Welcome to all the new families that have joined Fusion Dance Company, we are so happy to have you be a part of our wonderful studio. We hope you are settling in and enjoying classes and making new friends. If you haven’t ordered your recital costume yet, please see Miss Helen at the desk to have your child measured and get those costumes ordered. All costumes are $85.00, if in a combo class they are $75.00. Attached to this email will be recital packet, and shoes and tights list. Shoes and tights will be needed by picture week, May 15th. Please don’t wait until the last minute to order or shop as things go on backorder because every studio is having pictures/recitals at this time. There is vital information in these attachments so please save them. We will also post to the website, and closed group. Recital is June 10th and mandatory rehearsals are June 7th, and 8th at Palm Harbor University.
As you can see we have a busy month. We have 12 dancers traveling along with Miss Diana to Tallahassee for the Ballet intensive and auditioning for the FSU Dance intensive.
Our Dance Team has its showcase on Sunday Feb 12th at Eidenburg Hall at Innisbrook at 3:00. You can purchase tickets for $10.00 to see all of our competition dances, One Stop Tee-shirts will be at the event selling tee-shirts, car decals and any other Fusion spirit items you may wish to buy. This is a fundraiser for our dance team and a chance for you to come out and cheer on our girls without having to attend a weekend long dance competition. They have been working hard since July on these dances and are very excited to perform at this event!
Feb 18th our dance team will be competing at our first competition at the Straz Center in Tampa at 8 am. You are welcome to attend the free event and cheer on our girls. On Feb 19th there is a workshop and everyone is invited to attend at the Doubletree Westshore Airport. Registration is at 7:45 and the cost is 135.00 There will be classes in Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Ballet, and Musical Theatre. Please see Helen at the desk if you are interested in attending.
Please try and attend all classes as we will be beginning recital choreography. Attendance is crucial to your child’s success in our production at the end of the year. If two consecutive absences happen a private lesson will be needed with the teacher upon the teacher’s discretion. It is unfair to the children who are there each week to have to keep going back to teach things they learned the week before. If your child is sick or injured it is important for them to at least come and sit and take notes, unless they are contagious. Please call or email the studio and let us know if your child will be absent or will just be observing.
We are still accepting new students if you have referrals. Depending on their arrival we may still be able to get them in our show or they may still attend classes and learn the dances if they find they cannot participate. Your word of mouth is the best form of advertisement and you will be given credits to your account for your referrals.
Happy Birthday to:

Wow lots of February Birthdays!!
We look forward to a great month! A lot of germs going around with the weather changing. Please give those kids vitamins, and a sweater or jacket. We would like to ask when picking up your kids at night if you’re not coming in please call the desk for us to send them out we do not want children or teens waiting outside for rides, for their safety. There are a lot of clothes in our lost and found please ask the kids to go through it because we will be donating everything not claimed to Goodwill at the end of February, as the box is overfilled.
Please also note we have an online parent portal for tuition, and fees. All you have to do is go to the website www.fusiondance.co to the registration page and click on register here, or ask Helen to send you the link. We can also sign you up for auto pay. Please remember tuition is due on the first of each month, and is late on the 2nd. It is important to keep your child’s account up to date. We pay extra to have the parent portal and accept credit cards for your convenience and assurance of on time payments. Please keep in mind that we are a small business and have rent and payroll due on the 1st of each month, and depend on your on-time payments to meet these demands. If your tuition isn’t paid by the 2nd there will be a $20.00 late fee added to your account. We will give you 1 grace period, if you normally pay on time. If for any reason you need to withdraw from our Fusion Family we do need a 30 day written notice given, as you initialed in the registration form. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
