Home for the Holidays
Our fall semester recital is a festive performance of holiday themed dances, telling the story of Clara and her magical holiday journey, where toys come to life, snowflakes dance through the forest, and we celebrate the holidays with different cultures from around the globe! This is performed by all of our DHDC students (company and recreational), with each class presenting a different dance in the show. All DHDC students are enrolled and billed for our Holiday Show September 15th. If you do not plan on participating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org prior to October 1st. ALL holiday show fees are due no later than October 1st.
We need parent volunteers to make our shows happen! View our volunteer sign up: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0A4FA8AE28AAFE3-dhdc4.
Costume hand out week will be December 3rd - 9th. Please plan on coming in the last 15 minutes of class to help try on and collect your dancer's costume. Holiday show costumes belong to DHDC, and must be returned to the costume return bags in dressing rooms immediately following the show. Dancers must provide their tights and shoes needed based on individual classes.
