STUDENT SUMMER DANCE INFO 2019

Practice List -  Routine will be worked in all continuing classes until Cornucopia Days. Coming in late for a Class time is okay. :D

Performance List - Please be ready and on site 45min to 1 hour before the performance time if possible. There will be a private runthrough before the performance. You do NOT have to say in advance you will be performing for Cornucopia or Shimmy Shake and Save Animal Rescue. If you need costume help the best place to ask is..... at ANY practice. Bring what you DO have so we can figure out what you need.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR COSTUME IS NOT SEETHROUGH IN BRIGHT SUNLIGHT! :D But I will have extra pants just in case.
