LAST CALL FOR ADS
Deadline Extended!
PLEASE HAVE ANY REMAINING ADS TURNED NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, MAY 12th!

YOU MAY USE ANY PICTURE YOU WISH FOR YOUR AD.
HOWEVER, THE DANCER MUST BE IN DANCE ATTIRE.
Every year, one of the highlights of our recital is our beautiful keepsake program book that showcases our studio and students. Each family is encouraged to support their dancer by buying or selling an ad that can include a picture, words of wisdom, best wishes, or congratulations. Ask your family, friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and local businesses to sponsor a picture page for your dancer. Students can be pictured together with a fellow dancer and the families can share the expense.
Students can also purchase more than one ad. Make your child's dance recital complete this recital by buying an ad for the annual recital program book. This is a great way to acknowledge the dancer in your life for all their hard work. It's also a great way to advertise for your business and reach a target demographic. We have different sizes available and ads start at just $25. 
You will choose the portrait that goes in the advertisement.
The dancer that sells the most ads will be featured as our 2022 Cover Girl!

Royal Dance Camp
Parent Responsibilities & Communication
Students must attend classes regularly for their own benefit as well as the growth and development of the class as a whole. Our dance classes are based on individual commitment; however they are fueled by the entire class. If you are sick, running fever, showing symptoms of Covid-19 or someone living in your home has Covid-19, please stay home for the safety and wellness of our dance family and community. By coming to class we assume that all students are healthy and able to dance. If your child has a sprained ankle, cast, etc. PARENTS should let us know about the situation in advance and we will let your child observe the class.
No Parents or Visitors in Dance Class
No Parents or visitors are allowed in the dance classroom. Dancers are more focused and perform better with less people in the room. Dance is also about learning independence. You will see your dancer grow so much in confidence from their dance 
classes. If your child is feeling anxious about being in class without you, you can help by explaining to your child that they can show you what they learned after class.
