UPDATE FOR WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 27

Hi everyone; and welcome to the third week of classes!

Election Night
Just a reminder that Monday, September 27 is ELECTION NIGHT  for the provincial government; and the Charlotte Street Arts Centre is a polling station.  So there may be increased traffic, both inside and outside the Centre!

Show on Thursday, September 30
On Thursday, September 30, there will be NO regular 7:45 pm class.  The Senior Troupe is performing at CSAC, so all Senior troupe members need to be in the studio by 7:45 to warm up and practice.  We will perform in the Auditorium at 8:15.  Troupe dresses are not yet ready, so you will be wearing your solo/class dresses and wigs.

If any Senior dancer would still like to participate in a class that evening; you are welcome to come to the Adult class from 8:45 - 10:00 pm.

Junior  Troupe Auditions
SATURDAY OCTOBER 2 is our Junior Troupe audition.  The Junior Troupe is developmental, and open to any dancer in Advanced Beginner 1 (Thursday at 5:30) to Novice 2.  Auditioning dancers will have to perform two steps in two soft shoe dances (pick from reel, light jig or slip jig) as well as a group dance.  Dancers must also be able to attend bi-monthly practices until the end of April AND have either a green dress and bun wig, OR red dress and full wig.

The fee for Junior Troupe is $25 per dancer, and will be payable at our first regular practice on October 16.
