Classes are back in full swing for 2015 and here are a few items.
Copybooks and homework: I have been saying that I would like all dancers to bring a copybook to class for a few weeks. Beginning next week I would like all dancers to have a copybook. The dancers need to remember their steps and things that I tell them in class. For the younger dancers, you are more than welcome to video the class. As long as it is used for practice purposes and nothing other. I have also given homework for the week, not an hour every night, but something that will take about 5/10 minutes 2/3 or even 4 times a week. Your children are doing nicely, but in order to progress they really should practice alittle over the week. I am not trying to drive anyone crazy and it isn’t a punishment. When they dancers know their steps it really makes everyone’s learning experience fun.
Tuesday Class – PDT Studio – for the month of January, Tuesday night class will be only for those dancers that are in Prize Winner (with more than 3 firsts) and our Championship dancers.
Class will begin at 6:30 and we will go till 8pm.
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.
January Payment – The final payment is now due. 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 and (3) post something on the Coyle School website home page.
