Costume Orders

Costumes for all students dancing in the annual recital will be ordered this week. Costumes are non-refundable and non-returnable. 

If your child will not be participating in the annual recital, please let Miss Carrie know by December 4th. If you previously declined to pay a costume deposit because you didn't think your child would be in the recital, but would now like her to participate, please contact Miss Carrie, so she can add your child to the costume order list.

Families are responsible for their entire costume bill even if their child withdraws from classes between December and June.

Spotlight on Martha Graham

Martha Graham is the mother of modern dance, so it is only appropriate that we named our lyrical company after her. She not only patented tilts and prances, she also helped bring modern dance into American homes with her television presentations.  Here is a video of her company dancing to "Night Journey".
