Good news we had at least a cup full of snow. Bad news….studio is closed today January 17, 2018. Classes should resume tomorrow.
Due to the impending blizzard which promises tens of millimeters of snow the studio will be closed for classes today. Assuming no roaming mastodons appear classes will resume January 4, 2018.
You may have noticed the DOT is currently experimenting with Bugs Bunny’s notion of digging through to China via the very large hole now occupying the south bound lane of Hardscrabble Road. So if you are a) travelling south on Hardscrabble or b) turning right off Clemson Road onto Hardscrabble Road and c) do not possess a flying car (and if you do i need to be picked up at 7 and is there an in flight meal?) you will have to get creative to get to the dance studio until the 27th (if you believe the sign they put up….myself Im planning on a filled in hole by Christmas). If you think this is fun just wait until the full blown road widening project gets started….
Do you have layers like an onion? Then you might be perfect as our Shrek. Perhaps you fancy yourself as an animated cookie….good news…we need that too.
Shrek auditions, Saturday, September 23. Ages 3 – 11 12:30 – 1:15 pm, Ages 12 and up, 12:15 – 2:00 pm. Performances the weekend of February 16-18, 2018. If cast, a $45 production fee will be due.
Gonna be wet and windy and wet some more. Stay inside away from flying cows, small annoying dogs and lost girls. See you Tuesday assuming Irma continues her flight from Jose.
Due to the eclipse the studio will be closed. Classes will resume August 22nd assuming the sun comes back out.
