June 2014 Newsletter

We have 1 week left, then it’s time to “Sit Back, Relax, and Enjoy the Show!”

Pre Registration for Fall 2014 is happening NOW! Visit our website www.SheridanDanceAcademy.ca click the registration link on the left and scroll DOWN to see next season’s classes. Be sure to check the dates of the classes you are looking at, as this year’s classes can still be seen at the top of the page.

We are changing “Picture Day” to “Picture WEEK” at SDA! In hopes of keeping your schedules a little more calm, we will be taking Class and Solo pictures of your dancers during their regular class times. PICTURE WEEK IS THIS WEEK! BEGINNING MONDAY JUNE 2ND. Dancers must attend class the week of June 2nd with their costume on, tights (check in with your teacher or email us if you’re unsure of tight color), Hair in a French braid or high pony (Bun for all Ballet Classes), and proper dance shoes. If your dancer arrives without tights (or the wrong color) she will be given the correct color and a note written on your account.

Plan to leave your dancer at the studio for his/her full class time during picture week. If there is any time left after photos are taken dancers will rehearse their recital dance(s).

Tuesday June 3rd. Jazz/Tap Combo has been extended to 6-7:30pm, Senior Jazz moved to 7:30- 8:30pm, Stretch Class 8:30-9pm.

Please view the Dress Rehearsal Schedule to see if your dancer is in the Junior Performance or the Senior Performance. If you are unsure please check in with Nicole at the front desk or reply to this email with any questions.


All dancers must attend Dress Rehearsal. Absent dancers will not be permitted to perform in the show. Please come to the downstairs entrance of the Complex. Enter through the Rehearsal Room door. Please stay in the Rehearsal Room until your child’s teacher comes to retrieve them.
Please have your dancer fully dressed, with hair and dance shoes READY at least 5 minutes prior to the timeslot they have been given.

Please stay in the Rehearsal room with your dancer (if he/she is under the age of 11) while waiting for their turn to go up to the Theatre.
Please plan to bring something to keep your dancer entertained. Your dancer will only be onstage for 15 minutes. We give the 1 hour time stlot to ensure that all dancers are present when we need them. We work hard to stay on schedule. You can help us with this by being there, and ready on time.

The upstairs entrance to the Theatre will be LOCKED. Please be sure your are in the DOWNSTAIRS Rehearsal Room ready and waiting for your child’s teacher. This is a busy night, and we hope to work together with you, to ensure that it runs positively and as smooth as possible.

Performance Nights:
All (female) dancers must wear full makeup. We do not ask you to wear makeup for Dress Rehearsal, but please go HEAVY the night of the performance. If your dancer looks pretty up close, she’s not wearing enough makeup for the stage ☺
Please plan to have your dancer dressed with hair and makeup done, dropped off in the Rehearsal Room 30 minutes prior to the show starting. Doors open 30 minutes prior as well – you may drop your child off earlier if you need to get in line.

Please note that Performance Week is the last week of “Classes”. After that we are on summer vacation! Well I am anyway ;-) If you would like to meet to discuss your dancer’s registration I will be setting meetings for the week after the Performances. Please email to request a meeting.

Summer Camps are scheduled for August this year. Register online at www.SheridanDanceAcademy.ca 

Thanks for your time,

Mariah & the SDA Team
