Important Note!

There is no class Saturday, March 11-Friday, March 17. Join us for shows!
 
March classes will end April 1st so that every class meets 4 times (so you don’t need to do a make-up for our St. Patrick’s Day class break).

Shows Open to the Public
Most of our shows are for private organizations like schools and nursing homes and are not open to the public (so people can’t just drop by to watch us dance). However, here is a list of our performances that are open to the public:
 
Saturday, March 11—Parade! 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., lodo Denver
 
Saturday, March 11—show! 2:00-2:30 p.m., Exchange Tavern, Westminster

St. Patrick’s Day Parade
 
The Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held on Saturday, March 11 downtown in the morning. All our dancers and families are invited to join us!
 
Heritage dancers will wear their Heritage costumes and black tennies. If you don’t have a Heritage costume, be sure to talk to your teacher as soon as possible. Don’t forget to buy black tennies if you don’t already have some.
 
Every Heritage dancer under the age of 18 needs to have a parent, family member, or other adult marching in the Parade with them (dancers ages 16-18 who will be driving themselves to the parade do not need an adult with them). Parents, siblings, and friends who would like to march with us need to wear a Heritage t-shirt or sweatshirt.
 
Dancers and anyone marching with them should sign up online by clicking this link:
 
We’ll be sending out information next week, when the Parade sends us our starting time and other information.
 
 
March Classes
 
We will not be having class from Saturday, March 11 through Friday, March 17.  To ensure that everyone gets four classes, the month of March will end April 1.  Dancers will not have to make up the missed classes from these days because we will have four classes in March.
 
Don’t forget that you need to take any makeups that you have from January through March by Saturday, April 1. Thanks!
 

Dublin Zoo Stage Show DVDs
Thanks to everyone who attended our stage show at the Lakewood Cultural Center February 19!

Thanks!
 
Spring Semester
 
The last class of the current Winter Semester is Saturday, April 1. We’ll then be going on to our Spring Semester! Here are the dates for spring:
April (April 2-29)
May (April 30-May 27)
June (May 28-June 24)
The schedule for the Spring Semester will be the same as the current schedule. We just ask that all dancers let us know that you’ll be attending class in the spring by putting your name down for the classes you’ll be coming to on our Sign Up Genius page:
There will be no registration fee for returning dancers who sign up for Spring by Saturday, March 25, so all you need to do is put your name down. : )
If you won’t be attending all three months of the semester (for instance, if you’ll be skipping June), please let us know in the Comments section of the sign up. That helps us plan our classes. Thanks!
