Costumes - These should be paid for at this time. The orders are in and costumes will be handed out as they arrive, usually in May. Our Recital date at The Whiting is June 15th, with the dress rehearsal on June 14th. In May, you will receive your recital letter with all of your extra rehearsal times and recital instructions.  

Recital Fee -  The recital fee for tickets is due April 1st. It is $200.00. This will come out thru Tuition Express with your April tuition. This is one fee per family. We charge this fee instead of charging per ticket at recital time. It covers the rental of Whiting Auditorium, the union stage crew, scenery, programs, props and security.

                           Our Studio Dancers of The Month

Scarlett Kihn – Senior Dancer -   A truly gifted dancer who has worked very hard to improve her skills. She is friendly and helpful to fellow students, a good role model and loves to assist in preschool dance classes. She is a Cecchetti Grade II student and a member of the Silver Competition Team. Good luck at competition!

Meara Kingsley –  Junior Dancer - Meara is a graduate of our Fine Arts Preschool Program. She is a talented and dedicated dancer. She is always ready and prepared for class. She works hard and has shown great improvement this year. Can’t wait to watch this dancer in recital.

Annabela Helal – Youth Dancer – Annabela is also a graduate of our Fine Arts Preschool Program. She auditioned for the Mini Dance Team and is doing a great job. She is a good listener and picks up new dance steps easily. I think we will see great things from this dancer!
