COSTUMES FOR OUR END OF YEAR SHOW FOR SINGERS & DANCERS (Does not include Boogie Babies, Private & Semi-Private Voice Students or Actors)
Our end of year show for Singers and Dancers is a big production held at Mt. Horeb High School in May. Students are not required to participate, but participation is strongly encouraged. This is a great reward for 9 months of training! Please plan ahead! We will start measuring for costumes in late November. If your child will not be in the end of the year show please contact us so you do not get charged. Costume fees will show up on your Quarter 2 statement, but are not due until December 15th @ 8PM. Each class will need a costume. Prices range from $50-$55. (ex. If your child takes 1 dance class & 1 group voice class, he/she will need 2 costumes. Combo classes will only need 1 costume.) Costumes are ordered over Holiday Break. Only paid for costumes will be ordered. Thank you for understanding.
Remind is a text message alert system that we use to alert parents and students of class cancellation for any reason. If we need to cancel classes due to bad weather we will do our best to make that decision by 2PM. Please remember that we don’t close just because school was canceled. If you would like to sign up for the text message alerts please text “@fortes” to 81010.
PARENTS WATCH WEEK (ALL BUT BOOGIE BABIES)
December 12th through December 15th parents are welcome to come observe classes. We ask that Boogie Babies families wait until the end of Quarter 2 for the regular Watch Week. We will have chairs setup in the studios for you to sit and watch. You are free to come and go as you please throughout the class. All we ask is that you please remove your shoes before entering the studios!
NO DRESS CODE WEEK
Students can wear anything they want to class as long as it is safe to dance in during the week of December 19th! We hope they will be festive for the holidays
Pizza day works like this…. You will contact me in the office and let me know what day your student wants pizza and what kind of pizza. (Cheese or Pepperoni) Pizza will be delivered to the office and students who have signed up can come in before or after their class and get their pizza, juice box or water and a sweat treat that Miss Marin and I will bake. All orders need to be in by the deadline because pizza is ordered in advance!!!
When: January 16th through January 19th
Cost: $7; extra slice $2
Order Deadline: January 12th @ 8PM
**Pizza Day is being done as a fundraiser for the studio. Forte Studios is in need of new lights for shows here and for a new studio floor/mat.
QUARTER 3 TUITION
Quarter 3 tuition will be due on January 30th. We will not pull any payments from credit cards used online for quarter 1 or 2. You will have to go in and submit the payment or can drop a check off at the studio. Any payments not made in full by February 10th @ 8PM or without a payment arrangement will result in a $10 late fee. You will have one week to make this payment and then your child will be asked to sit out of class until paid in full. Please contact me (Ashley) with any questions.
