Rehearsals on Saturday, February 20

Just wanted to remind everyone of the Junior Troupe rehearsal on Saturday, February 20, at 4:30 p.m. at the studio. This rehearsal is to learn the Junior Troupe choreography for the end of year show. If you are unable to make Saturday's rehearsal, you will need to let both Colleen and I know. If we don't hear from you and you do not attend rehearsal, we'll assume your dancer is not interested in participating in the Junior Troupe number for the end of year show and he/she will not be included in that number.

Senior Troupe rehearsal will follow at 5:30.
