Recital Packet

EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED A RECITAL PACKET AND MUST REVIEW IT THOROUGHLY. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW IS IN THIS PACKET!!! IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE I HAVE EXTRA IN THE OFFICE.

 

Students NOT participating in Recital

If your child registered after January 1st, 2018 or you opted out of participating in Recital please read this section. Your child may participate in the Rehearsal only at Durfee (refer to Recital packet for details). During picture week they may come dressed in their favorite dance attire to have a dance picture taken if you wish. Also, if you registered after January 1st please be aware you do not need to pay a registration fee for the 2018-2019 dance season.

 

Unpaid accounts

All accounts need to be paid in full by June 3rd (ticket sales day) or you cannot buy tickets. Please try to pay before ticket day so we don’t take up time doing payments on ticket day.

 

Picture Week

Picture week will be May 14th -19th. On picture day students should bring all costumes, accessories, proper shoes and tights. They will be expected to be in full stage make up and be dressed appropriately at the time of their scheduled picture. Picture orders are to be placed at time of photography. Individual pictures will be taken in between classes. PICTURES ARE OPTIONAL. FOR FAIRNESS TO EVERYONE, IF YOU ARE NOT IN APPROPRIATE DRESS CODE YOU WILL NOT BE IN THE PICTURE. If you are not performing in Recital you may come in and take a picture in your dance attire if you wish but will not be able to participate in the group picture. Please have an idea of what package you want to purchase before you come. REFER TO PICTURE WEEK SCHEDULE IN PACKET OR ON BOARD FOR PICTURE TIMES.

 

Registration Packet

You will all be getting an individual personalized registration packet. Please review the information to make sure it is all correct, pick your child’s classes, and sign off on the attached contracts.  If you register by Recital your fee is only $10 (for dancer and $5 per each sibling) instead of $20! Once you register your child will be placed in the appropriate level class and a schedule will be emailed to you. Next year’s schedule will be posted in waiting room and emailed out to everyone. If you have questions regarding your child’s placement for next year, please see the office for teacher notes. SCHEDULE FOR NEXT YEAR IS AT THE END OF THIS NEWSLETTER.

 

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RECITAL SUPPLIES

 

Garment Bags

Garment bags are great for Competition and Recital to keep everything organized because it will get messy with all the costumes and accessories. I do have garment bags for sale in the office for $25.

 

Hair Nets

All girls will be required to have their buns covered in hairnets. Available in multiple colors.

 

Extras

These items may also be useful for Recital and will be for sale: bobby pins, hair elastics, undertards, and tights.

 

Body Liners or “Undertards”

If your child is concerned with changing in front of others or has an itchy costume you can purchase a nude body suit made specifically to be worn under costumes. Remember NO UNDERWEAR ALLOWED so this may be an option to alleviate that issue as well. Some classes are not eligible to wear undertards; if not you should have been made aware already.
