A few questions I keep getting asked I will answer here.
(This is very standard. I know the girls have in the past enjoyed sneaking out to sit with parents after their performance but this year it will not be necessary please. The girls may watch each others dances at our rehearsal. I am sure you can imagine the disturbance it would be to let each child into a dark theater between pieces this year and they will be VERY well entertained backstage this year with a great backstage area. Also it will make our grande finale possible)
Please please please do feel free to be spreading the word about our show and sharing this as we are really hoping that we sell BEYOND just relatives of our students and start to really make a community presence and fill that great big auditorium! Also.... it is really $$ so I am praying for seats to fill! hahahaha
Parade is set for this weekend with a trailer (yay) and as the sun is poised to come out we may not need our rain gear but I have a ton of silly wear that we will just go crazy with... Face paint, wigs, hula skirts, tutus... come dressed as outrageous as you can think of! Also if I have parents walking please let me know so I have an idea for safety and handouts...
Please note that the reason we are having photos at the theater is to get a little sneak at the stage while there is still time to practice adjustments. (And also because they will look awesome!) But that said we are going to be much more pressed for time then our relaxed studio sessions, so makeup and hair will need to be done upon arrival. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your timeslot to dress but come with stage makeup on (link below for reference) and hair in a neat bun.
I will want each class to hopefully be able to run through their piece and shoot our individual images so we will need to stay organized and precise as running over our time is not permitted. It will be great for the girls to have an idea of the stage space so I feel it is worth me having a little crazy in my day :)
But please do stay close at hand parents to help it go smooth and punctual.
