Solo, Duo, Trio Signups for December

The Solo, Duo, & Trio Signup Genius has been updated with December dates.  As a reminder, this signup will be used throughout the year to book rehearsals for your dancer if she is competing with a solo, duo, and/or trio.    If you have multiple of these dances, make sure that you note on the signup genius, if it is your dancer’s solo, duo, or trio dance to be rehearsed.    Please make sure that only 1 mom or dancer signs up for a given slot for a duo or trio.

As a reminder:

  • Please bring your music to the private lesson.
  • Please book only 1 slot per month, per dancer/dance.   If extra time slots are available later in any given month where a second slot can be booked, you will be made aware.
  • As always, dancers are always free to book an empty room to practice on their own.
