EDC Parents and Students:

It's beginning to look a lot like... "Nutcracker"!!

Please join us for our 9th Annual "The Nutcracker", Saturday December 16th which is only one week from this Saturday! We are hoping our Encore families will plan on coming out and support our cast of dancers as they perform our annual holiday studio tradition. Our dancers have been tirelessly rehearsing their hearts out! There will be two performances on Saturday, 2:00pm matinee and a 7:00pm evening performance. Our show will be held at the same venue as our June 2017 recital, The Louise K Performing Arts Center on the Monrovia High School campus. Tickets can be purchased at the studio or at the door for the cost of $25.00 each. Please note there is no reserved seating, it is first come first serve on seats. Nichelle has outdone herself once again with new choreography & music along with some new surprises! You don't want to miss this beautiful rendition of this classic holiday tradition! Hope we see you there …please tell a friend and come enjoy our EDC Nutcracker!


We are sad to announce that Bella Briscoe will be leaving our Encore family in December. It is a bittersweet goodbye as she is beloved by the staff and students at Encore. We are on the other hand, so proud of this young woman's accomplishments and the exciting journey in front of her. After graduating from a 4 year college in just 2 years, she was accepted into a very prestigious program at NYU for nursing...only 3% of the people that apply to this program are accepted, so way to go Bella! As a result, she will be moving to her beloved New York City to pursue her dreams in the medical field. We know we will see her from time to time on her visits home. We wish her all the best, we love you Bella and THANK YOU!

A big warm welcome back to Amber!! Amber Dupuy, who left Encore a couple of years ago to join the cast of "Showstoppers" in Las Vegas will be resuming her classes again! We are beyond thrilled to have Amber back on staff regularly. How LUCKY are we all at Encore with our continued AMAZING staff!


We are currently supporting our long time employee Nichelle with her husband's battle with cancer. Thank you to Jenelle Fritz, Tonya Pace and Jennifer Perez for helping them launch a "cancer clothing gear line". There will be T-shirt's, jackets & hats displayed for order. All proceeds will go directly to Nichelle & Reggie to help defer the astronomical medical bills. Thank you for your support and prayers.


The studio will be CLOSED for the holidays from Monday December 18th through Monday January 1st, and will reopen on Tuesday January 2nd 2018.

Please be informed that January tuition is still due on the 25th and considered late if received after the 1st. If you are not on autopay, please mail in your payment (must be postmarked no later than the 1st) to 432 E. Foothill Blvd San Dimas or you can drop it through the mail slot in the front door at the studio. Mail will be picked up daily during our holiday closure. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

I would like to close by thanking my incredible Encore Moms who jump in and help when needed with our shows. To Michelle Bowman, Amber Dupuy and Griffin Miller for our "soirée fundraiser" and to all who came and supported it. Thank you so much! Xx

To Donna, Amber, Bella, Jenelle, Cindy, Robin, Irene, Carol, Linda, Lisa, Catherine, Jeanine, Andrea, Jennifer G., Tanya, Jen, Michelle, Michelle J., Olivia and her sweet Mom in Minnesota, (I apologize if I've missed anyone), I can't thank you all enough. Just takes a village to get these shows off the ground. Please know how much you are appreciated and how your support for the studio and me never goes unnoticed. Grateful beyond words! 


Upon your return in January, we will be launching our recital theme... can you take a guess what it will be????!!! Please be prepared for recital fees which will be due mid-January. Recital fee is $60.

From all the staff at Encore, we thank you for an amazing year, and appreciate your continued business and support. We wish you and yours a blessed holiday and a happy new year!!
