Dear EDC Parents and Students:

An Irish Blessing for our Encore families...

It's MARCH MADNESS alright... literally!!
Thank you to everyone for your patience, support, concerned emails, texts, & phone calls this past week during the incident at the studio. We feel we have been given a miracle that the damages were minor.

We are SOOO HAPPY to announce the studio opens back up today, Friday March 9th with our normal dance schedule. So it's back to business for preparations for our June performance "Until the last Petal Falls". Any student performing in our June performance must have regular attendance in class from now until show time. We limit the absences to 3 per student and any more absences beyond that must be cleared through me. The instructors will be keeping roll and informing me of any misses beyond 3. Please understand, it is very hard for the instructor and fellow students to work around a missing student. Please be sure to place a courtesy call when your child is going to be absent. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Thank you to all of the families involved in our upcoming June performance, and for your prompt payments for the costumes. Costumes have been ordered and all confirmations are in. I will be posting a costume board of the ordered costumes next Monday. Please note that costumes that are being sewn or bought will not be posted on the display board.

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming important dates!!!

Spring Break Closure - March 26th through March 31st

We will be closed for spring break Monday March 26th through Saturday March 31st. Classes will resume on Monday Apr 2nd. Please be advised all upcoming dates are posted on our calendar for your convenience. Thank you!

See's Fundraiser – Monday April 9th

April is the month we gear up for our annual "See's" Candy Fundraiser. This fundraiser is mandatory for all students that are involved in this year's recital production of "Until the Last Petal Falls." All proceeds help defer the costs of our rented backdrops & elaborate props. Each child is required to sell 2 boxes of candy bars (24 bars per box @ $2.00 each). Note, for families with multiple children, our policy is 1 box per child. We offer the option of a $50 buyout for the families who would rather not sell the candy bars. The $50 donation is the equivalent of the profit of the sales of the bars. The fundraiser begins Monday April 9th and will run until Saturday May 5th. If you are on autopay and have chosen the buyout plan on your child's measurement form, please notify us when to run your card. Thank you.

If we don't receive your commitment to sell candy bars by the requested due date, I will assume you have chosen the buyout option, and you will be charged accordingly. There will be a sign up sheet at the front desk. All monies from the candy fundraiser will be due by Saturday May 5th. There will be a prize for the student who sells the most candy bars! Thank you in advance for your support.

APRIL SHOWCASE

After reaching out to many facilities to find a location that would fit with our date and budget, we have found a venue in Pasadena for our April showcase. However, we are still waiting on stagehand confirmation. We will update you in the next week as to whether we have the venue confirmed or if we will be cancelling the event for this year. The tentative scheduled weekend is Friday April 20th (tech) and show on Saturday April 21st . Fingers crossed!

Tuition Reminder

A reminder to all families in the studio our tuition is due on the 25th of month and payable up to the 1st. Any tuition received after the 1st will incur a $15 late fee... no exceptions! You have the option to pay by cash, check or credit card. You can mail your payment, which must be postmarked no later than the 1st, to 432 E. Foothill Blvd San Dimas 91773, or drop it through the door in our mail slot. Additionally, you may call the studio with your credit card which we can charge over the phone or pay in person at the front desk.

Please be reminded that even though the studio is closed on April 1st for Spring Break, tuition is still due by the 25th of March and will be considered late if received after April 1st... no exceptions!

Wishing all our Encore families a relaxing spring break and blessed Easter holiday.

 

Sincerely,
