Check In Process

Click Here to see the Check In/Out Sheet. The two names that are given to the studio prior to the show date will be the only two names that can pick up or check in a student. Every dancer must be signed in and out. Dancers in the junior and senior classes may sign themselves out if prior approval was granted by a parent, and we have the signature of that parent on file.

Please wait until after the finale to check students out. Tiny Tot and Essential Movement students may be checked out at intermission, however they will then not participate in the finale. If students are not picked up at intermission they will not be able to be picked up during the second half of the show, you will have to wait until the finale.  If you pick up your tiny tot or essential mover at intermission, you may reenter the auditorium to continue watching the show and do not need a ticket for them to enter with you in the show in which they performed.

Diamond-Grams are available for $1 and will be sent to your dancer at intermission during the show. Send them a ‘job well done’, a ‘break a leg’, or an ‘I love you!’ You get to personalize the note and the dancer gets to wear it in the finale along with their recital T-shirt. Let your children, friends, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc. know you’re sending them lots of positivity before they perform. Dancers will wear the Diamond-Grams in the finale around their neck. Every age group is assigned a specific Diamond-Gram color, so make sure you are selecting the appropriate color to ensure its delivery.
