*Meetings are mandatory for parents or guardians of each dancer participating in our recital.

If you are unable to attend one of the following meetings, you must schedule an appointment with Ms Bri to review your recital packet at another time, prior to picking up your costumes. 
*For families with siblings and dancers enrolled in more than one class per week, you may choose ONE meeting to attend. It is unnecessary to attend more than one meeting. Company parents should choose the meeting for your branch of Company.
*Elementary School dancers are discouraged from attending the meetings. If at all possible, parents should plan to attend without their children. Middle & High School dancers who will be attending to their own costume changes, should attend a meeting with their parent.
