Other Miscellaneous Recital Information:
1. Finale – To tie the show together, there will be a finale at the end that EVERYONE will be required
to participate in. It is nothing complicated, simply everyone walks out on stage and takes a bow.
We practice at the end of dress rehearsal.
2. Picture Week – Steve Pestrock will be at the studio during your child’s class time to take pictures
the week of May 22nd – May 26th. That week, during class you will get your picture taken. Even if
you do not plan on buying pictures, please have your hair up, wear tights and be prepared to have
your picture taken since he will also be taking group pictures and we want every single student in
the photo! Costumes will be handed out that week to take home.
a. COMPETITION NUMBERS
i. The competition group picture will be taken on Tuesday May 23rd at 7:30PM.
Please wear black leggings and your competition team jacket with your hair up
in a bun. If you would like to purchase individual pictures in your competition
costumes, you can do that after the group photo.
3. Backstage parents – Closer to the recital, we will have sign-up sheets for parents to volunteer.
While it is not required to volunteer, it is strongly encouraged! Aside from the fun we have, it is a
wonderful chance to get to know your fellow parents and to see exactly what goes on backstage
during a show. We will need help in a variety of ways from ushers and ticket sellers (front-of-house
volunteers) to help backstage in the dressing rooms. All combo classes, creative movement classes,
and all the beginning classes will require AT LEAST one adult per class to supervise. Front seats
in the auditorium will be reserved so backstage volunteer parents can watch their children’s
4. Costumes – Costumes are beginning to come in and as they do, we will need parents to volunteer
to steam! If you have some time or are sitting in the Waiting Room with nothing to do, hop upstairs
and get steaming!
More information will come the closer we get to the recital! In the meantime, SAVE THE DATE!!
