Thank you so much to our Perimeter Ballet and Perimeter Church families and friends for attending The Nutcracker Christmas production! We had the highest attendance ever for a Perimeter Ballet production!
Our theme for the year is “Do What It Says-Putting our Faith into Action.” We will begin January by discussing Philippians 4:6-7 on anxiety. February’s focus will be on forgiveness. March’s focus will be on humility, and we will conclude with “remaining in Christ” in April.
WINTER FLU & COLD ALERT
Although we place a high value on attendance, if your child is sick (has a fever or an obvious runny nose and/or cough) please keep them out of class until they are better. But do notify the office if your child will be absent.
Tuition payments are due the first week of each month for January – April.

MAY RECITAL DRESSES ARE COMING IN! We will be sending home recital dresses with your dancers over the next month. Please no playing in the dresses - keep the dress along with the headpiece in the garment bag until the recital so it stays neat and clean!
MAY RECITAL CHAPERONE DUTIES
Most of you will be asked to chaperone during a recital rehearsal or during the recital your child is not dancing in. The chaperone list will be sent out in March. If you have a situation where it would be difficult for you to chaperone, like you have a baby that is 8 months old or younger, you’ll be 7+ months pregnant come May, etc. please let us know SOON (by February 1) so we can take you off the chaperone list. To find out which recital night your dancer will be in, check the website under General Info - Ballet Recital.
PROFESSIONAL RECITAL PICTURES
Friday, April 27 – afternoon in 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 be a precious keepsake. And, Keiko has not increased her prices over the past 10 years! More details coming in March.
