Dear Students & Parents,
Congratulations on a wonderful dance recital! You all did a fantastic job and we are very proud of you. Watch your e-mail for your recital pictures from Ms. Colleen and SLCK Productions. You should also watch the regular mail for your recital DVD which will be mailed directly to you later this summer.
It has truly been a rewarding experience over not only the past year, but for the past seven years teaching your children and watching them grow. The one thing we say over and over again is that we love our dancers and their families. Some of you have been in our dance family since the day we opened the doors in Chicago. We appreciate your confidence and belief in our abilities and thank you for your continued support. This past year has been a challenge for us and we have had to make a very difficult decision: we have decided that we will close our Chicago school. Our Oak Park school at 1146 Chicago Ave. will be open for classes in the fall and we welcome you to continue to take classes with us there. This has been a very difficult and emotional decision and there were many factors that played a part.
We want to give you the best dance education and experience we can. This includes great teachers, which we know we have. We want to give shoutout and special thank you to Ms. Colleen for just being awesome in everything she does. We are excited that she has agreed to teach additional days in Oak Park. You can still take class with her there.
Our Oak Park location will also feature in person customer service, there will be a receptionist on-hand during dance classes to assist you in any way you need. The Oak Park school also features two dance classrooms, a dressing room, a student lounge, plus the office/waiting area with a video feature for parents to watch class on our mounted flat-screen TV. There is a metered parking lot 20 feet from our front door, in which parking is free after 6pm. We will forward a copy of the Oak Park fall schedule to you later this summer and notify you of our registration day.
This has been a bitter-sweet decision for us. We are sad to close the Chicago location, however we are confident that by focusing on one school the quality of your dance experience with us will be even better.
Again, we thank you for your patronage and support over the years and hope you will consider continuing with us in Oak Park in the fall. Thanks so much!
Kathy & Joe DeMaira
