Dress attire

Very Important — All Dancers are required to bring a water bottle. The water at the studio is provided from a water well which includes reclaimed water. As a result, it does not meet the sanitation requirements for drinkability. All dancers will be required to bring a water bottle with their name on it. The water is safe for all other TurnOut purposes!

Ballet, Lyrical, Pointe, and Tumbling — Leotards or sports bras are required. Tights and snug-fitting shorts are optional. Hair is to be tied away from the face and neck.


Jazz, Pom Pons, and Tap — Same as above, jazz pants may be worn. Snug-fitting attire is appropriate.


Shoes — If your child is enrolled in Technique, Barre, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, or Poms, your child will need shoes for these classes. To order shoes from the studio, please attend one of our open houses for sizing and ordering. We will NOT order shoes after the open house.

Important information for parents

"My daughter has been a dancer at Tracey & Heather for 6 years. Dancing here has not only exposed her to mainstream styles of dance, like jazz and contemporary, but also a style of hip-hop you really only see on TV and in the movies.


She has grown as a dancer through both recreational classes and competition team. She has made friends with a very diverse group of kids – all with a common passion – dance!


As a parent, I appreciate the variety of dance styles and class options for students, as well as the opportunity for competition dancers to take master classes with well-known choreographers in the dance industry.  


Dancing at Tracey & Heather has provided my daughter with the chance to learn, grow, and shine in an activity she loves!"


- Tricia Broughton


The combination of the two studios has allowed me to grow in different ways than I would have if the studios remained separate. For example, through the change I have become a better dancer because I have gotten comfortable with learning in new ways from different types of teachers. It has also helped me grow as a student in my technique and stage presence, by taking me out of my comfort zone. By the studios combining it has allowed me to make new friends that I would have not made if we hadn't combined. The studios combing has helped me achieve things, as a dancer, that I would have never thought possible.


- Hailey Storm

We have 25 years of combined experience.


If a dancer is going to miss class, please call the studio at 217-816-3888 and leave a message. Please do not send a dancer to class if he/she is sick.
