Dear Parents and Students:

Wow, where did July go??!! I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day celebrating our great nation's birthday!

Thank you for all the wonderful feedback on our June performance of "It's an Encore World After All!" I think we even impressed the Dad's, Grandpa's and Uncles! The team effort of the staff, many volunteers and our fabulous dancers combined for a great day in the park! It takes a village so thank you, thank you & thank you with love!

I am now taking orders through August for our video of this year's performance ...you don't want to miss this one! The DVD is professionally captured by the award winning Video Adventures. Along with our standard 2 disc DVD for $59.50, this year you will also have the choice of ordering the show in BlueRay technology for an additional $10.00 which comes in a single disc. Please specify at the time of ordering which format you prefer. We will require payment at the time you place your order. If you have already paid and want to upgrade to the BlueRay, just let me know.

Recital Photos – "It's an Encore World after all" Our good friend Brigham Freeth was kind enough to photograph the show for me. He captured over 2,000 images! He is setting up a link where you can view the images for purchase. We will sent out the link via remind when it's ready to go. Thank you so much Brigham!

Bunny Murphy Scholarship Winners!

What an exceptional year this is!! This year we awarded the Bunny Murphy Scholarship to three very dedicated dancers as it was a three way tie amongst the votes. Congratulations to Ali Beeso, Jadyn Corral and Abby Loucks. All three of these young ladies are deserving of this award with their continued commitment and dedication. I know my mom would be very honored to have all three represent her award. Thank you to Kennedy Perez for being a perfect role model of my mother's legacy for the past year.

"It's an Encore World after all" Lost and Found

There is a lost & found box located in the rear lobby from our recent show. Please check it for anything you might be missing in the lost and found bench too. All contents will be donated at the end of August.

Summer Participation/Registration Reminder

A reminder of our summer attendance policy…if any student is inactive more than 60 days, a re-registration fee of $35.00 will need to be paid upon returning to class in the fall. Any student currently enrolled at Encore must return and pay tuition between August 25-September 1st to avoid a re-registration fee. Please note if you choose to take the summer off, then being placed into the same class upon returning is subject to change depending on class enrollment. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please feel free to see me or email me directly.

Encore Facelift & Construction

Please be advised that my landlord will be doing some improvements to the exterior of our building as well as new construction at the rear of the property. Improvements will include a new parking lot. Construction hours will be conducted from 7am-3:30 and should not impact business hours for the most part. We will post a picture of the renovation shortly in the lobby. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
