A few select classes will open their enrollment again in January after our performance of the Nutcracker. If you know someone who is interested in enrolling, encourage them to contact me via phone or email as soon as possible!
DRESS UP DAYS
Students can wear their Halloween costumes or other dress up clothes to class this week!
On a personal note, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who emailed, brought flowers, wrote a note, prayed or said a kind word as I and my family dealt with the sudden loss of my husband's father. It was a difficult and emotional time that we are still sifting through, however, it was such a help that all of you at Ballet with Miss Rachel were both understanding and accommodating as we adjusted our class schedule during the week of this loss. I will more than likely have to miss one more day of classes as the memorial is not scheduled until later this month. However, our kids and our family are doing much better as we continue to move forward. What a gift each day is. I'm so thankful I get to spend my days teaching dance and running things at Ballet with Miss Rachel.
With heartfelt gratitude and love,
Rachel offers updates & insights to her ballet students and parents concerning all things dance related!
