Announcing 2016 Summer Fun!

Leslie Zirker will be teaching My Time to Shine this summer in Brighton starting June 22nd. 

Do you have a child that has musical talent? Or even a child that just can’t help but tap their foot to the radio?

Bring them to My Time to Shine this summer, not only to learn, but to grow! We’ll teach your kids the basics—from do re mi to step-touch—in a fun and professional environment. The once-a-week commitment will keep them on their toes and leave you with a morning to yourself.

We are committed to teaching wholesome music and dance while providing opportunities that will build character and develop confidence. Music has the ability to bring joy to those performing and those watching, our summer workshop is no exception it will exceed your expectations! We cannot wait to teach your child.

With just one class a week, for seven weeks, your child can gain music and dance experience and meet new friends while still enjoying their summer activities.  Three community performances will generate confidence each time your child is on stage! 

Starlets [Ages 3-5] —9:00-9:45 --An active fun class that will focus on teaching familiar exciting songs with simple dance movements to develop coordination and confidence

Blaze [Ages 6-8] -9:45-10:30-- This class provides an energizing environment that introduces
musical harmony and dance techniques to provide dynamic performances.

Flash [Ages 9-11]—  10:30-11:30 --This class will provide an energizing environment that introduces musical harmony and dance techniques to provide fun and dynamic performances

Glitz [Ages 12 +] —11:30-12:30 --Get excited about gaining some dance technical training; turning, leaping, balance and expression while learning some of Broadway's most popular music.

AND yes, it is affordable!  One low price, with everything included - Shirt, music, pictures, performances, and of course, a whole lot of FUN!!!  $85 for the first child and a $20 discount for each sibling.  

We will be practicing at Eagle Ridge Academy 3551 Southern St Brighton, CO 80601

Performance Information

For the parade route, see the Buffalo BIlls Day page --
The parade starts at 10. However, we are 37th out of 70ish, so we are in the middle. Please drop your children off at 9:15 at 10th and Washington (map attached). I think Washington is closed right there at 10th, so I "think" we can drop of kids there... but I don't know for sure.
PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME! Please plan on extra time to get to Golden and find where we are. Google says it takes 32 min to get there. There will be a lot of people there, and it will be hard o find places to park. It also won't be easy to find us with so many involved in the parade. We will be in our staging area by 8, if you want to come early. Please also remind us or let us know if your child isn't participating in the parade so we aren't worried about waiting for them.
We will have teachers there ready to escort children to the float by 9:15, and will stay until 9:40. You are welcome to come back, as well, but the road is closed to cars. Each year is different, so just be ready to do whatever the policemen tell you, of where you can and cannot go with your cars.

Bring --
- Water
- Wear Suncreen
- Yellow MTTS Shirt, Shorts, tennis shoes, and a hat if desired
- Blanket/Old sheet to sit on (not everyone needs one, so if you don't have one you want hay on, don't worry)

PLEASE have your student use the restroom before. There aren't restrooms at the parade and they won't be able to go once they are on the float.

PLEASE take pictures and video for us -- you can send them to us after.

At the end of the parade, we will drive a few blocks to Kafador Commons where you can pick your children up. Map Here -

Leslie and Jen will all have our phones if you have any questions, or get lost. Please do not call Jessica.

July 29th Show! Reunion Rec center from 9:15-11:15 This is a little longer than before, because of pictures, see below.
There is a nice grassy area just east of the Rec center that we will be meeting in. You will see us in our yellow shirts. Please remember to take kiddos to the bathroom BEFORE we get to the Rec center. We can not overrun the Rec center will yellow shirts. We will go over our songs, and finish taking individual pictures. After the show is done, we will go back outside to take class and a big group picture.
We will need 2-3 parent helpers to help with the masses of people, so if anyone is available to stay and help we would love it.
We will be performing all of our songs (except the boys song) for the show Tuesday.
Glitz girls -- your speaking parts were handed out in class today, but just in case, there is another copy attached.
Practice at PVHS auditorium for ALL classes from 9:00-12:00. Starlets will be done at 10:30. Please bring a water bottle, and we will have potty breaks during practice if needed. We will be going through our show, how we get on/off stage, putting the group songs together, positioning on stage - all those fun final finishing touches.
We will be back that evening at 6:15. We will gather the kids backstage, we will have a sign of where you can drop off the kiddos. We will open the doors at 6:30. Please invite all your friends and family. I've included a flier you can attach to emails, post to facebook to help us get the word out. The show is FREE and we need your help to fill up the auditorium. The show will start at 7pm, and it should last about 45 min.
Here is a list of songs that each group will be performing for the final 2 shows.

Show this Saturday!!!

We are so excited for our SHOW on Saturday!!!!
Unfortunately the Tshirts did not come today... we should have them by Friday at 3pm. We will bring them by your house that evening. IF you are running errands that night and want to stop by and pick them up, just let me know and we will give you the address.
Please arrive at the Southlawn Park in Commerce City at 9:30. It is off of 104th and Reunion Parkway south. This is NOT the Reunion Rec Center, it is south of 104th, not north. If you need a map, please see the blog posting.
The performance will start at 10 am. Please bring blankets or chairs to sit in, and water!
What to wear: Your T-shirt, jean or dark colored shorts (please no really short shorts) and shoes that will not fall off your feet (please no flip flops). Girls, please try to keep your hair out of your face, just so we can see your beautiful smile!
The performance will be about 30 min. We will be performing the 1st song we learned. We will also have some fun interactive audience participation songs too! We want you to notice how much these kiddos grow in confidence with each performance. The first one will they will be a little hesitant, but by the final show you will see little rockstars!
Please invite your friends and family.
We are going to need pictures and video.. so if you can video or take pictures, please let us know. We will be busy running the show, but would LOVE some pictures too. You can send them to us at this email address. Or if you have video, email us, and I'll give you directions on how to get it to us.
We will also start taking some of our individual and class pictures. Don't worry, we know a couple of you can't make it on Saturday, we will for sure get you too!! Please let us know, if you haven't already, if you can't make the performance.
NEXT WEEK - We will be in a different place in the school again next week. Please look for our sign and come in through that door.
We are going to need some help for our Parade July 26th!
Things we are looking for:
A big truck and a long trailer, does anyone have connections??
With so many kiddos, we will have a separate truck just for our Starlets. So this could be a regular size truck.
Helpers - we need helpers to decorate our float. We are creative, but not when it comes to decorating!! We'll get all the supplies, we just need a decorating leader to tell us what to do, and some minions to do it. :)
Thanks -
Leslie, Jen and Jessica
