Merry Christmas,

This time last year we were preparing The Greatest Gift of All for performance. This year we have been doing a lot of dancing for community requests but haven't had much new choreography to learn. That will soon change as we plunge into the dances for "Wardrobe."

Sarah, Josh and I have been comparing notes on various DVD versions, listening to music cds, and pouring over costume books which brings me to COSTUMES. I will be making costume orders out over the next two weeks. If you have not yet paid for costumes, please do so by the December 15th Deadline. I will have some extra costume charges for solo dancers/parts and jazz class. I will try to have statements prepared for those extra costumes by the 15th. IF YOU HAVE PAID FOR COSTUMES BUT ARE BEHIND ON CLASS PAYMENTS FOR THE FALL, I WILL HAVE TO APPLY YOUR RECITAL FEE TO CLASSES & WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ORDER COSTUMES FOR YOUR CHILD.

The Ballet Magnificat Workshop and Performance in Yankton at the end of October was a real highlight of our dance year. The advanced classes were small so there was plenty of room to dance. Not to mention the fun time we had dining out together and shopping.
Abbey Nold, Emily Plumage, sarah Easter, Josh Easter and Ms. Sunny did three dance pieces for the 12 hour Reformation Prayer Network worship at the Capitol Visitor's Center on 11/11/11. . . In Christ Alone, Your Great Name, and Shekinah.

We have a request to repeat these three dances on December 27th at St. John's for a presentation of song, music, dance and drams.

Thanksgiving weekend Josh and Sarah Easter and Ms. Sunny performed Shekinah twice for the SD Women's Prison with much appreciation from the inmates.

Student Examinations

If you or your student are interested in getting started with Cecchetti student examinations let us know.

Ballet III and up are eligible to start working on Grade 1. Examinations take a lot of preparation, study, and commitment.
(Normally 1-2 years is spent studying per grade. More as you progress through the grades.)

Our studio is affiliated with the Cecchetti Council of America. All teachers hold certificates in the Cecchetti Method.
