Welcome Spring!!

To dancers, the arrival of spring means an exciting time-RECITAL!! 
We return from our spring break on Saturday April 7th and look forward to dancing on our newly done floors and in freshly painted dance rooms!  
  The remainder of the studio will be painted throughout weeks we close in the summer.  

Current students-be on the lookout for the final recital news that will go out at the end of April.  It will have specific rehearsal times for each class.

Reminder:  At this time of the year it is important to be in class as all routines are being completed and rehearsed for the show.  Try your best to make every class!

On Saturday, April  14th we will have an optional individual picture day.  There will be no group photos but multiple dancers can be photographed together.  Any dancer interested will be photographed by DSM Productions, who is a new company to us that came highly recommended as they do photo shoots for many costume company catalogs.  They do both headshots and full body with digital files and additional online ordering.  You can visit  www.dsmcustomerservice.com for samples and can pick up pricing sheets at the studio.  Prices begin at $25.
