RECITAL 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!

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!

END OF YEAR DETAILS

As we are nearing the end of the dance year, here are a few things you need to know:


  • All accounts must reflect a zero balance no later the JUNE 4TH.  This includes balances owed for summer camps.  If your account still has a balance, your child will not be allowed to participate in the dress rehearsal or the recital.
  • With recital just around the corner, it is so important that your child makes it to class each week so they do not miss any final choreography for their dances or the finale.
  • Make sure to order a recital program by MAY 17TH (blue order form).  If you sold 2 pages worth of program ads, you will receive 1 free program so this would be for additional copies.  This is the only way to ensure you get this discounted price, and I cannot guarantee there will be extra copies available later on.

AUDITIONS FOR THE 2019-2020 LA DANCE COMPETITION & PERFORMANCE TEAMS

Any LA Dance student is welcome to audition for our Competition Teams or Performance Teams!  Auditions will be held on Friday, May 10th at the studio from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.  Please make sure to sign up for the auditions - the sign-up sheet is on the front desk at the studio.


Please know that membership on these teams are much more demanding than what is required of regular LA Dance students.  Make sure that you review our Competition Team and/or Performance Team pages for detailed information about what team membership is like (this includes things like: required weekly classes, required extra performances and conventions/competitions throughout the dance year, and the costs involved).  Also, please make sure to pick up a copy of the team requirements handout from the front desk at the studio so that you can review what dance techniques a dancer must demonstrate to be considered for the different teams.

Recital Program Orders are due by May 17th!


NO CLASSES WILL BE HELD ON MAY 27th!
