Congratulations to our Performing Company Dancer's for their fabulous Holiday Show.  They were beautiful on stage and brought so much joy to the packed house full of friends, family and supporters.  

Recital and Ballet Costumes!
Check out the Lobby...we have posted pictures of our Recital Costumes for our 2016 Spring Show "Billboard's Greatest Hits" and have a sample of the dress for our Ballet Show "Kaleidoscope".  
Our Ballet teachers will be showing their classes the Kaleidoscope dress and talking to them about what "color" they are in the show.   

We are looking forward to watching all our dancers shine on stage in June!

**Important Dates for your 2016 Calendars**

Picture Day-Sunday May 22nd 

Recital Week at Liberty High School- Monday June 20th -Saturday June 25th 


The studio follows the Beaverton School District bad weather closures.  If school is canceled or let out early, all classes would be canceled.   If school starts late, but goes the rest of the day
 without the weather worsening, the studio would be open that night.  We will communicate any
weather closures via email; you can also call the studio answering machine.
