Hi everyone;

Just a reminder of the troupe rehearsals on Saturday, January 30.  The Senior Troupe will rehearse with Sammi from 4:30 - 5:30; this is a NEW slip jig choreography so it's important that everyone attend.  If you do not, you may not be included in the choreography. 

The Junior Troupe will rehearse with Sharon from 5:30 - 7:00.  This rehearsal is for the show in Oromocto on Saturday, February 6.  If you are NOT available to perform in Oromocto; you should NOT attend this rehearsal.

Similarly, you MUST attend the rehearsal in order to perform....

Any questions, don't hesitate to contact Sharon.

Re: "Dreams to Dance" show on April 11.

We would like all dancers, past and present, to bring in those costumes from dance shows past that are collecting dust in your closet!

If you still have an elf, bird, fairy, tree sprite or other similar costume (and you actually know where it is!) please bring it in to the studio. We are trying to figure out costumes for this year; and want to take a look at what we have vs. what we will need!

Thanks for your cooperation...
