Show Information and Preparations

SPRING CONCERT Letter #1

Dear Dancers and Parents,                                                                                                              April 2018

We are beginning preparations for our Spring Dance Concert.  Please read this letter carefully as it contains a lot of important show information! Our shows will be at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center located at 471 Stroudwater Street, Westbrook, ME (Westbrook Middle School) on Saturday, June 16th. There will be a matinee at 1:00 pm and an evening show at 7:00 pm. Students in more than one class or siblings dancing in different classes may be scheduled in each performance. See reverse side for Show placement.

CLASS ATTENDANCE

Regular attendance is important as we move into the last few months of the year and instructors are appreciative of communication regarding attendance.  Classes will continue to focus on developing skills and technique, in addition to learning choreography for the Spring Concert. Frequently missing all or part of classes can put undue stress on the dancer and their classmates.  Per studio policy, if a dancer misses classes in which new choreography is taught, the dancer maybe asked to understudy that particular section of the choreography. Our goal is for all dancers to feel confident and successful in the choreography they perform!  

We are offering a Winter Storm Make Up Class on Saturday, April 7th, from 12:15-1 PM, for dancers 3-11years.  Please register online through our Mindbody site or call the studio, 871-1013, to reserve a spot for your dancer.  Dancers 12 & up may call the front desk to schedule an appropriate make up class.

DRESS REHEARSAL

Dress rehearsals will be held Friday, June 15, and Saturday, June 16.  A detailed rehearsal schedule will be sent home in early May.

Each class has a half hour block of time for both photos and stage time. It is important dancers show up to the gymnasium, at the designated rehearsal time, dressed in their costume.

**Please note: Dancers who miss their dress rehearsal or have an outstanding balance for tuition or costumes will not be allowed to perform in the show.

PHOTOS and DVD ORDERS

Professional group photos will be taken at the time of rehearsal. Dancers may also opt to have individual photos taken. Detailed photo info and order forms will be available in May.
