Year End Show 2022

“Reignite” is Saturday June 18th, 6pm at the Port Theatre

We have one very exciting show this season called Reignite!  This performance will include all of our dancers from ages 3 and up!!

Please take time to read through this information carefully and if you have any questions, please let us know.  All this information sent out by email on May 2nd.

All Year End Show information will be posted on the wall above the radiator in the lobby by May 12th and some information will be sent out by email, but not all.  We ask that the parents come into the studio and look at all the details.  The information can be very overwhelming and this way it will give you a chance to ask questions.

Year-end show week is very different in the studio compared to all other weeks!  Regular classes DO NOT run as normal.  The week is taken up by rehearsals and we try to pace ourselves because it is busy, and we don’t want anyone feeling tired or under the weather come show day!

  • Carry your child’s costume to the theatre on a hanger and cover it in the event of rain.
  • We encourage the parents to put all the students costume parts, dance shoes and hair/makeup accessories in a bin and label it with their name. This will help to keep all items in one spot J
  • Leave your child’s street clothes in a bag.Attach the child’s name on top of the bag for easy identification.  Paper & pen will be available in the dressing room.  Dressing room helpers will help change your child from costume to street clothes after performing.

At Intermission

  • Parents can come and get their dancer to come into the audience with them if they are done dancing or vice versa, they can bring them backstage top dance in the 2nd
  • All dancers watching in the audience will need to purchase a ticket.
  • Absolutely NO costumes are allowed in the audience or out in the foyer!!
  • If you need to take your child home/other before or at intermission, please inform the dressing room helper and they must be signed out.
  • The show is always fantastic, and we encourage everyone to stay until the end not just until your dancer is finished performing.The audience is what helps to bring the energy to the dancers on stage, and it is disappointing to many empty seats as the show goes on.
