Spring Concert:

Classes will be taught 2-3 dances for participating in the Spring Concert.  Dancers must attend class throughout the season in order to learn the movement required for them to dance with their class.  In order to participate in the Spring Concert attendance at 70% of the classes should be used as a guideline.  If the teacher feels that a student may have missed excessive amounts of class and are unable to learn the movement, parents may schedule with the teacher additional times for dancers to learn necessary steps for the Concert.  Additional fees may apply for these classes.
