After dropping off your dancer, you will not be permitted in the backstage/dressing room areas, unless you are a designated helper with wrist band.
  • TOTS will be dismissed immediately following their performances
  • PRE-DANCERS will be dismissed after ACT I (unless they are in Pre-K Acro, which will be dismissed following the Acro production in the beginning of ACT II)

  • All balances including June’s tuition payment must be paid in full by Monday, June 5, 2017. Recital tickets will NOT be available to purchase if your balances are not paid in full (including June tuition)!  Classes will run through the end June, therefore, June is a full month’s tuition.
  • If all balances are not paid in full, your child will NOT participate in the show.

To help our backstage moms, please label all costume pieces with your child’s name. All accessories should be placed in a Ziploc bag with child’s name and class. The backstage moms do an incredible job, but sometimes the dressing rooms get messy and we want to make sure every child goes home with what they came with!

Make sure all costume balances are paid in full!  Children with outstanding balances (costume or tuition) will not be permitted to perform in the show.


If you haven’t done so already, please make sure you sign up for tights and shoes in the lobby. If you do not sign up, you will be responsible to get items at dance store.

DVD Orders

There will be DVD order forms in the lobby. There will be NO Videotaping the night of the show or dress rehearsal. Your dancer will LOVE a DVD as a reminder of their time spent dancing with friends.

Flower Orders

There will be a form in the lobby shortly from Garden of Eden for pre-orders. We also have the florist come to the show, so you can purchase flowers that day as well. Pre-ordering  is nice, you don’t have to wait, you just pick it up the day of the show.
