CHRISTMAS DANCES & PARTIES – DECEMBER 5-8: All the classes, with the exception of Ballet V, are working on special Nutcracker/Christmas dances to present to their families the week of December 5-8 during their regular class time. Attendance is very important as classes are working on their dances!!! After the class Nutcracker performances, classes after 3:00 will meet outside the upstairs ballet studio for their Christmas party. Classes before 3:00 will meet in the Uptown Auditorium.
What to Bring to the Party: We need one mom from each class to bring drinks (small water bottles or juice boxes work great). All classes have volunteers for drinks - thank you!
ALL other moms should bring some type of snack/finger food for the girls and guests to enjoy...NO popcorn and no peanut-related foods.

This is a fund raiser for our school and company, so please consider purchasing as a Christmas or birthday gift for the dancer in your family.
