Going Home


We will send recital costumes home in classes this week. 


After March 5th all unclaimed costumes will be held for pick-up in the Dance Shop


Most students will receive tights with their costumes. Check the size chart on the back of the tights, if you think you have the wrong size, please bring the tights to the dance shop to exchange them.  Please don't try on tights.  We can only exchange tights that are unworn in their original packaging.


Some costumes may require some sewing of straps, shortening pants etc. Please have your dancer try their costume on to check the pant length and see if any straps need to pinned or sewn. If you have questions about how to sew straps (criss cross, straight, etc) or how long pants should be, please contact Miss Carrie. 


Costumes should be ready to wear for picture day, so please don't wait until the day before your photo time to take them out of the bag. We don't want students to look like they slept in their costumes! Costumes should be hung up when they get home and any alterations made by 3/14.


Please don't worry about headpieces.  Just bring them to picture day and we will go over how they will be worn and pin them in there.

Picture Days

Dance Portraits will be taken this year by Donner Photographic. Please notify Miss Carrie if you have a conflict with your scheduled photo time. Students who cannot attend their class' scheduled time may schedule another time to have individual pictures taken, but they will not be in the class photo.

There will be no regular classes on Picture Days, March 14th-16th. Please arrive at the studio promptly at your scheduled picture time in costume with hair- bun at back of head or french braid(s) with end(s) of braid pinned up and makeup (if desired) done. Please don't worry about headpieces.  Just bring them to picture day and we will go over how they will be worn and pin them in there.


If you have more than one costume please refer to the schedule to see which class is scheduled first. There will be limited changing space during pictures. Both dance studios will be set up for photographers, and the waiting room will be curtained off as a dressing room. Studio 7 will also be available for changing. Please try to leave siblings at home and bring only one parent to your scheduled picture time (preferably mom since men will not be allowed in changing areas). Men and boys should enter the studio through the back door. The front door will lead straight into the changing area. 

In scheduling classes for pictures, we have made every effort to limit the number of students in the studio at one time, but there will be times on both days when it will be very crowded. Please plan accordingly, and label all your costumes, shoes and other belongings. Arrive on-time and ready for your pictures to help keep the day on schedule.
