December News


Happy Holidays!  Wow! I just can't believe it's December already!!  Where has the time gone???? Okay, so I know we are all super busy preparing for the holidays, so I will keep this newsletter short and sweet!

REMINDER: DANCE COSTUME SIZING WEEK:   December 11th-16th.  During the last 20 mins. of class, we will have dance students try on a sizing leotard and/or gather sizing information from our parents. This is for our Celebration Performance in June.  Please mark this week on your calendar and be available as costumes must be ordered in January and we do not plan to have another sizing week due to holiday vacation.

PERFORMANCE WEEK FOR ACTING STUDENTS' FAMILIES AND FRIENDS: Our Little Burbank Players & Young Burbank Players classes have had one busy semester preparing for their end of semester showcases for families and friends. Students have been busy creating costumes, scenery, and learning their parts. We look forward to this being a special and low-pressure event for our acting students and families (and a great warm up performance for their main stage show in June)!

Here are the dates:

  • Performance of our Young Burbank Players "Kids Variety Show":Tuesday, 12/12/17
  • Performance for our Little Burbank Players "I'm a Superhero": Thursday 12/14/17

Please arrive at the studio 20 mins before the end of class to watch your child shine! Don't forget to bring your camera!

MUSIC STUDENTS PREPARE FOR PARENT'S DAY: Our private music students will also be performing for families and friends during their end of semester showcase.  Students will be performing their pieces during their regular class time the week of 12/11/17- 12/15/17. This is a very exciting time for them and we can't wait to see them share their music with you! Please plan to arrive the last 10 mins before the end of class.

BALLET PERFORMANCE AWARDS:  We are super excited! We have just confirmed our venue for our Performance Awards On March 25th, 2018. The theater is amazing!  i just finished picking out the gorgeous stage backdrop and we are now working on lighting!!  They even have a dinner theater set-up!  Oh, my! The possibilities make my head spin!  All I can say is, "Oh, Yes, Let's!!!"

Students have already begun learning the choreography and videos have been posted privately for them to view and practice at home. Older students will have a chance to view themselves on video so we can discuss in class. This is bound to be a grand time and a wonderful celebration for all our hard-working ballet students!! 

 HOLIDAY VACATION DATES Classes will be closed from 12/18/17- 01/01/18  CLASSES RESUME  01/02/18. 


Our families' questions, thoughts, ideas, and concerns are very important to me as a school owner and teacher.  I know that  during busy teaching times, I may not always have a chance to speak individually with each of our wonderful parents. So between the hours of 12-2pm on Fridays I will be in the office for the sole purpose of taking your phone calls.  Please book your time in your Member Portal under "Book Appointments or Lessons". I look forward to chatting with you!
