A: Wear the pink tights for the entire show!





Show Dates and Times

Note: Your child(ren) will be assigned to shows. Some classes will be in multiple shows, please plan to have your dancers at all shows they are assigned to. We do this to make sure at siblings perform together and that every show has a variety of ages and styles of dance. It also helps to have older students backstage helping younger students.
