HAPPY BIRTHDAY (JANUARY) . . . Nicki Fiely, Tinica Mertz,  Allison Smith, Micaela Wenning

CLASS CANCELLATIONS due to weather will be made at 3 pm.  You may look at the website or facebook or listen to K-94 (or their websites) or Center Stage Facebook.  Remember, just because school is cancelled, does not necessarily mean that the studio will be closed. Make-up classes will be scheduled as soon as possible after the closure. (For example, Tuesday Jan 7 classes were made-up on Wednesday, Jan 8.)

Each student should have made three deposits and/or participated in fundraisers. A statement will be handed to your child starting Jan 13 with the final balance information that includes costumes, t-shirt, recital fees, and accessories costs while deducting deposits and fundraisers. The costume management company that we utilize does not separate individual costume costs, so please refer to the September handout that was given to you at the beginning of the year. The balance is due no later than February 1. This may be paid by check, cash, or credit card.

There have also been many opportunities to raise money for the June Show and I want to congratulate those who participated and have been able to pay in its entirety or more than half. Many studios do not go out of their way to help lower cost in such a manner, but we have been doing this for 19 years and it works. So hat's off to you for making it worth it to make your fundraisers a success. I wish more people would have participated.

Please check our website for contest schedule. A list of competitions is currently being updated on our website. Make sure that your name is listed at the front desk as competing. If not, please add it at the bottom. The teams will be wearing the 2013 National t-shirts to competitions during March-May as well as the team jacket. These are available at the studio if you do not have one. Jackets are on display at the studio. Pick up an order form at the front desk and have form and payment turned in no later than February 1.


Any fundraiser after December will be used the following ways: Competition teams will use their money for registration fees. All other students will use their money for class fees.

Please make sure that you have read & understand the fundraising information that was handed to you in your September Newsletter & Policy Sheet. Keep on fundraising!!!

Thoughts For Winter

Visualize exactly what you want to accomplish then . . . get to work! Spin, fall, twist, fall, kick, ouch, spot, oops . . . So what if you have 4,000 failed attempts before you do it just once correctly! But once you do it correctly, there is no going back! Your goal has been reached!
