Update to January News

Dance Dates: There are no dance classes on January 31st.

Costumes: On last week’s newsletter, the pattern information was omitted from some of the copies. This is the info for the 10:00 costumes: McCalls 4867 view D (no tabs)

All costumes must be ready by the end of February. We will be wearing our costumes for the parade.

Recital: We have finally secured a date and place for our recital! We have secured the Scranton Cultural Center’s Shopland Hall for Sunday May 3rd.

I would like to thank Casey Welby for the great idea and Gretchen Welby for all of her help. I will have a very brief meeting on Saturday, January 24th during each class to discuss the recital and the role each parent plays. Please make every effort to attend. I will need to know by the end of January if any child will NOT participate in the recital.

* It is very important that your child attend all classes. We will be working very hard to make this recital a wonderful experience for you and your child. Attendance at class is a vital part of this experience. I want the children to be confident in their dances and that means 100% participation.

PLEASE NOTE: for the 10:00 class , the capes will be available starting saturday the 24th from Lynn Mooney. The cost is $25 due at the time of pick-up. There will be a sign up sheet on the bar for anyone who will need a shirt made also.Cost unknown at this time.

January News

Dance Dates:
We will have dance on all Saturdays in January.

February 7, 14 and 21.

Due to the recent deaths in my family which have forced me to miss class, I have postponed the recital. At this point, I am looking at the first 2 weeks in April for the recital. I will confirm the date as soon as I confirm the venue, which I hope will happen this week. All costumes must be finished by mid-February so we will be ready for the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Please See below for details.

10:00 class - Capes are being made by Lynn Mooney. Please see her for payment. Skirts are to be made by the individual dancer. Material can be purchased at Sew Smart Fabrics on N. Washington Ave. The pattern is available at JoAnn Fabrics, or ask other parents. Any parent that has a skirt they no longer need may bring it to dance and donate it or sell it to a beginner dance parent. Please remember you need to purchase two short sleeve Peter Pan collar shirts and send them to the embroiderer:
All Things Embroidered
5 Meadow Creek Lane
Glennmore, PA 19343

Please include a return envelope with postage paid. Each shirt will cost $5.00

This class will also need a white turtle neck shirt for the parade.

11:00 Class: All dresses will be made by Susan Becker. She will have invoices for each dancer within a week. She will take care of the embroidery as well.  

12:00 Class: Try on your purple dresses and report back to me ASAP!

All dancers need bubble socks and ghillies. {See Mrs. Murphy} All dancers also need black lollipop pants for under her costume.

Anyone wishing to order clothes, please print out an order form, circle your desired items and give it to Mrs. Murphy. No payment is necessary until we receive $150 of orders. We will then send them in with all payments. 

***During the next few months, please check here before leaving your house if the weather is questionable. I will have cancellations posted by 8:30 AM if not the night before.**
