MITCHELL SCHOOL OF DANCE
AFTER 7 GREAT YEARS IS CANCELLED
MITCHELL GYMNASTICS & School of Dance
MAY, 2019 ... Dance Parents,
It is with great sadness that we are writing this email. We have been struggling over the last couple of years with declining registration numbers while continuing to run the dance program here in Mitchell. We have 2 great dance instructors that we are pleased to have worked with for these past years, and a nice venue to hold classes, however, due to the cost of running this program and trying to keep the registration costs reasonable we are still not able to make this a viable program. We have lost money the last couple of years, and we understand the cost of doing business, however, it is not something that we want to continue to do.
We have decided to cancel the dance program as of the end of this year. We will not be holding registration this year at the end of the yearend show and wanted to give you this advance notice so you can register your dancers in another program in another centre. This is not something we have decided lightly - we have been stressing over this for a while now. We love having this program in town and appreciate the loyal dancers that have been with us.
We will be doing our yearend show this year as usual in conjunction with the gymnastics show on the Saturday, and then we will close the doors on our dance program. Our gymnastics program will continue to run as it always has and we welcome any dancers who would like to join our gymnastics program to please do so.
We want to take this opportunity to thank all the parents and dancers for their past support and to wish them all the best in their future dance adventures.
A very special thank you to Madi Sorsdahl who joined us this last couple of years and has been a great addition and instructor for our dancers, and to Allison Sykes who has been dancing with us from the start, for her assistance as our assistant dance instructor. Both these girls have instructed your children with grace and we thank them for their valued leadership and instruction.
If anyone wants to chat with me you are welcome to do so.
Thank you for your understanding and we wish everyone the best in the future, Michelle and Jen
