For the health of both staff and students, we are asking that parents take measurements of their dancer for their showcase costume. Measurements are due Friday, February 19th. We will need a t-shirt size, pant size, bust/chest, waist, hip, and inseam measurement.

  • If you are unsure of a measurement, go with the larger number, not smaller.
Remember: Measurements due by Friday, February 19th!! This is crucial to the timing of ordering and receiving of costumes.

Please mark your calendar for these important dates! Please print out and keep in a visible place in your home.

Friendly Reminders!

  • Label all costumes, accessories and shoes.
  • Put all belongings in a bag labeled with dancer's name.
  • Dancers are not allowed to wear any jewelry, watches or nail polish.
  • Please do not bring valuables or electronics to the rehearsal or performance.
  • Make up should be a small amount of eye shadow and mascara. Lipstick and blush are not required since dancers will be performing in a solid black face mask.
  • No photography or videos taken of performances. This is not only distracting to other audience members, but it is also distracting to the dancers performing.
