OCTOBER 2019 ~ NEWSLETTER

 

Happy October! Welcome back to our 24th season at Just 4 Kicks! Here’s our first newsletter of the year to keep everyone up to date with upcoming dates and events.

 

Dress Code

Now that we are a month into the season, we do expect proper attire/shoes as per the Just 4 Kicks’ dress code. If you are trying a new genre of dance, and are not sure what type of shoes you need, we can point you in the right direction for dancewear stores. If you have any questions as to what your child needs specifically for shoes/attire, please contact the office and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Attendance

Just a friendly reminder regarding attendance....all classes are groups, a team. Not having a full class really makes it difficult to accomplish the year end routine or prepare for competition. Please let the office know if you/your child will be absent.

 

Competitive students, if you miss more than 3 classes, you will possibly be asked to withdraw from that class. If you have a solo/duet/trio, you may lose that opportunity as well.

 

We understand when there are unforeseen circumstances (sickness, family emergency, weather). So we are asking parents to contact the office with the reason for the absence.

 

We truly are doing what is best for the groups and for the best learning experience/environment for everyone. We hope this comes across in the most positive way. We are truly trying to be on top of this as last year we had several issues with this. We all appreciate your efforts on this!

 

COSTUME DEPOSITS are due November 20th.

After this date, late fees will apply. We are not able to process these deposits through our Pre-Authorized Payment, but we do accept E-Transfer/Cash/Debit/Credit/Cheque.

SANTA CLAUS PARADE INFO

 

This year’s Santa Claus Parade will be on Saturday November 23rd!

 

We will be holding a mandatory rehearsal for dancers ages 10 and up to review the routine and organize spots for anyone who would like to take part in this year’s parade. Please sign up in the office! This rehearsal will take place on Friday November 22nd from 5pm- 7pm. Please dress warm, as we will be practicing outside as well!

 

We are also looking for students 9 and under to help hand out cookies during the parade. Please sign up in the office if you are interested. If any parents are available to walk in the parade to help the kids handing out cookies, we would appreciate that as well.

 

All students participating are asked to please bring 12 individually wrapped cookies the week of the parade.

 

Students are required to wear a black Just 4 Kicks sweater or jacket, red gloves and black pants. Girls, please wear your hair in a high ponytail, and when we meet the studio, we will be adding tinsel to everyone’s hair! Boys please wear a Santa hat!

 

The Parade starts at 11am so students are asked to arrive at the Studio at 10am so we can walk over to Leisure World together. Any parents wishing to drop their child off at Leisure World may also do so no later than 10:45am.

 

We will be going back to the studio after the parade for treats. We are also looking for parents to stay back at the studio while the students are dancing to prepare treats for the dancers. Please let us know if you’re interested.
