Dear Parents and Students,

Happy New Year!!! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a great vacation.  Just a final reminder that all costume orders will be completed over the next week.  If anyone has not paid the November costume deposit of $40.00 for each class, costumes will not be ordered assuming that your child will not be participating in this year’s performance (unless other arrangements have been made). If this was overlooked for any reason, please contact us immediately so that we can make payment arrangements. Costumes orders must be finalized this week to ensure delivery for our June performance. Costume balances will be due in February and should not exceed the amount of $30.00 per costume. Exact balances will be emailed to you individually.

Gotta Dance will be CLOSED on Monday, January 17th in observation of Martin Luther King Day.

~IN THE EVENT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, we will email and post on social media if classes will be canceled.  Due to the varying public school snow day policies, we will be making our own decision whether or not to cancel classes due to inclement weather.  If your class is scheduled on a Saturday or you are unsure if classes are canceled, please call the number listed above. Like us on Facebook at KS Gotta Dance for the latest news and updates.

Covid Guidelines Update:

Many thanks to all our dancers and family members for your unwavering support as we continue to navigate our Covid policies and procedures.  *We have updated our policies and procedures to coincide with the MA Department of Education update (If a dancer or staff member tests positive, isolate at least 5 days from symptom onset and can return to classes after 5 days, returning on day 6, assuming the dancer has improvement in symptoms and has been without fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication). We will hopefully be able to revisit our mask policy as we enter the spring season as more of our dancers are eligible for the vaccine and infection rates decrease.  Your healthy behaviors, including staying home from classes if your dancer is not feeling well, Covid related or not, is appreciated this winter season.  Visit our website, https://ksgottadance.com/about/, or contact Heather with any questions or concerns.

Reminders:

- Dress Code:  Please be sure that all students attend dance classes in proper attire. Our dress code is listed on page 4 of your packet and is also available to view on our website under “studio policies”.

- Competition Team: Competition #2 entry fees are due on or before Saturday, January 8th.

- Newsletters will be emailed and posted on our website each month - http://ksgottadance.com/newsletter/
