Performance Survival Guide & Important Dates

Dear Parents and Dancers,

We are moving into a very important part of the year. Class attendance is very crucial at this point to ensure the dancers are prepared and ready to shine on stage at the June 12th performance “On Broadway”.

PLEASE READ ALL of the following information (which can also be found on our website under the “PERFORMANCE” tab at


Dancers will receive their costumes in classes the week of May 2nd.

NOTE: We encourage parents of dancers in the Creative Movement, Combo Class or Pre-Level classes to attend the last 15 minutes of class to receive the costume.

If your child is NOT participating in the June 12th performance (and not receiving a costume) we suggest that the parents pick up their dancer 15 minutes early from class.

2. IN STUDIO REHEARSAL: Saturday, May 14, 2016

No costumes are required for this rehearsal. The “In Studio Rehearsal” will be held at West Coast Dance Conservatory. Dancers should be in class attire with proper hair and shoes pertinent to their class dance. Although parents are welcome to come and watch our “studio-run-through”, space is limited and therefore only 1 parent/guardian will be allowed upstairs during rehearsal.
