PARENT IN STUDIO WATCH WEEK

Parents are invited to observe your dancer’s class in the studio the week of December 16 through December 21. Come in and see all that your dancer has been working on this season. Classes will be set to festive holiday and or Christmas music and are sure to get you in the spirit as you proudly watch your dancer’s progress.

Space may be limited. We will provide each studio with chairs, however due to the size of classes you may have to view from the floor. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

Please note that there will be observation available for competition technique classes the last hour of class only. Any classes longer than an hour will have observation the last hour of class.


We welcome dancers to dress in festive dance attire and accessories.


Please note: in the event a staff member is out ill for parent watch week, or if we have to cancel class for inclement weather there will be a makeup date scheduled and emailed in this case.
