~bring a friend week
Ask a friend to come
and join you in class October 22-26. All classes except Company, Team and the PreProfessional Ballet classes participate.
Our eleventh presentation of the Nutcracker-All Jazzed Up tentatively will be
Sunday, December 16th in the Mason High School Theater. We have two
show times, 1:00 and 4:00 pm. All
ticket proceeds from this
performance go to the Mason High School After Prom Program. All our Company
and Pre-Professional Ballet students perform, as well as some of our younger
ballet students as our Angels and a few of the parents and staff. Don't miss it!! Our production is a great length for
a young audience and tickets are very affordable. Tickets will be available in our office
and at Mason High School the day of the show.
~dance with me week
The last week before Winter Break is the parent's chance to
come and dance along with their child in our PreDance or Ballet/Tap Combo
classes. Leave the cameras at home and be sure to wear comfortable clothes.
Just for the fun of it, wear you pajamas to
class February 11th-16th.
Our annual performance is held in early to mid-June. All
students are encouraged to participate although it is not required of
any one. A recital is an important culmination of months of
training and preparation. Every dancer needs the excitement and
pride of having their moment in the spotlight. If you do not wish
for your child to participate in all or part of their dances, please
notify the office in writing by December 1st. (A few of our
classes do not participate in the recital and these are marked on our
