Spring Newsletter & Year End Performance

Hello CAD Families,

As we head into the month of May, we are looking forward to our year end performance, competitive season wrap up & 2021-2022 season!
Performance & Examination Success
We would like to congratulate all of the dancers that have participated in the Coastal Festival, as well as their ISTD Modern & Tap Examinations. Our dancers have received many overall awards so far, and we wish them good luck with the remaining competitive season.
Year End Performance & Performers Package
Our dancers and teachers are working hard to prepare for the year end performance! This year’s “Broadway” themed performance will be an excellent way for our dancers to show off their hard work, and to be inspired by watching themselves and their peers perform. The performance weekend will remain June 5th and 6th and will take place at one of our local theatres. Each class will be given a timeslot to be filmed, (schedule and more details will be released closer to the date). At this time, we will begin to collect the “Performers Package” fee. 
This will be $45 for families with one student attending the school, and $60 for any families with 2 or more students attending the school. This package will include your link to the performance, (with the ability to download and save the link for future viewing), an individual photo in their costume, as well as a group photo with their classmates on stage. You may be via cash, cheque or e-transfer (to info@coastdance.com).
Year End Performance Costumes
Costumes have been purchased for each class and we are in the process of emailing you with the details and cost. We are doing our very best to keep this as minimal as possible while striving to purchase items that can be worn again. Costumes will be sent home closer to the performance date.
Scholarship Opportunities 
Both the Baris Charitable Foundation & Sunshine Coast Dance Society are offering scholarship opportunities.  
Baris Charitable Foundations:
This year, they will be awarding $500 scholarships to two lucky recipients. This scholarship is open to students in Grade 10-12. The deadline to enter is June 30th, 2021, contact barisfoundation@gmail.com if you have any questions or require the application details.  
Sunshine Coast Dance Society:

The application and audition information was forwarded earlier this week, please email us if you would like the forms resent to you. If you have any questions, please be guided to the Sunshine Coast Dance Society website (click here). The deadline for submissions is June 1st and the auditions will be held at the Coast Academy on June 27th.
May & June Fees
This is a great opportunity to acknowledge that the monthly fees are averaged for the entire year based on the number of classes you are registered for. While we have fewer classes in the months of December, March and June, the payment amount will remain the same for each month, and payments will be due for both May and June.
