A Letter from Miss Liza

Dear Parents,

Dansations is thrilled with the 2017-18 dance season. All of the teachers and staff at Dansations are enjoying working with your children. We love to help them learn, grow and develop their skills as dancers. The teachers have been spending a lot of late evenings, burning the mid-night oil picking out costumes, music and choreographing. We are so excited for this year’s recital! Your children are going to be amazing.

As you can see, we have learned a lot since classes began in September. I am so impressed with how hard everyone is working both in class and at home. In some classes, we have already begun working on recital dances. As our work continues, attendance is extremely important. It can be difficult for students to catch up on missed material. If your children are sick, and not contagious, or injured I encourage you to bring them to class so that they can watch.This helps them not feel overwhelmed when they return to dancing. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know. We are always happy to help!

Weather Closings

For weather closings, please watch Channel 2 News. On Channel 2’s web site (wgrz.com) you can sign up to have text messages sent to your phone in the event of a closing. Please note that we will close only when absolutely necessary. If you are unable to make it please do not feel pressured to drive unsafely! We do not follow the schools, as sometimes the weather is unsafe in the morning and clears up by 4pm or vise-versa. Closings will also be posted on Dansations’ Facebook and Instagram accounts, and parents will be notified via email.
