  • Please bring a small snack and water bottle. There are no drinking fountains at the studio.
  • We recommend that the kids wear black jazz shoes. They will wear these for the performance and throughout the rehearsal process.  You can purchase them at Fancy Dancer , Academy, or Payless. (If you do not have them on the first day, it is okay!
