1. Annual Membership
The annual membership is designed to help make the enrollment process as easy as possible for our dance families. No need to stress over if a class will fill up before you get a chance to register anymore! Plus, we enroll your dancer(s) for you, so you don’t have to worry or stress about getting into the class(es) recommended for you and/or your dancer.
The annual membership fee is $45 per dancer and $80 per family for 2021-2022 and will be charged March 25th to current families. The fee includes priority registration, easy enrollment, and special discounts for birthday parties, workshops, and summer camps. Reminders will be sent via email in February and March.

4. Recital Makeup Kits
A little worried about applying stage makeup on your young dancer at Recital? We are happy to offer Recital makeup kits for our youngest dancers ages 3-8! Kits include eyeshadow in warm taupe and champagne shimmer, liner in burgundy plum, sweet pink cheek color, long-lasting raspberry lip color, and a double-sided application brush. An instruction packet and a video tutorial link are also included and will retail for $36. Please fill out this Google Form by MARCH 25th if you are interested in purchasing one.
*For our first-year parents- you are probably thinking, “Makeup?! Why does my child need to wear makeup?” We’re so glad you asked! Dancers wear make-up on stage to enhance their facial features, which can be washed out in the light or hard to see from the audience. Younger dancers just need a little bit of light makeup applied to counteract the sunlight and distance from the audience. A little eye shadow, mascara, blush, and pink lipstick will help your dancer shine even more on stage! It does help to practice ahead of time if you think it might bother him or her.
5. Costume Day
Would you like to get a sneak peek at all of the costumes? Come to the studio Saturday, March 27th from 9:00 am-12:30 pm, to help us unpack and prepare the costumes to be handed to the dancers during their classes. You do not need any garment knowledge, just the willingness to lend a helping hand! Sign up using the link HERE!
6. Practice, Practice, Practice!

7. Recital Prep Is In Full Swing!!
In case you haven’t guessed, there are A LOT of moving parts that go along with putting on a recital! We will be sending out a separate Recital Newsletter shortly with a timeline of important information regarding your dancer’s big day! Remember, all Recital information sheets will be posted to the recital tab on our website as soon as it becomes available as well as information for all events.
8. Tights & Costumes
Please check the sizing chart on the packaging before opening your tights. We will be happy to make any sizing exchanges needed, however, tights are not exchangeable once they are opened. One pair of each style tights per dancer is included in the costume fee. These will be handed out this month.
Costumes are still arriving until the beginning of May, so if you haven’t received yours yet, don’t worry!
9. Student Choreography Showcase Auditions
All dancers ages 8 and older are invited on Saturday, March 27st at 12:30 pm to audition for the Student Choreography Showcase. Choreography for the Showcase is a great responsibility! We audition dancers to make sure they are taking it seriously and are prepared with all the steps completed on or before the audition date. You must have your song approved by someone in the office before filling out the Sign Up Form. Choreography pieces MUST be fully completed at the time of the audition in order to be considered for the Showcase. If the dancer has completed all steps on or before March 27th, there is a fee of $30 per dancer per dance to cover the cost of auditioning and running the Showcase ($10 audition fee & $20 performance fee). Currently, we are looking at placing showcase pieces in the show that the dancer has most of their dances in. Audience members do not need to purchase extra tickets for the Showcase if we were to have a separate show as we have done in the past.
If you have already submitted your song selection to Miss Lindsey for approval and you have filled out the sign up form above, please print and fill out this audition form and bring it to your Audition on March 27th! Student Choreography Showcase 2021 Audition Form
We look forward to a wonderful show!
