Recital Update

Categories: News

RECITAL UPDATE This is general information.  Details on the recital page and in your emails!

COSTUME INFORMATION

HAIR:          All hair pulled up to a BUN, no bangs.  Slick bangs back with a combination of hair gel, water and hairspray.  Bangs can be braided into hair to keep them back.  Hair nets can be used to secure buns. (Any exceptions are on your costume notes with your costumes)

MAKEUP:   All performers will need to wear stage makeup.  The suggested colors are: EYES:  Lavender/violet BLUSH:  rose  MASCARA:  black  LIPS:  rose  CLEAR NAIL POLISH!!  No jewelry, rings, earrings, necklaces, watches or hair accessories except costume accessories.

*Our recital is scheduled for Saturday, May 22nd at West Elementary School @ 1:00 p.m.  Admission is free.  The performance usually lasts 2 hours.  Dancers need to arrive no later than 12:40 p.m. –come in your first costume–hair and makeup ready to go–wear cover-up over costume–meet in your dressing room. 

*Pre-tap 3-4, Tap 5 and Ballet 5 dancers don’t have to arrive until Intermission. Please arrive no later than 1:50 p.m. You’re are more than welcome to arrive earlier. I know sitting through an entire show can be extremely difficult for that age group so hopefully sitting through only half will be way easier! We will mark off seats for only parents bringing these dancers to make sure you get seats at intermission because we usually have a full house!

*Audience seating is general admission.  The house opens at 12:30 p.m.  Parking is on the streets near the auditorium.  Carpool if possible.  We have a nice auditorium with bad parking.  You can drop off guests at the West entrance, which also serves as the handicapped entrance.

*There will be no entry at the door facing the playground. (Our backstage door)

*Dancers will stay backstage with their class through the entire recital. 

*Please send a quiet project with your child.

*We will have an encore number after the finale to safely get the dancers back to their dressing rooms.   Please stay seated in the auditorium until after that performance, and then send one adult to pick up the dancer backstage.  We are trying to reduce traffic backstage after the show! 

*Put your name on your shoes, costume and accessories. 

*Please, no flash photography at the rehearsal or recital.  It is dangerous for the dancers.

*During the recital if you need to enter or exit the auditorium, please do so between numbers.  Please pass this information to your guests before the dance performance.

*DVD’s will be for sale at the studio, the rehearsal and at the dance performance.  Order forms at the studio.

*Please, double knot your dance shoes if you have ties. 

*Remember, no underwear—tights only, please. 

*If you don’t have buckle tap shoes, please have elastic in tap shoes. 

*Tap and jazz shoes should be black. Ballet shoes should be pink.

*Please sign up if you want to help backstage.

*Costume and tuition balances must be paid in full before the dancer will be allowed to participate in the recital.

REHEARSAL:

*Rehearsal is at West Elementary School on Friday, May 21st. Please arrive at rehearsal on time or 10 minutes early, we usually run ahead of schedule.

*Rehearsal is a dress rehearsal. Please come in your first costume. Hair and make-up done. Correct shoes. Etc..

*Each dance gets 10 minutes to rehearse on the stage. You only have to be there for your time slot!

*Please have all dancers meet at the side entrance to the stage (in the hallway). You can watch in the auditorium after we have your dancer. 😊

THIS YEAR:

*We will be blocking off every other seat in the auditorium to help with spacing.

*You can still invite whoever you want to recital this year!!

*We will have to wear masks while in the auditorium.

*We will have hand sanitizer at all entrances.

*There is a waiver sent out I need back from every student. It says that you understand the protocols we are taking to keep everyone healthy. As well as agreeing that you will not enter the public school if you have any symptoms or chance of being sick. You are signing this waiver for yourself, your dancer, and anyone you invite to the recital.
