DE Company News... (updated 11/15)

Upcoming Events...

We hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  With the Thanksgiving Holiday quickly approaching we just want to take time to say how blessed we are for our DE Comp Family.  We love these kids and are so proud of them.  They are working so hard in technique classes and rehearsals and their love of dance shines bright!  Thank you parents for being so supportive.  You guys are awesome!

Choreography Rehearsals
Please see the attached choreography rehearsals. All rehearsals will be held at the Visalia North location. Many new rehearsals have been added.  We tried our best to make the extra “rehearsal schedule” work for everyone however if there is a conflict please let us know.

New “PBT” Ballet Class Starts Tonight!
Come check out our new ballet class offered to our older company dancers.  We will now be offering a “Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) Class.”  Teacher Cate has been certified to teach this incredible class and we will be offering it to our Company members ages 11 & Up.   This class will be held at our Visalia Downtown location on from 4:30-5:30 starting tonight.  Dancers may enroll online and it will be a one class increase on monthly tuition. Attached is a list of supplies dancers will need for this class.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

2017-2018 Comp Routine Names
Attached to this email is a list of all routines and their “song name” for the year.  From now on we will refer comp rehearsals by their “Song Name.”  This will make it much simpler for everyone to identify with for any updates, costume notes and rehearsals.  Please make sure to know what routine your child is in.

**Showstopper Disneyland Hotel**
Well wasn’t that fun…..not!  Lol, we hope everyone got a reservation if they were wanting to stay at the Disneyland Hotel for Showstoppers in May.  If you were not successful we encourage you to try back monthly especially in May when the schedule comes out.  Many people will cancel nights according to their dancers dance schedule and rooms will become available. 

Tamale & Enchilada Fundraiser
This fundraiser is now going on.  This fundraiser is optional but a great way to add money to your DE Account.  We hope our DE Families take advantage of this great fundraiser.
