YPAC Culver’s Night April 26 2017

Hello YPAC families! No need to cook this Wednesday April 26th! Come join the YPAC community at the Yorkville Culver's as we raise funds for the Enchanted Forest costumes and set. 10% of Flyer sales all day will go back to YPAC. We will have ballerinas and their families serving dinner in the dining room from 5:00-8:00. Do you have friends and family that are thinking about joining YPAC and registering for summer programs? Spread the word and tell them to come on into Culver's because Bridget will be there waiving registration fees to new families who register that night! Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Sick Student? Use this Link!

Gone are the days of calling your student absences in!!! YPAC is happy to announce that you no longer have to call or email in your student absences...all you have to do is complete a brief Google Form!

Simplifying processes is one of our main goals this school year and we are so glad to make reporting attendance a little easier on everyone!

Help Us Reduce Waste

BYO Mugs, Water Bottles, etc. In an effort to reduce waste, YPAC is asking that when you and your family come to the center, to please bring your own mugs and water bottles. We are happy to provide a water and coffee station for you to enjoy while you are at the center, but want to make sure we are not causing excessive waste by proving paper/foam cups. Any little bit will help our environment, so join us in implementing this positive change!!!

ID Company: 2017-2018 Season

2017-2018 ID Season We are in the planning stages of next season! Our year-round season requirements will be switching over starting right after the Year End Show. If your child is not planning on auditioning for ID next year, their commitment to the company will cease then. We will be holding parent/teacher conferences on Tuesday, June 13th. A Google sign-up will be sent out at a later date. If your dancer is planning on re-auditioning for ID Company, here are a few required dates to put into your calendar: * Pre-ID Audition Meeting (For Parents and Dancers)- Monday, July 10th (Evening, Time TBA) * ID Auditions- Tuesday, June 11th (Late Morning into the Afternoon) * ID Choreography Camp-Monday, July 30th-Friday August 4th (Morning-Early Afternoon, time will vary depending on number of routines that will be set) *The Ballet Experience-Saturday and Sunday, August 5-6th (9am-5pm) The Winter Ballet Experience will be optional for ID members. Since enrollment in the GT Program is a requirement of all ID members, dancers will continue to take their GT classes throughout the summer as well. We are looking forward to all of the exciting things planned for next year!

Seating is Limited

Bags and Personal Property on Chairs Just a friendly reminder that when you and your students are at the center please do not leave bags or personal property on the chairs. Seating in our lobby is limited and we would like to reserve chairs for people to sit in. Student bags and personal property can be stored in the studios. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
