24th Annual Recital ART OF DANCE RECITAL 2018:
We are so excited for our upcoming shows! Below you will find some important information regarding recital. Please read all the way through, as there is a lot of information and helpful tips to help make recital a great experience for you and your dancer.
Saturday, June 16th at Bartram Trail High School- Please see attached sheet for breakdown of rehearsal schedule. The recital schedule was distributed last week. We will also post the schedule in the lobby of each studio.
You should have received your ticket forms with the recital schedule. Please turn those in as soon as possible. This form must be turned back in to your dance teacher in order for you to receive your complimentary tickets to the show (2 free tickets per dancer), as well as purchase additional tickets to the show. There are a limited number of tickets that are sold for each show. Please turn your ticket forms in ASAP to make sure you receive the number of tickets that you want. Shows typically sell out. Tickets are sold on a first come, first serve basis. Account balances must be paid in full to receive tickets. We will pass out tickets the week of the show.
Costumes will be passed out towards the end of May. Please do not let your child wear the costume until dress rehearsal and recital. Please see attached list for specific tights and shoes that each class will need. Female dancers- please no undergarments underneath tights. Accounts must be up to date to receive costumes.
Hair- Female dancers should have hair pulled back in a bun. Please make sure all hair is secured, including bangs. If a dancer has bangs, it will cause a shadow on their face under stage lights when performing. Use hair spray and gel to secure hair back. Glitter spray is always fun for our younger dancers. Not every costume comes with a headpiece. If there is a headpiece, please place to the left side of the bun, unless otherwise stated by choreographer/teacher.
Make-up- Please use stage make-up. This includes, blush, eyeshadow (smoky eye look), mascara and red lipstick. Older girls can wear eye-liner and false eyelashes if they would like. Stage make-up helps a dancer not look “washed-out” under stage lights. For our younger dancers we highly recommend stage make-up, but if there is an issue with skin sensitivity, it is your call as a parent.
Pickett Fences will be taking our recital pictures this year. Linda will be at Dress Rehearsal and will set a time to proof pictures within several weeks after show. Please get your picture taken prior to your rehearsal or once you are finished. If you are in show 1, please take pictures after your rehearsal is complete.

Some months you may have 2 or 3 classes (months with holiday breaks/spring break/recital month, etc.). Other months you may have 5 classes. Over the span of our season everyone will have approximately 43-44 classes over the eleven months.”
