It’s our 19th Birthday!
On Thursday, March 7th we will be celebrating our 19th year! Whoa, how the time flies when you love what you’re doing and having fun…dancing!! We know we say it every year, but we couldn’t have made it this far without you! Thank you all for your support, whether you’ve been with us since day 1 or just joined our dance family yesterday. There is nothing more rewarding in this world than doing and sharing what we love with you and your kids. We thank you for making DDPAC your 2nd home, for being a part of our dance family, and allowing us to be a part of your lives. To further celebrate our 19th year, we will be picking 3 dancers from our enrollment list that will win a $45 credit towards their April tuition. One name from each age group (2-6 year olds, 7-11 year olds, and 12 and up) will be chosen at random (our computer system will determine the winners). Every dancer that is enrolled for February and March will be included in the drawing. Winners will be posted on our TV screen in the lobby on March 7th. We love you all from the bottom of our hearts! Happy 19th Anniversary/Birthday, DDPACers!
March Theme Week
Every month we have a different theme week for our dancers to enjoy. For the month of March, we will be having a “Jungle Safari” week! This fun week will take place Monday, March 11th -Saturday, March 16th. Dancers are encouraged to attend their dance class dressed in their cutest animal/animal print/animal inspired outfits! We just ask that any accessories the dancer might wear won’t cause any distractions while in class. Please remember that theme weeks are just for fun and are not mandatory to participate in.
We will be closed Friday, March 29th and Saturday, March 30th for our spring break. There are 5 Fridays and 5 Saturdays in the month of March, therefore there is no need to pro-rate tuition as dancers will still have their 4 classes for the month. However, if you wish, please feel free to make up any missed class in any other class of the same age/level. We thank you for your cooperation!
2019 Performance Season
Our 2019 Performance Season is quickly approaching! Our BIG 19th Annual Performance is scheduled for Thursday, June 20th through Saturday, June 22nd at Grand Terrace High School’s Auditorium. Leading up to this performance we will be having multiple smaller performances including:
-19th Annual Performance June 20th-June 22nd at Grand Terrace High School’s Auditorium.
-DDPAC “Pre-Performance” scheduled for Tuesday, April 30th at Grand Terrace High School’s Cafeteria at 5pm and 6:30pm
-DDPAC “Pre-Performance” Performance Tentatively for Thursday, May 23rd
-Grand Terrace Days (*select classes only) beginning of June
-We will also be scheduling DDPAC Picture Days for class photographs as well as individual photos to be taken in May/June 2018.
We know it seems like we have some time before our performance season begins, however it really is just around the corner! Most of our dance classes will begin or have just recently started learning a routine to participate in our 2019 performances. Your teachers have also chosen costumes to be ordered. If you would like your child to participate in any of the 2019 performances, your child will need to have the appropriate costume. If you choose not to participate in any of our 2019 performances, that is okay. Your child will still be allowed to learn the routine and practice the dance in class. However, they will not be able to perform during any of the performances. Only students who have purchased a costume, or assembled the appropriate outfit if the teacher decides to have you provide something on your own, will be allowed to perform. If you missed out on ordering a 2019 Performance Season costume, please see the front desk or send us an email to see if it is still possible to do so. Also, please note that not every class will participate in our 2019 performances as this is up to the teacher’s discretion. Feel free to ask your teacher or send us an email if you have questions on which classes will be participating in our 2019 performances, and which classes will not. Performance season is our favorite season and we cannot wait to see all of dancers showcasing their hard work!
Parking Lot Reminder
Please do not park at the hair salon next door or in any red zones. You are allowed to park in any of the marked spots and or on the street. You also have the option of parking across the street in the Stater Bros. parking lot.
If you have not already noticed, the 215 Freeway and Barton Road on-ramps and off-ramps are going through some improvements. Although the end results are going to be desirable, the construction and traffic it is causing now is definitely a headache. Please keep this construction traffic in mind when coming to the studio and when leaving the studio. We would like to suggest that when coming to the studio you either take the Mt. Vernon/Washington exit and take Mt. Vernon to Barton, or take the Center St. exit and take Center St. to Michigan to Barton. Taking 1 exit earlier or 1 exit later might help you avoid getting stuck in this traffic. Bear with us!
