March Theme:  Love Never Fails  
Once again this month we’ll be talking to our dancers about love – both God’s love for us as well as how we can live out loving others every day.

March Tuition is now due:  Pay by March 10 to avoid the $15 late fee!

Calendar Notes:   NO ballet April 4-8

A Decade of Dance is Coming!!!    Be sure to join us for one of our Company’s productions of A Decade of Dance which will feature excerpts from Sleeping Beauty, Four Seasons and Tarantella as we celebrate our Company’s 10th anniversary.   This is a great way to support these dancers as they seek to use their abilities and talents to glorify God and to support our ballet school.  The young as well as the young at heart will enjoy this classic filled with beautiful dancing, music and colorful costumes. Be sure to invite your neighbors and friends!  Tickets may be purchased at the door or by going to

While you may be more familiar with Sleeping Beauty, you may not know that The Four Seasons, composed in 1723, is one of Baroque legend Vivaldi’s most famous works for the violin. It takes the audience on a journey through the changing seasons-the newness of spring, the passion of summer, the calmness of autumn and the chill of winter. Witness the power of our Creator brought to life through dance!  Tarantella is a lively ballet choreographed by George Balanchine in 1964 to American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk’s Grand Tarantelle, Op. 67, composed from 1858-1864. Balanchine turned an Italian folk dance based on a myth about spiders into a seven minute powerhouse of a ballet accompanied by tambourines.

A ticket is good for any one performance so you don’t have to decide now which performance to attend.  
Performances: April15 @ 7:30PM; April 16 @ 11:00AM; April 17 @ 3:00PM  
Perimeter Church Sanctuary; doors open 30 minutes prior to each performance

Recital Reminder:  With teachers working on recital dances, attendance in March and April is very important!  Moms, you will soon receive your recital volunteer assignment.  If you are unable to do what is requested, please find another mom to switch with you and let the ballet office know of the change.

Professional Pictures:   Friday, April 29 - 2:00-6:00 in the Upstairs Studio 
Keiko Guest will be here for individual photos of dancers in their recital costumes.  For those new to our school, Keiko is a well-known photographer with a ballet background.  She knows how to work with and pose even the youngest dancers.   The pictures you will receive are professional quality and will sure to become a keepsake.  And, Keiko has not increased her prices over the past 8 years! 
Sign-up for picture times will begin Monday, April 11.  

Mission Support:  By now many of you know that some of our Company dancers will be returning to Belarus this summer to conduct a dance intensive from June 10-20.   This is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to those who are attending a government run school.  But, this team could use your financial as well as prayer support.  If you would like to support them financially, go to and choose Belarus for online giving or drop a check, made payable to Perimeter Church and noted for Belarus mission trip, in the ballet deposit slot.  And again, this team would appreciate your prayer support as they seek to be salt and light to those they will work with and meet in Belarus.

SUMMER OPPORTUNITIES:  Registration begins April 15 with Early Bird Discounts till May 15

God’s Little Princess Camps -  June 13-17 and July 18-22

This is a sweet, creative and high energy camp for the youngest dancers, ages 3.5 – 9 (dancers currently in Creative Movement, PreBallet, Grade 1, and Grade 2, Ballet I).    Throughout the week, characteristics of God’s princess will come to life through the artistry of thematic dances, hands-on crafts, games and imaginative play.

Younger dancers attend daily from 9:30-12:30 and older dancers attend daily from 1:30-4:30.  
The 1:30-4:30 session of the July camp will be designed especially for Grade 2 and Ballet I dancers and will contain more dancing including some modern/jazz work.  Ballet I students who are interested in attending the Intermediate Intensive, need to contact the ballet office as teacher recommendation is needed.  The Intermediate Intensive requires more dance time, more structure and we want to be sure each dancer is appropriately placed.

Intermediate Intensive:  June 20-24  
This intensive is designed for our current dancers in Ballet II-A, and II-B and for those who are interested in learning more about dance who are 9 years old and above.  If your daughter is currently in Ballet I and is interested in attending this intensive, please contact the ballet office so we can talk with her teacher.  In addition to ballet classes, dancers will broaden their horizons with modern and jazz classes.  Meets daily from 9:00-3:00.   
 Advanced Intensive:   June 6-10  
Required for all Perimeter Ballet Apprentice I and II dancers, Company dancers and suggested for students currently in levels III-V.   Open to advanced and intermediate level dancers who have had at least one year of pointe work or who receive instructor’s recommendation.  The week will feature classes in technique, pointe, partnering, jazz, variations, and musical theater.  Dancers should arrive at 8:50.  The lunch hour will include a devotion and discussion time as we encourage students to seek, honor, and serve the Lord with their gifts and talents. Teachers will include those from Perimeter Academy of the Arts Ballet faculty as well as various guest teachers.  Meets daily from 9:00-5:00.
