Spotlight Dancer- Natalie De Jesus- 10 Year Student

Natalie is 13 years old and has been dancing at 5678 since she was 3 years old! Outside of dance, Natalie is involved in soccer, baseball, track, and softball. Natalie loves dance because it makes her feel happy and free. The best part of her experience so far with 5678 has been making the Fierce Fleet Performance Team and being able to participate in the Disneyland Parade! Mandy and Jess are two of her favorite teachers because they make class fun and she loves their choreography. Natalie’s all-time favorite dance has been Spiderman, and her favorite recital theme was On Broadway because it was her 5th year and she got to dance with her dad in the Daddy Daughter dance. Natalie feels 5678 has benefitted her life by helping her become more outgoing and social. In the future, Natalie hopes to become a dance teacher and maybe someday own her own dance studio!

 

Spotlight Dancer- Layla Correa- 10 Year Student

Layla is 12 years old and has been dancing at 5678 for 10 years! Outside of dance, she loves to travel and cook for her family. Layla’s reason for dance is because she loves it and how it challenges her and helps her to relax. Her best part of her experience with 5678 has been meeting all her friends and teachers. One of Layla’s favorite teachers is Jess because she has challenged her, and she has learned so much from her. Layla’s all-time favorite dance was “Thank You for Being a Friend” and her favorite recital theme has been “A Moment in Time” because it was the studio’s 25th anniversary! Layla believes 5678 has benefitted her life because it has helped her to listen to directions and to be able to work with a team. In the future, Layla wants to become an anthropologist or a lawyer.

 

Lobby Rules

Parents- please remind your children that there are no food or drinks allowed inside the studio. Snacks get very messy very quickly. If you need to send a snack with your dancer, please have them eat outside, where there are trash cans for throwing away wrappers. The bathroom trash cans are not for food disposal. (If there is inclement weather outside, we have no problem with them eating inside, so long as they are respectful of the lobby space.) Thank you!

Donate a Coat or Jacket

On December 6th, 5678 Dance Studio’s Performing Group, “Fierce Fleet” will be performing at Mark Twain Junior High School. Fierce Fleet will not only be performing for the school, but will also be donating items to the students, such as jackets, gloves, and scarves. If you would like to donate any new or slightly used items, please bring them to the dance studio and drop it off at the front desk. We appreciate your help and so will the students at Mark Twain Junior High School.  The last day to donate is December 5th!

 

Specialty Recital Dances

One of the highlights of our Annual Dance Recital is our Specialty Dances.  There will be 35 spaces per dance, per show.  Registration will begin on Tuesday, November 5th at 10am online. Last year these dances filled up in less than 45 minutes, so please know what show and style you need to register for prior to 10am! If you are unsure of the correct show for you, please refer to your student’s current schedule in the Parent Portal (class names will state the show your child is in).

 

Please note that due to the nature of this year’s recital theme, the order of the Recital has already been set.  Some dancers may only have 1-2 dances to change before or after the specialty dance.  Please look at the recital order online before deciding which specialty dance your dancer will participate in.

Dancers MUST be in a Level 1 class or higher.  No pre-level dancers can participate.  Make sure you sign up for the show that your child is already in!  Dancers can only participate in one of the specialty dances.

 

Please keep in mind that upon registration, you will need to pay 50% of the tuition. The total tuition per couple is $140. If you have two children dancing, it is still $140 per dancer. A deposit of $70 is due upon registration and the balance of $70 is due by February 1st.  The 50% deposit is non-refundable and if it’s not paid within 3 days of registration, your dancer will be dropped.   Dancers’ costumes must be ordered through www.5678dancemodesto.com by December 6th. Costumes are $70 plus tax and shipping. If you do not order your costume by December 6th, you will not be allowed to participate in the Specialty Dance and will lose your 50% deposit.

 

Recital Costume Sizing

Dancers have already been measured in their dance classes. These measurements are listed on their costume paperwork that was handed out in October. There is also a "rec size" (recommended size) listed. Please note this is only a recommendation. You make the final decision in what size you order. The most important measurement is the Girth. Please consider, most younger dancers will grow before June. When ordering your costume, there is an attached size chart for that costume. Please keep in mind that I am ordering from three different costume catalogs, each with different size charts.  It is possible for your child to be a different size in different costumes due to it being from a different catalog.

 

Costume sizes chosen by you are FINAL. There are no returns, exchanges, or refunds on any costumes purchased. If you purchase a costume and then drop, you will be contacted when the costume has arrived to come pick up.  If you do not pick up the costume by July 1, 2020, it will be donated. If you need assistance, please feel free to ask.

 

Recital Costumes

All costumes for the 2020 Dance Performance will need to be ordered through the 5678 Dance Studio website.  Each class will be assigned a specific costume. Your costume paperwork was issued the week of October 14th. If you have not received costume paperwork for any of your dancer’s classes, please come to the front desk to pick it up. This paperwork has your child’s measurements, recommended size, and information on how to order the costume.  Recital Costume orders opened on Friday, October 18th.  You MUST order by December 6th or you will not have a costume and cannot participate in recital. Costume prices are as follows –

 

Pre-Level & Level I Dancers -     $60-$65 plus tax

Level II & Level III Dancers -      $65-$70 plus tax

Level IV and above -                 $70-$75 plus tax

If your dancer will not be participating in the June 2020 Dance Recital, please let us know by contacting the front desk via email info@5678dancemodesto.com , phone (209) 523-5678, or in person.  This way the faculty know and can plan accordingly.  If you dancer is not doing recital, they may continue to take classes for the season.
