Rockettes Show Cancelled – Trip to NYC Still On

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

The Rockettes show was cancelled until 2015, which is very disappointing. Our plan is to run the bus if we can get enough participants. Many of those who were going to see the Rockettes have decided to go anyway and plan to get tickets for a different show or sightsee. Anyone is welcome to come with and the cost is $75 per person. Full refunds ($120) will be given to those who choose not to go to NYC and partial refunds ($45) will be given to those who do go.

Rockettes Trip To NYC

Monday, March 10th, 2014

As of the deadline the trip was sold out. There is a waiting list for additional tickets, but the bus has been filled to capacity. We appreciate everyone’s flexibility with trips like these as there is a fair amount of background work to ensure we have enough participants to make it feasible.

We will be planning another trip for a different show in the near future.

Today’s (Wednesday) Classes

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Open SignAll morning and evening classes will be held today. We realize that some school systems are closed and some are opening two hours late, but we need to be open do to the large number of snow days we have had this year. The parking lot is in good shape with the exception of the area directly in front of the studio. There was some slush there tonight which will probably turn to ice.
