You’re invited to come see your child in the studio!! The observations are held during class time and this year they will be divided up between the last two weeks of January to avoid over crowding.
Some Rules: We ask that no more than two adults attend as classroom space is limited. If you must bring a toddler, please be aware that if they become disruptive or noisy they must be removed from the studio. We also ask that all cell phones and devices be turned off. This is to ensure that children are given your full attention and are provided with a quiet environment to perform.
