VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

It takes many people to pull together our annual recital.  Please consider volunteering your time during the Saturday or Sunday recital performances or the Sunday Twinkle Stars Showcase.  Sign up sheets are located in the studio waiting room. Or you can email Miss Carrie about volunteering.

We are always looking for more moms to help out in our dressing rooms during the show.  If your child performs both days, you can watch one day and help out backstage the other day. All dressing room monitors will receive one free ticket to either show for themselves or a friend or family member.

 

 We are also looking for ushers for all shows, parking monitor (keeping folks out of the firelanes), security in the auditorium during the show and help with clean up after the final Sunday show.

 

Please let Miss Carrie know if you are interested in helping out at all or if you would like more info about what is involved with each assignment. 

 

 Thank you to all who volunteer. Your help is greatly appreciated.


Stage Rehearsals
 
Stage rehearsals will be held Wednesday, May 29th and Friday, May 31st.  Each class will rehearse on one of these dates.  The rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the beginning of May. 
 
As you can imagine, it is difficult to create a schedule that is convenient for all Dance Corner families.  Please let Miss Carrie know about any school concerts, field trips etc, that may interfere with your child's ability to attend rehearsal on May 29th or May 31st by April 21st. 
 
We will do our best to schedule classes on dates and times that work for everyone. 
 
Normal dance wear should be worn for the rehearsal. No costumes please.

Recital ticket sales will be open on May 10th online. No need to wait in line at the studio to purchase! 

  Twinkle Stars Logo

We will continue to sell tickets in order that fall registrations were received.  Graduating seniors and the first seven families who registered for Fall 2012 classes will purchase tickets first and then the next 30 families who registered for fall classes will purchase their tickets, and then the next 30 families will purchase their tickets and so on.  

 

Families in the first pre-sale group will receive a special pre-Sale code from Miss Carrie to log in and purchase tickets online on May 10th.  They will be the only families able to purchase tickets for 24 hours.  Then the next 30 families will use their pre-sale code to log in and purchase tickets for 24 hours on May 11th.  This process will continue through May 16th.  On Friday, May 17th tickets will be available for purchase to the general public.  

Your pre-sale code will be emailed to you!

 

The list of families and their ticket sale date is at the bottom of this email.

 

There is a limit of 12 tickets per family for "Dancing Up a Storm" performances through May 16th.  If you need more tickets you can purchase them starting May 17th.  There is no limit on tickets for the "Twinkle Star Showcase".  

 

Tickets are $14 per person for "Dancing Up a Storm" performances and $10 per person for the "Twinkle Star Showcase".  Our online ticket provider charges a $2.50 convenience fee per ticket in addition to the base price.  We will continue to offer discounted Recital Passes for the same person to attend both performances of "Dancing Up a Storm."  The coupon code for this will be made available to everyone before May 10th.  Recital Passes are $21 or $10.50 per show. There is a limit of 4 recital passes per family.  

 

Anyone who needs a seat must have a ticket. Children under 5 do not need a ticket unless they need their own seat. Due to fire codes we can't allow strollers in the aisles and sitting in the aisles or steps is not permitted. Young children must sit on a lap or in a seat.

 

Due to the limited number of handicapped accessible seats available, there is a maximum of two special seating seats per family. If you need additional handicapped accessible seats for your family, please contact Miss Carrie. 

 

The seating chart for Haddam Killingworth High School Auditorium will appear when you log in to purchase your tickets.  Select your seats, enter any coupon codes (volunteer, recital pass, etc) and check out.  All from the comfort of your home!

 

Once your order is complete, you will receive an email confirmation from ShOvation (our online ticket provider) with a link to print your tickets at home like an airline boarding pass! 

Please be certain to print your tickets and take them with you to the show for admission.

 

Tickets will be on sale online up to 24 hours before our first performance on Saturday, June 1st.

 

All patrons purchasing their tickets will receive an email confirmation of their entire ticket order.  Make sure to enter all billing information correctly, zip code, mailing address and email address to ensure your order processes correctly. An accurate email address is necessary for email receipts. All credit cards and VISA check cards are accepted.

 

May tuition is due by Wednesday, May 10th.  You will not receive your pre-sale code for online ticket purchase until your balance is paid in full.  Families carrying past due balances will not receive a pre-sale code or be able to purchase tickets until their balance is paid in full.  We will monitor daily ticket sales and if families with past due balances purchase tickets before their account is paid in full, we will apply your ticket payment to your past due balance and release your tickets for sale. 


Please check the list below for your families name and Pre-Sale date.  Please contact Miss Carrie with any questions about ticket sales.  This is a new experience for everyone and we want to be sure all our customers are comfortable with the process.  We hope you will be happy with the convenience of online ticketing.
