2.  KIDS CHRISTMAS PARTY!!

December 9th marks the last day of Term 1!!  Melissa always loves to make this day special for her young dancers!  We are ending Term 1 with a wonderful Christmas party for all our Saturday dancers.  Parents, bring your cameras as this promises to be a fun-filled hour!  During this special day, we have an altered schedule as we amalgamate some classes together to make it that much more exciting!

 See details below:

Date:  Saturday, December 9th

Where: MKDA Studio A

Attire:  All dancers arrive with their regular dance apparel.  Feel free to wear Christmas hats or anything festive in the hair!

What:  We will have a wonderful pianist, Rosanne Simunovic, play Christmas songs as we dance for 30 minutes. After that, we will sing and greet our “SPECIAL SOMEONE”.  We will eat fresh baked goods, and everyone will leave with a gift from Santa J  Families who have multiple children dancing are more than welcome to join the same Christmas party to make it easier on the parents. 

SPECIAL PRESENTATION FOR SANTA!!  Since we are in recital mode, we will invite all groups to perform their recital dance for other dancers, their parents and for SANTA!  Choreography will certainly not be done by then, but this is a great way to practice and to get our young dancers used to performing in front of a small audience.

Altered Schedule:

10:00-11:15             Tot Ballet, Creative Ballet, Pre-Primary Ballet, Tap/Jazz Combo in Studio A

11:45-1:00             Primary Ballet, Grade 1 Ballet, Grade 2 Ballet, Jazz 2 in Studio A
