November 2016 Newsletter

November 2016 Newsletter


Thank you to everyone who took part in our SDA Family Pride Month!

Please finish up your posters (information below) and bring them back into the studio during the first week of November.

Dancers have been given Poster Sheets (if you need another, or didn’t get one ask at the desk).  Encourage your child to make a colourful poster using whatever creative ideas they come up with!  Anything they love about dance, dancing with us, dancing with their friends – whatever!  Once they’ve finished designing their poster they then collect signatures and small donations from friends and family.  In November (date to be announced) we will call all posters back to Sheridan Dance Academy .  Posters will be displayed on the walls and THREE prizes will be given out!

1)      Most signatures gathered (front or back of poster, whatever you child prefers)

2)      Most fundraised monies (this money is going towards new mats for the studio!)

3)      Most beautiful/creative/amazing poster – voted on by the kids

The winners will each be given an SDA gift certificate to purchase ANYTHING they choose!  New Dance Duffle Bag?! SDA Hoodie!?  SDA Jacket?!   Whatever their heart desires!  


Thank you to everyone who brought a friend to Dance Class!  The week was an absolute success!


Sheridan Dance Academy SWAG orders are due soon, if you’re planning for Christmas!  Hoodies, jackets and pants are available. 


Show Stoppers Musical Theatre Presents:
All Aboard the Polar Express

Tickets are on sale now!  We are not permitted to have a concession, but will be doing presales on yummy treats like baking, chocolates, candies, hot chocolate, coffee and water.  When purchasing your tickets at SDA ask about “Ticket Extras” – we also have options for photos with Santa, and special surprise gifts!

Please remember, if you are IN the production there are some additional rehearsals coming up – please double check at the desk to ensure you know what times and where.  We’re are closing in on show time!!


Polar Express Day Camp!

Would your child LOVE to attend our Christmas Production, but you don’t know if you can make it happen?  We have just the event for you!  Starting with 2 hours of Polar Express themed games and events, we will escort our campers to the Evergreen Theatre, where they will get a photo with Santa, take a backstage tour of the theatre, and get settled in, as a group to watch the show!  Click HERE to learn more, and register!


Searching out the perfect Christmas gift for your little dancer?  We have a few new options available! 

1)       Give the gift of Ballet!  Have the whole package sitting under the tree:  New Ballet Shoes, Tights, Bodysuit, and classes for the month of January.  Every little girl’s dream!  Click HERE to learn more and register.

2)       A SOLO?!?!?!?!  We have brainstormed a whole NEW idea for our SDA kids!  Would your dancer just DIE to have his/her very own solo to perform onstage in the year end performance?  We have several SDA Faculty available to make that dream a reality!  Keep your eyes peeled for more details, and if you’re keen, and want to get on this ASAP to have the “package” ready for Christmas morning, shoot us an email and we’ll express you the information. 


December 5th – 8th = The most fun classes of the year!

There are a couple of scheduling changes here – please double check your child’s class time.  We are combining a few classes to encourage a super fun, festive experience for the kids!  All classes will learn a short Christmas Routine, and we encourage ALL parents to come in for the last 5 minutes of class to take photos and videos!
