Hello dancers and families, it’s that time again! Our big spring recital is in less than a week. Here’s everything you need to know:
For dancers in Act I: Dress rehearsal is Tuesday, May 26.
For dancers in Act II: Dress rehearsal is Thursday, May 28.
Rehearsal begins at 6 pm both nights; please arrive at Moore Auditorium in Mars Hill at 5:30. Dancers should be in full recital makeup, and bring their costumes so that they can change backstage in the dressing rooms. As with the recital, no chewing gum, food or drinks are allowed in the auditorium, and dancers should not have any underwear visible. Ballet shoe ties should be tucked out of the way, and dancers’ hair should be neatly pinned away from their faces. If your teacher wants your hair to be a certain way for the recital, please do it this way for the rehearsal as well.
The recital begins promptly at 6 pm, and dancers should arrive no later than 5:30. Rules for food, hair, underwear, etc. are the same as those listed above for the dress rehearsal. Please do not wear your costume in the audience before or after your performance; they are to be seen onstage only. You may wear your costume with a cover-up over it while you are in the audience. If dancers have a long wait before going onstage, they may sit with their families in the audience, but all dancers must be backstage three numbers before their appearance. Dancers who are receiving 3, 6, 9, 12, or 15 year trophies, please check the program to see when they will be presented, and be backstage three numbers before you are set to receive your trophy. Parents, please be prepared to pick up your children as they come off the stage, if they might need help finding you and their seat.
Each dancer received two tickets when all tuition and the recital fee were paid. Additional tickets can be purchased at the door. Tickets are $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. Tell your friends and family to come watch you perform!
We will be selling candy and flowers at the recital; someone will be at the dress rehearsal to take pre-orders, and you may also buy them on the day of the recital without pre-ordering.
Jim Guilliams will be recording the recital and selling videos again this year. You can order them at the dress rehearsal or at the recital.
We’re excited to have such talented dancers at Weaverville Dance Academy, and can’t wait to let you show off all of the hard work you’ve done this year. See you at the recital!
