Fun Facts for Halloween:

The first Jack O’ Lanterns were made from turnips

According to tradition, if a person wears his or her clothes inside out and then walks backwards on Halloween, he or she will see a witch at midnight

“Halloween” is short for “Hallows’ Eve” or “Hallows’ Evening,” which was the evening before All Hallows’ (sanctified or holy) Day or Hallowmas on November 1. In an effort to convert pagans, the Christian church decided that Hallowmas or All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2) should assimilate sacred pagan holidays that fell on or around October 31

Samhainophobia is the fear of Halloween

Original  trick-or-treaters received mostly fruits and nuts not candy

Black and orange are the colors of Halloween.  It is believed that the orange color represents harvest and the Fall season.  The black color represents death and darkness

Did you know that over 90% of parents steal their children’s Halloween candy!

Please remember to always wear proper attire to dance class and bring your best with you!  All dancers should always have on a leotard, tights and proper dance shoes that are required for your specific class. 

Hair should always be pulled back and out of the face at all times. 

Please remember to always try your best and always show up for class on time.
