For those PARENTS new to the school:  We ask that only the dads of our dancers march with us. Dads are to wear the same as our boy dancers: black slacks, dark turtle neck and a traditional Irish sweater. Our dads are in charge of security, bathrooms runs and coat removal.

****VERY IMPORTANT:  Siblings not involved in the school are not permitted to walk along with us.

As always, email your teacher with questions. We look forward to a great practice and a fun time at the parades!!!

Coyle School Costume:  If your daughter needs a costume for the parades, please check our Facebook page designated just for selling school dresses.  If you are not a member of this page, please contact me via email and I will send you an invitation to join.  If you cannot find a dress, contact the dressmaker directly.  She is also making Beginner Jumpers.  Her name is Maria Aspite and her email is aspite75@gmail.com.  Please so not wait to contact her.  She will need time to make the dress before St Patrick’s Day and we are not her only client.

January Payment – Invoice have been sent and a late fee will be added if checks are not received by Saturday, February 4.  ​Checks can be made payable to Coyle School of Irish Dance.  If paying by cash, please have the fee in an envelope with your family name on the outside.  ​Please bring to class or mail directly to me – 1617 Dogwood Road, Flourtown, PA  19031.

Inclement Weather – for weekday classes, if schools are closed or have early dismissal, there will be no classes held that night.  For Saturday classes, I will (1) send an email by 8:15am, (2) post a message on the Coyle School of Irish Dance – PA & NJ’s Facebook page.  Please Note:  I will not make phone calls.  Please check the website or Facebook page for any updated information regarding weather related cancellations.

All students MUST have the proper shoes for class beginning in January.  Beginner students should have the little black/pink/white ballet slippers with the elastic across the arch.  It is very important for them to wear the proper shoes so that I cannot see their proper foot technique. If they are wearing sneakers I am unable to see this.  If this is your child’s second year of Irish dance lessons, the proper soft shoes are required.  Contact/or try Fays shoes – http://www.fayshoes.com/products_shoes.htm

Cold weather – Please make sure that each student has the proper clothing for dance class.  Jeans are not acceptable for class.  Please have them wear leggings or shorts under their sweatpants.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Interested in attending a feis?  There is a link on our Website Home page for all of the feis that are sanctioned by CLRG (the commission that we are affiliated) http://www.northamericanfeiscommission.org/2016_NAFC_FEIS_SCHEDULE.html
