2015-16 Season Initial Information

Published by Flying Cloud Academy on August 14th, 2015

Changes will be coming to our website topic pages and Facebook soon, but Flying Cloud is announcing that its class format will be different this year from past years.  Six week class sequences will be conducted prior to each of the two balls based on preparation for that specific ball.  The traditional every week (mostly) class starting right after Labor Day will not take place this year.  The two six week sessions will start September 30 for the November 7 Returning Heroes Ball and  February 24 for the April 2 Regency Country Dance.

Class pricing is also changed and a class/ball package price is now offered.  Classes will be $5 each for non-members and $3 each for members.  Members who pay for the package by the 3rd class for the class/ball package will be able to do all 6 classes plus the ball for $25.  This $13 (34%) savings compares to $18 ($3 x 6 classes) + $20 (normal member ball admission) or $38 if purchased as you go.  The package is not available to non-members.

Normal ball pricing will be $20 for members and students, $25 for non-members.

Membership remains at $30 for the year.  Please contact Rosie Lemkin, our Vice President & Treasurer at 513-533-3411 or flyingcloudacademy@gmail.com.  You can also come to our rehearsals or classes at Wyoming Fine Arts Center on Wednesday evenings to sign up.

Troupe rehearsals will start for the season on September 9 at 7:30pm.  During the season troupe rehearsals will start at 7:30 when there are no classes scheduled and at 8:30 when classes are scheduled.
