October 2016 Newsletter


What a great first month we’ve had!


Congratulations to our TWO draw winners for September!

Phillip Solowan and Solanna MacDonald EACH won FREE Birthday (or anytime) Dance Parties at Sheridan Dance Academy!  Way to go guys!  And way to go parents for getting your entries into our draws!  Keep up the great work!


October is our SDA Family Pride Month!

We’ll be kicking off our Stomp the Yard Event with yard signs for families to take home, as well as our Shout if from the Rooftops Event ~ where our dance families are encouraged to post photos and videos on social media, telling the world how proud they are of the Dance Family we have built around us, and what it means to your kids! Post a Facebook, or Google Review online about how much you love us, at SDA, and you’ll instantly be entered into our October draw!  Already done a facebook review this season? No problem – we’ll go back as far as September 1 and count ALL reviews in our draw.  Feel free to post on both FB and Google, and be entered TWICE! 

Dancers will be given Poster Sheets to take home this week!  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!
