Acceptable Student IDs: this or last years school photo ID, a progress report from this or last year, or your class schedule (basically it must be something from your School with your Name and Grade).  *Some of the schools send us a list of their students, we use these as a back up, if you do NOT bring an ID you will be sent to the end of the line until everyone with their ID gets in. Having an ID helps us to get the kids all in faster, which means more dance time for the kids!!!
