2017 Dance Recital Information

Costumes

  • Everything will be included with your costume except proper shoes - if you do not have the appropriate dress code shoes yet, make sure you have them for the recital, the sooner the better. Students cannot perform without proper shoes.
  • We carefully measure all students before ordering costumes and factor in growing room but sometimes costumes still do not fit perfectly (pants need to be hemmed, straps shortened, your child had a huge growth spurt so a leotard needs to be lengthened, etc.). Any necessary adjustments are your ultimate responsibility. We will exchange the costume for you IF appropriate and IF there is time but this is not always possible.

Recital - Saturday June 17th at Edison High School at 4pm

  • Dancers should arrive in costume, with makeup and hair already done at 3:30pm. The show will begin promptly at 4pm.
  • The recital should last approximately two hours. Dancers will need to stay for the entire show. This way all students and families are supporting each other and everyone can participate in the curtain call together. Having been at shows where this is not required, we have seen how crushing it can be for students in the last few numbers to look out and see an auditorium that's only ¼ full.
  • Dancers will stay in the "green room" for the entire show. No parents are allowed in the green room during the show except for green room volunteers.
  • Each Beginnings, Dance Combo, Level I and Level II class will have 1 or 2 designated backstage volunteers for the dress rehearsal and for the recital. To keep things calm and organized, no other parents will be allowed in the "green room" or backstage during the show-we will take great care of your special dancer while you enjoy the show!
  • To ensure the safety of the dancers and the enjoyment of those around you, videography and flash-photography are strictly prohibited during the recital. Only non-flash photography, taken from your ticketed seat is permitted during recital.

Tickets

  • Your tickets can be purchased online, by phone from the ticket vendor, or if you have questions, we can help you in-person at the studio. Please let us know before April 24th if you need special seating accommodations due to physical disability.
  • All tickets are reserved seating and are available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Tickets went on sale on Monday April 24th at 7pm
  • You may now purchase as many tickets as you would like. Prior to May 12th, each family was limited to 8 tickets.
  • Tickets prices are $14.00 for seats in rows A through H and $9.50 for all other seats.

Dress Rehearsal - Thursday June 15th at Edison High School

  • All students MUST be at the dress rehearsal in order to perform in the show. NO EXCEPTIONS. Students need this opportunity to get comfortable dancing in their costume, get familiar with the big stage, get their jitters out, etc.
  • Dress rehearsal is broken into one hour chunks. During that time, the class will run through their dance(s) on stage and practice the curtain call.
  • See the dress rehearsal breakdown for your class's dress rehearsal time. Please arrive 5 minutes early and in costume with hair and make-up done so you are ready to dance.
  • During dress rehearsal, a professional photographer will be taking a class photo of each class as well as individual photos in-costume for anyone who would like to purchase them. Here are some examples of the photographer's work and here is the photo order form. We also have pre-printed forms available at the studio. Order forms with payment must be submitted at dress rehearsal. Individual photos will not be taken without an order form and payment.
  • Videography and non-flash photography are both permitted during dress rehearsal.

DVDs and T-Shirts

  • Professional DVDs are still available for purchase ($40) They will be mailed directly to you by our videographer over the Summer.
  • Recital T-Shirts (with all student names on the back) are still available for purchase ($20). They will be handed out prior to recital and a limited number of extras will be available for purchase at recital.
