CompPointePicture Days March 8 & 9

(there will be no classes on these days)

In order for everything to run smoothly, please be in costume and ready 15 minutes before your scheduled time and wait in the lobby area of the studio for your group to be called in. Please be aware that picture schedules have run ahead of schedule in the past.

You will receive a picture proof immediately after your class picture has been taken. You will be able to take this home to decide what you would like to purchase, then return it with the order form and payment to the studio by NOON MARCH 16th. If orders are not turned in by this due date, you will have to mail your order with payment to the company at the address on the order form.

The photography company does numerous other dance studio pictures and have their schedule set for printing. Please cooperate with them by turning in your order on time. Also new this year, the photography company will be mailing your orders directly to you instead of having them come to the studio for you to pick up. Please make sure you have your mailing address on the form.

View the Picture schedule and please note class picture times.

Father/Daughter Routine 2013

Our annual father/daughter dance is kicking off once again! We are offering this to dancers who are 8 years old & up. All dancers and dads participating must attend four rehearsals (includes dress rehearsals), which will start in May to learn the routine. The theme this year is American Bandstand and the costume for this dance will be something you already own or can borrow. Each father/daughter couple will only perform in one of the three recital performances. Any father interested in participating must come to the first rehearsal to sign up. There will be no charge for this again this year.
