Well, so much for today predicted snowstorn!

Just to let you know that classes are ON for tonight; as the snow that was predicted doesn't seem to have materialized!!!

IF something changes dramatically; I will post a cancellation note on the blog and email the school no later than 3:00 pm.  In addition, if the weather worsens as the evening progresses; please use your judgement on whether or not it is safe to come to class. 

This is our LAST WEEK OF classes before Christmas break!  A reminder that there are no rehearsals this week-end; however the final session with Debbi Topp will be held Saturday, December 11 at 4:00 - 5:00 pm.

Rehearsals for our Christmas performance will be held on MONDAY DECEMBER 13 in the auditorium of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.  All groups are scheduled to come at different times.  These times are as follows:

5:30 - 6:00 pm:  Beginners and Junior Advanced Beginners
6:00 - 6:30 pm:  Advanced Beginners 1 & 2
6:30 - 7:00 pm:  Junior Troupe
7:00 - 7:45 pm:  Novice 1 & 2
7:30 - 8:45 pm:  Senior 1 & 2, Senior Troupe

Please note that there has been a couple of small changes; in that I would like the Novice dancers to stay an extra 15 minutes so they can practice the very BIG treble jig number with the Seniors.  Also, if possible, I would like  the Senior Troupe and Senior 1 & 2  to come together at 7:30 please. Thanks for accommodating.

A reminder that BEGINNER fees and registration (if required) for the Winter 2011 term are now being accepted & processed.  We have added a new beginner class on SATURDAYS , starting January 15, from 3:45 - 4:30.  Class is limited to 8 students. 

Thank you everyone!
