16th Annual Recital Information
Thank you for your interest in our 2020 Annual Recital! Our recitals are a wonderful opportunity for students to perform and demonstrate skills learned in class. This is our big event of the year, where students wear gorgeous costumes and perform in a beautiful theater on a real stage! Our recital will be held on Saturday, June 20th, 2020, at West Valley High School. Each class routine will perform in two shows, and each team routine and solo/duo routine will perform in one show. Please see the cast breakdowns to find the shows in which your child will be performing. Levels 3, 4, and team routines will be spread out to perform in all three casts, while levels 1, 2, and tots will only need to perform in two casts. All 3 shows will be held on Saturday, June 20th, 2020. Cast A will perform at 12:00pm, Cast B will perform at 3:00pm, and Cast C will perform at 6:00pm. Tech Rehearsal will be held Friday, June 19th, 2020 at the West Valley High School Theater.
This year’s recital is will be our 16th annual recital since the studio opened in 2004! We are delighted to have you be a part of this year’s show. Please see our Recital Costume Book for pictures of costumes and prices for each class.
The cost of participating in the annual recital is broken down as follows:
$40.00 Recital Participation Fee (Includes Trophy for each student, medal for splits/candlestick club, theater rental)
$35-$90 Costume Purchase (Per routine, each class priced individually)
$30+ Performance Shoes and Tights
$35.00 Recital DVD (Optional Purchase, Price Per Cast)
$24.00 (+ Tax) Recital T-Shirt (Optional Purchase)
$15.00 Per Person Ticket Price for Admission to each Performance, $20 Per Person for Premier Seats (First 3 Rows)
(Please be aware that all recital fees, costumes, and ticket purchases are non-refundable.)
We are constantly working to find ways to keep costs down for our students and families, while still generating enough revenue to cover the cost of putting on our recital each year. Theater rental, sets, theater and studio staff, program and ticket printing, and many other behind-the-scenes expenses make the recital extremely costly to produce. We hope you understand the need to charge for tickets and a recital fee and appreciate your support and participation.
Costume deposits will be collected at $45.00 per costume, due February 27th, 2020, and costume balances March 27th, 2020. The $40.00 Recital Participation Fee must be paid in full by March 27th for costumes to be distributed. Late costumes can be ordered based upon availability with an additional $25.00 rush shipping charge costume. Costumes usually arrive toward the end of May. Please fill out a recital costume order form at the time you make your first payment toward costumes. At that time we will measure your child so we can be sure to order the proper size costume.
Class attendance is important during this time of year. Students must remain enrolled in their classes through June in order to perform. Instructors will be teaching choreography and cleaning routines during each class.
The first draft of the cast lists will be posted in February, showing which groups and team routines will perform in each show. The second draft, available in March, will provide the exact order of performance. If you notice a discrepancy in the order, please let us know. We try our best to accommodate students who are in multiple classes. If your child is performing a solo or duo, please fill out a solo/duo request form to let us know if you have a preference regarding which show your child performs his/her solo or duo. Solo/duo request forms must be turned in to the front desk no later than Thursday, February 27th when costume deposits are due. We cannot guarantee that we can accommodate your solo requests, but we will do our best to honor your requests in every way possible. Also, please keep in mind that if your child is performing multiple solos/duos, we will likely not be able to put all of his/her solo/duo routines in one show, but we certainly will do our very best to accommodate you.
Professional photographers will be coming to our studio in June to take Recital Pictures of our students. These pictures are available for purchase, and are a wonderful keepsake. Please check our monthly newsletter for specific dates and times. Our monthly newsletters are a great way to stay informed about all things recital!
