ATTENDANCE

Please make sure your dance is attending class each week. All classes are working on new choreography either for a new routine or part of their production class. There are dancers who do not know choreography because they are not coming to class. This is stressful not only to your child, but their team members as well. Please make a better effort to get your children to class every Monday. Performance Company is a commitment. Please hold up to your commitment by getting your child to class each week and performances when scheduled. Thanks in advance!

Theater Etiquette
We work very hard to give your dancers a professional show experience.  To do this we need your help.  Our audiences should behave in the same manner as they would if they were watching a professional Ballet or Broadway Show.  Here are a few guidelines:
Please do not put your feet up on the chairs, please do not holler names or sayings from the audience, please pick up after yourself, no exiting or entering while dancers are dancing.  Be courteous to those around you who are trying to watch the show and courteous to the kids on stage.

We have some fun camp opportunities for your kiddos, sign up for any of these camps with a friend and get a $10.00 tuition credit!
