DON’T forget DANCE SHOES! All dancers must wear flesh colored dance tights (gymnastics class wears tights that stop at the ankle). If your child is in more than one dance, all other costumes must be labeled (white tape works well) with the student’s name and dance on it.  It is highly recommended to have a garment/dance bag with all of your child’s costumes in your child’s hands. Please put all accessories to costumes (bows, shoe ties, etc.) in a plastic baggie with your costume bag. Don’t forget tap/ballet shoes and flesh colored tights.  Please put your child’s name on his/her shoes! Dancers will be released to parents at the end of the show at the South ramp of the main lobby. Stage parents will be waiting with your dancers to deliver them back to you.

We should finish by around 8:30 p.m. If your dancer is late to the recital, they may miss their performance. It is imperative that your dancer is on time!
