SPRING BREAK – studio closed April 10-16th classes resume April 17th

After Spring Break, there will be sign-up sheets on the table in the lobby for: 5, 10, 15 year recipients, and high school graduating seniors; information about purchasing an ad in the recital yearbook/program; trophies and tee shirt forms (that the show troupe sells as their fundraiser), and many other important recital information. The line up of the shows will also be on the table, and you need to check the spelling of your child's name and to check for any conflicts; write directly on the hard copies. Please do not remove the hard copies of the recital. The deadline for correcting any name spellings, etc. is May 4th.

This is very busy time of the year, and attendance is very important as the teachers are cleaning up routines and finalizing formations, etc.

The picture schedule will be posted online, and your child's room mom will be emailing everyone with the specific time of your child's scheduled picture time. In some cases, it is NOT the same time (or day) as your child's regularly scheduled dance class, so please be sure to check the schedule before the first week of May so you arrive on the right day and time for your child's dance picture. FORMS will be filled out on the day your child has their picture. The forms in the lobby on the small table in the corner are for information and planning purposes it is not the form you will be using on PICTURE Day. Please participate in the group pic, even if you don't plan on purchasing any pictures, as the studio receives a collage of all the groups!

There are no scheduled classes the week of May 1st – the entire studio is used as a professional photography studio with dressing rooms! Your child should arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled picture time; fill out the form; and be in costume ready to do (we could be ahead of time!).

This is the time the room moms will take a group picture outside if your class is participating in putting in a half or full page in the recital book! It usually only costs each family approximately $5 or less to have a memory picture of your child's group in the recital book that you will enjoy in years to come.
