Tickets are dhs.75 each and you can purchase via your dance teacher in advance, otherwise you can purchased tickets on the day of the show.
Turning Pointe are pleased to announce that we are going to commence using The School Communicator as our method of keeping you up to date with all our News and Events etc. Over 45,000 parents and almost 90 schools within the UAE are already using The School Communicator daily, so for the majority of you, this will not be a major adjustment.
After 30th June 2016, we will no longer be sending general email blasts or group SMS for any class updates etc and would encourage parents to download The School Communicator asap. For those of you who already use The School Communicator, you can search for, then select Turning Pointe and register your details, then filter your childs dance class/s to ensure you only receive information applicable to your child. We will continue to send emails for personal communication.
Look out for an email hitting your inbox next week with instructions on how to download the app and navigate through it.
Email reminders regarding this will be sent out in the lead up to the cutoff date but to ensure you don’t miss out on any important information, please download the app asap.
