(We will meet in the high school parking lot between 3:45 and 4:00) We will not have classes on this day. The parade will end at Magnolia Springs Assembly of God. This is where you need to pick up your child after the parade. Everyone participating in the parade must wear our 2016-2017 Charcoal Gray T-Shirt (this includes parents/guardians joining us in the parade.) These are the SAME t-shirts that all Tumbling, Hip Hop and Cheer/Tumble Classes are required to wear as part of their dress code. They are $18 each and must We have already made several orders and our FINAL order is due Thursday, October 6th! Students will also want to bring their own throws (candy, beads, stuffed animals etc.) Dancers can wear any comfortable pants/shorts/leggings with their stepping out fall t-shirt and comfortable shoes. (NO DANCE SHOES) Perform Class will get their dress code and information in their classes. If anyone has a trailer and truck and they would like to volunteer to drive in the parade please let us know!


**Costume Deposits are due by October 13th ($50 per each dance)**

 This deposit is the majority of the cost of the costume. Costumes range from $55-$100 depending on the class. If you can not pay the entire $50 deposit please make some type of payment so that we know that you will be participating and will need a costume. Balances will be sent home later and will be due in November. "Miss Chrissy" will begin measuring for costumes in the next few weeks so please be sure to wear your leotard and tights to ensure a more accurate measurement (if that is the dress code for your class.)
