Hey just a few reminders…..
1.      Your fees are due in full today.  Please get them in asap!
2.      Costumes are coming in and will be sent home as they are paid for.  Just a heads up some of them will not be here until Monday so I promise they will get to you in time.  I stress enough for everyone so don’t worry about them.
3.      Practices are mandatory all of them… I keep getting people asking if their kid/kids can miss for multiple reasons and it is killing me!  It is really hard to clean dances, when we don’t have everyone there.  The extra practices are crucial and at this point there is no reason to send a replacement, I feel like I have caused a problem allowing for fill ins in the beginning of the year.. The reason that works at first is it takes us a long time to make formations and we are not working on choreography, at this point we are working on cleaning the routines the person who actually will be performing has to be the one actually practicing.  These extra practices count as an absence so please remember our absence policy… If you miss more than 3x from January thru May you will sit out a performance.  Dream team you only have 4 absences from September Thru May and Advanced girls you have 3 from September thru May.  NO exceptions.  If you are absent the week before a competition you may be spaced out of that particular dance.  Use your absences wisely.  If you are at tryouts, sick,  school functions etc, this is what those 3 absences are for.     When parents ask me towards the end of the year why this dance wins and this one doesn’t I can almost always point back to how many absences are happening in those particular classes.  Those with very few win and those with a ton don’t.  Keep that in mind. 
4.      The girls need to come to class ready to dance in the right clothes with their foot undies or hip hop shoes and ready to work, not ready for social hour or snack time.  Please talk to them about this.  Please send them to the Providence Hall practices in all black.
5.      Pictures will be April 26th thru May 3rd.  I will get a schedule done and let you know when the team girls will be doing pictures They will come in groups and do al l their pictures on the same day (hopefully).  They will be Either Mon, Thurs, Fri or Saturday.

Sorry this sounds so grumpy but we are at crunch time where I have a lot of stress with costumes and making sure all dances are ready to compete and I need 100% from everyone!  Thank you I do love teaching all of your children so much and look forward to showing all that they have been working on. 
If you have questions or concerns please email me at tiffanydanceco06@gmail.com

Tiffany Dance Co January 2017 Newsletter
Welcome back to dance I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a nice Holliday break.  Thank you so much for all the gifts given to each of us teachers and student teacher we appreciate your thoughtfulness so much.  Thank you so much for your patience at the recital as well, it was a very snowy night and I know it took extra effort to get there.  Thank you also for your help with the sub for Santa, I appreciate your help so much and feel so lucky to have the opportunity to pass out the gifts to the kids in Mexico and couldn’t do it without the help of all of you!  Just a few things this month….
1.      We do not have any days off… I know there are a few school holidays and Martin Luther King day etc, but we will hold all classes this month and actually until spring break in April we will hold all classes regardless of days off for school. 
2.      Please make sure to pick up your children on time and have them wait inside… until you are there.  I don’t like them out in the dark by themselves J
3.      Remember tuition is due the first lesson of the month, and please send your kids to dance in dance clothes.  Never street clothes or pajama’s and with their hair pulled up. 
4.      We are collecting quite the lost and found if you would like to check for any missing items please do so every few months I send the stuff to the D.I.
Competition students just a few reminders… If you are in the production you have a few mandatory practices coming up…. The one this Saturday is very important as we will space the rest of the finale, please please have a stand in if you cannot make it!  Otherwise there will not be a spot in that part of the dance for you.  Here is the schedule for that…. 1/7 9 am to 12pm, 1/21 2pm to 5pm, 2/4 9am to 12pm, 2/18 2pm to 5pm (mini team in production will come to this practice on the 18th from 2 to 3:30pm) 3/4 9am to 12pm All competition students will need to come to this practice as we will space out all routines.  Mini team only if you are in production do you come on March 4th.  Just to clarify mini team in production comes only to the last two practices EVERYONE else in production comes to all practices and those competition students not in production come on March 4th only.

Mini team in production here is a reminder of the schedule for their Friday night practices.  January 13th and 27th 5:30 to 6:15, February 10th and 24th 5:30 to 6:15.  There was a practice scheduled for March 10th but we will need to move that to March 3rd because of the competition on the 11th.    I am finalizing all costumes this weekend so bills will be coming home in the next week.  You will have to have all fees paid in full before March 3rd.  Costumes will not go home until they are paid for J You can pay in installments one this month one in February and the last one in March, or all at once… whatever is best for you.  Please please watch your absences!!  Remember if you have too many you sit out a performance.  If you are in advanced or dream team this counts for tumbling and ballet as well.  I would double check if I were you and see if you need to make up any of those classes!!  It is crunch time and we need every girl in every class!!  Thank you for allowing us to teach your children we love each of them!  If you have questions or concerns please email me at tiffanydanceco06@gmail.com.

Competition Team make up instructions

Step 1. apply the gold eyeshadow over the entire eyelid.


Step 2. apply the gold glitter lightly dabbing across the eyelid mostly along the bone not so heavy on the lid closer to the eyelashes..  

Step 3.  Take your eyeliner and line the inside part of the bottom part of your eye all the way across.
Step 4. attach your false eyelashes the longer side should be towards the outside of your eye.  Use good eyelash glue (glue did not come in your kit).  We no longer use the kind with diamonds.
Step 5. apply eyeliner to the top lid, pull your eye from the side to make it easier to put on
Line the entire eye
making a slight "wing"
and voila... doesn't she look beautiful... Thank you Kylie for letting us use your CUTE face If needed you can use a wipie to wipe of any excess glitter.WE were able to do this eyemake in just a few minutes so it really is not hard I tried to keep it fairly simple since the hair do is not so simply.  


This picture was in case we did not get our eyeliner or glitter.... we have received the eyeliner but are still waiting on the glitter... Just do it without the glitter if it does not come or if you have your own gold glitter use that... sorry for the inconvenience.

Lips are the same as last year.... Use RED lipstick or a RED lip stain works great too first then apply the red glitter to your lips.  The red lipstick is not included in your kit but the red glitter is.  A tip is to use the gel you can get at Sally's for a dollar to apply the glitter to your lips, it may adhere right to your lipstick as well.
Base and blush are optional I do not require it.  


Thank you!!

2015/16 Competition team hairstyle

Here is the link for the hairstyle for this year.  We are not using the hair piece like I had originally said.. sorry I kept ordering them and they all looked really crappy.  So I think this will be easier anyway.  I would just like to do one thing slightly different then this video... make the bow a little more on the top of their head instead of to the side.  So the bow should be at the top right corner of your head/bun not to the side.  Also put the bun slightly higher not so far back on the head.  I will post a picture if needed.

The link is:
https://www.facebook.com/sweetheartshair/videos/421458671349639/

so supplies needed are a sock bun doughnut thing, clear elastics, one sturdy regular elastic, tons of bobby pins and Hair spray... Good luck!  It really isn't hard.
