October Dance Showcase 2022

Featuring all Ballet Levels, Acro, Tap, Contemporary, 

Pre-Ballet & Teen Ballet

Dear Kat’s Artist Tree Families,

We are excited to announce the dates for our next DANCE SHOWCASE. This performance features Kat’s Classical Ballet, Tap, Acro, Contemporary and more, presenting all original choreography.  


SEPTEMBER 29 @ 5:30pm-7:30pm (Level 4,5,6 end at 8:30)


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1 @ 5:30pm & 7:00pm


All students will be performing in both shows.

We are thrilled to have the chance to celebrate all our students have learned in class and see them shine on stage!  Performances are an exciting and important part of a student’s dance education. Participation is a mandatory part of the dance curriculum. Class attendance is crucial to students feeling confident on stage, and to the success of the entire class. Multiple unexcused absences may result in being removed from the performance at the dance director’s discretion. No refunds will be issued. 


To put on the high-quality performance our students deserve, a performance fee will be processed on 8/31/22. This fee will cover expenses such as costume rental, choreography, music editing, additional staff, etc. Dancers will wear their class dress code as the base of their costume. Additional costume pieces will be rented out for each dance. As a result, you will notice costume fees are lower than previous years. Regular fees and costume purchasing will resume for our Spring Showcase. 

Fees will be tiered according to the number of unique classes an individual student takes:

  • Pre-Ballet = $65 $35
  • 1 class = $75 $45 per student (including Ballet Level III)
  • 2 or more classes = $135 $80 (Including Ballet Levels IV, V, & VI or ex. Ballet & Tap, etc.)

If you need to arrange a payment plan, please contact the front desk.

Additional information about hair & make-up specifics, tickets, and Blu-Ray orders will be coming soon!

Face Masks now Required

We care about the health and safety of all of our students, staff, teachers, and family.  As COVID-19 infection rates continue to rise, we are implementing important requirements to ensure the safety of everyone at Kat’s Artist Tree.

  • Effective June 20, 2020, all staff and students are REQUIRED to wear face coverings (mask or shield) within Kat’s Artist Tree.
  • All parents/non-students are asked to wait in their cars during lessons/classes

Studies have shown that a face covering is the single most effective method of preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  In keeping with our local government mandates, we feel that this is the only responsible way for Kat’s Artist Tree to continue to see students in person.

  • All students still have the option of attending classes online, via ZOOM.  Attendance in person is only an option for families who feel comfortable in this environment and are willing to wear the required face coverings.

Please help us do our part by following these requirements and staying home if you exhibit any symptoms of infection.  On our part, we will continue to step up our cleaning procedures and monitor our staff for symptoms daily to keep everyone safe.

We appreciate the entire community that makes Kat’s Artist Tree such an incredible place and and urge you to stay healthy!

As always, please let us know if you have any questions.
