2019-2020 Registration is now open!
Hello Gym Dandies Families,
It’s time to register for Gym Dandies Classes. The earlier the better!
Last year we had many classes fill early and some people could not get the days they wanted.
We are starting classes on October 28th, so the deadline for registration is October 20th.
Wentworth Families: Be advised that Wentworth’s after school activity schedule will be coming out on October 10th and may affect your preference for Gym Dandies days. Please do your best to adjust your class choice by the first week of classes.
Performance Level Families: The Wednesday evening Performance Level class will be for Advanced Performance Level students who have a lot of experience and are ready to work on some new skills. Please read the description in the registration form. Please sign up for one Performance Level class, until we have the registration numbers we ask that you plan on attending only one class. Hopefully we will be able to be flexible about that later.
EVERYONE: Just so you aren’t surprised, we have increased our registration fee to $175 this year. We feel that it better reflects the current cost of running the program. The Gym Dandies Boosters Organization still covers about half of our operating costs through it’s fundraising. They also provide some scholarship funds for families who feel they cannot afford the registration fee.
2020 National Parade is approaching fast and we need your help to make it a success!
Look for our monthly fundraising events!
Thanks for your help!
