November Newsletter – 2020

Welcome back to our 25th season at Just 4 Kicks!

We’re off to a wonderful start this year and are really looking forward to the rest of this season! This Newsletter is to keep everyone up to date with events and dates for the remainder of the year, and to answer some of your questions!

 

COSTUME DEPOSITS

In the past, we have always required costume deposits to be paid by November 20th as all costumes are ordered between Nov. 1st – March 1st .  With most of our competitive costumes already ordered and delivered, we have decided to extend that date until February 1st, 2021.  I would feel more comfortable waiting to do so due to the uncertainty we have faced this year.

After that date, a $10/costume late fee will be applied to your account. After we have received your deposit, your costume will be ordered.  Refunds will not be available after the order has been placed.

SANTA CLAUS PARADE    

*DUE TO COVID, THE GRAVENHURST SANTA CLAUS PARADE HAS BEEN CANCELLED THIS YEAR.

We will be filming a short 30 second video for the Chamber of Commerce’s Virtual Parade. We will be doing this during regular classes over the next few weeks. Starting next Monday, November 16th, we will be asking all dancers to wear their studio jackets/sweaters!

 

J4K SWEATER ORDERS

This season, we will be placing studio sweater orders after Christmas as we are designing special edition 25th Anniversary attire to celebrate this milestone!

 

Gift ideas for your dancer could include a gift certificate for private lessons. 

We will create custom Gift Certificates for your dancer. 

One 30min Private lesson is valued at $33.90 (taxes included). 

There will be a discount if you purchase 4 at a cost of $113.00 (taxes included).  That is a savings of $22.60.

 

CHRISTMAS BREAK

Our last classes before the Christmas break will be Saturday December 19th. Classes will commence on Monday, January 4th 2021.

 

During the last week before the break (Dec. 14th – Dec. 19th), we are hoping to have a parent viewing week! If things progress in a positive manner with regards to Covid-19, and deemed safe by the local health unit, we are hoping to have the catwalk open for 1 parent to view their dancer’s progress!  If restrictions remain as they are today, progress will be videotaped or done virtually.

 

COMPETITIVE CLEANING SESSIONS

Tanya Karn will be coming back to the studio to re-block, review & clean ‘Like A Dream’& ‘Wicked Girls’ on, Monday December 21st.    We will also be offering some workshop classes for our Intermediate competitive dancers, so please mark that date in your calendars.

 

Emily Battalia Dates TBA for ‘Storm’ & ‘Pray’.  We are looking at Wednesday, Dec. 23rd or Monday, Dec. 28th or Wednesday, Dec. 30th.  Just waiting for Emily to confirm.
