 Dance Gala 2021

The Gala performed at the end of the dance year is a culmination of all the efforts and hard work that has been put forth during the dance year.  The performance is usually held at the end of June/early July - the specific date is dependent on the "school calendar" , dates of graduation & public health/safety.  Information regarding the exact date and rehearsals for the 2020 dance gala will be posted as soon as they are confirmed.  If you have any concerns or impending conflicts, please notify Miss Susan as soon as possible.  The dance gala is tentatively scheduled to be performed at the CM Performing Arts Center - The Noel S Ruiz Theater in Oakdale, NY

 

DRESS CODE


At Dance Sensation we do not enforce a specific “studio” uniform, for it is our belief that it is the child’s hard work and determination that makes him/her a dancer, not his/her clothes. However, it is necessary for Dance Sensation to apply a dress code guideline for the 2020-2021 dance year. It is important that students wear proper attire to dance classes in order to receive the best class possible in their selected dance genre. Take special note of the shoe color for each class as it will be most helpful when the recital season arrives. Please refer below for the proper dress code for each class.

Dance Gala 2019, Miss Maria Bazilevskaya

  IMPORTANT INFO:

For All Classes

Hair MUST be tied back in a ponytail or bun...hair is not allowed to be left down. Please do not wear loose or "dangly" jewelry. Do not wear loose clothing as it makes it impossible for the teacher to see the students' body and make proper corrections. Please remember that dance shoes should be purchased "to fit", not "for room to grow"! Shoes that are too small or too big greatly hinder a student's progress.
