Techniques In Motion School of Dance Spring Recital 2017: May 25-27, 2017
ALL DANCERS & FAMILIES SPRING 2017 RECITAL PERFORMANCE INFO:
Detailed Information (Recital Photography Schedule, Costume & Hair Requirements, Video Order info, Ticket info, etc) will be distributed via email and on website Approx April -May. To aid us in offering organized recital events such as photo sessions, video orders, dress rehearsal, recital, tickets & all other events regarding recital Please check emails and Face Book posts regarding Rehearsal & Recital Information as the event draws near. Very important info & details will be sent to all dance families on a regular basis in order to keep things running smoothly. So please check & read info provided!
Techniques In Motion School of Dance emphasizes a regimen of technical and artistic instruction. Students have the opportunity to demonstrate their instruction with performances in the annual spring recital. Our Spring Recital is the “Highlight” of the dance year! The students train very hard all year for this performance. Participation in the end of the year dance recital is not mandatory; it is strongly encouraged however and is considered an important part of the overall dance experience. Dancing is a performing art and the performance is the highlight of a dancer’s experience, something for them to look forward to and to strive for. Being part of a performance helps build self-esteem and self-confidence and gives students a chance to showcase the results of all of their hard work, dedication, and progress on a professional theatre stage with professional lights, audio, etc. The recital event belongs to the performers. They are the stars, and what’s important is how they will remember their experience. Will they remember how much their costume cost or if they did their dance perfectly? No—but they will remember that their families came & took pictures, and that they felt special! All of our students, regardless of level, are invited to perform in our annual recital. The anticipation and excitement will build each week as the performance date nears and although partiality is not shown in classes towards dancers who choose not to participate they inevitably will begin to feel left out. The dance recital is an exciting time but it is also an important commitment. Students that miss (even one class) become lost and often emotionally affected and over-whelmed while trying to catch up. They become overloaded while trying to learn last week’s steps and the current ones in the middle of our recital preparations. Class Attendance is very important! If you are in doubt regarding your child’s participation in the dance recital, please contact us to discuss the issue. Since 99% of dancers perform in Spring Recital, Recital participation is assumed. Please inform us prior to October to indicate if your dancer will not be participating.
The rehearsal process is also a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result. Your child’s class will have a designated time for dress rehearsal. Younger children will be scheduled earlier and older children will be scheduled later. The day & times of the dress rehearsal and dance recital will be provided in March or April. If you commit your child to participate in the annual dance recital they will be required to be present at the mandatory dress rehearsal in order to perform in the dance recital.
Programs are written in April and we do our best to accommodate everyone’s needs and schedules. We make every effort possible to keep family members in the same program but we cannot guarantee it. When writing the rehearsal & recital programs many issues must be considered: the amount of dancers & relatives enrolled in the school, the number of classes & routines they may be involved in, keeping the length of the shows at an enjoyable amount of time for all, making sure all events regarding rehearsal & recital are organized and clearly understood by all involved….plus other situations that may arise. Your patience & understanding is greatly appreciated.
If dancer is enrolled in classes that are of different levels or ages they will be performing in more than one recital program. Sibling dancers may not be in same recital program.
To be eligible to participate in recital, all fees must be paid and your account must have a $0 balance prior to stage dress rehearsal date. All outstanding debts must be satisfied & paid in full no later than Wednesday May 24 in order in insure dancer’s participation on stage.
We are also offering a Recital Informational Question & Answer Session for all TIM dance parents on Friday April 28 @ 6pm at the dance school to answer any and all recital related events (recital pictures, stage dress rehearsal & recital programs, etc.) and explain how the rehearsal & recitals will be run.
Below is general information regarding our annual dance recital, fee schedule, costume details, ticket information and more.If you have any questions regarding recital or need additional info please contact us during office business hours 11am-2pm prior to recital weekend: 799-3223.
Pictures of Recital Costumes for all recreational classes are posted in front lobby and on studio website in April. Costumes will be distributed when we have tried on all costumes and are satisfied with the sizing. To insure there are no costume problems prior to pictures, rehearsal, recital, and students should not wear their costumes, accessories or tights prior to the photo session, dress rehearsal, or performance. If a mishap occurs with the costume after it has been distributed then it jeopardizes the dancer’s ability to perform in recital event. We recommend that the name of each dancer be placed in each costume, shoes, accessories and tights. Place costumes in a garment bag with dancer’s name. Pack accessories in a clear plastic bag with dancer’s name. Hats should be stored in a hatbox or similar container to prevent damage. Please do not wash costumes in your washing machine, dry- clean or use Febreze if necessary. If in more than one number during recital we recommend to bring a clothing rack to auditorium and hang costumes in the order of stage performance. Do not allow eating or drinking, other than water while in costume. Tights (if necessary) are provided in costume bags and are completely sanitary. Any questions regarding costuming should be asked on picture day or addressed prior to rehearsal.
Students will not receive their costume(s) or tickets until the balance is paid in full. COSTUME & RECITAL FEE PAYMENTS MAY NOT BE MADE ONLINE OR IN STUDIO BY CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD. CASH, CHECKS OR MONEY ORDERS ACCEPTED ONLY FOR COSTUME/RECITAL FEE PAYMENTS. When making a costume/recital fee payment it must be a separate check from tuition and please write “RECITAL” and dancers name in memo line. Any costume orders placed or changed after January 31st will include additional shipping charges. (Approx: $15.00) and may arrive later than the costumes ordered in December. All costume/recital fee payments are final and non-refundable regardless of circumstance. Costumes are nonrefundable and nontransferable. If a student withdraws from a class after purchasing a costume, the student/family will be contacted when the costume is available for pick-up. Additional charges will be assessed if a student is enrolled in more than one “block” of classes and therefore need more than the allotted class costume. Adult Students DO participate in the Spring Recital however in most cases Adult Classes Do Not pay for a Recital Costume. The instructor & adult class members decide upon stage outfits for adults for the performance. Students will learn a different recital routine for each class they are enrolled in; students in multiple classes are encouraged to participate in the performance of each of their classes. There is a different costume associated with each class. Children will be measured for their costumes in December and costumes will be ordered by TIM School of Dance by mid-December to ensure delivery in time for the dance recital. Costumes will be handed out by the end of April. If you paid for a costume and then your child dropped out of class, you may pick up your costume after May 15th. All costumes not picked up by the end of June will become the property of the Dance school and will be donated.
