RECITAL TICKETS GO ON SALE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1ST AT 12:30

RECITAL SHOW ASSIGNMENTS ARE POSTED….

In families with multiple children in dance, we have tried to make sure there is at least one show where your children perform most of their dances.

To best reference when your child is going to dance, you need to know the time their class meets and the name(s) of the dance(s) they are performing and the teacher’s name in some cases.

Some classes meet at the same time so read carefully. If you have a question, please ask and we will try and make sure we give you the correct info.

For Kinder thru 5th Grade click on the link Kinder through elementary show schedules recital 2015 UPDATED

For Middle school click on the link MIDDLE SCHOOL SHOW ASSIGNMENTS

If your child is scheduled for multiple shows, they must dance in every show they are assigned. If your child shows up to the wrong show, even dances with the same name have different choreography, so you can’t switch around as your child and her fellow dancers won’t know where to stand.

For Preschool assignments click on the link PRESCHOOL RECITAL ASSIGNMENTS

If your child is in preschool and you need a change of show schedule, please speak to Miss M on an individual basis.

We have combined some of our classes into tap and jazz production dances. This makes the show more interesting and is challenging for the dancers. We are committed to shows that are entertaining and reasonable in length. This is better for the audience, the dancers and the stage crew. Our shows are usually two hours and 30 minutes which includes an intermission.

DAD/DAUGHTER   has started. Dancers must be in 1st grade and up to be in dad/daughter. Elementary dancers and dads come at 5:10 and will stay till 6:10 to 6:30 depending on their progress. Middle School dancers come at 5:40 and stay till 6:10 to 6:30. Cost is $60. High School Dancers come at 4:30 with their dads.

Pictures are scheduled for Saturday, April 18th for kinder through middle school. Pre-school pictures are usually taken during class time the week of the 13th and high school pictures will be scheduled on an alternate day as the 18th is SAT testing and prom.

We hope to give out costumes the week of March 30th at classes. Please make sure your account is up to date. COSTUMES CAN ONLY BE GIVEN OUT TO THOSE WHOSE ACCOUNT IS UP TO DATE.

At the recitals, the dancers will be backstage in the dressing areas (they are not in the audience like at the holiday show as there is not enough space and the show is longer). Parents will not be allowed into the backstage area during the show with the exception of backstage helpers. We are starting to remind the dancers of proper backstage behavior and safety now so they will be ready for the shows. Our dancers’ behavior is reported to the departments that approve our use of the showroom, and we are known for having well mannered dancers.

Congrats to all who participated in Dancing with the Tahoe Stars. Our dancers’ performance was great and they demonstrated that true stars shine in all aspects of life.

 

 

CLASS INFO:

Dancers enroll in our Combo classes as the foundation of your child’s dance education.  From Pre-School thru 2nd grade they receive a solid foundation in ballet and tap. From 3rd Grade and up the combo changes to jazz and tap with most students adding a full classical ballet class to provide a well rounded dance education.
