DE Company News... (updated 3/19)

Upcoming Events...

Sunday, May 21st
Just a reminder that this Sunday we are having technique classes and rehearsals for all dancers who come on Thursdays.  This Sunday will take the place of Thursday, May 25th.  There will be no classes on Thursday, May 25th.  It is a travel day for D.E. Families and Teachers heading down to Anaheim early.  Sunday, May 21st is mandatory!  Schedule is attached with this email.

Monday, May 22nd
Master Monday Teacher will be our very own Desiree Gonzalez.  She will be back working on jazz technique with our dancers.  Dancers must be in class and rehearsals on Monday. 

Tuesday, May 23rd
Prop Loading at the studio will be next Tuesday at 6:00pm.  Please send any help and muscles you can rope up.  We started off with a lot of help in the beginning of the season but these past few times we have only had 2 or 3 Dad’s helping.  Hopefully we will have a better turn out this time.  Thank you in advance. 

**We are also in desperate need of someone with a truck to take the “Another Level” sphere to Anaheim.  We do pay towards the account of anyone who takes the prop for us.  If you can help please text Tyler at 559-623-2090

Showstopper Updates

  1.  We still have not received the schedule.  We are just as eager to get the schedule as you are and once we do receive the schedule it will be emailed out to you immediately.
  1. Dress Up Week- Let’s get excited for Mickey!!!  Starting this Sunday through next Wednesday will be Disney Dress Up week for Company dancers.  This is a tradition we have and we know how excited our dancers are to show their Disney spirit!
  1.  D.E. Sister- Don’t forget your D.E. Sister next week!  This is our last competition as an entire group so make sure to wish your “D.E. Sister” good luck.  If you are unable to bring your Sister a gift please let Sharesa know so we can make other arrangements.  We do not want any of our dancers feeling left out.

Company Pictures
Company pictures for Edge and Edge Kids will take place at the Visalia Studio on Thursday, June 8th and Friday, June 9th.  The picture schedule is attached with this email.  If your dancer is unable to make pictures please let the office know.  Dancers need to arrive 10min ahead of scheduled picture time.  Company dancers need to know ahead of time what their pose will be.  Please do not take buddy or individual pictures if you have no intention on purchasing them.  It only prolongs the schedule.  Thank you for your patience. 

Recital Tickets

2 Days in OC
Many parents are asking about “2 Days in OC.” This is a 2-day convention in Costa Mesa.  It is a smaller more personal convention that offers lyrical, jazz and hip hop.  They have an amazing staff which include: Mark Meismer, Erik Saradpon, Dee Caspary and Mandy Moore just to name a few.  We have quite a few of our company dancers going and we would love to encourage more of our dancers to go.  2 Days in OC is Saturday, June 10th and Sunday, June 11th. 

We know this is a busy time of year with school coming to an end however Company Dancers still need to make all their technique classes and rehearsals.

Congratulations to Company member Julia Williams for making the Fresno State Dance Team!  We are so very proud of you!  We can’t wait to see you at games in the Fall!
