Top 10 Practices for Dance Class
(Modified from Merce Cunningham)
 
1. Consider everything as an experiment. 
2. Be self-disciplined - practice quality and positive mental attitude.
3. There is no win, and no fail. There is only make.
4. Do the work, and you will eventually catch on.
5. Do not try to create and analyze at the same time.
6. Be happy whenever you can manage - enjoy yourself.
7. Ask when confused - strive to know more.
8. Find trust, try trusting for a while.
9. Pull everything out of your fellow dancers.
10. Because nice matters.

Farewell Dance Practice on Wednesday, 4/25

Sorry for the inconvenience, but the doctor says I will not be able to attend the Farewell dance practice today, 4/25, from 3:00-4:30 PM.  Sawyer is still willing to teach those who are allowed to stay after school to learn it, but she will be arriving closer to 3:10 PM.  Otherwise, we posted a video and the music from yesterday, so you can learn it from the comfort of your own home.  Keep up the good work 8th graders!  You are almost done with Fisher; there is no turning back after that, so give it all you got!

Advanced Auditions 2017

Great job at the advanced dance auditions!   
 
I appreciate everyone's attendance and hard work.  We had over 200 dancers try out for 40 advanced spots. Yes, you braved that stage, and should be very proud of yourself no matter the outcome.  Most things are out of your control at an audition, so it is important to remain proud of your best effort.  There are still 80 spots available for Open dance.  Please register for the class on Powerschool to reserve your spot.  
 
Sincerely, 
Mrs. Meyer

SAVE THE DATE!

Auditions for advanced dance will be held on Tuesday, April18th, and Wednesday, April 19th. Choose one day to attend, and meet us in the breezeway (between the dance studio and gym) to get your audition number.

Dear parents and students,
 

I'll remind you!

Remind: How is your posture right now? ;)

Welcome to dance class!
 
This year we will be changing with PE in our new locker rooms, which means each student will need to purchase a Master Lock from the PE department for $10.00 cash or check written out to Fisher Middle School. Personal locks from home will not be accepted. 
 
Thank you,
