Whew!!! That was a great dress rehearsal, it's like we barely have any kinks to work out!
Alright so for Saturday, we will do makeup early and stall to put costumes on until right before the show. Feel free to bring a snack or leave for a quick bite once you have finished hair and makeup.
(parents will be in charge of their own childs hair and makeup although it is a group atmosphere so don't panic just come prepared) Refer to the blog post prior for tutorial if you need.
Can I please have my older crew - 7yrs and up come for 4:00 to do makeup
The younger ones please arrive at 5:00
We will be ready for 5:45
There is hired ADULT backstage help / supervision so the plan is to leave all dancers back there for the length of the show. I have games and coloring books and we'll have the tv going but please do prep them of the calm and gentle atmosphere we are NEEDING backstage. If your baby ballerina may not be able to do this please feel free to check in and see how it is going. There will be a few mom's backstage for costume changes as well.
We will close the show with a finale so if you do have a baby ballerina on your lap instead of back stage the ushers have been instructed to help them walk up to the stage, but please make sure they make it up the aisle safely.
And finally... after asking 6 grandpas and guessing that the slow response is a decline :) (poor cornered guys, I'm sorry!) I am noticing we have a trend of bashful men! WE ARE SHORT A SANTA!! Please if this sounds like something someone you know would be into, I'm rather nervous this is getting so late.
I have the costume and the candy canes I just need a body to fill the suit :) Changing in the washroom a few songs prior to the finale and then entering the back of the theatre with a festive jingle and then visiting with the kids for a photo after.
Let me know asap .
Please feel free to private message me if there is anything I have overlooked, there are a lot of details this year but it seems very organized as of now... I think :)
Other then that!
