Production Costume Fittings for Pre-Company this Sunday!
Sign Up for a Time!
In order to get an awesome look for everyone, I'm asking that EACH DANCER sign up for a group fitting time THIS SUNDAY! This will give me a chance to fit each dancer in pieces that I have already and find out what pieces I still need to purchase. I can fit up to 5 dancers in a slot. 

Signing up for a fitting time is EASY! Simply click on the link below and select a time that DOESN'T overlap with your rehearsals. Then, meet me at the studio and we'll get your costume ready to go!

All fittings will be in a group setting so dancers should wear a leotard allowing us to try costume pieces on without changing privately.

Note About Taking Pictures and Video at Cathy Roe!

This competition allows us to have TWO people taking pictures/ and or video! They will sign a waiver and wear a special vest to designate them as our official photographers- no one else is allowed to take pictures or video or we will risk disqualification

If you would like to  volunteer  to take pictures or video, please email me! 

don't have to be able to do it all day, even just a few hours would be great! Ultimately, we would need one person taking pictures and one taking video for each dance.
