Dance Company Of Madison19 Hughes Rd, Madison, AL 35758
Owned & directed by Beth Cannon and Julie George, our goal at the Dance Company is to provide the best dance instruction available in a positive environment. We only hope that dance can bring you a small measure of the happiness and joy that it has brought to us. Our team of instructors and support staff look forward to working with you and/or your child. Recital Participation in the recital is optional, however, we feel that stage performance is a very important part of the student's dance training. It is the time when you are able to see and appreciate the advancement of your child's dance ability. By participating in the performance, the students will learn how to follow stage directions, gain stage presence and develop confidence in their abilities. Costumes Costumes are required for those students participating in our annual dance revue. Parents, you are responsible for verifying your childs size to be ordered as well as indicating if you wish a costume ordered or not. (This is done during parents week when you visit your childrens classes.) Costume fees, as follows are due by October 3rd. Stage Arts - $53.95, 5 year combo - $56.95, elementary levels - $59.95, all levels intermediate and up - $65.95.
