Why is the age cut off set on Sept. 1st, 2018?

Like the school system we have learned that dancers learn the best when they are grouped together with students at their same age level. It is also important (especially for our younger classes) that the class have a small age range. We have also learned that this helps all of our dancers have a successful recital.


Is there a dress code?

Yes. Students are required to purchase their tights and shoes from DbD Studios. Leotards and more are available for purchase as well. You can find more details here.


Is there a recital?

YES! Our recital is scheduled for May 18th & 19th 2019 at The Brauntex Theatre in New Braunfels. Students are encouraged to perform but not required. Find all of the important dates here. *Carolyn’s Cuties, Dance Team Prep, and SSLT do not perform in the recital.
