Recital Costumes-
Our annual tradition of "COSTUME WEEK" is just around the corner and I  know all our dancers will be so excited to return to classes after Spring Break.  The energy and excitement at the studio is always at an all time high during this time!


Teachers w ill  take a few minutes during each class to have their dancers try on their costumes to ensure proper fit, discuss tights/undergarment requirements and decide on placement for accessories.  If everything fits, the dancers will be able to take their costumes home.  We sure hope they will follow our directions and immediately hang up their costumes once they arrive at home!  If you happen to miss class that week, you may pick up your costume from the front desk or from your teacher at the end of class time the following week.

** If there are any problems with costumes, please bring them to our attention as soon as possible so we can do our best to resolve the problem before picture day!

Recital Tights-

The teachers are working on finalizing their recital tights. By mid April, I will email out a list for each class and we will have a full stock of tights available to purchase at the front desk.

We will be using TuTuTix again for this years Ballet Performance and Studio Recital.
