 OUR END OF SEASON SHOW. Is at the Horn Theater on the campus of the College of Southern Nevada, 3200 E. Cheyenne, N. Las Vegas. Evening performances will be on Sat. July 14th  and Sun. 15th   at 7:00 pm. Based on the size of our school, the theater  only allows for  6 seats per family each night. 1 ticket will be  FREE for the 2nd  night to ensure that at least 1 parent brings the student to both shows as is required. This excludes Combo 3/4 who are only doing one night. Combo 3/4 Saturday 11:00 will do the Sat. show and the Sat. 1:30/Thurs. 3:45 classes will do the Sunday show. Combo 5/6 Tues. 4:00 and Sat 12:00 can do both nights. Tickets will be reserved seating as usual and are still only $12.00 each. Combo 3/4 and then 5/6 numbers will be after the Opening number of the show and you will be able to pick up your child after the 5/6 number. If you wish to stay and watch the rest of the show, your child will also need a ticket at only $8.00. By CSN fire codes, all children 2 years old and up must have a ticket for their own seat. They cannot sit on your lap.

  It would cause great confusion for fellow classmates and ruin their numbers to have students miss any show. Tickets will be reserved seating as usual. 

 TECHNICAL REHEARSALS (Staging, Lighting, running of class numbers) will be held at the theater on Thursday July 12th approximately 12:00-7:00, and/or Friday, July 13th  3:00-5:30. Then at 6:00 on that Friday, the entire school (less Combo classes) is to be back for a 7:00 Dress Rehearsal.

 Combos 3/4 and 5/6 classes rehearsal will be at 5:30 and 5:45 respectively just before their Saturday or Sunday show and then they’ll stay to take part in the main show. The theater will open for seating at 6:30. This rehearsal schedule is subject to minor change. The exact scheduling times and further details will be in a later newsletter.


Please understand that the performance is not mandatory, but we encourage everyone to participate enthusiastically in this special event. The benefits to each student are many. It gives them a chance to be someone special while building confidence, personality, stage presence, teamwork and a sense of great accomplishment.

 LEARNING THE CLASS NUMBERS:  Classes start learning their numbers in March , except class levels III-V, Point II/ III and Tumbling III-IV which start mid-March/April. 

 COSTUMES: Normal costume cost runs from $50-$70 for lower levels and $50.00 to $80.00 for higher levels. Students will require a costume for each class taken. In addition to the costume, some classes may need to purchase accessories (tights, hat, and possibly but rarely, shoes) to complete the look of the costume. We try to keep the cost down as much as possible. NOTE: Costumes are tax deductible if later donated to Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. Most of you will receive your costume list by the beginning of Feb . Combo class pricing is below. A pictorial book of all the costumes will be available for viewing.

                                         There will be breaks, so students may bring snacks.

 As most 10/11 year olds and up have always participated, your costume list will include these additional costs. Please let me know if your child will not be participating so that I may adjust your costume billing.


Commitment:  Once class numbers are being taught, the staff and I must stress the importance of making and keeping commitments.  It puts a great burden on fellow dancers, teachers, and the outcome of the entire show if your child misses classes while the dance numbers are being taught.
