The 5 Pointe Dance Company (8 girls and Nathaniel Carter) will have rehearsal at STARS this Saturday morning, April 25, from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. Breakfast will be served beforehand at Mrs. Peterson's at 7:30 a.m.

ALL DANCERS - Due to the extensive amount of work put into this production, we are fortunate to have an opportunity to do an additional performance! The extra performance will be on Friday, May 8, at 7:30 p.m. at the Houston Middle School Gymnasium. If you are unable to attend this performance, please let Mrs. Copling or Mrs. Peterson know ASAP, so that they may get your parts covered.

Also, to clear up any confusion and concern, Cinderella's Fairy Godmother has waved her magic wand and parents and siblings will receive free admission to the Cinderella ballet. All admission collected from the public will go toward offsetting the expenses incurred during the production.
