Leesburg Dance Centre presents “Celebrating 25 Years” as we prepare for this year’s dance recital. The venue for the show and rehearsals will be the Paul P Williams Auditorium in the Fine Arts Center of Lake Sumter State College located at 9501 US Hwy 441, Leesburg. The rehearsal and recital dates are: Tech rehearsal, Wednesday, June 6, 2018, 5pm; Dress rehearsal, Thursday, June 7, 2018, 5pm; Recital performance, Friday, June 8, 2018, 7pm; and Recital performance, Saturday, June 9, 2018, 2pm. Everyone is expected to be there all four days as each student will dance in both performances.
Recital packets will be handed out beginning Monday, March 5th during your students classes. If you do not receive yours by the end of the week, please notify the office as soon as possible. All the information concerning the recital is in the packet. Please read it and return the forms by the deadlines specified on each. We at Leesburg Dance Centre love recital time and we hope dancers and their families will have a positive and enjoyable experience. Recital tickets will go on sale Saturday, May 5th for $17 each from 10 am - 12 pm at the studio. All seats are reserved. Tickets will be available after that during normal office hours.
Please mark your calendars for Costume Week, May 7 - 11. A parent or guardian is asked to attend your dancers’ classes during that week for instruction on dressing room, costumes, hair, and make-up. It is important that you or someone you trust attends that week. Costumes will not go home until costume balances are paid and tuition is current. NO exceptions!

Leesburg Dance Centre is putting together a Facebook page for all of our Alumni. I would like to invite you to like and check the page for updates concerning our 25th Anniversary.

The studio will be closed on Monday, February 19th for Presidents Day, March 19th - 23rd for Spring Break, and Monday, May 28th for Memorial Day. We will have Monday classes on June 4th.
We offer open classes once or twice a month for anyone who wants to enhance their dance experience. Please check out our website, www.leesburgdancecentre.com, and like us on Facebook for dates and all up to date info.
Just a reminder, it is very important that all dancers come to class on a regular basis. If you are unable to attend a class please notify the studio or teacher by phone, text, or email. Thanks.
In closing, I hope everyone is enjoying their classes and looking forward to our 25th recital, as are our teachers.
