Hello Elite Dance Families!  

Wow, we are only 5 weeks away from our Spring Recital "Hooray for Hollywood" and our Ballet Show "Ragtime"...and things are in full swing at the studio!
Below you will find all the Rehearsal and Show information along with show line up, dressing room assignments, class song list and general reminders.
Please take a few minutes to print off all the attachments.  For your convenience, we have separated the Recital and Ballet information.  

Recital and Ballet Rehearsal and Show Schedules:
Page one of this two-page attachment is full of very useful information and should help answer any of your questions. Page two is a breakdown of the rehearsal schedules. 
Special reminder--~Saturday, May 20th - Ballet Rehearsal at Elite Dance Studio Act I 9:00-11:00 Act II 11:00-1:00  
Recital & Ballet Show Line Up-

These documents list the Recital and Ballet Show line up.  You may notice that for "Hooray for Hollywood" the line up is slightly different then the Monday & Tuesday rehearsal schedule. The rehearsal schedule does not follow show order.  This accommodates our younger dancers and avoids placing them in the late evening rehearsal time slots.
The main reason for including the shows line up is for those dancers that take multiple classes and will have costume changes during the shows.  It would be extremely helpful for parents to print off the line up and take a couple minutes to go through it with your dancer. Helping them to know the order of their dances and how they will need to be prepared to change their costumes, tights and accessories.  We will be educating those dancers that have quick changes by giving them helpful hints on layering tights, organizing their dance bag, etc., it would be very beneficial to have them know their costume order and approx. time they will have to change. (Each routine is about 2 minutes long) We will have "intimate" changing areas in each dressing room to help provide privacy to our changing dancers.  Please make sure all costumes, accessories and shoes have the dancers name in them.  Quick changes are a way of the dance world and like our older dancers say, "it adds some excitement to the backstage area!".
