Picture Day was a HUGE Success!

Thank you to all our dance families for taking time out of their busy Sunday to bring their dancers to Picture Day.  The costumes, hair bows, fancy make up, and all the beautiful smiles made the day fly by.  The staff enjoyed seeing all the dancers dressed up and excited about the upcoming shows!


If you ordered pictures, teachers will hand those out to the dancers during the last week of classes.



Lost and Found-

We had some costumes and accessories left at Picture Day.  Those items are being held at the Front Desk. 


Additional Lost and Found items will be displayed in the main lobby this week.  After Memorial Day weekend, those lost and found items not claimed will be donated to Goodwill.
