NEW! Recital Ticket Message Board-


In an effort to assist our families exchange unwanted tickets that were purchased, or obtain additional tickets, we have implemented a message board on our website. We will activate the message board Monday May 7th.

If you are trying to sell your tickets, there is a quick form to fill out which will generate a post. If you'd like to buy tickets in addition to the 6 you are allotted for I'm With The Band, this is the page to check out. 

When you've sold your tickets please email us at to let us know and we will remove your post.

Picture Day-
P icture Day is Sunday May 20th.  Mark Your Calendars! Pictures will be taken at the studio by Northwest Sports Photography.  Order forms will be sent home with dancers the week of pictures.

*If you will not be attending Picture Day please let the front desk know or send us an email so we are not waiting for your dancer.

Recital Tights!

Click here for Recital Tights 2018
Click here for Ballet

We have a full stock of recital tights available to purchase at the front desk.
Remember... Dancers need to have the correct tights by Picture Day.  It's always a good idea to buy an extra pair, just in they can wear them for class later.  If you have questions about your class tights, please feel free to ask their teacher. 


Recital/Picture Day Hair and Make Up!
The last attachment will outline the required hair style for each class and will also give some helpful hints and products for appropriate stage make up.  Remember, make up is an important part of the dancer's overall look on stage.  
Teachers have 
discussed with each class how to wear their costumes hair accessories, but don't worry; the teachers will be on hand at Picture Day to make sure everyone matches!  It's a great "dress rehearsal" before the big show!
