**Emailed 11/8/19

3 – Mark your calendar for the recital on Dec 14th – ALL students will participate (Inform me now if you can’t make it)

4 – GET SHOES (see below)


Mark Your Calendars!


Recital will be held on Saturday December 14th at 6 p.m. (performers must be there by 5:30 in FULL COSTUME).  *Please make sure they are fed and have used the potty before arrival. 
*There will not be a rehearsal this year, teachers will practice walking them on and off the floor at the studio 

Location: Canaan Land Ranch 400 County Road 3821 San Antonio, Texas 78253 (It’s about a 15-20 minute drive to the West of us)

**Please let me know now if you WILL NOT be there**

For those performing, Costumes are being ordered soon and will be distributed early December.  (Account must be paid in full to receive costume)

We only have 5 more practices until recital, so PLEASE, NO ABSENCES

*Although you are welcome to stay and watch during class, we ask that you PLEASE keep quiet and reduce distractions.  Most parents just drop off and return at class end and we have found that they typically do better in this scenerio – however, we know that the younger age groups may still need you – so whatever is best for your child.  Tiny Tots is only 30 minutes long, so we understand that it makes sense to stay with them.


Performers will sit to the side of the performance floor in groups by class with their teachers. (a parent may sit with small children there if needed during the show).

*There will be a pop-up changing room nearby for those that are in more than once class and require costume changes. Parents may help their child if needed as there may only be 3 minutes to change before their next number.

Recital schedule will be as follows: (This order may change – we are trying to accommodate those in multiple classes that have costume changes)

  1. Acting and Improv (Thurs 4:00 pm class)
  2. Jr Jazz & Ballet (Thurs 5:00 pm class)
  3. Jr Tumble (Thurs 6:00 pm class)
  4. Tiny Tots (wed 5:30 pm class)
  5. Soundsations (Tues 4:30 pm class)

You may take pictures and video record the recital.  Our studio photographer, Meagan Banner will take action photo’s during the performances and she will give us digital access to the file so you can download what you want.  We will also have someone video recording each performance. (Formal Class pictures will be taken sometime in the spring)

Yay!  Some of our costumes are in!  (The only class still missing is the Tuesday 3-5 year olds at 10 a.m. – I will notify you when they arrive).

1.  Parents must “SIGN OFF” that you received your costume, so come inside to get them this week!  Costumes will not be handed off to the student without you!  If you have not yet paid for your costume, please contact me to make arrangements before your costume is released.

2.  Please go home and try them on carefully! (There are no returns and you are responsible to repair damages to your costume). **Please don’t allow your child to wear them until performance time to prevent them from getting damaged.

Most should fit just right, but let me know if you feel an alteration is needed.

*Cheer uniforms will not be going home with you this week, you will try them on at the studio so we can determine alterations and then we will take them back so we can get the team logo put on!

3.  Group Pictures will be taken on June 15th in full costume at Canaan Land Ranch before the Recital Starts (between 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.). We will notify you of your group’s scheduled arrival time before hand. The recital will start at 6:30 p.m.

4.  Our “Fun Day” Fundraiser is scheduled for May 18th.  It will be held at the Weston Oaks Park from 10 am to 2 pm and we will have fun activities for the kids to do that day.  We will invite all the neighboring communities to join in the fun, and we may even have the students perform (I’ll chit chat with the teachers about that).  We will charge a small admission to participate (your kids are free), and will do a bake sale.  Any funds collected will be divided up and applied toward the recital fee as a whole.  If you have anything you can donate for raffle prizes, please bring it to the studio.  I will make up fliers that you can pass out to friends soon.
We will need a lot of Canopies, tables, chairs, activities (ideas), baked goods for the bake sale, raffle prizes and volunteers to help with it all!  Please let me know if you can help, lend or donate anything!
