Hello LSOD Dancers and Families!

 Below is the Footnote information for both Divisions.  Please read start to finish and share with your dancer.


Winter Break:

LSOD will be closed for Winter Break from Sunday, December 23rd through Sunday, January 6th.  We wish everyone a very happy and healthy holiday season spent with family and friends.  See you in 2019!  Regular classes resume the week of January 6th.


Thank You to the LTM Ballet Company Dancers!

The Le Tableau Magnifique Ballet Company dancers escorted and served veterans and their families during the Palo Alto VA Hospital's annual holiday luncheon at the Livermore Facility.  The dancers also performed excerpts from The Snow Queen, presented handmade gifts and cards, and visited with the attendees.  It was a wonderfully rewarding day, full of respect, appreciation, and honor.  Thank you Dancers for your dedication!


Holiday Sights & Sounds Parade Congratulations!

Bravo to the 57 Candy Cane Lane Dancers who performed in the Downtown Parade on December 1st.  You were ALL amazing and looked awesome dancing down First Street. Thank you to Chloe, Mickey, and all the volunteers who helped with the event.  Make sure you look at our picture, on the jazz bulletin board in the lobby, that was on the front page of the Independent.  WOW!

Borrowed Christmas Costumes:  Thank you to the families that allowed us to borrow your Christmas costumes for the parade.  I will have them ready for return by next Monday after 4:00pm.  Please feel free to pick them up.  I will have the costumes upstairs by the restrooms, with your names on them.  ~ Liz


Protect Your Valuables:

It has come to our attention that another dancer has had money taken out of her wallet while she was in class at LSOD.  We are again asking dancers to please keep their possessions inside one of the studio rooms while they are in class and to keep all bags and purses zipped up and closed.  We are very upset about this problem arising again and are narrowing down the windows of time when the theft is happening.  We will be installing cameras to try and resolve this very serious issue.


Ballet Division Costume Orders:

Costume forms and payment were due on December 1st.  If you haven't already turned in forms and payment, please do so before the break.  Costumes will only be ordered for dancers who have turned in completed forms and payment.
