On Monday, June 5th and Tuesday, June 6th the students will have their first opportunity to practice on the actual stage for a staging rehearsal held at Cuyahoga Falls High School. Please keep in mind the students have worked very hard throughout the season to put on a great show and this rehearsal week is a very important part of the process. Please try your best to attend these rehearsals. See attached list for scheduled times for rehearsal week. “Like” All About Dance! by Kristen on Facebook or follow us @allaboutdance on Twitter for “to the hour” rehearsal updates.

Tickets:  Tickets can be purchased at All About Dance! beginning Saturday, April 22nd, from 5:00 – 7:00pm. **Note: If you are planning to wait in line on the day of ticket sales, please realize that empty chairs DO NOT reserve your space in line.** Please respect the neighboring businesses by not occupying all parking spaces as well as standing directly in front of their front doors. Reserved seating will be sold for the entire auditorium. All children ages 2 and older must have a valid ticket therefore they are not permitted to be a “lap child”. All ticket sales are final. Do not buy more than you need expecting to turn them back in—this will not be possible with reserved seating. Ticket prices are $20.00 presale and $22.00 at the door. Tickets can be purchased with cash (preferred) or checks must be made payable to Kristen Messner. Separate checks are required for those who are purchasing tickets for other families. Only one extra purchase of tickets will be permitted on Saturday, April 22nd!!!! All tuition balances must be paid in full BEFORE families may purchase recital tickets. Tickets will be on sale at the courtesy desk on Monday, April 24th from 5:00 to 7:00pm. After Monday, April 24th, the weekly Ticket Sales schedule will be announced.

  • Kindercise/Kindertap/Boys performing with Kinder-class:  Are the ONLY children permitted to sit in the audience before and after their performance.  Therefore, it is VERY important to get your free ticket for both performances for your Kindercise/Kindertap/Boys performing with Kinder-class child at the SAME time you purchase your recital tickets. If you forget, it is not possible to exchange tickets or add a free seat.
  • Please do not purchase tickets for your performers as they must remain in their dressing room for the entire performance. 

Wheelchair & Disabled Seating: In consideration of our patrons with disabilities, we have arranged special seating for those in wheelchairs and those unable to walk to the higher balcony seats.  This special seating is LIMITED AND SELLS OUT quickly, so get your special seating as soon as possible.  Prices remain the same. 

  • The auditorium will only accommodate a specific number of wheelchairs. Therefore, our wheelchair bound patrons will be able to purchase seats in the designated wheelchair row on the first level of the auditorium. There are limited auditorium seats available in the wheelchair row for ONE family member to sit nearby. Folding chairs cannot be placed in wheelchair spaces for family members or friends. Other family and friends will need to purchase standard reserved seating. 
  • There will be a designated section for handicapped patrons who may not necessarily be in a wheelchair, but cannot maneuver the balcony stairs. These seats are limited to handicapped patrons ONLY & ONE FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND. Other family and friends will need to purchase standard reserved seating.

Recital Costume Photos: Lange Photographic will be taking our recital photos at All About Dance on Sunday, April 23rd from 9:00am-7:30pm. The office will NOT be open on Sunday, April 23rd. All costumes should be picked up prior to this day! Photos will be set up according to classes in order to take the entire group photo as well as individual shots. Time slots for individual photos will be available prior to the class photo. Refer to the Recital Photo Schedule attached. Even though you may not be interested in purchasing any packages, we ask that each student attend their group photo for our 2016-2017 studio records. All photos can be used in your “Dancer Ad/Congrats” space in our “The Art of Animation” Souvenir Program.

2017 Recital Program and Dancer Congratulation’s Ad Space: We are proud to offer our Keepsake Recital Program. Due to the support of those who have acquired businesses, friends, and family to purchase an advertising/congratulations ad space we have been able to decrease our costs. This allows us to offer a high-quality program to our patrons. In an effort to continue to keep our program costs low and the quality high, we are again selling advertising and “congrats” portrait space in our recital program. For each individual ad purchased, the purchaser receives a free program. Be our “Top Ad Seller” (limited to only one person) and receive a trophy presented to the student during the dress rehearsal, one-class free for our Summer Dance Program, AND one-class free for September – December 2017. Some suggestions:

  • Ask a local business to help off-set the cost of your child’s congrats space ad and include their contact information below your dancer’s or class picture.

  • Get together with your entire class to sponsor a class photo! We will be using the dancer’s photo taken by Lange Photographic on April 23rd, 2017 or Competition photos that were taken earlier in the year

  • Business Ad forms are available for businesses wanting to advertise in our program without a dancer’s photo. With an audience of well over 3,000-strong, your advertisement will certainly be widely read! ALL BUSINESSES placing a full or half-page ad will also have a link to your business website placed on our AADBK website SPONSOR TAB and have your logo placed on our AADBK SPONSOR BANNER displayed at various community events.

Orders must be placed by May 6th, 2017. See a sample book located at the courtesy desk. Order forms can be found on our website or at the AADBK courtesy desk. Check out the sample display on the bulletin board in the airlock hallway. ***Please keep in mind if you choose to submit a photo other than the Lange Photos from this year, photo must be at least 300 dpi for quality purposes. Also keep in mind that any scanned photos may be grainy or blurry and AADBK will not be responsible for quality of ad.***

We want all of our students to feel very confident when performing their routines on the stage, therefore, we ask that students try to receive all their stars before the recital. If your child is having difficulty learning a routine, we recommend videotaping the routine during the weekly lesson so that you may help your child practice at home. You may also contact your child’s teacher if you still have concerns.

It is highly recommended that you purchase your child’s music in order for them to practice at home. Submit the order form with your payment and a practice cd will be made for your child.  Please allow time for the instructor to make the cd.

Female guardians may escort their child to their assigned table(s). The door guards will escort your child if being dropped off by a male.
      Please check in with the TABLE MOM and CHANGING MOM and drop your COSTUME boxes off at each designated area along the wall. A volunteer will check your box in for each act.
      **All dancers will have an assigned table/seat this year and sit with their LEVEL INSTEAD OF ACT, (i.e. Beg. 2, Junior 3, instead of act. **
       
      Each child must bring a clear box for extra items. This box will be kept at the table as their so called NAME TAG. It will be used in place of any back packs or dance bags. Please DO NOT bring any bags of any kind into the dressing room. Bags/suitcases will not be allowed and anything “extra” needs to be kept in a sterilite box, i.e.: lip stick, hairspray, bobby pins, toupee tape, small water bottle, a snack, extra clothes. Please follow the template on next page when creating label for ‘EXTRAS’ TABLE BOX. You will need only one ‘EXTRA’S TABLE BOX for all of your extra items. Please follow the ‘EXTRAS’ TABLE BOX template on the next page for your ‘EXTRAS’ TABLE BOX LABELS.

       

     

    • If you are only in one act NO COSTUME boxes are necessary. You still need a TABLE BOX for your extra items.

    • All non-dressing room volunteers must leave the room by 6:00. *Men’s restroom by boys’ dressing room is off limits to girls. All girls will be escorted to the proper restrooms by Table Moms.

     

    1. Boys Dressing Room
       
      MUST HAVE COSTUME BOX IF IN MORE THAN ONE ACT OR SKIT. SEE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS.
      The Boys dressing room is located off of Stage Right in Room 622. ALL BOYS who are not in kinder-class will stay in this dressing room. They are not permitted in the audience. Guardians may escort boys to the dressing room, but during the recital only the dancers and dressing room volunteers will be allowed inside. Check with dressing room parents when entering the dressing room as to where costume boxes should be placed. Boys will change in dressing room. As with the girls’ dressing room, boys will be escorted to & from restroom to prevent any lingering in hallways. They will change in the dressing room only unless prior permission has been given for a specific reason. Quick Change boxes are to be dropped off before entering the dressing room. All non-dressing room volunteers must leave the room by 6:00.
       
    2. Suggestions for your child once in the Dressing Room
       
      Your child will remain in the dressing room during the entire show.   It can get extremely warm in this enclosed area.  It is highly suggested to bring water bottles and snacks (NO POP OR COLORED DRINKS or SNACKS-NO PEANUT PRODUCTS DUE TO SEVERELY ALLERGIC DANCERS). Please also send some type of activity for them to work on at their table (coloring books, games, etc).  All dancers must remain at their table at all times. We will try our best to project the recital so that everyone can view from their table. Bringing Electronic devices is at your discretion and All About Dance! will not be held responsible for any missing or damaged items. Keep in mind everything must fit in their TABLE BOX.
       
  4. Pick-Up Procedures at the Conclusion of the Show
     
    • How to Pick up Your Child at the Conclusion of the Show (Exception: Kinder-Classes)
       
      • Girls’ dressing room:  Only ONE female guardian may enter the girls’ dressing room through the designated BACK door to the dressing room. Please pay attention to our 2017 pick-up procedure. One female family member will be allowed into the dressing room. The new entrance for pick-up will be at the BACK of the cafeteria. You will come in and have to stop at each designated area along the wall to pick up your boxes for each routine and then you will exit out either Stage RT or Stage Left doors. This is when you will pick up your quick change boxes as well. THIS YEAR YOU CAN EXIT TO EITHER 4TH STREET OR THE PARKING LOT. However, you will still not be allowed to exit STOW STREET. Plan accordingly as far as parking goes to make it convenient at the end of the night.
         
        If a female dancer is being picked up by a male guardian, that male should line up along the wall of chairs by the police officer. A runner will ask for your dancers name and the dancer will be escorted to you. Older students who drive may leave on their own showing their car keys to the STAGE RIGHT door guard. Due to backstage congestion, props, quick change booths and loading of props & scenery onto truck, there will be no exiting through the hallway to Stow Street.
         
      • Boys’ dressing room: One parent or guardian with a TICKET may exit through the audience left middle auditorium door below balcony.  Door guard will permit only one dancer parent or guardian with the ticket to exit at that door.  Parent or guardian will proceed to boys’ dressing room, show the ticket to the dressing room parents and claim their dancer. Due to the location of the boys’ dressing room, dancers and guardians may then exit to the stairs of the Stow Street exit.  TICKETS will be handed out during staging rehearsals.  Parents, make sure you have your pick-up tickets prior to the Friday evening show.

        **All other parents and friends attending the recital should exit through the back doors of the auditorium and continue exiting through the main doors outside.  Please do not wait for your dancer inside the school.**


         
  5. Costumes as prepared for the recital
     
    Parents:  Keep in mind that in most cases, your child’s costume will need some attention from you.  It is the student’s responsibility to make sure the costume is neatly pressed, wearable and all pieces of the costume are in order. Recital students must have all pieces of their costume in order to participate in their number.  Make all final preparations to your costume prior to the dress rehearsal.  If you have any questions about preparing your costume, now is the best time to contact your child’s instructor to clear up any confusion on how the costume should be worn.  All headpieces should be worn on the right side of the head and all female dancers should wear their Jazzy Tan body tights in place of their underwear.  Students should be fully dressed in make-up and in their first costume upon arriving to the school.  YOUR CHILD SHOULD HAVE HER/HIS COSTUME COMPLETELY COVERED BY BULKY STREET CLOTHES.  NO ONE SHOULD BE SEEN IN HER/HIS COSTUME BEFORE SHOW TIME!  STUDENTS SHOULD WAIT UNTIL THEY ARE IN THE DRESSING ROOM IN ORDER TO PUT ON HEADPIECES.
     
  6. Quick-Changes (all student Quick-Changes will be listed on Studio B Bulletin Board)
     
    A quick change is assumed if the student has 3 or less acts to change.
    • In order to make quick changes run smoothly, it is imperative that you visit the quick-change table during the Monday and Tuesday of staging rehearsals at CFHS.
    • The quick-change table will be located in the back of the auditorium, only on these two days.
    • There is a color-coordinated system in place that must be followed in order to maintain organization. This is in place so that the costume containers do not get lost or misplaced. This is also necessary in order to get your child onstage on time for their next dance number.
    • Quick changes will be practiced during dress rehearsal, so it is important to speak to a head quick-changer before this time.
    • At the quick-change table, you will get a paper with instructions/tips and will be told what color to put on your costume box. Costume containers without color-coded system will not be allowed in the quick change area and WILL BE MOVED!

     
  7. Programs, Flowers, Recital Action Photos and Recital DVD’s can be ordered before and during the 2017 Recital.
     
  8. Borrowed Costumes and Props
     
    Any borrowed props must be returned the second night of the recital to the prop tables located on the sides of the stage. All borrowed costumes should be returned to Kristen in the teacher’s dressing room. Make sure to have all items labeled together in a bag with your name on it.
     
  9. Restricted Auditorium Admittance For Performers
     
    No dancer may enter the auditorium beginning at 5:00pm to the end of the show on both nights. (Exception: Kindercise/Kindertap students; see below for further information) Your child will remain in the dressing room during the entire length of the show. Again, please make sure your child has an activity to keep them busy and a water bottle and snack (no pop, colored drinks or snacks and NO PEANUT products).
     
  10. Kindercise & Kindertap Students
     
    Kinder-class students ONLY will be permitted to sit in the audience with their parents before and after their act. Please note that all parts of the costume must be COMPLETELY COVERED, including headpieces. There will be assigned volunteers in charge of assisting each Kinder student line-up backstage.

Make sure to familiarize yourself with these locations at the school during the staging and dress rehearsals. All parents should return to the same designated drop-off spot at the conclusion of their child’s performance to pick them back up and return to the audience. Please note: If you are not signed up as a volunteer for your child’s class, then you may NOT watch your child perform from the backstage area.
