Behind the Pink Door always wanted to be able to spend more time at the Weatherford location though my schedule has been stretched between classes, students, events, choreography, planning, costuming, etc. I have been able to arrange classes to allow myself this opportunity most months. I will be able to come to Weatherford for classes Monday through Wednesday and be onsite if anyone needs me. Feel free to email me at whitney@footworkspac.com anytime and I look forward to being able to see everyone.

Whitney’s Window Dear Parents, Hello everyone and welcome to the 2012-2013 dance season. Classes are going great and everything is progressing wonderfully. We are very excited to have some new instructors joining us this year; Hayley Bassham, Emily Cardona, Kendall Aragon, Alexa Hubenak and Haley Adams. If you have not had an opportunity to visit our website recently, please stop by to check out their bios and all the new updated photos and videos. Thank you to everyone that shared such wonderful photographs of your children growing with us at Foot Works. In celebration of our fifth anniversary, we will be having "Theme Week" each month to celebrate our 5th Anniversary. During theme weeks there will be special decorations, music and dance related games for your children to look forward to. Please let them dress up for the theme to make it even more fantastic! The following is a schedule to help you all plan ahead: October November December January February March April May

Halloween Fall Fest Christmas Western Valentine's Easter Red Carpet Event Hawaiian Luau

Oct 22nd - 28th Nov 12th - 18th Dec 17th - 23rd Jan 21st - 27th Feb 11th - 17th March 22nd - 28th April 15th - 21st May 13th - 19th

As always, if you have a problem or concern, please stop by the office to discuss. Everyone at FWPAC wishes you all a terrific dance year and thank you for being a part of the Foot Works family.

As I did last year, this year I will be spending 1-week a month at the Weatherford studio to allow families a greater opportunity to visit with me. In the past, since I am often in the studios teaching at Benbrook and only at the Weatherford location for Wednesday morning classes, office hours have always been the best way to arrange parent meeting time to insure my full attention. I have

Blessings,

Ms. Whitney Website: www.footworkspac.com

COSTUME AND RECITAL FEES Recital Costume Fees are due NO LATER than October 15th. We will be placing the Recital Costume Order the last week of October and only order costumes that have been paid in full. If you are on Automatic Payment program and have specified the fees to be split up please do not worry as that is on schedule. If you do not remember if you specified that please contact Ms. Susan and she will check your account.

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS FOOT WORKS? Interactive Travel Map fo FWPAC Families We have an interactive travel map where parents and dancers can share their globetrotting photos. When taking your next vacation, be sure to wear your FWPAC logo gear, snap lots of pictures and email them to us with the location and we’ll get them uploaded ASAP.

Will Rogers Recital Fee is due on or before December 15th. During Registration families paid the 2012 Christmas Recital Fee which is often confused with having paid the Will Rogers Recital Fee. Please note this is a separate fee for the end of the year event and was not collected at Registration. If the 2013 Will Rogers Recital Fee is still showing up on your monthly statement that means it has not been paid yet.

FWPAC Sweats

Support Your Dancer with Style!

We offer a wide variety of items perfect for your dancers, family and friends. There is a large selection of t-shirts with several fierce color combinations to choose from and the FWPAC sweats outfit is ideal for colder weather. Dads look great sporting the embroidered baseball cap and monochromatic Polo shirt.

TUITION FEES Tuition is due by the 10th of each month. On the 11th, a Late Tuition Fee is applied. Late Fees are not waived per the Registration Agreement. To avoid this fee you may: ? Stop by the office to make a payment ? Use an envelop to leave a check in the mailbox §These

can be found in the bins along the hallway at each of our studios.

? Use the PayPal link on our website ? Sign up for Automatic Payment § Automatic payments are run between the 1st

Car Decals

and 10th of the month and include tuition only unless added fees have been specified by the parent when signing up for the program. This allows you to never worry when tuition is due while avoiding those annoying late fees. PLEASE NOTE: You will still receive statements the beginning of the month. If you have already asked Ms. Susan to run everything listed please disregard the statement or send her an email specifying what items to include with the normally scheduled tuition/fees.

Dance Backpacks

Keeping your dancer organized is a breeze with the black/pink or black/blue dance backpacks, which are personalized with their name. Accessorizing is a snap with our specially designed FWPAC Silly Bands featuring our logo ballerina. All of these and more are available to order directly from our website or by stopping in the office.

The

Works Company with dancers traveling in from throughout Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana to compete. The Nationals competition is usually held outside the DFW area. In the past, we have traveled to Galveston, San Antonio and Las Vegas.

WHAT IS COMPETITION DANCE? Competition dance is a sport for dancers who enjoy performing live, being part of a team and competing with dance teams during the year. Competition dance styles include Jazz, Ballet, Tap, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip-Hop and more. Dancers are part of a team performing one or more dances at local, regional and national competitions. As dancers progress, they may also be invited to perform in Solos, Duets and Trios along with their Company dances.

HOW DO YOU GET ONTO A TEAM AND WHEN ARE AUDITIONS HELD? To become a part of the WORKS COMPANY we ask dancers to audition. Our auditions are held in groups according to dancer's ages to allow the instructors to see individual skill level as well as identif y which dancers would be best together on the same team. During the audition, our instructors lead them through various dance techniques including Ballet and Jazz.

WHO/WHAT IS THE WORKS COMPANY? At FWPAC, our competition dance teams are called the WORKS C OMPANY . We have various teams according to age and skills level. This year's competition teams include: ELITE WORKS SENIOR WORKS TEEN WORKS JUNIOR WORKS STAR WORKS PETITE WORKS MINI WORKS JUMPSTART WORKS

Auditions for the Works Company are held twice a year. The 1st is held at the end of May before summer begins and the 2nd is held at the end of July after we hold our summer preparation camps. When possible we encourage prospective dancers to attend one of the camps to allow an opportunity to learn and improve their technique before the 2nd audition.

HOW OFTEN AND FAR DOES THE WORKS COMPANY COMPETE? Our teams participate in anywhere from 3-5 Regional competitions and 1 National competition per year. Regional competitions are often held in the local DFW area

Become a Part of the Works Company! For more information about becoming a Company team member please contact Ms. Whitney at info@footworkspac.com. Website: www.footworkspac.com
