Happy New Year Joyous Families!

We are excited for another Joyous year of dance and hope the kids are having fun with the process of learning and mastering their recital pieces so far.

Suntanning – Miss Kaitlyn is suntanning in Mexico this week, Miss Shyla Franko will be her replacement this evening!

The final week in January I will be suntanning in Antigua and will have Miss Kaitlyn as well as Miss Savannah, an instructor from Saskatoon covering my classes.

Dance Costumes – Measurements & Sizing Required

We will be choosing and ordering our dance recital costumes by mid-Feb!

Parents will be responsible for providing measurements (in Inches) and choosing a costume size for your dancer(s).  Choices and measurements are due via email by end of day Mon, Feb. 2nd.

See attached Measuring Guide and Sizing Chart for instructions.

Please take care measuring to assure the most comfortable fit for your child.  Parents will be responsible for any additional alteration fees.  Since the costumes are not custom made, there will be some costumes that require alterations. If you are in between two size choices, I suggest always choosing the larger size.  Altering a costume to fit smaller is a lot easier and more cost efficient then adding material or exchanging.  We will be ordering a lot of our costumes from the same supplier as last year and this company tends to fit slightly smaller.

February Break – There will be no classes during Feb break, the week of Feb. 16th

Dance Pictures & Recital


In the Spring, we will be offering professional group and individual pictures for our dancers as a keepsake for the year.  Any suggestions for photographers are welcomed.
We will hold a Recital Rehearsal and Dance Recital in Saskatoon in May.  We had a memorable show last year and almost sold out the venue in our first year!  DVD’s by Larry Jellison will be available for purchase.  Stay posted for dates and further details.

Questions about steps, choreography


Please encourage your child to ask if they have questions or need help reviewing any dance choreography, we are happy to help.

Enjoy the mild weather!
