Dancing Classrooms Greater Richmond and Short Pump Elementary presents…
Short Pump Elementary Culminating Event
Dear Families of 5th Grade Stingers,
We would like to personally invite you to the Culminating Event at Short Pump Elementary. This is our Ballroom Dance presentation where we invite you to watch the children present the dances and hear them speak about their experiences.
Please join us on Tuesday, March 12th at 1:20 pm in the Gym. Plan for the event to last about an hour.
Over the last ten weeks your children have learned much more than the Merengue, Foxtrot, Rumba, Tango, Polka, Swing and Waltz. They have begun to develop a greater level of respect, etiquette, self-esteem, trust, tolerance and teamwork.
The dress code for your children for this event is elegance. Traditionally in ballroom dancing, the ladies wear a skirt/blouse or a dress with shoes that stay securely on their feet. Please no sandals, flip flops or Ugg type boots. Gentlemen traditionally wear a button-down shirt or polo shirt and dress pants. Ties and bow ties are optional. Please no heavy tennis shoes or boots. These are encouraged guidelines. Please do not feel obligated to purchase new clothes for this event.
We are very excited to share this event with you and hope you will be able to join us.
