Dancer of the Month Tickets
We have started a new incentive program for our students where they can be recognized for their hard work, dedication and positive attitudes! Teachers may give out tickets to students at the end of class for them to write their name on and put in the jar in the office. At the end of each month we will draw a name from each of the three age divisions as the dancers of the month! Those dancers will have their picture posted on the wall and will receive a studio t-shirt! We hop dancers will be working hard and listening well in class for a chance to win the "Dancer of the Month" title!
