  • RECITAL COSTUMES

    Please review the costume books at the front desk which are organized by class day to see what your dancer will be wearing at the recital! Costumes are handed out at the studio as they arrive. If you have not received your child's costume, please notify the front desk. All costumes should be marked with your dancer's name before recital day.

     

    Hair and makeup for all recreational classes is as follows:

     

    EYES: Natural tone eye shadow (beige/browns), black eyeliner and mascara

    LIPS: Red lipstick

    FACE: Foundation to match skin tone and natural/light blush, if necessary

    HAIR: Mid-height bun for ballet (with hair net or bun maker); mid-height pony tail (if long enough) for all other classes

     

    SHOES: regular class shoes for all classes except hip hop (pink ballet shoes, black mary jane buckle tap shoes, tan jazz shoes for 3-10 year olds; tan turners, black tie tap shoes, pink ballet shoes for 11 & up classes)

     

    Hip hop teachers will decide on either all white or all black sneakers (any brand) and will advise parents.

     

    If tights are required for any classes, we will let you know what color is needed. Generally, ballet will require pink tights, 5-7 and 8-10 year old jazz/tap will require tan tights, and 11 and up jazz/contemporary will not require tights (just bare legs).

  • PICTURE WEEK:

    Monday May 20 - Thursday May 23

    Pictures take place the week following recital, May 20 -23. Dancers should arrive with hair and makeup complete. A dressing room is available in Studio C for dancers to change into their costumes. If your dancer is in a class with more than one costume (Creative Movement and Jazz/Tap classes), please wear your tap costume for pictures. Your child may take an individual picture in a different costume if time permits after all other pictures are completed.

     

    Parents are able to view and purchase pictures on picture day. Multiple photographers will be on-site to move dancers through quickly, so we ask that parents stay at the studio rather than dropping children off and leaving. Group pictures will be taken first and should only take about 15 minutes. Afterwards students may have individual pictures taken if they would like.

     

    A detailed schedule for recreational classes and Crew is available below. Pictures will be taken on your child's regularly scheduled class day and time with the following exceptions:

     

    -- Monday night 11 & Up Intermediate Ballet and Jazz/Contemporary will both have pictures from 7-8

    -- Monday night 13 & Up Advanced Hip Hop will have pictures from 7-8

    -- Wednesday night 11 & Up Beginner Ballet and Jazz/Contemporary will both have pictures from 7-8

    -- Thursday night Breakdance will have pictures from 7-8

    -- Thursday night 11 & Up Beginner Hip Hop will have pictures from 7-8

    -- All Friday classes will have pictures on Thursday night (instead of Friday) at the same time their usual class meets

     

    Company pictures with Jeri Tidwell are on June 15th - 8:00AM-12:00PM

  • VOLUNTEERS

    We couldn't do this show without our amazing volunteers!

     

    Volunteers keep our shows running smoothly by helping with costume changes, lining up dancers, and chaperoning dancers in the dressing rooms. They may be moms, dads, older siblings, or close relatives. Volunteers are not required to purchase a recital ticket to the show they volunteer for and are able to watch their dancer's routine by stepping into the audience one number before they perform. Thank you in advance for your help!

     

    NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR VOLUNTEER SIGN-UPS HAS PASSED

  • QUESTIONS?

    Recital time may be overwhelming for students, new and experienced! Please let us know if you have any questions along the way and we will be more than happy to guide you.
