A Note from the Director...

October was a FABULOUS month at HSSOD! We had so many fun things going on every week. Here are some of the highlights:

  • We loved sharing our classes during Observation Week! It was so nice to see so many family members supporting our dancers.
  • SDC & HSD4ME had two terrific performances: at the “Night Out” event and at our Fall Festival!
  • We had terrific performances at Open Dance Night and THRILLER! Congratulations to an amazing cast who was a delight to work with on this project. Your performances at the Haunted Farm were wonderful! Thanks again to Faith Dickson for doing an awesome job reconstructing this piece!
  • Huge thanks to everyone who came out to support the Fall Festival! We raised over $13,000 to support SDC this year! We are so thankful to all of the parents who worked so hard to make this event so wonderful!
November is a month where lots of rehearsals and planning are happening for some great December events. We can’t wait to celebrate the Meg’s Smile Foundation with our Holiday Cabaret performances, the parades, and our Nutcracker sharing by Springs Ballet Company.

I sincerely hope and pray that your family has a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are so grateful to be a special part of your child’s life. Happy Thanksgiving!
Love, Marilyn

“The Children Who Had Roses For Noses.”

“The Children Who Had Roses For Noses.” by Richard Dobbs and Marilyn Chappell

PS... I have to share some exciting news…

My dear friend Richard Dobbs (gifted artist) and I have been working on a Children’s book entitled “The Children Who Had Roses For Noses.” I wrote the book when I was pregnant with Skylar. My husband Chris and I had been told that she might have Downs Syndrom, but we made the choice not to do further testing and risk losing Skylar. When she was born perfectly healthy, we were thrilled but had a whole new sense of compassion for parents having children with special needs. I told Richard about the book and that I wondered if he would be interested in illustrating it. He shared with me that he has a sister with Downs Syndrom and would love to be a part of this.

The story is really about celebrating our uniqueness and unconditional love. You can check out our book at Lulu.com. We hope you like it!

Help a Dancer!
IAMHSSOD20

Do you have a way that you could support someone in our dance family? We can share acts of kindness in a variety of ways. During what has been a very difficult time for many families, here are some ways you might be able to help….

  • Offer to donate gently used shoes or leotards to share with others.
  • Pay it forward; offer to pay for a costume or one month’s tuition for a struggling family.
  • Organize a carpool to lesson the burden of transportation.
  • Volunteer your services (props construction, sewing, graphic design work, working at events) to help dancers organizing events.
  • Pledge to say something positive to every dancer you come in contact with for a whole week. Who knows, it just might become a habit and kindness is contagious!
  • Be creative! We’re open to any suggestions!

We work hard to reach out to our community, but we also want to take care of each other! Thanks for your help!
