May 15th Recital Time Change – Now 6:30pm

Originally our shows on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at Highland High School were scheduled to be at 1:00 at 7:00 that day.  We need to make a change and now have our shows at 1:00 and 6:30.
Highlands High School prom is scheduled to be at the school at 7:00.  While it is not hosted in any part of the high school that we are using, we are worried about the traffic out front when dancers are trying to get to the show.  We didn’t want our dance families feeling stressed and potentially arriving late to the 7:00 show due to traffic and parking around the school.
We feel that it is in the best interest of our dance families to start our evening show at 6:30 PM.  To reiterate, dancers in our larger show, will dance in two shows on Saturday, May 15, 2021 – 1:00 PM & 6:30 PM.
