SHOE SALE: Our shoe sale will take place during registration on Wednesday August 30th. We will have both new and used shoes for sale. If you have shoes to donate, please tie them together
and give them to one of the registration volunteers. If you would like to purchase a pair of used shoes, we ask for a $5 donation for each pair of shoes. New shoes will be available to try on at
registration and orders will be available for pick-up the first day of class. Checks for new shoes need to be made payable to Marilyn Schunzel. You may purchase shoes from wherever you
prefer; however, for the recital we require pink ballet slippers, black tap shoes, and tan jazz shoes. Shoe sale will only be available at registration.

RECITAL: The recital date has not yet been finalized. We will provide this information to you as soon as we have it. It is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of May 19, 2018 but this is not yet
confirmed. Rehearsal is tentatively Friday May 18, 2018. 

LOST & FOUND: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put your child’s name in all dance shoes, jackets, dance clothing, dance bags, etc. It is much easier to return items that are left behind at
dance when they are labeled. If your dancer picked up something extra from the last recital please bring it with you so we can attempt to return it to the rightful owner. We will hold items from last
year’s Lost & Found and the recital for one month before we donate everything.
