April Newsletter

Updated: Apr 6, 2019

Spring is here! We haven't seen much change in the weather yet, but we are full steam ahead towards our big Show Day! I would like to thank you all for your cooperation with the inclement weather cancellations and the substitute teachers due to the spread of illnesses. We have a couple more days to make up, so please check below for that information. We have a bunch of upcoming events that we would love for your kids to attend. Make sure you check it all out! The dancers are so excited for these last couple months of dance classes, especially the end-of-year Showcases. They are working so hard to get their routines stage-ready and we are already SO proud of them!! I am always very grateful for your dedication to the studio and I, for one, cannot wait to see everyone hit the stage June 8th! Please email me directly with any questions or concerns - Miss Erica Kamensky, Owner

Showcase Handbook

In this handy document, you will find all you need to know about the stage rehearsal and showcase days. Show day comes with a lot of information to get out and this is our best attempt to clarify what is required in terms of commitments and responsibility in order to make the Showcases a wonderful everyone involved.

If this is your first Showcase with DEBE, this is a MUST-READ! And if you are a veteran, it's a great refresher!


Performance Fee & Showcase Tickets

Each family will pay a performance fee to participate in the showcase. The performance fee includes 5 tickets and a digital video of all DEBE performances. This fee is due May 1st.

Additionally, you can purchase a Showcase shirt that will have the logo and cast on it. Anyone that is participating in the Finale, must wear a Showcase shirt and black shorts.

Additional Showcase tickets will be sold at the studio beginning May 1st and at the door during stage rehearsal and showcase day!
