Hi Dance-N-Magic Families!
A BIG THANK YOU to all of the parents who participated (or will participate) with their children during Parent Participation Week March 25-31. We applaud you for taking the time out of your busy day to support your students. To continue to support your student, we came up with these:
Four Fabulous ways to Support your Student's learning process!

  • Praise the Positive. The best way to help your children in the learning process is to catch them doing well, and to praise them for it. Learning is a process and when you focus on the negative, they will internalize it and feel bad about themselves. Instead over praise them for all of the positive things they are doing, it will go a lot further to encourage them and they will end up doing more positive things.
  • Sweat the Small Stuff. Stuff like focusing in class, trying their best even when they don't get it perfect, and listening to the teacher may seem small, but it's those small steps that add up to big learning strides. When you see your child doing those things, let them know how proud you are of them.
  • Relaxing for Readiness. Your energy can and will rub off on your child. When you are relaxed, they will be too. This can help your child be ready to focus and learn.
  • Have Fun at Home! Play around with dance and music at home. Even if it's just listening to music around the house. It's those open ended, non-structured play times that support the creative process. It will help build a brain wired for creative thinking and problem solving. Not only will this help with choreography and composition when they are older, it directly relates to skills needed in academics and job performance later in life.

Parent Participation Week! March 25-31
Parents are invited into the classroom to experience what your students experience! This is not a "watch" class, you will be dancing. So please bring movement clothing, dust off those dancing feet, and get ready to have fun with your child! Dance-N-Magic is always a no judgement zone, so don't worry about your experience or talent level, just come and have fun. At the end of each class, we will be going over your recital folders and handing out your recital costumes. We know some students may be traveling for their school's spring break. If you will be gone, please send us an email and we will hold on to your costume until you return.

Recital Info Now Available Online
Oh the papers!! Yes, I'm a parent too, and I know how papers can go here, then there, then who knows where? We have created a special individualized folder (for all of your papers) for each family that we will hand our with their costumes during Parent Participation Week March 25-31. In addition, as a convenience for you, we have posted all of the information online. (just in case) Click Here for Your Parent Information Page
