Fall Festival Week: Sharing Joy

Announcing Our First-Ever Fall Festival Week

MONDAY, OCTOBER 26 - SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2015

As the weather begins to cool and the leaves change, all we need to do to be reminded of God's majesty and greatness is to look outside at His incredible art work. During our Fall Festival Week, students are invited to join us in a celebration of joy and thankfulness - for we know not only that God is a master Creator and Artist, but also that He has demonstrated His love for us that we don't deserve:

"but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Bring a Friend

During Fall Festival Week, students in Children's Dance Division and Youth Dance Division classes are invited to share joy by bringing a friend to class. Friends are welcome to attend class and to participate as much as they can. Friends can wear dance attire if they have it, otherwise we recommend something that allows for movement (no jeans) and socks. 

Dress Joyfully

During Fall Festival Week, dress code requirements will be relaxed and students in all divisions are invited to dress joyfully! Students are encouraged to dress fun, colorful, creative, or even a little crazy. 

Children's Dance Division

Here are some ideas on how Children's Dance Division students can dress joyfully:

  • Wear a brightly-colored bow, ribbon or other hair decoration
  • Wear your favorite ballet costume or ballet skirt
  • Wear a brightly-colored t-shirt
  • If you'd like, dress up as your favorite princess, hero, superhero or role model

When dressing up, make sure that you still have freedom of movement to complete your regular class! You'll still need to wear your ballet tights (or shorts for boys) and your ballet shoes to class, with hair pulled back away from your face. 

Youth Dance Division

Here are some ideas on how Youth Dance Division students can dress joyfully:

  • Wear a brightly-colored bow, ribbon or other hair decoration
  • Wear a colored shirt or patterned pants
  • Wear crazy socks under your jazz shoes
  • If you'd like, dress up as your favorite hero, superhero or role model

When dressing up, make sure that you still have freedom of movement to complete your regular class!

Pre-Professional Program

In the Pre-Professional Program, students are invited to join the fun - with a few limitations given the requirements of intermediate and advanced ballet classes! Students will still be required to wear a leotard, pink ballet tights and pink ballet shoes to all ballet classes like usual. Hair should also still be in a tight hairstyle away from the face. However, students may: 

  • Wear colored leotards
  • Add hair decorations to buns
  • Wear a tight hairstyle away from the face (not necessarily a bun - think double buns, braids, etc.)
  • Wear wrap skirts in pointe classes
