Variety Show: Variety Show Sign-Up will begin NEXT MONTH! If your dancer is interested in performing a solo/duet/trio or gathering a small group of friends for a group dance for our 2014 Variety Show in our recital, you will need to sign up to pick out your practice slot, costume, and give Ms. Abby a copy of your music. Practices are $20/half hour for a solo, $10/dancer per half hour for a duet, $7/dancer per half hour for a trio, or $5/dancer per half hour for a group of 4 or more. Variety Show dancers get to choose their own costume, music, and give input on their dance. This is a great opportunity for those dancers who are looking for a challenge!
