ONCE UPON A TOT
We like stories a lot! We also love being onstage and dancing too. Come join us for a fun introduction to
theatre and movement where your child will use their imagination to learn about fairy tales and explore fun
movement in dance. This class will meet on Fridays throughout the school year, however, on the Fridays
that our ONCE UPON A TIME productions are being held at Century II, this class will be given one free
ticket per student to come see our show (parents and family members must purchase tickets). Also, the
teacher will have prepared the students to see the show by reading the story and making a craft to go
along with each fairy tale. Students do NOT need to be potty-trained for this class, however, those
who are not must have a parent in the building at all times. These students will perform one number
in our Jr. Dance Recital in the spring and there will be a costume fee. (However, participation in the
recital is optional). Students will need ballet shoes only. For required dance attire, please see page 13.
