15th Annual Holiday Cabaret

Costumes that kids helped us decorate for Holiday Cabaret!

Congratulations to all of our dancers, volunteers, and supporters for helping us raise $10,111 for the Meg's Smile Foundation through Holiday Cabaret.

With your help, we will create lots of smiles for some really brave kids.

Thanks to all for a terrific team effort!

Holly Springs Christmas Parade Information

We can’t wait until Saturday, December 13th to participate in the Holly Springs Christmas Parade! Dancers who ordered sweatshirts can expect them from their teacher the first week in December.

  • Remember, arrive at 3rd Street (the street beside Wendy’s) by 9:45am.
  • You should be wearing your red HSSOD sweatshirt, white turtleneck, black leggings, tennis shoes, high ponytail with a white ribbon, and white gloves.
  • Class Moms/Dads should arrive no later than 9:30!

We will have a carpool loop set up with volunteers who facilitate the drop off of your child. Children will be walked to their class Moms by one of our volunteers. Parents should proceed downtown to park. Please make sure that your child has an idea of where you will be standing during the parade. Dancers love to know where their fans will be! Preschool aged dancers will need to go through the carpool loop as well and unload their wagons. Remember, decorate your wagon with a “presents” theme since you all make up that part of our sled. The most decorated wagon will receive free tuition in January!

After the parade, you may pick up your child in the Town Hall parking lot (not the dance studio). Please make sure that you speak to the class Mom to let them know that you are leaving. Please help us by being prompt to pick up your child. We are looking forward to a fun event!

There will be no classes at the studio on Saturday, December 13th.

Announcements
“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!

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!
