•  Leotard Tights Pants Shirt

    *Convertible tights have a small hole on the bottom of the foot that can be pulled up over the ankle, converting them to footless tights (with the seam landing at the ankle). These items are needed for their performance, can be purchased by me, and all proceeds go to the dance dept.


    Dance in First Grade - Distance Learning

    Due to the Corona Virus, dance classes will be held on line via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings at 9:30am for anyone who wants to join me. However, you will need to download the app called Remind to your phone to recieve the class meeting code for these classes. Steps for joining Remind are:

    1. Download the free app to your phone.

    2. Join a class using the code @783c32e

    3. It will send me a message and I will respond with a "Welcome" back. If you don't recieve that welcome message then something went wrong. Give it about 12hours before you try again. 

    Once you do that, I will automatically send you the meeting codes on Friday each week for the next week. If for some reason you are not able to join me don't worry, the class will be posted in the afternoon by 2:00 on that same day. When that is done all you will need to do is click on the link to recieve the video. Classes will begin the week of April 6th. 


    Should you need immediate assistance,  my "Office Hours" will be 1:00 - 2:00 Monday thru Friday. Otherwise feel free to email me at anytime and I will answer as soon as I am able within a 24 hour window.

    Below is a task sheet I would like completed. 


    First/Second Semester

      In First grade, we will be learning about Kiddie Jazz/Musical Theatre all in a 50 min time period 3 days per week! At the end of the semester, they will do a dance on stage (in costume) which will serve as their assessment for what they’ve learned in my class. Mark your calendars because that date is; Friday, May 17th 7:00pm at West Port High School. This will also serve as their final grade for the semester.


    Proper dress is a large part of your child’s grade. Please help them to remember their dance days. You can find them on the MSA website. Just go to the DANCE tab, then to the Semester Dance, and you will find my class schedule on the Information page. During the school day your child will be required to wear the following attire:



    1. Leotard with tights and skirt, sweatpants, capri, jazz pants, yoga pants, basketball shorts, etc.
    2. Spandex style spaghetti strap shirt with above mentioned forms of pants. No jeans! (Stay away from Skorts, the shorts are too short by themselves)



    I would recommend that girls do option number 2 so that going to the bathroom is easier for them.



    Athletic style shorts/pants (with an elastic waist) or sweatpants plus any style shirt – No Jeans (this includes jean shorts with elastic waist)


    Below you will find the grade rubric for proper Dance attire.

    0 infractions                 E per 9 week period

    1-3 infractions             S per 9 week period

    4 or more infractions   N per 9 week period
