cARTography

INFO FOR PARENTS

Please find information below regarding our Spring Student Performances.  Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions!

What:  cARTography is the title of our June Performances!  Each dance, theatre, and art class participates in this event along with private music students who have studied over one year. This is a very exciting time for students as they are developing and perfecting their creative work for their friends and family.  This is the icing to the cake of hard work all year long!  All students have begun work for the performance.  We sent out Spring performance dates at the beginning of the year and are now well underway with rehearsals.  We have made plans and developed roles for all students to participate in this performance, unless advanced notification from a parent was given by January.  Please make every effort for your child to attend and participate as changing performance plans at this date or later will negatively affect your child’s classmates and the work everyone has been doing.  We are all looking forward to seeing everyone perform!
