Recital: What Show Is My Child In?
Categories: Uncategorized

Attached to this message are the much-anticipated details for the 2018 Recital!   Click here for show assignments: What Show Is My Child In?

We will again be holding the show at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, on the Exhibition Grounds.  The space works well for our groups and we’re looking forward to being back there.

As was previously announced in the general handouts given at the start of the season, we will have 3 performances this year (Green, Pink & Blue).  For dancers in Elementary and up, they will perform in 2 shows (Green & Blue).  For dancers in Junior 2 & Junior 3, they will perform in 1 show (Pink).  Primary & Junior 1 dancers will perform in 1 show (any of Green, Pink or Blue, as assigned).  Dance Company & Pre-Company groups will perform in all 3 shows.  For Junior 1 Combo classes, they will present a ballet piece in class during the second-to-last week of classes (Sat May 5 – Fri May 11).  On stage, they will perform the other discipline they are studying.  Please note that Kinder does not perform in the recital – they have an in-studio presentation the final week of classes (Sat May 12).

NEW THIS YEAR:

* Splitting the studio into multiple performances allows us to keep the show to a reasonable performance length and with this new structuring, we will either have no ticket limit or a much higher limit than in recent years (details about tickets will be emailed in the spring).

* There will NOT be a Show Rehearsal & BBQ at the studio in early May this year.  So while having 3 performances makes for a busier show week, you will have an extra weekend in May that will be uninterrupted.

* Volunteers for the recital will get pre-sale access to purchase tickets.  (Further details will be announced in the spring.)

The schedule for the recital week will be as followed:

Wed May 23 (evening) – Tech Rehearsal for Pink Show

Thurs May 24 (evening) Tech Rehearsal for Green & Blue Shows

Fri May 25 (evening) – Green Show

Sat May 26 (afternoon) – Pink Show

Sat May 26 (evening) – Blue Show

*Exact times will be announced approximately one month prior to the show.
