Recital Fees

There is a $15 recital fee for EACH DANCER. If you have two or more dancers at the studio the "family rate" is $25. On our original calendar, the recital fee was due with December tuition. HOWEVER, now that the recital is earlier than the 10th, we need it paid NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 18th. The recital fee is so that your family and friends don't have to pay admission to get into the show. Thank you for getting it paid on time.





Dress Rehearsals

Below is the dress rehearsal schedule. PLEASE look closely for your time and plan on arriving at least 10 minutes before your dancer is to be on stage. They need to be completely ready to dance. Hair and make-up, tights and shoes....EVERYTHING. :) Those who have danced with us before know that we run right on schedule.
NOTE THURSDAY SCHEDULED HAS CHANGED SINCE THE E-MAIL BECAUSE OF TEACHER CONFLICTS!!!

Registration for 2011-2012

BREAKING NEWS!!
We have decided to do registration throughout the summer to avoid the long lines and 2 crazy nights this fall!  Watch for the exact date, but it will be this JUNE when registration will be open.  Please be sure to follow the registration process as outlined to be sure your daughter/son gets into the desired class.

1.  Fill out registration form and sign dancer agreement.
2.  Pay registration fee and turn in forms.
3.  Select class your dancer will attend. 

Filling out the form will not guarantee them a spot in the class until the fee has been paid.  The forms will be available in the next few weeks here on the blog and at the studio locations.  We are working out the class schedule now and will have that for you soon.  Please pass the word to all your friends and perspective dancers that we have changed the registration this year and to be on the look out for the first day of registration, in June. 

Thanks and we look forward to dancing with you!

Hello All!

Just a reminder that our Spring Break at Infinity is March 31st-April 6th!

Dance For Life Results

We are so proud of our dancers and their efforts. They killed it! We now know exactly what we need to work on.

Tinys- We are listing Tinys first because they stole the show!! Tinys took FIRST PLACE in both of their dances and also won the OVERALL NOVICE division! Woo Hoo Tinys! They literally could not have done any better.

Minis- Minis took first in Hip Hop and Second in Jazz, only missing first place by 5 points. The judges loved how difficult the dance was for that age group and commented on their good technique. They thought that Work it Girl was super fun and loved their outfit and hair.

Smalls- Smalls took second in Hip Hop, Third in their modern (Don't Stop Believin') and Sixth in their Jazz (Dancing Queen). They loved the lollipop costume and energy. We think Don't Stop Believing was performed the best we've ever seen it!! The Smalls team is ready to work hard in ballet to improve each of their dances!

Juniors- Took FIRST and SECOND in Hip Hop for Body Rock and Zombie Club. They took Fifth for Jazz (Push Push), Third for lyrical Feel My Love. Juniors also took FIRST with Body Rock in the Intermediate Division and THIRD for Zombie Club. TWO PLACES IN THE OVERALL STANDINGS!! They took first and third out of 47 dances in their division. The judges loved the Body Rock costumes! They said they were super fun and bright and filled up the stage....thanks for ALL of your hard work Pam to get these put together!! They loved the Zombie concept-very unique and it was performed very well. For Feel My Love they said that they could tell you love doing the dance and it was a beautiful performance. VERY WELL DONE!

Jazzerettes- Took Second in Hip Hop for Hoodies, Second in Jazz for Hot Like Wow and both of these dances were only 3 points away from first!!! Steal the Show took a close fourth as the top 4 places were all within 3 points!! (First and second place tied.) Arms took third and Smile took fourth. Rockin' the USA took Fourth as well. Hoodies took SECOND in the overall ADVANCED division which was 42 numbers!! When they announced second place, the judge said, "I LOVED that dance". :)

So: Overall we are so THRILLED with the results. We took FIRST in the Novice division, FIRST in the Intermediate division and SECOND in the Advanced division against some amazing, tough, competition.

We are really proud of our girls and appreciate their hard work. We are also really cracking down and focusing our attention on ballet over the next 6 weeks. We have talked to each team and explained that for them to improve their technique, they need to improve their ballet!! We are so excited, they are excited and here we go!

Happy Valentines Day

HELLO ALL
I hope everyone is enjoying the month of February so far! I know it has been hard for a few of you this year not being able to watch your dancer in class and I really want your experience at IDS to be great for you and your dancers. So that being said I would like to invite all parents wanting to observe classes to GO FOR IT
the month of February. This is IDS's Happy Valentines Gift to you and a Thank You for sharing your dancer with us! If classes go well and teachers are fine then we will consider making this permanent. HOWEVER if it is to difficult to keep the focus on the students then we will have to end it in March :( Please understand we want the very best for the students. HAPPY VALENTINES!

2. January 24th is Shelley Drill Team Talent Show at 6pm and IDS has been a asked to attend.

3. I need all juniors to bring back their brown dresses so we can sew ribbon on the bottom of them ASAP!

5. Minis leg warmers are still not here from target when I ordered them Nov.11th.....the company said "they are not in warehouse, so they are waiting to be shipped" whatever that means :( So please continue to have your dancer wear her socks she got at winter recital. Thanks

This is something we did at the studio I grew up at and it was always a BLAST! ALL JAZZERETTES need to be there!
