BRING A FRIEND WEEK: MONDAY APRIL 1st– SUNDAY APRIL 7th
Bring A Friend Invite_Waiver 2019
L.A.D.A. has created one week out of the dance season where students in most classes ages 6 & Up may bring one friend to class. This is a great opportunity for our students to perform in front of others before the upcoming dance recital. Bring A Friend Week will take place during the week of Monday April 1st – Sunday April 7th during regular class time. Friend invitations will be given to each class and are required to be signed off by the friend’s parent/guardian and returned on the day of the event for the friend to participate in classes. All friends must be the ages 6 & Up and should be around the same age of the class. IMPORTANT NOTE: Bring a Friend Week does NOT include Preschool Combo, BTJ Combo, Competitive Dance Teams, Aerial/Acro and Adult Classes.
BRING A STUFFY TOY WEEK: MONDAY APRIL 1st– SUNDAY APRIL 7th
New this year, in lieu of Bring a Friend week we have created a special class for our Preschool and BTJ Combo students. These classes are encouraged to “Bring a Stuffy Toy” to class during the week of Monday April 1st – Sunday April 7th who they will dance with and perform in front of. Please make sure your stuffy is an appropriate size for dancing.
RECITAL TICKET SALES 2019
Tickets for our 2019 Dance Recital will go on sale beginning Saturday March 16th at 12:00 P.M. sharp through www.centennialconcerthall.com. Please note that there is a 10-ticket maximum when purchasing your tickets. There are THREE different shows so please click the link below to check which show your child will be performing in. Recital Show Schedule Master 2019
IMPORTANT NOTE: The assignment of classes to recital show is based first and foremost to accommodate children in multiple classes and siblings to be part of only one show. Due to the volume of students in multiple classes it is impossible to accommodate everyone therefore there will be some families who will have to attend more than one show. Please remember that we do not want to have a four-hour dance recital and the safety of all children is our number one priority. If we were to combine every sibling and student who is in multiple classes, we would have a significantly longer show and hundreds of kids back stage which would make it unsafe. Please note that in order to compensate those parents who must attend more than one show 2 complimentary tickets will be given upon purchasing tickets to your first show. The complimentary tickets will only be offered to PARENTS. If you are parents who must attend two or three shows you will be notified by mail and/or email with the information and password to redeem your complimentary tickets. Please contact the front desk before purchasing any tickets to make sure you have received your password. Please note that complimentary tickets will NOT be provided to any CDT, Ladies Jazz or Dad’s Hip Hop who are performing the same routine in more than one show unless there is a conflict with another class/student/ sibling in another show.
Recital Volunteers Wanted! We need parents or students over the age of 16 to assist as class chaperones and/or security back stage at our year end recital. Class chaperones will assist teachers and guide students’ back stage. Class chaperones will have the opportunity to watch the group perform on stage through the wings. If you are interested in helping, please sign up at the front desk. All Volunteers will be awarded a $10.00 Retail Coupon.

Holiday Presentation Schedule (Click Here)
All holiday presentations will take place at L.A Dance Academy beginning Saturday December 15th –Friday December 21st. Presentations are 30 minutes in length and will replace the students’ regular class. Please refer to your December Newsletter for exact presentation time. Students will only need to be in class for 30 minutes NOT 60 minutes as this is a special presentation. Due to limited space in the studio we are inviting only 2 guests per student (and siblings). This presentation is for parents to view what their child has been learning for the past couple of months and also gives parents an opportunity to speak with the child’s instructor after the presentation is complete. All other family members will have their opportunity to see students at the year end Recital in May 2019.
All students should dress in their regular dance attire, with proper shoes and hair tied back.
For the safety of all students and families, it is our school policy that all guests must remove their outdoor shoes prior to entering the carpeted area and studios. Please feel free to bring slippers to wear while in studios. As this is a special occasion, everyone is welcome to bring cameras and video recorders.
Costume/ Halloween Dress Up Week: Wednesday Oct. 24th – Tuesday Oct. 30th
We invite all students to dress up in your favorite recital dance costume or in your Halloween costume.
Parents please ensure your child’s costume is appropriate for dance and does not limit their movement in class.
For the safety of our students we ask parents to NOT bring in candy or treats for the class.
LADA will hand out peanut free candy during that week.
No classes on Halloween day.
Please check your October Newsletter for more details.
