Dancer Spotlight: Chantel Zucchero – 10 Year Student
Chantel started dancing at 2 years old, and is now 13! She loves to learn new dance choreography and meeting new people through dance. Chantel also enjoys art, animation, and singing. So far, the best part of her experience with 5678 is the many friends she’s made along the way. She has especially enjoyed her time on the Fierce Fleet Team and Showstopper Team. Her favorite dance was “Cruella de Vil” because of the creative choreography, and her favorite recital was 2019’s “A Moment In Time” because it was so inspiring. Chantel says that 5678 has benefited her life because dancing helps her build confidence and she enjoys being a part of a team. In the future, Chantel wants to be an English or History teacher!
Dancer Spotlight: Ella Duran - 10 Year Student
Ella is 14 years old and started dancing with 5678 when she was 3 years old. Outside of dance, she enjoys arts and crafts, skateboarding, and playing ukulele! Ella says her reason for dancing is that it “gives [her] something fun to do.” She likes that it keeps her body strong! The best part of dance for her is performing on stage each year. Ella says that all the teachers are kind, but her favorite teacher is Miss Jess because she’s great at showing her how to improve her dancing. Ella’s favorite dance was “Star Wars” from our 2020 Recital “Time After Time” because she was finally in Pointe class! In the future, Ella isn’t decided on her career, but she is considering becoming an artist or a chef/baker.
Recital Costume Arrival
All Recital Costumes have been ordered and will be arriving in the next few months. Once the costumes arrive, our team checks each costume to make sure it has everything, puts the costume on a hanger and into a garment bag, adds the tights & camisole (if ordered), and labels it for each dancer.
How will you know when your costume arrives?
When your child’s costume has arrived, you will receive an email from us letting you know it is at the studio and ready for pick up. Please note that an adult must come and sign off for the costume.
What do I do if I didn’t order tights?
If you didn’t order tights when you ordered your costume, you can purchase them at The Dance Bag in McHenry Village. All dancers need the same style, brand, and color tights for recital.
