What fun we had at
the holidays!
Many thanks to all
our family and friends for
making our holiday
performances a time of great
dancing and celebration.
A very big THANK YOU to everyone
who helped make our fundraising
efforts a great success!! They have
offered a great service to Studio
back and we’ve recently returned from Atlantic City where our
dancers made us very proud showcasing at The Pulse! Pictures are

1% for Humanity - In recognition of our 10th Anniversary and of the joy
and blessings we’ve received during this time, The Studio is humbled to
to join 1% for Humanity. You all give so much of your time and talents as
we work to serve those in our community and we are grateful. We
appreciate all you do and want to be doing our part as well. Thank you!
Ronald McDonald House - Speaking of service, we are confirmed to
serve a meal at the RMcD House on Sunday, Feb 2nd. We will know
more concerning time specifics shortly. We need to plan to feed 50
people. We may cook onsite or prepare and bring. We may only have
eight [8] adults onsite and if we bring kids [any under 18] the ratio
should be 1 to every 3 adults. Anyone who might like to serve in this
capacity is welcome. Please let Ms. Vicki know of your interest by 1/23
so we can plan. Thank you!
Performance for Seniors - Thank you to all who performed for the Senior
Community in Camp Hill on Sunday, 1/12. It was a wonderful
experience and the residents truly enjoyed the performance!

donated to The Studio’s scholarship World to perform in their Christmas parade, please join us Wednesday,
1/22 in the waiting room at 7:05pm for a 30 minute meeting. All dancers

It’s not to be missed - May 10th. There is a meeting this Wednesday,

Performing Groups: Just to have all of the information in one place. We are taking off Jan & Feb, resuming
rehearsals in March. We have a performance at Kinkora on 3/9 at 3pm. On Friday, 4/25 we are taking
these groups to a Talent Explosion competition at the Radisson in Camp Hill. [That is a picture / audition /
Alice rehearsal weekend so please make a note it will be busy!] Also, we will be performing at
Fredricksen Library to celebrate National Dance Week on Tues, 4/29 at 7pm. I realize this is during the
week and late-ish. All of the slots were week nights and at 7pm. Our show will be no more than 30 minutes
as I understand it and will start with our younger dancers so they can get out of there quickly! Our final
show for the performing groups will be part of the ballet on May 10th! That’s it for the year. :)
Competition Teams: To review your schedule as well, recall we have a competition the weekend of
1/31-2/2, 2/28 - 3/1, and 4/25. The first two are in Lancaster and the third is in Camp Hill. They will also be
a part of the show joining the ballet on May 10th!
