Costumes will need to be distributed in advance of the costume payment deadline for pieces that will be performing at the Gala and in LA. We have set the following pickup days for costumes:
  • Feb 12th- This date is for all students that have accounts paid in full for the remainder of the year including tuition, performance fees, costumes and workshops/Fazio. If you want to know your balance, please reach out to Kim A. (kimalderson@nhapa.org) Students picking up on this day will receive ALL costumes for the year since they are paid in full.
  • Feb 26th-This date is for all remaining students to pick up their costumes needed for just the March/April performances. The costume balances for these costumes must be paid by 2/25 and Kim A will be able to share that balance soon (show runs need to be settled). Remaining costumes will be picked up in April once the final March costume payment deadline has passed.

Dance Excellence
Instructors in LA:
As Dance Excellence notifies us of the artists that will be a part of the program we will add the Dance Excellence page on the nhapa site.
LA Attire:

Let the count down to LA begin! Busy time working hard to get our dancers prepared and our attire and packing needs sorted out! We wanted to provide you with a list of the body suits and tights the company students will need for their classes while in LA. Our captains Marissa & Hailey will send the students a detailed list of what to wear on each day of classes, this is something we have done for every trip and it unifies the group by being attired professionally and the same, each day. Further details will follow, in an effort to provide you with as much time as possible to gather the bodysuits we have given a list below:
 
*”New” black bodysuit with mesh on top from this past year (Revolution, #RD50036)
*Purple mesh on top bodysuit from revolution that can be ordered online (Revolution, #RD50036)
*Older black crisscrossed backed bodysuit
 
We have several of the mesh black bodysuits and the older crisscrossed bodysuit available at the studio in limited supply. Most of the students already have them from previous years, however if you wish to replace them we will have some available. Please note the older style is a discontinued one and we have restricted inventory at the desk. Please take the time to look at your attire needs soon and order the purple one asap to avoid backorder issues through (https://www.revolutiondance.com).  They will also be required to wear proper shoes for each class (tap, jazz, HH), beige & black tights as well as their company jacket and pants.
 
Please feel free to enquire with Daveda or Makayla at the desk or your captains for specific questions you have or wish to purchase something. Let the countdown begin!

A note from Robyne & Kim:

We are thrilled to have our Annual Gala back on the calendar at Blue Ocean Music Hall! We know the students are excited about performing and for those who choose to participate (either with sponsors or auction donations, including baskets) it can be very helpful with your future fiscal planning/offset tuition or other expenses for the next season. 

Kara Mathews, Cecilia Staniac & Alison Murphy are the chairs for the event this year, with Daveda working as advisor. We know they are all working hard to make this another successful event/fundraiser.

PLEASE NOTE the following deadlines to ensure the success of this scholarship fundraiser:
 
  • Items for basket donations need to be received on or before February 26th
  • SPONSORSHIPS: We are pleased to have received some sponsorship donations and will continue to accept them through MARCH 10, 2022
  • The following sponsorship levels are available: Platinum Sponsorship $1,000=6 tickets, Gold Sponsorship $500=4 tickets, Silver Sponsorship $250=4 tickets, Bronze Sponsorship $150=2 tickets Friends & Family $50.00-noted in program. 

Since 2011, we have hosted the ANNUAL COMPANY GALA/Fundraiser to assist our company families by offering them the opportunity to earn monies to help offset costs associated with tuition, costumes, travel and more. 

HOW CAN I EARN POINTS? Bringing in sponsorships, basket donations, hours, chair positions etc...It is a wonderful event and always finishes with a fantastic evening performance. In the past, students have earned upwards of 2K.
 
If we do not receive enough items to support a silent auction (baskets) or live auction (larger items) this event will still be a performance, supported by any sponsorships received. We feel the option to perform, rather than to not have the event at all, is important to the dancers as it something they look forward to. 

We do hope many of you will choose to participate! "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." --Helen Keller
