DANCE CLASSES Grades K-8 and DANCE TEAM!

Hello Doral Families,
 
Apologies it has taken me a while to get this information out to you all, I've been wrapping up my graduate program with UNC last semester and am pleased to say I graduated with my Masters in Dance Education on December 8th! Now I can focus on building our dance program.
 
I would like to offer dance twice a week after school for all grades, and will be dividing the students up by age. Classes will begin January 16th and run through the end of the semester.
 
Junior Dance (grades K-4) will have dance technique classes (ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop) on Tuesdays 3:15 - 4:15pm and Dance Team Choreography will be taught on Thursdays 4:45-5:45pm.
 
Senior Dance (grades 5-8) will have dance technique classes (ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop) on Tuesdays 4:15 - 5:45pm and Dance Team Choreography will be taught on Thursdays 3:15-4:45pm.
 
Tuesday classes will be offered to all students, regardless of joining dance team or not. Students who wish to be on Dance Team however, will be required to take the Tuesday technique classes. Our students will need to train in order to build strong technique in dance, so if students are already taking technique classes after school at a separate dance studio, they will not be required to take the Tuesday technique classes in order to perform.
 
Costs - 
Tuesday's technique class $12/class - or $40/month - or $175/season (Jan-May)
Dance Team Registration *fee $100 + any additional costs for Uniforms & Costumes

If your student is interested in dancing, please have them see me or their homeroom teacher for paperwork. Those joining the Dance Team will have a student/parent commitment contract to sign as well. Students will need to be signed up by the end January in order to be a part of the dance team, those interested in taking technique classes only can drop into classes on Tuesdays or sign up monthly as well. 
 
Please let me know if you have questions, or would like to speak with me further about dance at Doral. 
 
Thank you, 
~ Ms. Emily
