St Patrick’s Day Parades – 
Sunday, March 10 – Philadelphia St Patrick’s Day Parade, Philadelphia
Saturday, March 16 – Montgomery Co AOH Division #1 Parade, Conshohocken
We participate in both parades and the dancers are expected to participate in both not just one.  If you child is interested in participating in the parades they need to attend parade practice.  Practice day and time will be announced shortly.

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.  

Class Attire – I know that is is going to be getting colder out, but please make sure that the dancers have shorts, leggings, skirt, or skort.  I need to see their legs and feet.  They can bring them in their bag and change into them in the bathroom or wear them under their sweat pants.  Shoes:  Please make sure that everyone has the correct shoes.  The girls need to have the little ballet shoes with the elastic across the arch, the little slipper things do not work.  They can not point their toes in them correctly.  They would have to have the correct equipment if they were playing soccer, football, or feildhockey . . . so please have them wear the correct equipment for Irish dance.
