Fall Parents Week

One parent should attend class with your dancer this week to watch class! We'll also be kicking off our recital fundraiser this week AND sharing this year's recital theme + costumes + song choices for your class!! :)

Please keep attendees to a minimum as space in the studios is limited. Cameras are welcome in class so you can share with friends and family! Expect classes to end early this week to help clear the studios and parking lot.

Holiday Party Week

We'll be celebrating the holidays in class this week! Students must wear a leotard to class, but are invited to pile on the red and green, snowflake tights, Santa hats... anything that makes you feel festive! 

Christmas music may be played during classes in December. If you'd prefer we stick to instrumental versions or general winter songs, please let us know. We want to enjoy the season while still respecting each family's beliefs.

Pajama Week

Students can wear their favorite PJs to class all week! 

*Please remember that we will still be dancing, so PJ dresses should be worn over a leotard or dance shorts for modesty. Students in our acro classes should wear a leotard/ two piece set under their outfits as well since they will still be going upside down (:

Spring Parents Week

One parent should attend class with your dancer this week. We will be discussing important details for picture weekend, rehearsal, and recital. Costumes will also go home this week for all accounts that are up-to-date! 

Classes this week are shorter than normal (to allow for individual questions and to keep the studio and parking lot rotating for the next classes) and are PACKED with information! It’s a fun and busy week, so please come prepared by reading the recital page on the website ahead of time :)

Picture Week

  • Johnston Portrait Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We will be taking pictures in our recital costumes this week. Please refer to your picture week schedule and hair and makeup instructions (discussed at Parents Week and outlined on our recital page) for details about this event. 

Please know that coordinating a schedule for all of our weekly classes is a puzzle, so though we try and keep your picture time slot as close to your normal schedule as possible, times may vary slightly. We appreciate your flexibility during this super fun week!

There will be no regularly scheduled dance classes this week. Our studio will be closed and all operations will be moved to the photo studio.

Proposed Recital Weekend

This is the proposed weekend for STARS Dance Academy's 17th annual recital! Dates and details are subject to change based on the school‘s calendar, but we do everything in our power to keep this date secured!

More details will posted on our recital page this spring, including the rehearsal schedule, hair and makeup specifications, and call times and we’ll discuss all of these details and more during Spring Parents Week (March 23-26).

Two rehearsals and two recitals will be scheduled during this weekend. Depending on the classes your dancer is participating in, they may participate in just two or all four of these events. Until class recital assignments are finalized, we ask that you keep this weekend clear to allow your dancers to fully participate in these events!
