11/11 Update

Happy Wednesday Dance Families, here is your weekly update:

COSTUMES!
It’s time to start organizing your costumes & rhinestoning! Rhinestone supplies are available in the Platinum Store & sample photos are below. Costumes & shoes are being handed out in class as they arrive & they need to be saved for performances & kept in a safe spot. Please take a moment to review the costume guidelines below & get ready to rhinestone:
Dress Code Reminder
Please review the class dress code here. If a dancer is not in dress code, they will be asked to leave and return in proper dress code – this includes ballet buns.

Extra Practice Schedule (Dec 5-6)
Mark your calendars for REQUIRED practice. We do our best to be convenient, but also take into consider productive days (no 8+ hour days), therefore many dancers will be coming two separate days.  This is included in your tuition and a great chance for the dancers to finish / polish routines!

Platinum Holiday Apparel Order: Nov 16 deadline
Our annual holiday apparel order is now available online – with new products & designs! A great chance to get some holiday shopping started.

Between Classes
We ask that dancers have a SMALL dance shoe bag (see example below) that they can bring to class with them with their required shoes for the night. We’d like to eliminate the time spent between classes in the locker room and make our classes more efficient.

Monthly Ballet Blog

Practice at Home
Just a reminder to have your dancer practice at home and review videos weekly to ensure they are coming to class prepared.

November Store Sale! – Nov 16 – 21
Support Small Business by shopping small at Platinum! Small Business WEEK is Nov 16-21 & it’s 20% storewide (excluding shoes). You can schedule a time with Miss Annie to shop, or if it’s slow – you can pop-in.


Holiday Skating Party “Reimagined”
Usually we would be reminding you of the date for our annual skating party at the Roller Garden, but instead – we will be hosting HoliDANCE Week at the studio (Dec 14-19) in all competition classes! Stay tuned for more details.
