Elevate is excited to announce that we will be putting on another show on September 3rd to close out the summer. If you would like to participate and perform in the show you must be enrolled through both July and August!
For more information refer to the flyer below.
3. INSTRUCTOR SEND-OFF
Many of you may know Carina as she has become a staple here at Elevate with her colorful hair and incredible skill. Proficient in all apparatuses, Carina has been training here since 7th grade and has since become one of our main instructors.
We are so proud to announce that Carina has been accepted to circus school and will be sadly leaving at the beginning of September. We know how much all the kids love her and hope that each of her students can sign a card for her as a parting gift!
4. HALLOWEEN SCRATCH NIGHT
Did you miss out on the Sept. 3rd Show? Well don't fret. We have another opportunity for you to show us what you're made of. Maybe it's sugar and spice and everything nice, or maybe snips, and snails and puppy dog tails. Whatever it is, we want you to dress it up and perform it! Scratch Night is an individual or group performance, choreographed on your own. We just host the party. It is kind of like Open Mic Night at a comedy club but for performers. Try out your act on us.
October 14th at 6pm.
$25 to participate
Sign up online or with the front desk.
*all acts must be approved by Jacque and submitted by video the week before the show
5. LOST AND FOUND
Over the past few months, our lost and found has become increasingly full. We will be donating the contents in the picture soon, so if you see anything that might be yours, please stop by and collect it!
CIRCUS FUN FACTS
Circuses have been around for hundreds of years, with the first documented circus being held in England in 1768.
The word “circus” has the same root as circle and circumference, recalling the distinctive environment in which such entertainment is presented—the ring, a circular performance area usually bounded by a short fence (or “curb”). The ring may be enclosed in an arena, in a building designed for circus performances, or in a tent, and it is generally surrounded by tiers of seats for spectators.
Performers let us know their acts are done with their own signature style - maybe a wink, a hand gesture or a “Ta-dah!”
*If you know one of the circus facts, stop by the front desk for a treat!
1. UPDATED PAYMENT POLICY
As we shift into the fall, Elevate will be implementing a new policy: a forty-five-dollar one-time enrollment fee. Not to worry, this will only affect new students, not those of you who are already with us! The forty-five-dollar fee will also apply when students drop a class for an extended amount of time and decide to re-enroll. Remember, if you can’t make it for a class you can always contact Jacque Rogers (email@example.com) and schedule make-ups free of charge!
2. Absences & Tardiness
We understand that the holidays (and life in general) are busy. However, it is important to communicate with your instructor and/or Jacque if you will not be attending class at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled class date so that we can put you in an available make-up class. In addition, we do not penalize tardiness, but recently, there has been a consistent pattern of some showing up more than 10 minutes late. We kindly ask you to please be mindful of everyone's time and show up a bit early so you can get the most out of your class!
