Greetings from the dance studio!  We have had a busy semester and have been preparing for our fall dance concert on Wednesday, Dec. 10th.  Our “Tis the Season” concert is presented as part of our annual ARTStravaganza event and will feature the middle and high school dance elective classes as well as some solos and duets from the middle and high school Golden Girl teams.  ARTStravaganza is a week committed to our middle school performing arts.  The week of events includes the following: Tuesday, Dec. 9th the Theatre Department presents “School House Rock, Jr.”; Wednesday, Dec. 10th “Tis the Season” Dance Concert; Thursday, Dec. 11th Chorus and Band Holiday Concert.  All events are held in the VCMS gymatorium and begin at 6:00 pm with doors opening at 5:30 pm.   

Please remember that dancers have a mandatory rehearsal on Monday, Dec. 8th from 3:00 until 6:00 pm.  Dancers should report no later than 5:15 pm for the concert on Wednesday, Dec. 10th.  Participation in the rehearsal and the performance are part of the dancer’s performance evaluation grade and semester exam.  Please email me or send in a note if you have an unforeseen conflict.  Dancers are expected to remain for the entire event.  Parents should sign out their child from the chaperone at the conclusion of the concert. 

Our concert costume will build on the dance class uniform (solid black leotard and solid black shorts) with tan jazz shoes or ballet slippers.   Hair is specific to each class but all should have bangs secured off of the face.  We will be using stage lighting so the dancers will need some makeup.  Stage makeup for this event should be neutral colors with a darker lipstick (preferably wine).   

Tickets for ARTStravaganza are on sale in The Villages Charter Middle School front office.  A pass for the entire week of events may be purchased or tickets for single nights are available.  The cost for the pass is $10.00 for Adults, $6.00 for Students, and Children 5 and under are free.  The cost for a single event ticket is $5.00 for Adults, $3.00 for Students, and Children 5 and under are free.  Tickets and passes will also be available at the door. 

The rehearsal and performance are a great way for parents to receive PI hours!  I will need parents to chaperone on the afternoon of the rehearsal, Monday, Dec. 9th from 3:00 until 6:00 pm, and the evening of the show, Wednesday, Dec. 10th from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm.   If you would like to volunteer, please email me at

Our class uniform for ladies is: black leotard or biketard, black cover up (shorts, skirt, dance/yoga pants or dance capris), tan jazz shoes (I suggest Bloch NeoFlex or Pulse), ballet slippers (I suggest Bloch Synchrony), hair elastics to secure hair (items to make a bun for performances).

Our class uniform for men is a black t-shirt or tank, black bottoms (shorts or pants), black ballet slippers and tan jazz shoes.

If you are still looking for dancewear items, I suggest you search online for the dancewear provider nearest you.  Dancer's Outlet and Dance - N- Stuff stores located in Ocala that have store hours friendly to working parents.
