Important Dance Department News!

Dear GCAA Dance Parents,

Happy New Year from the Dance Department.  We are thrilled to announce the dates for the Spring Dance Concert! The performance will take place at St. Louis University Theater in Xavier Hall on April 4th and 5th. Dress rehearsal will be Wednesday, April 3rd. The program will repeat two nights, and each class will have an opportunity to perform. The concert will be a full stage production with lights and costumes, featuring work from two professional dance companies, St. Louis’ own MADCO and Leverage Dance Theater. We are so excited to have a venue to properly showcase the talents and hard work of the dancers.

As you can imagine, producing a dance concert for two evenings is expensive. On Thursday, January 17th from 5:30pm – 7:30pm, we will host a potluck dinner at GCAA to help raise funds for the concert, costumes and residencies. We hope you will be able to join us. The price for attending is $5/adult and $3/student and child. The maximum cost per immediate family is $20. You may pay in advance or at the door. We are looking for volunteers to contribute food and drinks, and donations for a raffle. Detach the lower part with your reservation by Friday, January 11th, specifying if you will contribute. Please contact Mrs. Hassenstab at margaret.hassenstab@grandcenterartsacademy.org or (314) 533-1791 ext. 6704 with any questions.

 

Please check with your students this week, as this letter and potluck form will be sent home.  If you do not receive a copy of this letter and form this week, contact one of the dance teachers.  Further details will be sent regarding the dance concert very soon.

Thank you!
