Attendance Reminder 

As the Concert approaches, we would like to remind you and your child about the importance of attendance during this final stretch of classes. In order to ensure a successful dress rehearsal, tech rehearsal and performance, we are asking that your child please attend all classes from now until the end of the year. If your child cannot dance that day --injury, cold, etc. -- we ask that he/she please still attend class and learn by watching. Class time is the only time for teachers to finish and rehearse each piece.
