Dear Parents and Students,

February is already here! Students are getting excited with the preparation of our annual June performance.  Costume balances are currently due. Each family should have received an email at the end of January with your balance due.  If your child is in more than one class and you would like an itemization of each costume, please contact Heather or Karrie. Please make costumechecks payable to: Karrie Stang Mason. Costumes run in small, medium, large and extra large sizes. They are not made to exact measurements but are ordered carefully according to each costume company’s sizing chart. Please keep in mind that many costumes may need slight alterations.  Once costumes are paid in full students will receive them upon arrival. It is very important to hang your costumes in a safe place until “Picture Day” then again until Dress Rehearsal. Please do not wear your costumes prior to then. All costumes are non-refundable and unable to be replaced.

“Gotta Dance” will be closed from Monday, February 19th - Saturday, February 24th during school vacation. There will be a Competition and Dance team rehearsal on Tuesday, February 20th from 4:00-6:00 pm. Students may leave after their routines are rehearsed. Our Competition and Dance Team performance will take place on Wednesday, February 21stat 10:30 am (call 10:20) at the Chelmsford Senior Center. We will NOT have Saturday competition rehearsal during this week but WILL have our mandatory Celtics rehearsal at the Boys and Girls Club on Sunday, February 25th from 4:00 - 6:00pm. Please be sure to wear your costume and bring an extra shirt to change in to.
