  • Dancers will need a water bottle, *"Ballet Barre Sleeve"/paper towel roll (if they have ballet), and dance shoes. 

    • *Ballet Barre Sleeve- You may cut a paper towel roll lengthwise or bring a piece of fabric that can be taped or Velcroed over the barre.

  • The shoes dancers arrive in will be left in the hallway outside of the studios and will not be permitted inside the studios.
