Important Attendance ReminderWe are nearing the end of the year! Thank you to all families for ensuring their children get to all their classes. This is so important as we’re only a few weeks away from the recital. Please be sure to let your child’s teacher know as far in advance as possible if they aren’t able to be at class. Please remember that if they miss too many classes they will not be able to perform in the show.
Congratulations!Congratulations to the Level 4 ballet class on their beautiful performances at both the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival and Danceworks Festival. They not only performed their piece in both festivals but they also participated in a master class given by the festival adjudicator. This group also won an award for their piece, “Danse Espagnol”, and we are so proud of the hard work they put in, which made this recognition possible! Way to go, girls!
Year End Recital and Costume DetailsCostumes will be sent home the first or second week of May. You will receive a notice with specific information about costumes, hair, makeup and arrival times, along with a notice about all details pertaining to the recital and dress rehearsal. Both these documents will also be available on our website. Please read both notices thoroughly as soon as you receive them and take note of any special instructions. We hope by filling you in on all the details, you will be able to help us run a smooth and enjoyable dress rehearsal and performance!

Once you have ordered them they can be picked up (and paid for) at the studio during your child’s class time.You may be contacted in the next while to ask for help backstage at the recital.
