Monday-Friday, April 14th through Aptil 18th is Lexington School District One’s scheduled spring break.  The dance studio will be closed this week as well. Classes and school will resume the Monday after Easter April 21st.

Dance Congratulations and Business Ads:  It’s that time of year again.  If you’re interested in sending a special Congratulations ad to your dancer or advertising a business in our recital program, it’s time to start designing your ad, or writing your words of congratulations.  The recital program is a great opportunity to advertise your personal business or your place of employment and increase your business.  Look for pricing and ordering information to be sent home with your dancer soon.  Orders must be received by Friday May 2nd.

Thursday and Friday, June 5th and 6th:  RECITAL!  6:45pm Batesburg Leesville Fine Arts Center
Although we would love for everyone to be able to see every dance number, this year we’re splitting our show into two performances.  The purpose of this is two-fold. One- it allows for an earlier evening for parents who work and students who have daycare.  Two- we can make arrangements for our students that are going out of town on Friday to still perform with their class and not have things missing from the choreography.  We are still finalizing the show order and which numbers will perform on each day.

Looking forward to a great dance week.-K
