As promised, May 1st and here is the Hair Tights and Shoe list for year end show.

There are used shoe buckets at the studio if you are needing shoes…don’t buy new shoes for year end!
Picture day only needs light make-up to enhance your features but hairstyles should be as stated on sheet.
Note, the Primary level that wore Piggie buns for festival, will still do so! This includes: Butterflies, Shake a Tail feather, Wizard of Oz and Ol’
For those that need some visual assistance, one of our dancers has volunteered to show us what our hair, earrings, and eye makeup should be

March Group Rehearsal Schedule
Wed March 28 and 29 there are no regular classes (except for Tiny Tot and Kindertot). Instead, we do our festival group costume rehearsal in those 2 days.
These are very important days for the festival students to attend and dance in full costume. Most fixes and changes to costumes are done right then and there! All accessories and headpieces are handed out these days.
Parents are welcome to attend and sit quietly. Students should be ready 5-10 minutes early and warm up and change quickly!!!
These rehearsals are at the studio and the students should attend in full costume, no make up required but hair should be up and in a bun or pony so they can dance. Proper shoes and tights are required for this day!
Private Rotation Schedule Posted
So far so good. We’ve had a great start to the season and we appreciate everyone’s patience and participation in getting all the programs sorted out. We are happy to begin our private lesson rotation schedule. Please navigate to the Private Lesson page on this site which can be found under the Registration menu. The latest rotation schedules will be found there.
Keep up all the hard work
