Here is a schedule for photo day on Dec 2 - if your classes scheduled time does not fit your family's schedule let me know asap as I may be able to sneak you into different timeslots. Hopefully this accommodates all of you who are wanting to participate in photo sessions. They are going to be superb this year, I am so excited - maybe my favorite year of costuming to date!
Please arrive with hair and makeup done for photos, I will have my kit here for touch up but timeline is crucial so if you are able to be fully ready it will keep the day running nicely... Let me attach a great makeup tutorial here for you to peak at, and hair tutorial here, also new studio parents ...keep in mind there are many studio mom's who have a few years seasoning now, you are almost guaranteed to have a helping hand in the waiting area, please don't stress - this is meant to be the FUN part!
Also next week, after the photos this year I will be SENDING HOME YOUR COSTUMES. Each of you will go home with a garment bag with any and all costumes and accessories for your child's routines.
PLEASE keep these together in their bag and safe. It will be your responsibility to have these garment bags brought to dress rehearsal and to the evening of the show, then costumes are yours to keep after that.
Hopefully you all have gotten tickets for the show, you can do this online at thebailey.ca or at the box office in person at the theatre. Looks like we are sold up to row j ! so let's keep spreading the word and fill up the theatre for the students who have worked so hard on their pieces. It really will be an enjoyable show!
Speaking of their performance pieces some of the classes have practice videos up on the blog - password is ilovesld . Please let the students watch them as much as your family's schedule permits... the more they memorize the choreography the more they can let go of the concentration and then start working on the personality and presentation. My hope is that they put these on repeat like commercials and the steps just sink into their smart little brains, then class time can be sent on polishing the routine not just remembering it :) .
Getting close!!! yayayayayya!
