December 2021


Dear Parents and Students,

The Holiday Season is approaching quickly.  We would like to remind you that in the event of inclement weather, Gotta Dance will notify families of a delay or cancelation of classes by sending an email and posting on our social media platforms as well as leaving a message on our voicemail.

Gotta Dance will be closed for school vacation from Thursday, December 23rd through Saturday, January 1st. Classes will resume on Monday, January 3rd.

 HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS:  Due to our COVID restrictions and to keep our dancers and instructors safe and healthy this holiday season, we will be unable to have our usual holiday celebrations the week before our winter break.  We will still celebrate with games and holiday music, just no food this year. We will hopefully be able to bring back our annual tradition next holiday season.  Thank you for your understanding.

HOLIDAY COMMUNITY COLLECTION for The Wish Project: The Wish Project located in Lowell, MA is absolute in need right now. Their mission is to help families in need establish long-term residency by providing furniture, household goods, clothing, and shoes; to provide critical immediate assistance to homeless families. and victims of fire or disaster; and to support the community. The Wish Project serves clients throughout Greater Lowell and the Merrimack Valley. Most of their clients have suffered a one-time life-altering event. More than 85% are women and children and elderly. They help homeless families, the elderly, mentally and physically ill, infants, babies, and individuals. They are helping so many more families than ever and basic items are going out just as fast as they are coming in.

For this holiday season, we will be helping them by collecting all sizes of sneakers and winter boots for children and adults. Both new and gently used are welcome donations.

They are struggling to keep these items in stock as the weather changes and the need increases. Send the items in with your dancer to drop in the box in the waiting area.

**Items can be donated through Saturday, December 11th**

Thank you for your support!!
