Hello LSOD Dancers and Families!
Below is the Footnote information for both Divisions. Please read and share with your dancer.
REMINDER: Studio Holiday Closure:
Please be reminded that the studio will be closed for regularly scheduled classes this Monday, February 18th in honor of President’s day. Studio policy states you have 2 months to do a make up class at level or below. For Ballet dancers, however, we are offering special ballet classes (described below).

Jazz Division Costumes:
We will be ordering costumes in a couple of weeks for our Jazz Division’s upcoming June showcase. More detailed information (including costume prices) will be emailed out to you shortly. We apologize for the delay in getting this information to you. A costume will be ordered for every dancer unless otherwise specified. Costume fees will be posted to your Studio Director accounts and payments will automatically be made to the credit card on file when tuition payments are ran on March 1st. Please email the studio as soon as possible if you need a payment plan for families with multiple children and costumes. Please save the show dates: Friday, June 21st and Saturday, June 22nd. Special Theater rehearsals will be that week as well.
Musical Theater Master Class - Open to Both Divisions!:
LSOD is happy to announce a Master Class straight off of Broadway! Broadway Connection is bringing Hello Dolly to our studio! The Broadway Connection Master Class will be taught in the musical theater style of Hello Dolly and is open to Intermediate to Advanced dancers, ages 11 and up. The Master Class is Sunday, March 10th from 9:00-11:00am and is $30 a dancer. Students will have an unforgettable experience taking their musical theater dance and performing skills to new heights in this BC Master Class! Join us for an exciting and inspiring Musical Theater class taught by a BC teacher and current touring Broadway performer. The class will end with an informative “Behind-the-Scenes” Q&A where students are encouraged to ask about auditions, Broadway, and the excitement of performing every night! Afterwards, we are invited to go see the Broadway show Hello Dolly in San Francisco! Hello Dolly show tickets may be purchased online, separately at www.shnsf.com, tickets start at $76 for balcony seats.
The Broadway Connection Master class is open to the first 25 dancers. Please email the studio to register. Fees will be posted and charged to the credit card on file on March 10th. This is going to be awesome! Class flyer is attached.

We are going to be doing a second LSOD logo sweatshirt sale for all dancers and family members. We have two styles to choose from: a grey hooded pullover or a black zip up jacket. If you’d like to order one, please see Liz Roberts upstairs at the studio next Tuesday, February 19th from 3:30-6:30pm. Liz will be there to take orders. Please pay by cash or check, payable to LSOD. If you are unable to come during this time, please email the studio and Liz will set a time to meet with you. All orders must be in by March 1st.
A reminder to all dancers and families:
· Our bathrooms are frequently clogged and it is due to paper towels being flushed. Parents, please escort your children to the bathroom. We appreciate your assistance in this matter.
· Dancers are still being dropped off illegally in front of the studio. This is very unsafe! So far, we have been lucky that no accidents have resulted. We want to avoid anyone getting hurt, so please follow the laws of the road.
· Please be respectful of the noise level in the waiting area while classes are in session. We have had many students talking very loudly when entering the studio and in between classes. Thank you for your cooperation.
