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!
Tonight is the last night of regular classes at Footnotes - Saturday, June 11, is a full day of rehearsals, mini-recitals and ending with our big recital at 5:30 pm. This all happens at the Lewiston High School auditorium. There is no charge to attend the recital. We hope to see lots of aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends on Saturday. These dancers have worked hard all year long to improve their dance skills and learn these dances, so bring your smiles and applause!
Two first place ribbons arrived in the mail today from the Asotin County Fair for the April 23, 2016, parade - one for the Youth Dance Team and one for the Mini Dance Team! We didn't even know they had won! Congratulations dancers!!!
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!

Monday and Tuesday Class Schedule
Wednesday and Thursday Class Schedule
We are no longer taking students for the current dance year. The class schedule for the coming dance year will be out in March and registration for current students will start then. New students can register for fall classes the first week of April. Call now [(208)305-6088] and get on the list to have the new schedule sent to you as soon as it comes out!
Dance Camp is happening on February 20th. Pick up a registration at the studio or print the form in the last post. You don't want to miss a chance to dance at an LCSC basketball game!
The 2016 Footnotes Dance Camp will be on February 20th at the studio. This is an opportunity for 6 to 12 year olds to learn a new dance and get to perform at an Warrior basketball game! Camp will be from 10 am on February 20th until 2 pm. we will provide the dancers with lunch. Cost is $30 for the camp. See the flyer below. You can print this out and mail it along with payment to the studio or come in and register.
Our 2016 Winter Showcase will be the week of January 25 through January 28 at Footnotes Studio. This is an informal recital. Students will wear the dance clothes they wear to class and have an opportunity to show their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings what they have been learning in dance class. Each individual showcase will be about 15 or 20 minutes long and will take place on the day your child normally has class. A complete list of each showcase time is listed below and has been given to each student this week during their classes.
We are now associated with the Princess Ballerinas program which is a dance program aimed at our younger dancers. Each month there will be a different theme and the dance lessons and practice music will be based on that theme. Dancers will earn special stickers for learning and demonstrating ability in dance moves which they will put on their own sticker charts. Each month your dancer will bring home their sticker chart to show you their progress. This months theme is "Super Sweet Adventure". Don't be surprised if you hear your little ballerinas singing "Sticky, Sticky Bubblegum", "Lollipop" or the "Gummy Bear" song!
Having a birthday party soon? We celebrate birthdays at Footnotes too! Save yourself the hassle of decorating, entertaining and cleaning up afterwards. We will provide decorations, and dance related entertainments without the fuss and muss. Your birthday child may even have someone special show up! We have direct access to certain princesses who would be happy to wish your child a happy birthday!
If you didn't get a chance to see the zombies, they will be in downtown Lewiston on Halloween for three more performances during lunch time. There are lots of activities in Beautiful, Downtown Lewiston on Halloween including trick or treating and other family activities - but beware the dancing zombies!
Now is your chance to learn "The Thriller" dance! All you have to do is come to Footnotes Dance Studio on Saturday, October 17th at 10:00 am, and we will teach you the Thriller (at no cost). You can then join us and perform in downtown Lewiston in a flashmob on Halloween afternoon. There is another performance on Sunday, October 25th, at LCSC, that you can also join in. There is no age or skill level required, you just need to be able to put yourself out there. This is going to be a fun activity for the whole family.
Let's get your Zombi on!
Olivia has been dancing at Footnotes for over five years and was awarded a metal in recognition of that. Olivia has taken ballet, tap and is a member of our Mini Dance Team. She is a wonderful little dancer and we love her bright smile at the studio. She was able to go to Disneyland in 2014 and dance in parades in Disneyland and California Adventures. We look forward to teaching Olivia for many more years to come. You will be able to see her dance at the tree lighting ceremony at Train Park!
Just a word before we start talking about the parade. We want to thank all the parents who bring your children to classes each week and support them in their extra activities. We are blessed with such a wonderful group of dancers and families. This year has been amazing so far and that is because of our dance family at Footnotes. Thank you for making us better each year.
We are so proud of all of our dance teams! We started practice in August in 100 degree heat and had to move practices inside to the studio after only one practice because of the smoke from the surrounding fires. They have all been troupers! Most of the Mini Team members are new to dancing as a team and did a terrific job. They took first place in the Lewiston Roundup Parade! They were so cute galloping down Main Street on their stick ponies and singing "Rawhide!"
These ten girls are such a joy to work with. Their experience and training really shine when they are performing. It is great to have these girls in class each week. They love to dance and it shows!
We combined the Junior and Youth Dance Teams so they could dance with the Little Pink Barn in the Roundup Parade. They did a terrific job - even though they were the very last entry in the parade and waited two hours before they even got to start. We were honored to help promote Tough Enough to Wear Pink!
Oh, my gosh, so many dancers, so many little shoes and tutus! We made it through the first week of dance classes! What a wonderful week. Lots of new students and lots of returning students, lots and lots of hugs to go around! It is great to be back in the groove of classes. Hopefully everyone was able to get pretty much settled into their schedules. Some dancers weren't able to be here this week as they finished out their summer vacations and enjoyed back to school events.
THERE WILL BE NO CLASSES ON LABOR DAY!
