Just because this is a unique situation with me directing the dance show and now being their longterm sub for their intermediate and advanced dance classes till the end of the year. By having results after the show, it will minimize the amount of gossip or ill feelings for those not selected. I want the show to run smoothly without squabbles over dance team results (if that makes sense).

Any athletic wear that is comfortable to move in and does not hide their body/lines (i.e. no sweat pants, baggy shirts or sweatshirts)
