audience.

Yellow envelopes will be sent home the end of each month with class fees for the next month. Class fees are due the 1st Friday of each month Please make checks payable to EDC and write Dance on the memo line Please fill out the registration form and return it to school along with the fees for the month of October.

My policy for giving credit for missed classes is as follows: credit will be given for a missed class if a student is absent from school the day of his/her dance class or if there is a conflict with another school activity such as sports event or musical practice being held at the same time. There are school activities in which a dancer can attend class before or after their other activity so credit will only be given if the activity is being held at the same time as dance class. I am looking forward to this new school year and hope to see your child in dance class this Oct.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at (562) 428-6166.

Sincerely, Celia McVey
