Red Leotard Dance Debut!
This was a historic day for us as our brand colour leotards graced the dance floor for the first time. Though the red leotard has been used by our tap, gymnastics and adults dance teams for quite some time, this day is the first day that it has been used as part of our largest series of classes - our Children's General Dance Program - making this uniform staple streamlined across the board. Looking sharp!
