At last year's recital we were waiting our turn to go on stage and just to be silly, I borrowed a friend's tap shoes and danced in them (even though I don't know how to tap) and it was really fun!

I have a mom, dad, brother (Aiden) and a dog named Cleo.
If you aren't dancing...What else do you like to do?
I like to do gymnastics, ski, run, and watch YouTube.

I see myself being a teacher.
Tell us more...Share one fun fact about yourself!
I am obsessed with "Lush" bath products.

Elite Performing and Competitive Company Auditions for the 2016-2017 Season-

Picture Day-
Picture Day is Sunday May 22nd. Mark Your Calendars! Pictures will be taken at the studio by Northwest Sports Photography.  Order forms will be sent home with dancers the week of pictures.

Recital Tights!

Click here for Ballet

We have a full stock of recital tights available to purchase at the front desk.
Remember... Dancers need to have the correct tights by Picture Day.  It's always a good idea to buy an extra pair, just in they can wear them for class later.  If you have questions about your class tights, please feel free to ask their teacher. 

Recital Info- 
This year our Studio recital theme is "Billboard's Greatest Hits" and our Ballet performance theme is "Kaleidoscope".
I will be emailing Recital Packets in a few weeks.  This packet will include rehearsal schedules, ticket order form, show times, room mom volunteer and more.
