Learning Through Performance
Performing is an integral part of a student’s education and teaches the process of learning how to rehearse and prepare repertoire.
All students in elementary level classes or higher will have the opportunity to perform, experience working in groups, and to learn to develop a strong, productive and cooperative work ethic.
Pre-Ballet students, learn more about your in-studio Recital HERE!

On performance & dress rehearsal day, students must arrive on time! If late, the child will miss important safety information and therefor may not be able to participate.
Costumes will be given to students the day of the performance and then they are welcome to take them home!
Students will try their costumes on during class time when faculty and staff will assess if any adjustments need to be made. Parents may be asked to help with costume adjustments.
Students must arrive without bright colored nail polish, bandaids, temporary tattoos, etc. to have a uniform, natural look.
*For girls in more than one dance: Arrive to the theater wearing a camisole leotard that matches your skin tone under their dress code leotard. Dancers will wear this for any costume changes.
For ballet classes, hair must be worn in a proper ballet bun for girls, please see bun tutorial HERE! Boys must have long hair pulled back from face in a pony-tail or braided. Hair product should be used, so dancers have no loose hair in their face.
Non-ballet classes will receive instructions on performance hair from their instructor.
For both tech rehearsal and performances, dancers must arrive with hair done. We recommend practicing your child's hair for classes.
Simple make-up must be worn so we can see the dancers' faces under our performance lights. Please see the helpful "How to Apply Stage Makeup to Children" tutorial HERE.
For both tech rehearsal and performances, dancers must arrive with make-up done. We recommend practicing your child's make-up before the performance.
Wearing a mask for the performance is optional. If wearing a mask, it is required to be a flesh colored mask that matches their skin tone as close as possible. We recommend purchasing your child's mask from our dress code provider Grand Prix, but any brand is acceptable.
