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.
