Recital News

It’s time to start planning for the June Recital already!  The recital year’s theme is Fables, Myths and Fairy Tales and will be Saturday June 11th at 2:00 with a mandatory dress rehearsal on Friday June 10th.  Rehearsal times are listed on the recital forms.   Recital Form

The form and process is a little different this year.  When you sign up for the recital, we’re asking that in addition to the $20 recital fee that the costume be paid in advance.  Costumes will only be ordered for students that have paid both the recital fee and costume amoung.

A listing of the costumes for each class will be posted at the studio.  If there are any additional costs e.g. larger sizes, hair accessories, etc., these will be billed later.

We appreciate your willingness to try this new process.  We’re hopeful that this will cut down on some of the paperwork.

The studio is now accepting credit cards to make this new policy more convienent. Credit Card Single Transaction

Spring Studio Closures

The studio will be closed in March for Spring Break and again in May for Memorial Day.  If there is an emergency closure do weather, information will be posted on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/regionalballet
