We are looking to start a Mini team for ages 4-6 years old! If you have a dancer this age, please email me to let me know you are interested! Teachers have sent me their recommendations for that team and email invitations will go out this week! We are also renaming/regrouping all of our current teams to allow for smaller age groups and more levels! Please email Miss Becky if you and your dancer/s are interested in joining one of our teams!


Audition Dates and Times:

Spotlight On:

Caroline Lemieux Age 17

This is Caroline’s 12th year at SDA and has been dancing with us since she was 5! Carol is one of our Elite Diamond Dancers and takes every class available to her including Advanced Ballet, Pointe, Jazz/Lyrical, Tap, Hip Hop, Technique, Ballroom, and Contemporary. Carol also has a solo, trio and small group this year in competition! She is always super involved in everything we do and is one of our strongest leaders. Whether its painting props, cleaning, hyping up her team, giving advice or laughing with her teammates, Carol is always someone we can count on putting a smile on our faces and we love her for that! We are so lucky to have her for one more year and will certainly be sad to see her graduate next year!


Recital Ticket Information

Again, this year, we’re working with a company called TutuTix to make it easier for you to get tickets to “Celebrate: Cheers to 15 Years!”.

Tickets will go “on sale” beginning May 10th, 2023. Tickets for the 11am recital will go on sale at 11am. Tickets for the 4pm recital will go on sale at 4pm. At that time, you can purchase tickets by any of the following ways:


  1. Go to our special TutuTix page at
  2. Visit our mobile page at
  3. Just call 855-222-2TIX

A couple of additional items to note: You need a credit or debit card to buy tickets. Tickets will be sold first come, first served. So buy early to get better seats.


You can see a tutorial on how to buy tickets at this link:

TutuTix charges a low, fair fee for their service. Included in the $25 ticket price is their per ticket fee, plus 5% processing charge (you are not paying anything additional to $25 per ticket).


You’ll have several options for how you want your ticket delivered. You can have it emailed to you, or sent to your mobile phone internet browser at no charge! Or, you can choose to have TutuTix mail you foil-embossed keepsake tickets for an additional fee– with your dancer’s name printed directly on the ticket!


*The ticket link will not show up or work before the time tickets go on sale. It will say you need a password but that goes away when they go on sale.


**If you have support questions, please contact the number above for Tutu tix. I cannot fix any computer issues or give refunds for tickets. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE BUYING TICKETS TO THE CORRECT SHOW! This company is separate from SDA, and your questions will be answered more quickly by them. Of course, feel free to call me if there is anything I can do! The website WILL be busy at the beginning of sales so be prepared to have back up seating options if you cannot get the ones you want. Most of the parents will be buying tickets right at the start time on that first day!


Thank you for another great month at SDA! Please email me for any questions or concerns!
