HUNGER GAMES PRODUCTION NUMBER

This year's production routine for recital is inspired by the Hunger Games movies. It will also serve as a Teen dance, and there will not be a separate dance for that group this year.  Participation in the production number is open to ALL La Dance students ages 5 and up.  I strongly encourage everyone to be part of it!


There will be 3 groups for production:

Group 1 - Ages 5-8

Group 2 - Ages 9-13

Group 3 - Ages 14 & Up


Rehearsal Fee will be $35 and must be turned in (along with the sign-up form) no later than February 25, 2019.


Your child will need a black costume for this routine.  If you do not already have a black costume from previous years, ask a fellow dancer (or me) so that we can try to find you one to borrow.  As a last resort, I can order you something, but we'd prefer to reuse what we can!  Below you will find the rehearsal schedule - please make absolutely certain that you can attend ALL of these rehearsals before you sign up and commit to being part of it (absences may result in dismissal from the routine)!


​PRODUCTION REHEARSAL SCHEDULE:

RECITAL PROGRAM ADS - DUE MARCH 22ND

It's that time of year again.... PROGRAM ADS!  Each student will be required to sell a MINIMUM of 1 page worth of ads.  However, anyone that sells 2 pages worth of ads will receive 1 recital program for FREE!  These ads are meant for you to sell to local businesses.  If you or your family members choose to purchase personal ads, that is okay, too.  Business ads will be designed with the information that business provides.  If they have a logo they would like displayed, they will need to email is to me!  Personal ads may contain a short message along with a photo of your child.  Only pictures taken during our official LA Dance picture days may be used - there will be a list at the photo shoot where you will need to identify what photo you wish to use by its photo number.  Recital ads must be turned in NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 2019.

​​PICTURE SCHEDULE

We will be taking official pictures at the studio on the evenings of April 16th and April 17th.  Please refer to the schedule below to know when your child needs to be there.  Please make sure that your child is ready to be photographed when they arrive (in costume, hair done, makeup done, etc.)!

















​​We are trying to add more pictures and videos to our website and YouTube channel this year.  If you take any pictures or videos of LA Dance events throughout the year, we ask that you please take a moment to send them along to our webmaster, Marcia Russell (Caitlyn's mom).  You can email pictures to her directly using the studio email: ladancenewton@gmail.com.  You may also send a sharing link to the same email address for any pictures or videos which are too large to attach to an email.  The easiest way to share larger files is to use either Google Drive or Dropbox (both of which are free file storage and sharing sites).



​STUDIO PAYMENT METHOD INSTRUCTIONS

  • We are excited to announce that we are now able to accept your credit/debit cards for monthly payments via Square! Keep in mind, though, that a 3% service charge is added to each transaction.
  • If you are making a payment in cash, please make sure to put it in a payment envelope (which may be found at the front desk) and completely fill out the front.  Doing so insures that we know who paid the money and what exactly it is for.
  • If you are making a payment by check, please make sure that you write in the memo line what the payment is for.




If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (601) 683-4850 or (601) 513-0639!
