Hello All,

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. The 2018-2019 Dance Registration has started.  Please contact spiritsrtsdance@yahoo.ca if you would like a registration form.


We are moving the registration deadline up to August 31, 2018. Registration forms in by August 31, will be eligible to win $200.00 credit toward your 2018-2019 dance fees. Please make every effort to have your registration in by this date, to enable us to work on scheduling. Another change to note is that we are not asking for any early deposit like we have done in the past, just your registration form in please.

Please mail (Box 1101, Spirit River Ab, T0H 3G0) or email (spiritartsdance@yahoo.ca ) by August 31.


After September 5th, any new registrations will have a $50.00 late fee applied.



We know that it is hard to register for classes when there is no set schedule yet. We suggest that you register for all the dance classes that you would like to take (your "wish" list). When the draft schedule comes out and you see how it fits into your schedule, then you can change classes, drop classes or add classes. We have tried both ways of scheduling, setting a schedule before registration and making the schedule around the registrations we receive. We have found that this way, having you register your wish list first, is the easiest way to build a schedule for our studio.


We will be having our AGM on September 12, 2018 @7:00pm, upstairs in the Dance Studio at the Rycroft Ag Centre. Please mark your calendars.


A few reminders about dance classes this year:


Lyrical and Contemporary classes are available for ages 8 and up. Note that Lyrical has a Ballet co-requisite, which means the dancers must be taking Ballet to take Lyrical.


Creative Movement: We are offering 2, 10 week sessions. Session One starts the week of September 24 , and Session Two starts the week of January 7. You can register for the first session or both sessions. The classes are open to dancers that are 4 and 5 years old. These Creative Movement Classes will not attend festivals, nor year end recital. They will be scheduled for picture night. This is a super option for those young dancers who are eager to try dance class for the first time without making a full year commitment. Each session will cost $85.00, payable prior to each session starting.


Intro to Dance: For dancers 5 and 6 years old. This class will be a combination of Jazz and Tap. It is a great option for 5 and 6 year old dancers looking for variety in one class. The class will run the full year, participate in Festivals and the Year End Recital. The instructor will decide which dance they will perform in Festivals. Note that the dancers will have to have both Jazz and Tap shoes and bring them both to all classes.


Senior Jazz Class will have a Ballet co-requisite. In the past it has been an unwritten understanding, but now it is a co-requisite. All of our teachers stress the importance of Ballet for all dance basics at all levels and would like all of our dancers to be in ballet class.


Dance Fee : A one hour class will be $45.00/month and a 45 minute class will be $35.00/month. For the seven months this works out to be $315.00/1 hour dance class and $245.00/ 45 minute class for class fees. Creative Movement is $85.00 per session.

 So now that things are into full swing it's time for me to put another shout out for more volunteers for casino. The dates are Jan. 15 & 16th. There are still lots of positions available starting at 7 or 8pm on the Sunday and 8 or 10pm on Monday.

I will also start contacting you to fill out volunteer forms if you are in a key position (general manager, banker, cashier, count room supervisor).
