The summer dance schedule is now available, registration is open. During the summer we will have 6 weeks of class but classes will meet twice a week. We end the summer with a showcase which is free to all who attend. Fall registration will be in the beginning of August, the schedule will be emailed to you in July. Please update your email address with us if it has changed.
Everyone should have their dress rehearsal time for Saturday, June 2nd at UW Whitewater, Young Auditorium. This means you must be dressed and in the auditorium at the scheduled time. We schedule 5-6 dances per half hour so your dancer should practice within 30 minutes of the scheduled time. If you choose you may come early or stay late to watch other dances. The dress rehearsal day is the only time your child may sit in the audience, on show days they stay in the dressing room during the entire performance. We allow only ONE ADULT per dancer at dress rehearsal. This way there is room for the dancers to watch as much as they would like. Please bring all guests on actual performance days. When it is your child’s turn to dance, we will come and get them. After they dance we will take them to get their group picture taken, after that we will bring them back to you in the auditorium, at this point you are free to leave. An individual professional photographer is available at rehearsal. The photographer will take pictures of individuals, siblings and/or friends. You may get your individual pictures taken before or after they perform. When they are practicing on stage you may take pictures or videos. Pictures and videos are not allowed during the actual performances.
Costume balances are due in March, how much you owed was on your last note, if you don’t know your amount owed ask at the desk.
Costumes will be given out Sat. May 5th through Thurs. May 10th. With the costume, we will give you final recital information and order forms for pictures, a professional video and recital flowers which are sold by Dancers In Motion our traveling dance team. Tights may be purchased at the dance studio.
Tickets for the recital will be on sale at the dance studio May 2nd. Tickets are $8.50 at the studio and $10.00 at the door. Tickets are general admission, two and under lap children will be free.
The room mom book is out! We ask 2 moms per class per show to watch your group of kids. You will not be able to watch the show on this day but you do get to go on stage and watch your class dance. We will give you more specific info and ideas closer to the recital. Thank you to those who help!
