Parent Watch Weeks

Nov 13 to 18 - Daniel, Kristy, Jolie, Jacques

Nov 20 to 25 - Alyssa, Kim, Emily, Chantel

During parent watch weeks, parents are invited to come in for the last 15 minutes of choreographed classes to see what their child has been working on and the progress they’ve made.  For Jacque’s ballet technique classes ONLY, parents are invited to stay for the entire ballet class. 

We ask that only ONE parent come to watch during classes after 4:00pm and on Saturdays.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we have limited space at SBS during these weeks.  We understand that this schedule is not perfect for every family so please do your best.  Some juggling is acceptable.
