Halloween Week
We will have Halloween Week at the studio starting next Tuesday, Oct. 24th – Monday, Oct. 30th.   All dancers in the Level K-5yrs and up can wear Halloween themed attire to class. (Halloween t-shirt, hair bow, socks, skirt, etc.)  We ask that dancers please wear correct dance shoes and clothes that they can move in.  Dancers may also bring a small treat to share with their class if they would like.  Parents may come in to class the last 15 min to view a short Halloween combo their child is working on. We are going to have a SPOOKTACULAR time!

Halloween Tot Preschool Classes
Halloween Preschool parties will start next Tuesday, Oct. 24th –Monday, Oct. 30th.  All preschool parents should have received a paper with details about class parties.  Parents will be allowed in to class the last 25 min to view a dance combo and party time. 

Tuesday, October 31
All studios will be closed on Tuesday, October 31 for Halloween.

Dancers Edge Christmas Sweatshirts
DE Christmas Sweatshirt Order form.  This is a limited Christmas sweatshirt that will pre-sold only and it is so cute.  This sweatshirt may be ordered for any of our DE Dancers but must be ordered for all Hanford Christmas Parade Participants.  Orders are due no later than 8:00pm on Wednesday, Nov. 8th.  Sweatshirts for Parade Participants will be available on Wednesday, Nov. 22.  All remaining sweatshirt orders will be available on Monday, Nov. 27th. 

Preschool Tot Classes
All the Tot Teachers would like to ask a favor.  Can parents please make sure to tie and tuck bows into dancer’s shoes before they come into class.  Parents may even knot strings to fit comfortably then cut strings leaving 2 inches and tuck strings into shoes.  Our sweet little dancers do not like to dance when their strings come untied and we find most of the class time is tying shoes, lol.  We appreciate you helping us out.

Halloween Guessing Game Contest
Make sure your dancer stops by the front desk and guesses how many candies are in the jar.  The dancer at each studio who comes the closest will win a DE Tank and $50 towards November tuition.  Winners to be announced on Wednesday, November 1st.

Musical Production “Little Mermaid” Notes- From Teacher Adrienne
A Participation Note will be going home to all our “Little Mermaid” students.  This note is to confirm whether your child will be participating in our June production of “Little Mermaid.” This form needs to be returned to the office by the end of the month.  This note will be placed on file and lets us know who to order a costume for. 

Don’t forget: Little Mermaid auditions will be held during class time as follows:
Visalia Downtown: Wednesday, November 1st at 5:30
Hanford Studio: Tuesday, November 7th at 5:30.
All participants will be cast in the production but this is just a fun way to give the participants an audition type feel and cast all solo parts.  Anyone ages 7-18 are welcome to audition but will need to register for the production class.  We are still taking new students!

Hanford Christmas Parade
We are now taking sign-ups for any dancer age 8 & up to dance in the Hanford Christmas Parade.  You may sign up at the Hanford Studio front counter.  The Hanford Christmas Parade is the evening of Friday, Nov. 24th.  All participants must purchase a DE Christmas sweatshirt to wear in the parade.  Order forms are attached to this email.

Parade Rehearsals:
Saturday, November 18th 12:00pm-2:00pm
Wednesday, November 22nd 10:30am-12:00pm
Both rehearsals are mandatory for anyone participating in the parade as we will be learning choreography on Saturday and reviewing choreography on Wednesday.  We will also be passing out our parade sweatshirts and discussing important parade night details, so it is very important to be present at both rehearsals.  If you have any questions, please feel free to talk with Teacher Blake.  We are so excited to get in the holiday spirit and represent our studio. 


Way to go T3 Performing Team!  They had a big weekend and did a Fantastic job performing at The Taste of the Arts and The Calico Festival!  We are so proud of these performers. 
Keep Up the good work!

We would like to congratulate Teacher Azulie and her husband Brandon!  Precious Baby Camila was born on Oct. 14th.  She is just beautiful and Mommy and Baby are doing great!  Welcome to the DE Family Camila!  While Teacher Azulie is away on maternity leave Teacher Carli will be subbing her classes.

Studio Safety - We ask that you please be cautious when driving in and out of the studio. Be alert for dancers coming and going! We also ask that you respect our neighbors and do not park in front of their businesses. Reminder the front of the studio is a Loading/Unloading area!
