Dear Dancers and Parents,

This is your information packet for Recital and Dress Rehearsal. Please read it carefully,

and hang on to it. There will be five recitals this year; one on Saturday, May 21 at 7:00

pm, and four on Sunday, May 22. The Sunday recitals will be at 2:00, 3:00, 5:00 and

6:30. All DRESS REHEARSALS ARE ON SATURDAY, May 21 at Ridgeview High

School.(no classes at studio that day) If your child(ren) is/are in more than one recital,

when you receive tickets, you will be given a ticket for each recital that they are in.(Your

recital fee entitles you to 6 tickets for each recital your dancer is in.) Additional tickets

this year will be $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children 12 and under. They may be

purchased at the studio, and at the door. Dress rehearsal and all performances will be held

at Ridgeview High School. If you do not need all of your tickets, it is greatly appreciated

if you turn in what you will not use as seating is limited at Ridgeview. You must pay

your $35 recital fee in order to receive tickets.

Please arrive for Dress Rehearsal at least fifteen minutes prior to your rehearsal time. If

you are late, we cannot wait for you, and your child will miss their rehearsal!!! Please

arrive with hair and make-up done, in costume. If your child is in more than one number,

please check and double check that your dancer has all pieces of their costume,

including appropriate tights, shoes, headdresses, accessories, etc!!! Please have your

child’s name on their dance bag, whether written or pinned on. Have their names on

their shoes and costume pieces as well.

All dancers should wear stage make-up. For Ladies – bright red lipstick, black mascara &

liner, brown or gray eye shadow. Blush should be earth to red tones, no pink – it doesn't

show on stage. Gentlemen, it's a good idea to use some bronzing powder so you don't

fade out under the lights. Also some brown pencil to define eyes & lips, no pinks or reds

for gentlemen. All Ladies, hair in slick unparted medium height buns, as many hairpins

and bobby pins as it takes. You must use hair-nets. Lots of spray & gel. No wispies!!

Ballet dancers should have clean, pink, non-shiny tights and shoes(except for

gentleman)Ladies' hair must be up in slick buns – no bangs, or braids!! Pre Ballet, and

Pre Tap students wear pink tights. If you have a quick change that involves different

color tights, for example tan to pink(jazz to ballet)or vice versa, underdress. Wear the

second pair of tights underneath the first. There are a LOT of quick changes this year.

No jewelry for recital. Leave it home, if you wear it, you will be made to take it off!

NO nailpolish!

Parents are not allowed backstage. We will have a number of qualified adults, in addition

to the faculty to assist students with costume changes. Stay in the audience and enjoy

your child’s performance. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to recital. If for some reason

the previous recital is still going on, you must wait in the lobby until the current recital is

over, and those students are dismissed to check in.

Peter Pan Schedule

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for bearing with me this past weekend.  Thanks to those who were able to brave the rain/floods, and hopefully everyone else will get caught up next rehearsal.  We made great progress on the first Neverland scene!
It has been brought to my attention that some folks are seeing the dates/times differently within the rehearsal schedule I originally sent out.  I believe this is because people are viewing it on their phones, and the formatting is affected; since it was an attached Word document formatted into a table, this is creating glitches when you open it up on your phone to view, depending on your operating system, and dates/times may look off.
If everyone could please print out the schedule or view on a computer and refer to that (perhaps adding the dates/times into your phone’s calendar by hand) I think we’ll all be on the same page. Mary Ruth has printed and posted the schedule for the rest of Oct and Nov at the studio as well. I have attached it again for those who may no longer have that email.
Let me know if you have questions.  Thanks again, and remember:   Next weekend there is NO Peter Pan rehearsal due to the dance convention being held at the studio.
Have a great week!

Classes resume Monday October 12th, 2015

We WILL resume classes Monday, October 12th.(barring any further disasters)Please pray for everyone today as it rains again. If you have difficulty attending due to road conditions, school delays, etc.., please be aware that there is NO time limit on make up lessons.

Studio will remain closed for the remainder of the week. Saturday the competing company will have technique followed by rehearsal.

The studio will remain closed for the rest of the week for regular classes.

The competing company WILL have company technique Saturday morning, followed by rehearsal.

Peter Pan rehearsal WILL be held.

We will add one week of classes at the end of the year to make up for this week.

Thank you.

I hope everyone is recovering from this catastrophic event. I know some families have been affected more than others.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Ms. Debra
