It’s that time of year again, WDA friends and family: the annual Christmas party is fast approaching, along with the Weaverville Parade. Here’s what you need to know about both:
The Christmas Party is on Saturday, December 20 at 10:00 am in Moore Auditorium at Mars Hill University. Please arrive around 9:30 so your student can find his or her seat in the auditorium. They will be seated down the left side and some on the right toward the back; parents and others, please sit in the middle or in other areas where the dancers aren’t seated. Don’t worry, we’ll have someone make sure your dancer gets on stage at the right time. There are no special costumes for this performance; dancers should wear their favorite leotard and tights, or whatever the parents agreed to have them wear. This is an informal program, to help all the dancers feel comfortable on stage and to celebrate this beautiful time of year with everyone. It promises to be fun and festive, as always.
The Weaverville Christmas Parade is on Saturday, December 13 at 1:00 pm. We are number 18, and the parade starts at North Buncombe Middle. However, the parade committee asks that all students be on the float before we arrive at the school. Please meet at the large parking lot at Big Lots between 11:30 and 12:0. Look for our truck and trailer in the parking lot. We’ll load the students up there, and meet back there when the parade is over. Please dress in your favorite Christmas clothes, and be sure to dress for the weather. If it’s cold, bundle up!
A couple more important notes: If your child is going to be in the spring recital in May, please make sure you’ve paid your $25 costume deposit, which was due in November. This deposit is non-refundable, so please make sure your child is committed to being in the recital before paying. Thank you!
The studio will be closed from December 22-January 3 for the Christmas holiday. Happy holidays with love from all of us at WDA to you!
