Costume & Photo Week at the Studio

It's a "mini-dress rehearsal" at the studio and an opportunity for parents to snap Class Photos of your child's dance class for a keepsake from the 2017-2018 Dance Season!

1. All students should ARRIVE to the studio on their class day, already dressed in their first (or only) class costume of the night.

2. If you have multiple classes - bring all other costumes hanging and labeled neatly in a garment bag.

3. Parents are invited into the classroom for the first 10 minutes.  The teacher will have a prepared "Group Pose" and all parents can snap a shot to share and keep of their students classes. 

4. Each class will do a "run" of their dances in costume to ensure that there are no malfunctions or needs for alterations.  Any and all adjustments that need to be made (straps tightened or added, headpieces fixed, sock color changed etc) will be notated and EMAILED to parents so they can be taken care of in the 3 weeks between costume week and Dress Rehearsal day.
