3-6yr old show note information and upcoming events!

Hello Everyone! Recreational Shows and Pictures this week! Here is the 3-6 year old show information that was passed out the last couple of weeks. WE are also attaching the 3-6 yr old show picture information as well as the show order. If you would like to prepay for pictures you can or you can do it at the rehearsal or even after. We take a picture of each class in their costumes as well as every child in their costumes. If you decide to order them after we will have their pictures on file.
WIth the show order please come in whatever costume is listed first for their class. PLEASE DO NOT COME IN YOUR ACRO TUMBLING COSTUME! We will not rehearse this at the dress rehearsal. However on show day you need to come in your acro tumbling costume first if you are in the Acro Preshow.
REMINDER- there are NO Regular classes at the stuido this week. Only rehearsals at Ridgeline High school in the auditorium. Please enter the school from the North doors and enter to the right (on the auditorium side). Please go directly to the dressing rooms to find who is in charge of your class and sit with them. We will use the choir room and the dressing rooms (all in the side stage hallway).

We will let you know next week what costume you need to arrive in (1st dance) then you need to bring your other costume and shoes to change in to.
This will be a CLOSED Rehearsal so the students can really pay attention to the teachers instructions and have a good rehearsal without distractions and noise.
Parents do not have to stay for the rehearsal. If you choose to stay you will need to stay in the dressing room. We will run their dance on stage and then take them to get their pictures taken in their costumes. Then we will take them to the dressing room to change into their next costume. We will also work on the finale dance at the dress rehearsal too. They need to stay their entire time block.
We will be having pictures taken in the front lobby during the dress rehearsal. If you would like to order pictures they will have ordering information there as well as the studio will email out ordering information this week. This will be a quick process of taking pictures and we cannot have distractions happening during this process or it will slow down our rehearsals.
Tuesday May 14th- Shows- Admission to the shows is free (Doors will open for seating 30 mins prior to the preshow start time) May 14th Tumbling Preshow starts at 5:30pm Dance show starts at 6:00pm. Doors will open at 5:00pm for seating and all dancers need to report to their dressing rooms 30 mins before their show starts.

Come in full costume, hair pieces, tights, shoes, hair done, and makeup for dress rehearsal as well as for the shows!
Hair- All 3-6yr old classes wear the same hair. Hair Down and curly (with a small part of hair pinned back on the dancers right. Example- bang part of hair pulled into a small elastic on dancers right. This is wear we will pin any headpieces they have with their costumes)
Makeup- Due to the lighting on the stage it is important for dancers to wear makeup on stage. Wear a light powder or foundation (depending on dancers age), simple eyeshadow (using whites, pinks, light greys, etc), black eyeliner, black mascara, Rose colored blush, red or pink lipsticks (whatever goes best with their costumes)
3-6yr old Finale Dance- At the end of the show we will do a finale dance with all of the dancers in that show. They will remain on the stage (backstage) where they will receive a medal for their performance. Please pick up your dancers backstage after the show. Reminder there is a $5 medal fee that needs to be paid before the shows.
Order of Show- We will post the order of the dances on our website by Thursday May 9th. (it will be listed on the Studio News page of our website www.danceillusionutah.com) This will help you to know what costume to come to the dress rehearsal dressed in. Also if you are in the Acro Tumbling Preshow we DO NOT practice this at the dress rehearsal due to time. Please do not show up in this costume to the dress rehearsal, come in your first dance costume. However for the performance night come in your acro costume first and then after the preshow you will quickly change into your first dance costume.
Accounts- All account balances need to be paid off in full this week (May 6th-10th) We need this done before the shows to finalize the year.
