Shoutout To The NHPA II Dance Company

KinetixNationals1

The Teachers would like to take a moment to recognize the NHPA II Dance Company for their outstanding representation at the Kinetix National Finals in Galveston, TX this summer! All of the dancers performed beautifully, and the studio was awarded some pretty outstanding honors for their excellence. In addition to performing in the competition, NHPA II Company members took part in a dance on film workshop that resulted in 2 very awesome dance film shorts that are posted on the Kinetix YouTube Channel! Click here and see if you can spot some of your fellow NHPA II classmates on film!
Some of the NHPA II Dance Company results from the competition are listed below:

Many of the NHPA II routines (solos, trios, and groups) received Highlight Awards, Excellence in Technique Awards, and placed in the Top Overall Scores. Also, for the 11 & under age group, the NHPA II Junior Company was nominated for the Choreography Award and won both the Synergy Award and National Artistry In Motion Award.
For the 12 & up age group, the NHPA II Teen Company was nominated for the Choreography Award, Cinematic Award, National Artistry In Motion Award, and won the Synergy Award. We are so very proud of these dancers for displaying such a high level of technique and artistry to be recognized at the National Level! Congratulations!

Friendly Reminders

Class Placement

The first few weeks in the season will be used as "Placement" classes for each student. Our emphasis at NHPA II is on learning excellent technique, therefore students may be moved up or down in Levels at their teacher's discretion once "placement" classes have been completed. Any student that misses a consecutive 4 weeks of class without notification to an instructor or office manager will be un-enrolled from class.

Dress Code

Please take a moment to review the studio policies & dress code. Please make sure all dancers come to class in Dress Code so that they may learn, and be instructed, properly.
Please click here for more detailed information on the NHPA II Dress Code for both girls and boys.
NHPA II does have a used shoe bin that dancers are welcome to borrow if they forget their dance shoes or grow out of their current dance shoes. We encourage the dancers to take responsibility to have the proper shoes for each style of dance they are taking. For Example: If your dancer is taking a Tap class, then they will need to have Tap shoes. So please remind your dancer to come prepared with proper dance attire & shoes for their classes.

Tuition Payments

Tuition is due at your child's first class of each month and a $10 late fee will be added to tuition paid after the 1st class. Tuition is due in full for all months, September thru June. If you need to make payment arrangements, please speak to one of the instructors. We have a Tuition Drop Box located on the wall to the right of the office window for convenient payment drop-off...just please make sure your child's full name is written in the memo if paying by check. We would prefer cash payments to be made to an office administrator or instructor. If you decide to drop cash in the tuition drop box, please make sure it is in a sealed envelope with your child's first AND last name written on it so that the payment is credited to the correct account.
