COMPANY DIRECTOR'S NOTE!
NOTES FROM KRISTEN!

Hi Company Families!

Amazing job at Stage One!  It was a HUGE competition and all of our dancers did so well!  I'm extremely proud of all of you!

The hard work is not over, though, and attendance is MANDATORY from now until after our last competition!  

This Sunday, April 15th, in addition to rehearsals, we will be taking specialty routine pictures!   This format should make recital picture week at the studio much easier on Company Families. Please note! We will NOT be taking a full company group picture or a Production picture. However if you would like to take an individual picture in your production costume, you can do so!

Dancers should be dressed in full costume with all accessories, hair in a high bun and make-up done nicely at the start time of their scheduled pictures. Please do your make-up and hair at home and arrive early in time to change!

Please see below for the picture and rehearsal schedule! 

Here are a few quick notes but BE SURE TO READ THE BLOCKS BELOW to stay up-to-date on all of our Company Information!
  • Specialty Routine Pictures will be taken this Sunday, April 15th in addition to Sunday Rehearsals! Only your weekly class pictures will be taken during recital picture week, April 23-26. See block below for details!
  • Aladdin Jr. Auditions are this Saturday, April 14th! See block below!
