November News Letter

It’s Recital Time!

It’s time to start preparing for our annual June Dance Recital.  The recital will be held June 7, 2018 at Higley Center for the Performing Arts.

Teachers have selected their songs and costumes!  Ms. Shannon will be measuring all of the dancers for their costumes during the weeks of November 6th and 13th during their regular classes.

The recital fee of $50 per dancer is due on November 15th.  This fee will be debited to your account on file on the 15th.  If you would like to pay by cash or check, please do so by November 14 at 8:00 p.m.

Costumes will be ordered in December to ensure their timely arrival. We know that it is not convenient to pay for dance recital costumes around the holidays, so in hopes to make it easier on our families, this year, 50% of the costume total will be due on December 10th and the remaining 50% will be due on February 10th.  The price for recital costumes are listed on the back of your registration form and with our school policies.  Please click here to download the Recital Handout.

If your dancer will be unable to participate in the recital, please stop by the front desk to complete an opt-out form by November 14th.
