Hello to parents and students of CFPA!
Some important info:
HALLOWEEN PARTY FOR PERFORMANCE CLASSES
Students are encouraged to wear this costumes to class this week! We will be playing themed games and scenes to celebrate.
Parents of Wednesday’s Performance Classes: class is scheduled to go ahead, however, please let us know if you intend to miss class.
KIWANIS MUSIC FESTIVAL
Please do not wait until last minute to contact Courtney for help with registration. Parents have to complete their own registration this year. Courtney’s business hours to provide help are 12-3pm Monday to Friday, Oct 29-Nov 2nd. The deadline is November 3rd.
Support for parents registering for Kiwanis Music Festival this year:
Thank you for your patience as we wait for the clothing order to come in! New orders can be placed before Christmas.
DECEMBER RECITAL SERIES
Courtney is working to create the show schedule for Sunday, December 16 & Saturday, December 22 at the Hibernia Manuels River Interpretation Centre. Shows will take place between 9-5pm.
We are planning 30 minute shows, following a 30 minute Christmas party for students and families in the Discovery Room next door to the Theatre. Parents are encouraged to bring a treat with them to the party (plate of cookies, juice boxes, cupcakes, crackers, etc). One thing per family is fine.
You may send in conflicts at this time, however, we have an enormous undertaking trying to accommodate everyone’s schedules. Siblings are being considered and we will try our best to ensure they are either in the same show or back to back to make it easier on parents.
LESSONS IN CAROLS
Courtney is in the process of organizing a community fundraising event for Coats For Kids, the SPCA, the Food Bank, and shelters in our surrounding areas. We are partnering with Churches (currently interested: one in St John’s and one in Paradise) and dates will be released soon.
We will be looking at a 45-60 minute program including traditional Christmas carols and stories of kindness, compassion, acceptance and giving. This will be open to any and every student of CFPA, no matter what age or level.
Courtney will be holding auditions for soloists and readers for these events. We are expecting the turn out to be huge, especially where we are partnering with the congregations of these churches. Please let us know if this would be of interest to you.
(Students in Divas: we will try not to conflict with the Divas schedule!)
FACEBOOK GROUPS FOR PERFORMANCE CLASSES
Courtney is working now to set up Facebook Groups for each performance class to provide videos for home practice in the choreography we are doing in class. We arranged these last year, and parents have been asking for them, so we will be delivering!
To find your group:
CFPA, the age of the class, day it takes place, then either:
OP - Open Performance
APD - Advanced Performance and Drama
CFPA 9-12 Tues APD
That’s it for now!
Please let us know how your experience is going with us so far.
