Peter Pan Schedule

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for bearing with me this past weekend.  Thanks to those who were able to brave the rain/floods, and hopefully everyone else will get caught up next rehearsal.  We made great progress on the first Neverland scene!
It has been brought to my attention that some folks are seeing the dates/times differently within the rehearsal schedule I originally sent out.  I believe this is because people are viewing it on their phones, and the formatting is affected; since it was an attached Word document formatted into a table, this is creating glitches when you open it up on your phone to view, depending on your operating system, and dates/times may look off.
If everyone could please print out the schedule or view on a computer and refer to that (perhaps adding the dates/times into your phone’s calendar by hand) I think we’ll all be on the same page. Mary Ruth has printed and posted the schedule for the rest of Oct and Nov at the studio as well. I have attached it again for those who may no longer have that email.
Let me know if you have questions.  Thanks again, and remember:   Next weekend there is NO Peter Pan rehearsal due to the dance convention being held at the studio.
Have a great week!
Melanie

Studio will remain closed for the remainder of the week. Saturday the competing company will have technique followed by rehearsal.

The studio will remain closed for the rest of the week for regular classes.

The competing company WILL have company technique Saturday morning, followed by rehearsal.

Peter Pan rehearsal WILL be held.

We will add one week of classes at the end of the year to make up for this week.

Thank you.

I hope everyone is recovering from this catastrophic event. I know some families have been affected more than others.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Ms. Debra
