SUNDAY May 21st & June 4th – Sunday May 21st is our 1st runthrough for our show. A schedule of times will be posted in the lobby on May 8th.

The second run though is Sunday June 4th.


Costumes will be distributed starting the week of May 15th as they are finalized. I am aware its Memorial weekend, however with the show 2 weeks out I have no choice. If you are unable to make it, please check with someone in your class for costume and hair details. Thank you. All tuition, late fees, candy money, outstanding costume payments must be cleared by May 27th in order for your child to collect costumes, no exceptions.


The Studio will be closed Monday May 29th to observe Memorial Day. We will reopen on Tuesday May 30th.

Our 2017 It's an Encore World After All cast member recital t-shirt is being developed. We expect to release the design in the next few weeks, and will post it on the bulletin board in the EDC cafe. All students in the show will have their name featured on the back side of the t-shirt, and we will have the list posted for your review. Please check to make sure your name is shown and spelled correctly and notify the front desk of any changes as soon as possible.

Prices are $24.95 for adults S-XL, and $21.95 for youth sizes S-L.
Orders for the t-shirts will be taken thru Thursday May 25th only.
T shirts will be handed out at dress rehearsal on Saturday June 10th unless we are able to get them earlier.


Our accessory board is now posted. Please check the board for orders for tights and shoes from Revolution Dancewear, along with specialty shoes. Revolution orders need to be placed by Tuesday May 9th. All Amazon shoe orders should be placed promptly to assure you get them. Please see the flyer displayed with the accessory board.

If you are ordering anything online at Discount Dance, or purchasing in their store, please use the following promotional code: TP00131. This will ensure EDC receives store points for all our recital purchases. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. Between now and show time, it's a good idea to pop in weekly just to check on any added info posted on the desk. Thanks!

EDC is now using Remind.com

We sent an email out last week notifying everyone we are using Remind.com to inform our customers of updates on time or class changes, additional rehearsals and reminders on EDC Dates and Events! ALL YOU DO IS TEXT 81010 WITH YOUR CLASS CODE! Additional information can be found on the bulletin board in the lobby for class codes and info, or email Jenelle at jfritz370@gmail.com with any questions you may have.


Have you ever been to Disneyland and seen all those amazing bricks with people's names on them as you walk into the Magic Kingdom? Well now's your chance to have your name featured at the presentation of "It's an Encore World After All!" We are selling Encore "tiles" to our dancers for $10.00 each, which enters you for a chance to win 4 tickets to Disneyland!! Each tile will display our Encore logo, the dancers name and how many years they have danced at Encore.

Every time a dancer sells a seat ticket to the recital, that dancer will add a gold star to their tile for every ticket sold. The dancer with the most stars for the most recital seats sold will receive $100 off their tuition! We will post the tiles on the walls at the studio for display. The grid of Encore tiles will be also be displayed in the auditorium on show day and will be featured in the program. At intermission on show day, we will randomly draw one winner from all the dancers who sold tickets, and that lucky winner gets 4 tickets to Disneyland!!


A fabulous shout out to all the dancers who performed in Showcase in April!! Thank you to Joelle Martinec for heading up the project and to our talented instructors with their creative choreography!! There has been nothing but RAVE reviews from all who attended!!! Success!
