Dear GCDA Parents,
As we bid adieu to January 2024, we can't help but express our immense joy and pride in the fantastic start we've had at Gulf Coast Dance Alliance (GCDA). The energy in the studio has been infectious, and the dedication from both dancers and parents has set the stage for an extraordinary year. As we gear up for the recital, here are a few key updates and actions that will help us make this season unforgettable:
1. Check Your Parent Portal: Take a moment to log in and ensure your payments are up to date, especially for costumes and the recital fee. Your cooperation ensures a smooth and seamless preparation for the upcoming events.
2. Costume Care: When costumes are sent home, it's crucial to store them properly. Proper care guarantees that your dancers will look their best on stage. If you have any questions about costume care, feel free to reach out to us for guidance.
3. Save the Date: Picture Days - April 17th-19th: Mark your calendars for Picture Days with Todd Stacey, scheduled for April 17th-19th. These moments captured are precious memories, so make sure your dancer is ready to shine in front of the camera!
4. Stay Informed via Email: Keep an eye on your emails for crucial details about Picture Day and other important messages leading up to the recital. Communication is key to a successful and stress-free experience.
5. Support Recital Preparation: Consistency is crucial at this point in the year. Instructors are diving into recital dances, and we don't want anyone falling behind. Your attendance and dedication are essential to ensuring a spectacular showcase of what your dancers have learned throughout the year.
GCDA Company Shines: We want to celebrate the outstanding performances by our GCDA Company at the VIP Dance Competition and Force Dance Tour in January and February. The dedication and support demonstrated by these dancers highlight the true spirit of teamwork in dance. Your dancers truly lift each other up, creating a supportive and inspiring environment.
Joffrey Auditions - February 24th: We're thrilled to announce that Joffrey Auditions are taking place in our studio on February 24th. This incredible opportunity is open to ALL dancers aged 8 and above. It's not just an audition; it's a chance for growth and experience in a professional setting. Register on the Joffrey website and feel free to email us for more information.
Stay Connected with GCDA: Please stay up to date with your emails and keep an eye on the bulletin in the studio. If you haven't already, download the GCDA app, available for both Apple and Android devices. It's a convenient way to access your Parent Portal, ensuring you stay on top of classes and account information.
Thank you for being an integral part of the GCDA family. Your enthusiasm and support contribute significantly to the success and joy of our dance community. Here's to a season filled with dance, growth, and unforgettable memories!
