EARLY RELEASE VOUCHER: Our recital dates are posted in September.
This allows parents time to plan in advance to ensure their child’s
participation in the dance recital. Sometimes however, conflicts do arise. In
these cases, we use a voucher system for those who need to leave early.
Therefore, if your child is unable to participate in the entire performance, a
voucher must be obtained from the office, filled out and returned to the office
prior to May 8th. This early release voucher format is taken to ensure the
safety of all children. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD.
“Babes-In Arms” Policy: In consideration of our entire student
body and their families, and in compliance with Fire Codes, we
must firmly request that families with small children (infants and toddlers on
laps and in carriages) make prior child care arrangements for their youngest
children, as we cannot admit “babes-in-arms” to the recitals. We realize that
you may wish to bring your youngest children, but we are governed by
circumstances beyond our control.
Professional PHOTOGRAPHY: Students may have their picture taken in
costume by a professional photographer on Picture day at the studio. Date for 2013 TBA
RECITAL NOTE TO PARENTS: Students have worked hard to make this performance
“special”. Without the cooperation and support of parents this
experience would not be the success that it is for your child. As we have in
the past, let’s continue to encourage our children so that they will find
reward in their efforts.
