Please read through it’s entirety and if any questions arise please email us. Here we go… happy reading:

  1. Make sure you are labelling all dance shoes. This way we avoid losing or accidentally swapping shoes with another student.
  2. The studio space is for everyone. Please respect it by putting garbage away, cleaning up after spills, washing cups used in the kitchen etc. and being conscientious and considerate of all others visiting the studio.
  3. Competition forms for those students interested in doing a solo/duet/trio or small group will be going out next week, September 19th to 22nd. They will also be available at the front desk; set on the top right corner in a red folder. They are due no later than FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH, 2016. There is a mail slot on the front door if the studio is closed.  This option is meant for those ready to go competitive, if you have any questions regarding this, please email Miss Genevieve, mhspa.dance@gmail.comRehearsal schedules for these students will be posted in the beginning of October.

MHSPA 2016/17 SCHEDULE & PICTURE INFORMATION

After tapping into some crazy organizational, puzzle piecing skills, breathing through many trials and tribulations, we have reached the first draft of our 2016-17 dance schedule with success!  Throughout the course of the summer, this will be subject to change depending on enrolment, but our goal is to keep things as close to this current schedule as possible.

This year we decided to change up the format on how we label our classes.  Instead of separating things by JR/INT/SR and further splitting those classes, we have simplified it to the discipline and a number.  Example – Jazz 1, Jazz 2, Jazz 3 etc…

Students who have submitted pre-registration forms will be receiving an email by Monday, June 6th to list which classes you should be registering for to help you map things out before coming to register.

Registration

June 7th & 8th 4-7pm ~ Tiny/Mini Bopper Students Only

June 9th 4-7pm ~ Classes in a discipline labelled 1 or 2  Only

June 14th 4-7pm ~ Classes in a discipline labelled 1 – 2 – 3 – 4  Only

June 15th 4-7pm ~ Classes in a discipline labelled 3-4-5-6-7  Only

June 16th 4-7pm ~ Open Registration for new students

After pre-registration is complete, if you have not officially registered, your spot will no longer be held and we will open it up for new students.  If you are unable to make it during our pre-registration dates, please email Miss Whitney at mhspa.office@gmail.com to make arrangements.

Pictures – The gallery is up and ready for viewing and ordering.  An email will be sent asap with detail on how to gain access, if you did not receive that email by June 10th please let us know.

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and we look forward to seeing you at registration!
