If you still need to order your dancer's uniform, please do so as soon as possible. We want to make sure that everyone receives their uniforms in time for our Winter Show.
Our Halloween show is at Life21 Church next Saturday - October 29th at noon. This is for dancers in PreK-3rd grade. I just want to give you a heads up, this is a very laid back performance. Parents will come in, and stand/sit around the front of the room and watch three short dances. After the dances, we will have some fun Halloween activites and treats. And then you are free to leave :)
Our Winter Show date has been confirmed. This will take place at the Northfield Middle School on Saturday, January 7th at 1:30pm.We have decided to switch to the Middle School for a number of reasons, one being that it is more convenient and there isn't a chance of multiple events occuring at the same time. I will send out more information regarding this show at a later date.
**Highlighted Dancer of the Week**
Our Highlighted Dancer of the Week (from last week) is. . . . . Hyein C. from our Mini Kix class!
Hyein has only been dancing with JFK for only one month! She started soon after her arrival from South Korea to attend school in Northfield for the school year. Hyein is a very hard worker and does not give up when faced with a challenge. She is very encouraging of her teammates, and always has the biggest smile on while dancing. We are thrilled to have Hyein dancing with us this season!!
MEA Break - No Dance
There will be no Thursday classes next week due to MEA Break. Just a reminder - we do not hold classes any time there is no school.
Buddy Night was a huge success! We had double the amount of dancers in almost every class. How awesome is that??? I would like to send out a personal thank you card to all of our buddies that came to try out classes - if your dancer brought a buddy (or buddies) could you shoot me a quick email with their names? I did write down the majority of them, but I did miss a few. Also - if the buddy that your dancer brought to class registers for classes, your dancer will get a FREE JFK TSHIRT!
Halloween Performance - PreK-3rd Grade
Our Halloween Performance is on Saturday, October 29th at noon. Please remember this is meant to be a fun, laid back show and our dancers have only been working on these dances for two weeks. After they show you their dances, we will have some treats and some fun Halloween activities.
Each class will wear something different for their dance:
Tiny Kix (dancing to 10 Little Monsters) - wear any "monster" costume
Wee Petites (dancing to The Skeleton Dance) - wear all black - we will add white tape on their clothing to make them look like skeletons
Wee Kix (dancing to "Nightmare") - they can wear anything scary :)
Next week is Buddy Week! All dancers are able to invite as many friends as they would like to come try out our classes! Please keep in mind that we are trying to get our classes to grow, so it is best to invite friends that would seriously consider joining. Also - please only bring friends in their age group - if you know of someone wanting to dance that is older or younger, they can try out that age-appropriate class.
Our PreK-3rd graders are well into their Halloween dances for our Halloween performance on Saturday, October 29th! This is going to be a laid back, short performance in our regular practice area at Life21 Church. Parents will come watch the three routines, and then we will have treats and play some fun Halloween games. Each of our classes will be wearing something different for the show:
Tiny Kix (dancing to 10 Little Monsters), wear any "monster" costume
Wee Petites (dancing to The Skeleton Dance), wear all black - we will add white tape on their clothing to make them look like skeletons :)
Wee Kix (dancing to "Nightmare"), I told them they could wear anything scary!
Parent Get Together
As of right now we don't have anyone signed up for this :( If you are planning on signing up, please let me know ASAP so I don't cancel it. We have to have at least 10 people signed up in order to hold this. I will have some yummy snacks there as well.
Years in Just For Kix
Starting this year, dancers will receive special awards for being in Just For Kix for a number of years. When your dancer reaches 5 years in JFK, she will receive a certificate. When your dancer reaches 10 years, she will receive a medal. When your dancer reaches 15 years, she will receive a plaque! These awards are going to be presented to dancers at Spring Show, however, I need your help! If you could please email me the year that your dancer began dancing with JFK that would be greatly appreciated! I am going to create a spreadsheet for myself to keep track of the years, so we can do this every year!
**Highlighted Dancer of the Week**
Our Highlighted Dancer of the Week is. . . . . BRYNLEY W. from our Tiny Kix class!
This is Brynley's first year dancing with Just For Kix, however, you would never be able to tell by watching her! She is a natural! Brynley has great listening ears and pays close attention to all of the movements I teach in class. Awesome job, Brynley!
