Making Spirits Bright 2019

Important Dates:
We hold an annual holiday show each November. The date for our 2018 dress rehearsal AND holiday show performance is Saturday, November 24. As you can see, our date has changed – we are having our performance and our dress rehearsal all on the same day - on Saturday! 

Performance Information:
Our holiday show is optionalfor all our students and differs from our recital. All dancers are invited to participate in the holiday show ages 3 and up. 

When Are Rehearsals?
We’re doing it differently this year!  Dancers who want to participate in the show only need to attend three, short, Friday rehearsals on: Friday, November 2, 9 & 16 and one in-studio dress rehearsal on Saturday, November 17. Dancers ages 5-11 will be in two numbers during the show, one in each act. Dancers 12 & up have additional options for dances. Our full rehearsal schedule is listed below: 

Dancers Age 3: Saturday, November 3, 9 and 17 | 8:15am – 9:00am (Kidzdance 3 Preschool)

Dancers Age 4: Friday, November 2, 9 and 16 | 4:15pm – 4:45pm (Kidzdance 4 Preschool)

Dancers Age 4: Friday, November 2, 9 and 16 | 4:45pm – 5:15pm (must be enrolled in AcroDance Preschool class)

Dancers Age 5-8: Friday, November 2, 9 and 16 | 4:00pm – 5:30pm (two dances) 

Dancers Age 9-11: Friday, November 2, 9 and 16 | 4:00pm – 5:30pm (two dances)

Dancers Ages 12 & Up: Please call or email us for the latest 12 & up rehearsal schedule. 
Your dancers schedule will vary depending on the style of dance you take during the regular dance season. 

New! Holiday Production Number:
For dancers with limited time, but still want to participate, we will be having an all studio (ages 5 & up) holiday production number that will only have three rehearsals in November. This will be a quick, but fun way, for any dancer to participate in the show. This number will be the grand finale of the first act!

Holiday Production Number (Ages 5 & Up): Friday, November 2, 9 and 16 | 5:30pm – 7:00pm 
(Dancers ages 5 & 6 will be dismissed at 6:15pm)

Associated Costs & Tuition:

Dancers (ages 3 & 4):$50 tuition, $20 costume rental, additional $10 costume rental (for AcroDance)

Dancers (ages 5 & up):$75 tuition, $35 costume rental (includes two costumes)

Holiday Production Number:ages 5 & up: $50 tuition, $20 costume rental 

The tuition fee includes all 3 rehearsals and the in-studio dress rehearsal on November 17

Dancers can choose to do just the production number, the two dancing numbers, or all three    

Costumes: Costumes are not purchased for the holiday show – they are rented, per dancer. 

Tickets:Tickets go on sale in early November for the holiday performance. Each family member and/or audience member must purchase a ticket to view the performance. Tickets are $20

Rehearsal FeeWe require any dancer participating in the holiday show to pay a one-time $25 rehearsal fee per dancer. This covers the cost of our on-stage dress rehearsal and helps to keep our ticket prices from increasing substantially.   

We know that you have a lot of other commitments outside of dance – so this year, we will be having less rehearsals! Dancers will still be prepared to perform by learning combinations and routines throughout the fall that will be included in your class curriculum – this will not take away from any regular class time. We hope this will increase the number of dancers who want to participate in this fun performance!

If your dancer is interested in participating in the holiday performance, please register online through our online portal or email us.
