COSTUMES:Costumes are arriving and we're sorting them to be sure they're ready to distribute at the end of May.

If your class is wearing tights, we've ordered those for you and will be included when you pick them up. You are responsible for trying on your costume and any alterations that may need to happen.

Important Recital Reminders
It's REALLY important your dancer be in class every week from now through the recital to make sure they're prepared!
You can find your dancer's costume photos and shoe, hair and make-up requirements in the documents listed below!
Our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document is linked below. It has everything you will ever want to know about our recitals!
WE WILL NEED MANY BACKSTAGE VOLUNTEERS!! This is a great way to give back to our community and get to watch your dancer free, from backstage. You can volunteer for a show your dancer is in and be with them backstage, or in one they aren't, so you can sit in the audience. There's a bunch of different roles - keep an eye out for an email in the next few weeks with more info!

PICTURE DAYS - June 11 & 12: See the 'RDC 2022 Picture Day Schedule Combined' link below to find your classes specific picture time slot. We hire a professional photographer to come in and take photos of your dancers in their costumes. Your dancer's class is assigned a picture time slot on June 11th or 12th. All dancers will take individual photos and a class photo without masks. You're under no obligation to purchase them until you view them. You'll be able to order online a few weeks after picture days. Dancers should arrive already in their costumes/tights/shoes, with their hair and make-up (optional) done. We will NOT wait for anyone so if you're late or miss your time slot, you will miss your pictures. Picture Days are not mandatory, but it's a great way to document your dancers year!
