Studio News

The 2019 Picture Schedule is now available!

Hello!  The snow is melting, I’ve heard birds singing in the morning, and that means SPRING IS COMING!  The arrival of spring also means that it is a busy time at SDS.  We are finishing up recital routines, our competition teams are at the height of their competition season, and dance recital pictures are coming!

Our studio is using Tom Lindstrom as our photographer; he will supply order forms the week of pictures.  Recital photographs will be taken at the studio, and I have included a schedule for your review.  Please be sure to note the hairstyle for your child’s class.
Dancers in a combination class (i.e. – tap & jazz), come in your TAP COSTUME FIRST.  A photo of your chid’s costume can be found on the parent portal, so you know which one to come to the studio in first 😉

Light makeup should be worn for pictures.  We suggest eyeshadow, blush, a light lipstick or gloss, and mascara for photos (recital makeup will be heavier, like stage makeup).  Eyeshadow should be in a coordination color to your dancer’s costume.  Boys do not need to wear makeup.             

Picture Week Is Coming!

Tom Lindstrom will be photographing our dance students the week of April 29-May 2.  Pictures take place in Studio B at the Dance Shoppe.  The picture schedule will be posted by the end of March, but usually your dancer is scheduled close to their normal class time.  We have found that this makes the picture time most convenient for parents <3  Tom will bring photo envelopes to the studio with him, and payment of pictures is due at the time photographs are taken.  #saycheese #smileforthecamera

Happy Holidays!

Thank you all that participated in our Toys For Tots program, and nursing home programs!  Through our efforts, we brought over 550 toys to our community!  Great job 🙂  Plus, the residents of Guardian Angels, in Hibbing, and Heritage Manor, in Chisholm, enjoyed our dancers talents earlier this week.  A special thanks to Mr. Will Seykora, and the Northern Lights Choir for providing vocal entertainment at 2 of our 3 events.  We truly enjoy being able to share our talented kids with the community!

Do You Need Dress Code Items?

Our online store give you the convenience of ordering your class dress code items such as shoes, tights and leos right from home. It’s built right into the parent portal to make life even easier!

IMPORTANT: You have to be logged into the Parent Portal to access the store. Then look for the Online Store icon from your dashboard.

The front page of the store shows a few featured items.

You can navigate the store from the menu bar.

Each category shows a list of items, and you can click an item to get details and make a purchase.

 

For those of you who have ordered online in the past, you were using a service called Costume Manager. We loved costume manager, but that service is no longer available, so we created a shiny new store just for you.

As always, if you have any questions or need help, let us know and we will take good care of you!
