Our annual recital is an exciting event for students, staff and parents.  The children have worked very hard all year and are excited to showcase what they have learned.  For parents new to SVDC, our studio’s dedication and commitment to excellence over the past 26 years has made our recital an outstanding event, from our professional lighting and sound to our dedicated back-stage crew, we take great pride in this annual event.

Following you will find all of the information you need for this exciting time of year.  If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to a staff member.

RECITAL T-SHIRT

Every year we print a special recital t-shirt commemorating this exciting event!  This year’s t-shirts will be available to order online and will also be available at the recital, but in limited quantity, so please make sure to place your orders in advance! You can order in your parent portal under the online store.  

 

RECITAL DVD’S

Our annual dance recital will be professionally videotaped.  This year we are going to have them available on USB.  You will be able to order Saturday’s show which will consist of both shows A and B, and Sunday’s show which will consist of both shows A and B. The cost of the USB is $32.  For the safety of our students and integrity of our choreography, videotaping is not allowed during the recital performance.  You can order in your parent portal under the online store.  

 

HAIR/MAKEUP/DRESS CODE

The following applies to Pictures, Dress Rehearsal and Recital.  All children need to wear makeup as performance and camera lighting can make the skin look very pale.  For the younger girls, blue eyeshadow, blush and red lipstick.  Make sure to gel and hair spray hair for a sleek and professional look.  Buns and hair pieces should be secured with bobby pins. Older girls – No black or colored bras straps, nude only! 

NO Jewelry of any kind (unless otherwise instructed), NO nail polish, NO underwear under tights.

This is for the uniformity and professionalism of our dance recital

 

 

 

DRESS REHEARSAL

Will be at the Scottish Rite Cathedral 

DRESS REHEARSAL START TIMES:

ECE classes……….5:15

SHOW A ………………6:00

SHOW B ………………7:00

We will not be rehearsing competition solo’s during dress rehearsal 

We schedule a dress rehearsal so our students can become familiar with the stage and to ensure proper lighting, sound and direction.  Please make sure you are on-site and in full costume/makeup/hair by your designated time. 

This year for safety purposes, no one will be allowed into the auditorium for dress rehearsal.  There will be a dancer ‘check in’ in the lobby when you enter the building.

RECITAL -

All shows will be a little over an hour without an intermission.  Everyone must clear the auditorium after each show.

**** Please note – The recital line up is final.  There will be no changes to accommodate personal schedules, please do not ask.  With smaller shows, it’s harder to accommodate multiple dances for costume changes.  

RECITAL POLICIES

  • Please arrive at the Auditorium 30 minutes before performance time.  Doors open to the public 30 minutes before performance time. 

  • Masks are NOT required for the dancers during performances.  All masks must be worn until backstage, they will remove masks, and put them on right after they finish performing on stage. If you would like your child to wear a mask during performance, please let us know through email info@sauconvalleydance.com. All audience members are required to wear masks.

  • COSTUMES ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE AUDITORIUM or anywhere outside of the “backstage area”.  Please cover up when in public, costumes are for stage only.

  • Doors to the auditorium will only be opened BETWEEN NUMBERS.  Please be courteous to our performers and proceed to the exit during the applause and refrain from any unnecessary exit/entry.  There is an exit door to the right of the stage, this is for PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN only and is not for re-entry.  Ushers will be available at all doors to assist.

  • ABSOLUTELY NO VIDEOTAPING IS PERMITTED DURING RECITAL.  You will be asked to leave the auditorium. 

  • Only 1 parent/guardian will be allowed in the backstage area when picking up/dropping off your child.  Please be advised that dressing rooms are GIRLS only, if your child needs assistance please ask another dance Mom, or talk to our desk staff prior to the recital.  Please make sure the dressing rooms are tidy and picked up after when the recital is finished.  If your child is under 10, please do not leave them unattended in the dressing room. They must be picked up after their dance number.

  •  NO pictures or selfies in dressing rooms, you will be asked to leave.

  •  If you have any questions/concerns during Dress Rehearsal or the Recital, please see one of our backstage staff (not Miss Holly). 

OTHER REMINDERS:

When you enter the Scottish Rite Cathedral, follow the signs to the dressing rooms.  Twinkle Stars will have their own

   dressing room right outside the auditorium.  Everyone else will be downstairs.

*  For dress rehearsal, Twinkle Stars will be seated in a designated area in the auditorium and one of our backstage crew

   will come down for them when it's time to perform.  Please make sure you are dressed and seated in the auditorium by

   5:20

*  Please make sure to drop your child off at least 9 numbers before their performance.  You can pick up your child after

    they dance.  We do not have babysitting services backstage as our parent volunteers also want to see the show

   after their child dances.  Older children are not allowed to hang out in the dressing rooms if they are finished dancing.

*  Please make sure to clean up after your dancer in the dressing room.  In past years, the Scottish Rite Cathedral loves   

   having us rent their facilities as they told us we have always been one of the cleanest dance studios!

*  We will be selling flowers and gifts at the lobby desk as well as snacks and drinks.

CLASSROOM MOMS

We are looking for Classroom Moms for each performance for ALL Twinkle Stars and Combination Stars classes.  Responsibilities include staying with the class at all times, line ups, walking them backstage, and walking them back to the dressing room after their performance.  Classroom Moms must stay with the entire class until all children have been picked up.  With this, comes the added perk of watching your child from the wings of the stage – the best seat in the house!  Click here to sign up!

 

USHERS

We are looking for ushers for all performances.  You may volunteer for as little or as many performances as you like.  Ushers will be handing out programs and monitoring the entry/exit at either our main or side doors as well as helping with ticketing and intermission concessions.

 If you are an usher you do not need a ticket for the show.  Click here to sign up!

 

Thank you and we look forward to seeing our fabulous dancers on stage!!!

As art educators, we feel that it is our responsibility to teach young people the appropriate audience etiquette.  This also makes a more enjoyable performance for all audience members.  These guidelines make sure our dancers give their best possible performance without distractions.

* Please refrain from talking during dance performances

* Enter and exit only between numbers

* All phones should be turned off or on silent

* All restless or crying infants should be removed from the performance area.

* For the safety of our dancers and integrity of our choreography, no photos or videos are

   allowed to be taken.

* Please be kind to our volunteers they are also parents of dancers and just want the best

   performance for their children and are helping to make that possible.
