Creative Week is Coming…December 10-15!

It’s that time again!  During the last week of classes before Winter Break, our Discover Dance, Pre-Ballet, Tiny Hoppers, Beginning Kids Hip Hop, and Beginning Jazz students can come to class dressed up in an appropriate outfit or costume of their choice and parents will be invited in for the last 10 minutes of class to watch their dancers. Ballet 1 and 2 students can add a ballet skirt to their normal class attire, and Ballet 3 and above students can wear any color solid leotard with a ballet skirt. Other classes may allow special attire as well, check with your instructor for details.
