Hello Dancers and Parents,
Recital preparation and rehearsals are well underway. Please read all recital information and schedules carefully. Recital packages are available here: Junior Package Senior Package. If you have any questions, please speak to an instructor or contact the studio.
Our recital runs smoothly with your help and the time that you are able to volunteer. Active participation will ensure that we are able to keep costs and fees low and still provide a well-run show for the community. It is for this reason that we are requesting you to commit to volunteering during the recital. Signup sheets will be posted on Studio C windows during photo weeks and in a binder at the front office after that. Job descriptions with information including arrival times for each of the jobs will also be posted.
Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to working with you and enjoying a fabulous 2020 Recital together!
