Flowery Branch, GA 30542 (678) 654-8362 [email protected] August 2013 Newsletter CDA Staff: Owner: Amanda Simmons Director of Operations: Dee Simmons Administrative Assistant: Regina Eifler Director of Dance: Emily Wilbanks Teachers: Carly Reid Marilyn Hazelrigs Karissa Kracht Welcome to the Academy Parents and Dancers, We are pleased that you will be joining us for the first season at Claudia’s Dance Academy. This will be a year for all involved; students, parents, teachers, and administrators to grow, learn, DANCE and succeed together. Claudia’s Dance Academy's monthly newsletter will include general information about the academy, important dates such as performances and rehearsals as well as fun facts and tidbits about the art of dance. As an academy, we believe it is important to have structure and standards for our dancer’s and teachers. It is necessary that the rules of the Academy be followed to ensure growth as a dancer. Our dress code is designed to create unity and discipline, as well as to create an incentive for students to attain the next level of achievement. All dancers are expected to adhere to the dress code. Please refer to the handbook and review the discipline process when a student violates the dress code. How to class: Ballet Bun It is a long-standing tradition to see ballerinas with their hair in a secure and neat bun, but there is more than just tradition to this elegant hairstyle. The most basic purpose of the bun is to keep hair from whipping the face during turns. In addition, ballet class requires that students focus on different aspects of their developing technique and therefore cannot be distracted by loose hair falling down or getting in their face. Please join your child in her ballet class during the week of 9/1-9/7 to learn how to make a proper bun.
