Hi wonderful Parents,
Happy March! Please see some TBDC announcements below.
As per NYS Dept of Health guidelines, masks are now optional - if you prefer your child continues to wear a mask, we'll be sure to enforce that (just let us know), but otherwise students are no longer required to wear masks. Effective Wednesday March 2nd.
Baby Ballet is FREE
If you haven't already heard, TBDC has started "Baby Ballet" an awesome high energy dance/creative movement class for ages 9 months and up. Every Sunday at 10am-10:30am. For the first few weeks it will be free of charge, so sign up and invite your friends!
TBDC Hoodies are here!
TBDC hoodies are here, featuring our 2022 poster dancer Angel Di Bari! We are taking orders now. Please let us know your child's size. We are selling them at a discounted rate of $43 (don't forget your Dance Diary discounts). They come in both children and adult sizes! We need you and your child's help to sport and support these amazing hoodies! Photos of this super cool hoodie below! Email me to purchase your order now!
March 14th-20th students may wear green to class in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day! We ask that students still wear leotards, tights and appropriate shoes, but they can be green! Green sweaters and dance skirts will be allowed as well.
Class Cancelation Policy
Just a reminder....
Class & Pickup service cancellation policy: If your child is scheduled for a regular weekly class and they cannot make it to class any given week, you must let TBDC know at least 48 hours in advance or your Dance Diary will be charged.
Notice of absence must be sent via email to my address at email@example.com or Chisato firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise the cancellation does not count. If you purchased an Advanced Dance Diary you are awarded one late cancelation voucher per refill. All other diaries will be charged for late cancelations even from the first time.
Hello incredible parents,
All in person classes are canceled due to the snowstorm. (1/29/22). Zoom classes will be held instead. Zoom links will be emailed to everyone this morning!
Spring semester is around the corner, and there's still time to sign up for new classes and to invite friends to join. Chisato (email@example.com) and I will be in touch with everyone this week to confirm exact timing and scheduling for all Spring semester classes. Please try to reply at your earliest convenience as space is filling up!
Please visit our website to register your child(ren) if you haven't already.
We have two programs:
Curated curriculum-based Ballet Program for serious students.
Lots of styles and techniques, classes for beginners and advanced students. Flexible and relaxed.
If your child will be in town from Monday February 21st- Friday February 25th:
Have them join TBDC's fun mini camp taking place that entire week from 12:00pm-4pm.
Pop Production is a mini camp for all levels!
Students will create, choreograph, direct and perform their very own production, alongside fun technique classes, upper level demonstrations, dance movies, and dance terminology! Think "School of Rock", but with dance. There will be children assigned to costume design, children in charge of lighting and stage design, choreographers, artistic directors, floor managers. Everyone will also have a dancing role, of course, but it's a wonderful opportunity for children to also learn about all the additional creative and managerial work that goes into putting together a show.
To register for this camp simply email me or Chisato at firstname.lastname@example.org as our website is still currently being updated.
Price: $90 for the day, (Don't forget your applicable Dance Diary discounts) With more than 6 Dancers signed up the price drops to $85.
Camp will take place from 12-4pm.
Limited Space is available so please confirm at your earliest convenience.
In the event we get a large number of signups students will be divided by age and technique level. We will instead host two camps on that day instead and your child will be assigned to one of the two time slots:
Epiphany Talent Show
If anyone is interested in renting out our space to film your talent show performance or need any help with choreography, please let us know, and we will add you to the schedule and help out the best way we can!
It's a bit chilly.. please visit the Parent's Lounge on our site and find the Dress code guide. Scroll down to find what "warmups" for your child to wear to class. For the time being students may wear form fitting warmups during class until the warmer weather rolls in.
See everyone this week!
We are NOT closed for the snow day.
TBDC classes are still in session today! 1/7/2021
TBDC Wishes you a Happy New Year!
