Footnotes Dance & Fitness

Footnotes ~ not just creating successful dancers, creating successful people!

Winter Showcase 2017 January 23 thru Janaury 26

The Winter Showcase is an informal "Mini Recital" held at the Footnotes Dance Studio. Participating dancers (Baby Ballet classes will not participate) would wear dance leotards and tights as they would in class. Dance skirts are optional. Hair should be off the face in a bun or a ponytail. Cheer Students should wear shorts and t-shirts (absolutely NO TIGHTS).  Remember to bring your dance shoes!

Dance like it's 2017!

Classes begin again on January 3, 2017! As usual we have spent the break cleaning and updating, and we have been busy ordering costumes for the Spring Recital!  That is very exciting.  We will begin getting some costumes delivered at the end of the week and others won't arrive until the end of March! Dancers who have not yet paid for their costumes will have to wait - we will not order them until they are paid in full.  No costumes will be handed out until after the Winter Showcase, which is the last full week in January.

One important change is that we will no longer allow ANY street shoes in the individual studios.  If you forget your dance shoes - you will have to dance barefoot. Our floors are taking a beating from the dirt that gets tracked in by street shoes, so we want to remind everyone DO NOT WEAR YOUR DANCE SHOES OUTSIDE!  This damages your shoes and our floors. Fitness classes will need to clean the bottom of their shoes before entering the studios. (There are wipes available to clean your shoes.)


Getting Ready to perform!

The holiday season will soon be upon us, although we have been hearing Christmas carols at Footnotes for weeks. Each of the Dance Teams have been working on holiday songs to perform in the community in the upcoming weeks.  Can you believe its only two weeks until Thanksgiving?!

The first holiday performance for the Dance Teams will be at the Lewiston Train Park Lighting Ceremony on November 19 at 5:00 pm.  Dancers will arrive at 4:45 pm. Please come out the support our dancers and have a great time walking among the beautifully lit trees!

On December 10th the dancers will be performing again at Breakfast With Santa at the Lewiston Community Center. The performance is at 10:00 am, with the dancers arriving at 9:45 am.  This is another fun activity for those who still believe!

Later that same day the Footnotes Dance Teams will be performing at the Nez Perce County Fairgrounds at the Christmas Extravaganza at 1:30 pm.  Again the dancers will be there 15 minutes early.  This is a fun event and an opportunity to find some handcrafted items for the holidays!

Are you looking for dance wear?

The best place to purchase quality, affordable dance wear is right here at Footnotes. We have leotards, tights, dance skirts, booty shorts, dance sweaters and Footnotes jackets.  We have a variety of sizes and colors in stock - especially that hard to find toddler size. We have footed, convertible and footless tights. Dance shoes can be ordered and we have a program to exchange used shoes that makes purchasing dance shoes more affordable. Check out our new dance bags, we have a style for everyone!

Classes are going well!

With almost three weeks completed, classes are going well. We have opened a new Princess Ballerinas class on Thursdays at 4:00 pm because all of the evening Princess Ballerinas classes were full!  If you are looking for a fun class for your 3 year old, this is a great place to start them dancing!

Classes begin this week!

There is still time to register for the 2016-2017 dance year. Classes are filling up and some are closed. Register now to be assured that you can get your dancer in the class you want!

Need dance wear?  We sell ballet, tap, jazz and lyrical shoes.  We also sell used ballet, tap and jazz shoes for only $5.00! Stop in early before class and we can fit your dancer for shoes.  We always have a supply of tights - footed, convertible and footless, and leotards, dance skirts, booty shorts and sweaters.  

Open House is coming!

We are busy getting things spiffed up for the upcoming Open House. Open House will be the week of August 15 through the 18th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. This is a good time to check out any new changes that have occurred during summer break and get your dance wear before classes begin!

Twinkle Toes is now Princess Ballerinas. This class is for the 2 to 3 year old beginning ballet dancers.  We were participating in the Princess Ballerina program beginning in January 2016 so some dancers will remember the themes from last year and the sticker sheets they brought home each month.

Register now!

Don't delay, classes are filling up!  We already have four classes that are full and several that only have one or two spots available.  Monday is particularly popular, so if you are thinking of registering for a Monday  class, now is the time.

Congratulations to the new dance team members!

On Saturday we held dance team auditions at Footnotes.  We want to welcome all new team members and congratulate all of the dancers who made it on dance team!
