Hello DDC & DCCB Dancers & Parents! 


Below is the information you need to be able to do your hair and makeup for "Emma"!  Regarding the dress rehearsals at TWU Margo Jones, most dancers should wear their dance clothes to the theatre where they will then change into costumes that we will have in their assigned dressing areas.  All dancers except the following should wear pink tights, ballet shoes, and hair slicked back in a bun: 
  • "Ballet Class" DCCB 2 dancers wear black camisole or tank leotard with pink tights, pink ballet shoes, black dance skirt, hair slicked back in a bun. 
  • Butterflies wear black camisole/tank leotards and black leggings or tights with bare feet.  
  • Tidy Elves need a white shirt, and a leotard underneath
  • Collectors' Dolls should wear pink tights, black leotard, their dress, and hair 1/2 up and 1/2 down, curled if possible, and pink ballet shoes.
  • GI Dolls need Black leotard, black leggings, black socks, and black shoes (both Intermediate HH & Advanced HH).

Stage Makeup Girls & Boys/Ballerina Bun Tutorials
DanceCampers at table Make sure your dancer knows that the only reason dancers wear makeup on stage is to ensure that their features are visible to even the back row of the audience.  We do not wear makeup to be prettier or more handsome! Below are three YouTube videos that may help "de-mystify" the process:
 


CLASS SCHEDULE FOR DEC. 12 THRU 17
(Very Abbreviated due to "A Gift for Emma" Performances)
ALL DANCERS IN THE SHOW IN DECEMBER, WILL NOT HAVE REGULAR DANCE CLASS THE WEEK OF TECH REHEARSALS.  Our dancers that are NOT in the show, are asked to adjust their schedule slightly to accommodate our faculty's schedule as so many of us are required to be at the theatre.  

ONLY THE FOLLOWING CLASSES WILL MEET:
  • Mini Hip-Hop, Monday, 12/12, 4:30-5:15pm
  • Ballet/Jazz Combo, Tuesday, 12/13, 5:30-7pm
  • Teen Ballet, Tuesday, 12/13, 7-8pm (instead of 6:30)
  • Beginning Hip Hop, Tuesday, 12/13, 7-7:45pm
  • Ballet/Tap Combo, Wednesday, 12/14, 5:30-6:15pm
If your dancer is normally in Ms. Hannah's T/Th 4:35 Ballet, we would like for those dancers to attend the Teen Ballet class.  If your dancer is normally in Ms. Hannah's Bal/Tap Combo on Monday 3:45/Thu 3:45 or Sat 9:45am, we would like those dancers to attend the Wednesday 5:30 class.

Thank you all for your patience during such a busy time!  You should be receiving a separate email from me reminding you all of the schedule change for that week.                  -Lisa Racina-Torre, Owner-

JUNE RECITAL COSTUME FEES WERE DUE NOV. 1ST
Please check your online account for balance details
Recital 09 Sabella with flower Remember that our June 17th, 2017 29th Annual Recital Showcase will have dancers in beautiful costumes! This is quite a long planning process--we collect costume fees thru November, we measure all dancers in class in November & December, we order the costumes in January, they get shipped from late March thru late April, some classes perform in them in the Arts & Jazz Festival, we have recital photos taken in May, and then we perform in them in June!  Whew!

PLEASE REMEMBER:  Any costumes fees that go unpaid after December 31st will require an extra $10 per costume shipping & handling charge because they will NOT be ordered with the initial costume order.  They will not arrive with the class's costumes and the dancer will not get to try them on with everyone else. Below are the costume fees most of which are the same as last year:

Combo (Ages 3-5) $85
Combo (Ages 6-7) $95
Combo (Ages 7-9 & 8-10) $110
Non-Combo B/J/T (3:35 Ballet w/ Lisa) $125
Ballet or Jazz (Ages 8-10) $80
Ballet or Jazz (Ages 11+) $95
Contemporary $85
Tap $85
Hip-Hop (Ages 7-10) $75
Hip-Hop (Ages11+) $95

After meeting with the DDC Faculty today, we've decided that our theme is "Our Time to Dance!"  We will have our 29th recital at Krum High School on Saturday, June 17th.  If you do not plan to have your dancer participate, please let us know as soon as you can.  

Opt In to receiving text messages from DDC!
In the next few days, you will get an email from us giving you directions on how to OPT IN to receive text messages from the studio.  Most of the time, these messages relate to studio closings due to weather. For your convenience, go ahead and opt in, and I promise I will not bother you too much!!!

Ms. Lisa
