How To Prep Your Costume


NOTE: Registration for the 2018 Winter Performance has closed. Your next chance to dance on stage will be June 2019. Check back with us Jan/Feb 2019

Each June and December our Small Frys have the opportunity to take the stage and show off what they have been working on in class. Our performances are designed to be stress free for both your dancer and the entire family. Your dancers will be on stage for the entirety of the performance, which will last roughly 30 minutes. It’s a great way to expose your little one to the stage and boost their confidence.

Who is eligible?
Any dancer that is currently enrolled in a Dance & Performance class is eligible to register. The recital is optional and we do have a limited number of dance spots available.

Please note, participating in the show is optional but the costume for this performance entails us placing a large group order, hence the early performance registration deadline.  All interested families will need to order costume pieces through Small Fry Dance Club.

Also participating in the show is optional, but very fun!

Although we have a 6-week registration period shows do fill up.  Once a show hour reaches 33 performers we will close the show. You can only add your dancer to a show wait-list if they are signed up for an alternate hour.   Wait-listing for this purpose means you would like to move to a different show hour.  Everybody on a waitlist is in the show. We simply switch your hour if space becomes available in your primary time choice.  The changes tend to happen close to show day if at all.

It is also a good idea to have your Small Fry start wearing their shoes to class 2-4 weeks before show time.

I recommend purchasing ballet slippers from Dance Theatre shop.

Make up-Wearing make up to the show is also up to you and your dancer. It is common to enhance features, so dancers can be seen on stage. For example; lips and blush. You can decide as a family when you want to add this element.

Please note, failure to follow costume and footwear requirements will result in ineligibility for participation in future shows. If you have any questions, please ask.

Need a dance class but not under age 5? PCPA is our dance program for ages 5 to adults.

PCPA is a creative and performing arts program that requires dancers to be both athletes and artists. Our ultimate goal is to instill dance intensity and drive inspired by much more than trophies and sequins. We believe in building strong fundamentals, technique, and discipline through dance training and performance experience. You can count on building a respect and love for dance whether you are training for personal or professional goals.
