Dance News!

Can you believe it’s the last week of regularly scheduled classes? Everyone has been hard at work preparing for the Cinderella Ballet (Fri., May 5), Spring Recital (Sat., May 6), and the Spring Repertory Gala Performance (Sat., May 13). Tickets for the first two events are available at the Braden Box Office, and Repertory tickets are on sale now from individual Repertory Company dancers or the Front Desk (bonus: Repertory tickets include a Gala dessert buffet).

If you weren’t at the April Parent Guild meeting last week, you missed some important end-of-year news and reminders. Here’s your catch-up:

17854678_1385172498192629_4850816212206689540_o•This Thursday, April 20, is our Prep, Freeze, Cook fundraiser from noon to 7:00. TCSD will receive 20% of ALL sales that day, no flier needed! Please spread the word to family and friends, and come pick up a delicious meal to cook now or freeze for later—they’re perfect for busy Tech Week evenings! Gluten-free and paleo items available as well.

•Are you a Schnuck’s shopper? If you or someone you know shops there for groceries, be sure to pick up a free eScrip card at the studio and follow the online directions to register your card and select Twin Cities School of Dance as your organization. Then, each time you shop, the studio will earn 3% of the sales.(You can choose up to three nonprofit organizations, if you wish, but the 3% will then be split among them.) The cards are good for all Schnuck’s stores in several states.

•Subway Rewards cards are still available at the Front Desk for $5. Coupons and offers are good through June 30.

•NEW EVENT: ALL-SCHOOL DANCE PARTY!!! To mark the end of a great dance year and to give a huge thanks to all our studio families, TCSD is hosting a FREE dance party at Miller Park Pavilion on Saturday, May 13, after the Repertory Gala performance. The party is scheduled from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Although the party is free, we do require that you RSVP by May 6 so you and your family can be on the list. Please tell the Front Desk or contact the studio if you plan to attend and let us know how many are in your family group. And if you are able to donate a bag of chips or popcorn, or a 2-liter of soda, donations will be much appreciated.

It’s Spring Performance Season at TCSD!
