Show Orders:

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.
