Show day is almost here! In order to make sure we are as organized as possible on show day, we are asking that you read through the details below so that you know what's going on these next two weeks, where to go and what to do! We are following both the Governor regulations & CDC guidelines on masking so you may see some of our vaccinated teachers, parents and students unmasked. We fully respect your individual choices on vaccination and we are relying on your honesty and integrity in regards to masking. You will be emailed a bunch of information in the next two weeks so please look out for all of the information that is coming your way! A complete info packet will be uploaded to our website be the end of this week so you can have everything you need to know in one place. This is a different type of performance for us... so we really appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this new experience in an outdoor setting at a new venue. We are excited for all of you to see your children perform live, some of you for the first time ever and some of you for the first time in over a year!
