Fall Harvest Celebration Pictures!
We had a BLAST at our 1st Fall Harvest Bash at the studio! Everyone busted out their best party costumes and danced the night away in neon and glow in the dark lights. Our wonderful parents worked hard on transforming the space and we couldn’t do it without them, thank you Olivia, Brittney, Ciji and Erica for taking extra time to plan such a wonderful event. If you have any more great pictures please e-mail them to Mr. Randall at Randall@dancingrounds.org.
