November 2018


Dear Parents and Students,

Happy November! All students should be situated in their classes at this point. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns with your current classes. We do still have openings in some classes if anyone is interested in adding a class please email Heather at or Karrie at as soon as possible. We are still registering for some classes through November.

NOVEMBER HOLIDAYS: Gotta Dance will be CLOSED on Monday, November 12th in observation of Veteran’s Day and Wednesday, November 21st – Saturday, November 24th for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  We will be OPEN on Tuesday, November 6th for all classes even though Billerica Public Schools have no school due to Election Day.

COSTUME DEPOSITS are currently due throughout the month of November in the amount of $40.00 per class/per student including dance team (competition costumes are separate).   Please keep all costume payments separatefrom tuition and payable to “Karrie Mason”. Costumes will be ordered during Christmas break to guarantee arrival for our June performance. Balances will be due in late January/early February. These balances should not exceed the amount of $30.00 per costume. All costume payments are non-refundable. If costume deposits are not received by the end of November, costumes will not be ordered and cannot be ordered at a later date. Payment plans are available for students or families enrolled in more than 3 classes. Please contact Heather by November 15th to discuss payment options. Costume measurements will be taken throughout the month of November and December. If your child is absent from class during measurements, please be sure to set up an appointment to get measured before the holiday break. Costumes run in small, medium and large sizes. Measurements are taken a little larger to allow room for students to grow throughout the year. Please expect some alterations when your costumes arrive. They are not custom made to each child.
