The following information is for our 2020/2021 Company team

Company Gear

I will be sizing new company dancers for Company jackets and leggings the week of September 21-24. The following returning dancers have ordered items as well: 

Victoria: Earrings, Alexa, Avery, Gretchen: jackets

If you are a returning company member, need an item and do not see your name, please email me asap and let me know what item you need.

Company Dance Bag: Company Backpacks are a fantastic way to help keep dancers organized. They also help dancers quickly identify their bags! They are $45.  If you would like to order a Company Backpack, please email the studio info@danceacademywest.com ATTENTION COMPANY BAG and include exactly how you want your dancer's name to be spelled. The charge will be placed on your account. The deadline to order is October 15. 

Dancers of Color

If you have not matched your child's skin tone to the swatches, please stop by the front desk during regular office hours beginning September 21 and match up your dancer's skin tone to the swatch so you can order jazz shoes and tights.  Regardless, here is the link for ordering jazz shoes and tights: https://blendzapparel.com/
