September 2019

Happy School Year! Thank you for making these first two weeks of classes a success!

Substitute List:

You can find the Sub schedule on the Staff Page of our website. Please check to make sure I have classes you are absent for listed and covered as well as to remind yourself when you are subbing.

Studio Calendar:

I have had several questions about reserving studio space. You can see the studio schedule and reserve space by clicking the big pink button at the top of the Staff Page on the website.

Attendance Folders:

Please continue to take attendance for each class and leave your folder in the folder container upstairs. This is how we can make sure that everyone is signed up for class and paying appropriately.


Timesheets for all of September 2019 are due in your mailbox before Wednesday, September 25

Preschool Teachers:

Send me costume preferences by Nov. 1 so I can begin conversation with Kim in time for Black Friday shopping.

Lake, PT, DPT, SCS from Duke Physical Therapy Sports Medicine at Center for Living will be at Barriskill Dance Theatre School on Saturday, September 7 from 9:00-11:30am to provide free physical therapy screenings for BDTS dancers and faculty.
