May is going to be an exciting month for us. There are a lot of things happening! We will hold evaluations for the 2016-17 season on Saturday, May 21st. If you are not currently on LDP’s companies or crews but would like to be, make sure to attend. Also, if you have friends that are interested in joining our LDP family next season, encourage them to attend both the evaluations and the New to LDP Parent Meeting listed below.
LDP is also excited to announce Musicality in Motion which will feature LDP’s Tap Project dancers. You certainly don’t want to miss out on this.
May is also a busy month for CORE! May 3rd is Sacramento’s third annual Big Day of Giving. CORE is a huge part of LDP. However, CORE is also a proponent for arts in schools and bringing dance to everyone. There is more information below about the Big Day of Giving and how you can help CORE keep our many wonderful outreach programs. I hope you will consider supporting CORE that day. And of course, don’t forget about auditions for The Doorway coming up this month. You can also find more details about that below and at corecontemporarydance.org.
May is also the month where we get to celebrate mothers! We would like to express how grateful we are for our version of the “dance mom” here at LDP. Our students would not be able to achieve all that they have and grow within the program without our loving, supportive LDP dance moms. We appreciate your willingness to let us spend so much time working with your kids. Thank you for helping us create a positive and nurturing environment. We couldn’t do it without you. Thanks!

If you know people who are interested in joining our LDP family, please encourage them to attend this meeting! The faculty will present information about LDP’s philosophy, programs, companies, and crews.
