Class Moms- Please forward this AND the attachment to your class. If anyone has questions, please have them call our office. Thanks!

Hello STAR Parents!

We are 14 weeks away from the recital!!! Your child is busy working with their teachers on choreography. It is VERY important that your child is at all the remaining classes AND that they are on time to class! The Tardy Fairy will be visiting a few times in the next few months and ONLY the children on time will get a special treat! This again is to encourage attendance and being on time to class as to not disrupt the flow of the educational experience each week.

The recital date is set!!! Our 70’s STAR Dance Party will be Saturday, June 1st at 5pm at The Straz Center, Downtown Tampa. Students will be required to be in their dressing rooms by 4:30pm.

Dress Rehearsal and Picture Day are held at DDA and will be in the evening on May 22 and 23rd. This is a MANDATORY rehearsal! If your child is not there, they will NOT be in the recital- sorry no exceptions.


Tickets for the show will be sold at DDA on May 17th and 18th. With over 300 families this can be a lengthy wait for tickets. So we have designed a VIP Package alternative(please see attached). If you buy a VIP Package you will have an ad professional designed for you for our recital program/yearbook, you may receive free items (see ads) and you will get to purchase your tickets and pick your seats early (see dates next to each package). Only 10 ads of each package are sold! Ads go on sale starting THIS Monday (2/18), they will sell out quick so don’t delay! ¬†Pictures and details you would like in your ad will be due to graphic designer by March 15th.

DDA’s Spring Break will be March 25- Easter. Please mark your calendars and note this may be different then your child’s school break. This is the ONLY closure left for this school year, all other holidays, we have class!

Bring a Friend Week aka Beach Week aka Summer Registration for New Families will be the week of April 1st. All students and friends come to class in beach wear and dance shoes. All children 6 or older may invite friends to class.

DDA will have special days to enroll in our Summer Camps or Classes before the public. We should have the schedule and those dates available by March 1st. We are happy to announce our Summer MUSICAL will be OZ this year! Camp for ages 6-8 and 9-up

We have very fun camps and classes to keep your children in shape and having a blast throughout the summer!

Costumes will begin being passed out in March. Please try on the costume immediately! It should fit VERY snug. Notify the office in 24hrs if there is an issue as no exchanges are allowed about 24 hrs.

As always, we are here for you! Please stop by the office with any questions you may have about our recital and preparation. We want this to be fun! And if all parents plan and prepare now, we will surely have a blast!!!
