We are so happy to have you as a part of the 2017 Snowflake Frolic at International Dance Academy! This is an exciting time for our kinderdance, primary and junior recreational dancers, as for some, it will be their first time on stage!!!

The Snowflake Frolic is an annual event, not only to showcase the talent of our recreational dancers, but also as a fundraiser for our Troupe.

The Frolic starts at 1:30 on November 26th, so please have your dancer at St. Martin school by 1pm sharp. A teaching assistant will be available to escort your child backstage to get ready. No parents will be allowed in the backstage area. Your child will be brought out to the gym at the end of the performances by an assistant.

This year’s event will be a silver collection at the door. No tickets will be sold. While the venue is large, please encourage family and friends to arrive on time to ensure best seating.

We will also be collecting canned goods as donations to Christmas Cheer. We will have a box available at the door for everyone to donate items – let’s show Thunder Bay our IDA giving spirit!

We will have raffle baskets tickets and 50/50 draw tickets for sale – this is a popular part of the day and there is something for everyone in these very special prizes!

We will have a bake table of items for sale as well as beverages available at a very reasonable cost.

Finally, at the end of the event we always have some very special guests, including Santa Claus, Rudolph, Elves, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and the Snow Queen who will be available for meeting your dancers, family, and friends. We have secured a local photographer to take pictures with our special guests and they will be for sale, again, at a very reasonable cost.

We are looking forward to spending the afternoon with you at the Snowflake Frolic!
