Show Reminders

Hello everyone!
There are a few reminders we want to send out before class tomorrow!
1. If your child is on the Irish side of the Warriors number (Maddie D, Eva, Nash, Patrick D), they will need an Irish sweater and plain black pants (No colored waist band or design) that they can dance in for the show. If you have an Irish sweater at home, please bring it to class on Wednesday. If not, please contact Carlene. If anyone has an Irish sweater at home who is not in the number, please let us know as well!
2. The "parents" in Lannigan's Ball (Rylan, Patrick D, Maddie D, Madeline Nieter) need to bring in an "old fashioned" adult outfit for our practice tomorrow at 4. The "children" (Maddie G, Cassidy F, Mckenna F, and Emma) need to have a collared white t-shirt for class. We will provide skirts for them.
3. For the Brush Dance number (Brendan, Nash, Patrick, Eli) dancers need to bring in a wood or black colored broom that is light enough to dance with.
4. Costume rentals will be $10 per costume with a max of $30. Fees need to be paid before dancers are allowed to receive their costumes. There will be a $25 late fee if costumes are not left in designated bins after the show.
5. There will be a concessions stand at the show. Any parents willing to donate a baked good, please contact Kim Balzano.
6. Lannigan's Ball will meet on Wednesday from 4-5pm and all dancers participating in the concert are expected to arrive at 5pm.
7. We are trying to start practice for everyone except Lannigan's Ball on Thursday at 4pm. Please contact Carlene with any major conflicts.
8. Tickets are available at the studio for those interested!
9. Dance camp starts Monday! Forms were handed out a few weeks ago, but if your child still needs to sign up, pre-registration forms are available at the studio.
**Please expect practice to run late as these are the last two practices before the recital!**

Update for Class tomorrow

Tomorrow "Warriors" (Eva, Brendan, Rylan, Maddie D, Eli, Patrick, Clara, Nash) will meet at 430pm instead of 5pm. It was discussed with the students in the number at class and was more suitable for the schedules of those involved. Other numbers will still meet at the same time regardless.
