Dress Code

Leotards and tights must be worn for all classes. No pants or baggy shorts will be permitted, except for our male students. Without leotards, the line of the body does not show, which is necessary to train students to dance. Please do not come to class with sweatshirts or T-shirts over the leotards. Your teacher will ask you to remove them. Ballet students intermediate and up must wear a black leotard and pink tights. Hair must be pulled back from the face for all classes. Proper dance shoes must be worn in dance class.

Dance Recital

The annual dance recital takes place in the month of June at the Palace Theatre in downtown Canton. Students are not required to participate in the recital, although most students do.


Kickline is our Rockette-style opening number to our dance recital and is by invitation only, to our Tap students.

Visiting Day

We will have visiting day three times a year. Generally they are in October, January, and March.

Take the Stage Competition Team

For the student who would like more performance opportunities, we compete at four regional and invitational competitions per season.
