November ULAS Update


Thank you to everyone who participated in our Spooky Saturday dance, it was a blast! We hope to see you there next year.

Parent watch night is scheduled for the week of December 12-14 - so for the last few minutes of class, our instructors will invite us to see how our children are progressing through their dances. This will also be costume hand out night, so bring your dance bag if you have one (we have ones to lend you). 

Also, please bring your refundable deposit, written to ULAS memo costumes, and we will return it to you when you bring back your costume. $100 per costume.

Finally, we’re selling black St. Basill’s Dance T-shirts and hoodies to raise funds for our competitions AND to advertise our school when we’re out and about. Click the link to go to our store to shop now. November 29 is the last day to place your orders, sooner is better. Thanks for participating!
