The balance would then be due by November 15th.  Pictures of the chosen costumes will be in a book at the front desk the first part of December. We will begin doing measurements during class in the next couple weeks.

We are trying some additional fundraisers this year. On Oct 24th at 630, we will meet at the studio to pick up some cards with local coupons we can sell and we get to keep so much of the money. If you think you might be interested, please let me know. The guy who manages this program needs a rough estimate of how many people might be selling.

 

ADDITIONAL COMPETITION OPPORTUNITY!!

We just found out today that On Point National Dance Competition will be holding a competition in Becker on May 3-5. Because we have already committed to the other competition weekends, we will not be changing those weekends but would like to add this weekend. However, we will only register the groups that have 100% agreed to the additional costs. So, I need to know if you would like your group(Rising Starz, Starlights…), small group, solo, duet to compete at this 4th competition. All parents must agree before a group will be registered and if you tell me you do not want to do it, that will be kept confidential! The additional cost for competition fees if your groups decide to compete are:

Rising Starz $109

Starlights, Twilights, Comets, Performers $150

Solos $118, Duets $133

Small groups $55

These fees would be due Mar 1.
