Spring Recital General Informaton

Pictures and Video Taping

All pictures and videos of your own should be taken at dress rehearsal only. It is distracting to the audience and dangerous to the dancers when the auditorium lights are down for the performance.


Recital DVD’s

All recitals will be taped by Acentric Video and mailed. Orders will be taken at dress rehearsal & shows.


Recital Etiquette

IMPORTANT NOTE: During the recital, please remember that there is no coming and going between numbers. We will only release children at the end of the show. Groups 16,17 & 18 will be released at intermission and Groups19 and 20 will be released after their Jazz number.


Rental Costumes

All rental items will be given out and collected at dress rehearsal and the recital. Do not take any rental items home because other students need them for our other shows.


Costume Information

At dress rehearsal and the recital, please have students dressed for their first dance as much as possible. Their hair and make-up should be done! Please bring extra bobby pins and safety pins. On most styles of costumes, you need to criss-cross the straps in the back and safety pin them to the back of the costume. DO NOT SEW ON. Make sure all mitts are tight enough to stay on your child (pin or elastic band). If you receive a colored ribbon for the tap shoes, make a bow with the ribbon and attach to a tap-tie-button (can be purchase at studio $1). This will make changing faster and easier backstage.

We cannot emphasize enough - EVERYTHING (including costume pieces) should be labeled with your child’s first and last name and show number. Use a brown paper bag with your child’s name, group & show number listed for all costume pieces, shoes and tights for performance.


Make-Up & Hair

Make-up should include a red lipstick, dark brown eye shadow, mascara and eyeliner (on little ones mascara and eye liner are optional). All pre-teen and performing groups should wear a base make-up. Please DO NOT send make-up backstage!!

Hair, if worn down, should be worn back away from the face or secured. We prefer buns or french braids. Special styles will be discussed in the parent meetings to accommodate hats or other things they will be wearing as part of their costume. Please do not wear watches, earrings, or any other jewelry.


Important

DO NOT BRING VALUABLES BACKSTAGE. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items like, (IPod, video games and phones.)
