“Daycare Dance” is our off-site dance program that brings the Miller Street dance experience to you at your Preschool!

Students may wear comfortable clothes they can easily move in. They are not required to wear dance clothes or shoes to class. Students will need to have dance shoes for the recital in May – exact style will be announced later in the year. The Dance Bag (8706 Pineville-Matthews Rd, Charlotte, NC 28226) is a great local option for purchasing dance wear and shoes.

Dancers will receive their costume during class on April 21st. This is a great opportunity to see your dancer in their costume for the first time! Don’t forget to bring your camera! Accounts must be up-to-date and in good standing prior to receiving your dancer’s costume.
Each show is 1.5-2 hrs.
For general safety reasons, we insist that all performers remain backstage during both the dress rehearsal and recital performances. We have plenty of staff backstage to keep your dancers entertained while they wait for their dance.
Your dancer does not have to wear makeup to dress rehearsal. We do recommend some makeup for the recital so the stage lighting does not make dancers appear “washed out.”
We do not hire a professional photographer to take pictures during the rehearsals and recitals. You are welcome to take pictures of your dancers from your seat only. However, flash photography is not permitted during the performances. No video-taping is permitted during the recitals. Video-taping is permitted during rehearsals only.
Yes. Order forms will be included in the packet you will receive during Spring Parent Observation Week.
Yes! All dancers that participate in recital receive a trophy! Trophies will be passed out at the end of the recital. Limit one trophy per dancer.
After November 1, costumes are non-refundable and non-transferable. A student that withdraws from a class after purchasing a costume may pick up the costume between June 12 and June 24. Costumes not picked up by June 24 will be donated.
