DAYCARE DANCE FAQ

“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 for class. They will need to purchase a specific pair of jazz shoes for the Recital in May – The Dancewear Boutique at our Baxter Village location and The Dance Bag (8706 Pineville-Matthews Rd, Charlotte, NC 28226) are great local options for purchasing dance wear and shoes.

However, flash photography is not permitted during the performances. No video-taping is permitted during the recitals. Video-taping is permitted during rehearsals only.
