If we don’t need to use it, it will be a free day of dance review for everyone!

Review before Ball if not)

Friday, March 2, 7-10 PM – Ball

Total Cost:  Early Registration & payment (must be received before Jan 13) $60/family for all six/seven classes

or $4/person (aged 5 and over) per class

At-the-Door Registration & payment (Jan 13 or later) $72/family for all six/seven classes

or $5/person (aged 5 and over) per class

(This $4 or $5/person cost applies to guests you bring that are not part of your family; they must have a separate registration.  Only your children’s grandparents and people living under your roof are included as part of your family.)

 There is no charge for younger children; they are most welcome, but you must be responsible for them!

The facility will be the gym of:

Trinity Lutheran School

4689 North Highway 94

Saint Charles, MO  63301

 Directions:  From I-70 or I-270 take 370 to Hwy 94.  Go north (east) on Hwy 94 about 4 miles (about 5 minutes) to Trinity Lutheran School.  It will be on the left, shortly after a curve to the left and then back to the right again.  Look for a well-lit, red brick school building with flagpoles out front.

Rules for the building include basic courtesy and common sense.  We will have the gym, rest rooms, and entry foyer, (plus the kitchen on the last evening for our Ball).  Non-marking/court shoes are required.  (If we need to pay extra for cleaning or damages, the price goes up, of course.)  All children must be attended by a responsible person at all times.  If they don’t wish to participate, they will be able to play quietly on the floor in the entry or along the edges of the gym while we dance, but they must stay off the dance floor and they must have someone with them to keep them out of harm’s way or from getting into mischief.  We’d like to be welcomed back next year, too!

Registration opens October 1, 2011.
