This is the last week to order shoes and tights.

Summer and Fall registration cards have been distributed. Please return all cards by May 25th to ensure your child’s enrollment in a particular class.

All class, costume, and dancewear fees must be paid in full by Thursday, May 25th for dancers to participate in the recital. Please make prompt payment as there are no exceptions.

An order of dances is located in the office so that each dancer will know which costume to wear first to dress rehearsal and recital. All dancers will participate in both recitals. There will be a production number at the end of the show that will include all of the dancers. “A Time to Dance,” will be held Friday, June 2nd and Saturday, June 3rd at 6:00pm. Tickets will be $8.00 each and are now available at the desk.

A professional DVD of both recitals will be made by Hannah Harris Reasoner of Shutter Leaf Studios. Group and individual pictures will be made at dress rehearsal by Michelle Goff. Order forms for pictures and dvds will be available in the office soon.

All dancers, except PreDancers, will wear their hair in a tight bun with absolutely no bangs. No jewelry (stud earrings are fine) or fingernail polish. Dancers will need stage makeup using pink lipstick, blush, eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow. Please use natural colors for eye shadow. Please come to the recital in your first costume. Head pieces need to be on the right side of the dancer’s bun.

The only dancers that are allowed in the auditorium during performances are predance, prek, and Kinder/1st. Parents will be responsible for making sure these dancers are backstage three numbers before their performance. These dancers will need to sit on the floor next to the front of the stage. Seats are for ticket holders only. A table will be assigned for each age group. Parents are needed each night to volunteer to be a class parent. Volunteers are also needed to help line up the dancer’s backstage.

PPAC recitals sell out every year. The only reserved seating is for the graduating Senior’s families. These are located in the front center aisles. Seats that are reserved before the doors open will be removed. Please do not bring flowers to the front of the stage for your dancers. Only graduating Seniors should have flowers brought to the front of the stage during recitals. PPAC strives to have a professional dance recital. In order to do this, we must remind student’s families that dance recitals are not sporting events. Yelling a dancer’s name as they take the stage is distracting for the children and the audience. It will also be captured on our video. Please remind guests of this recital etiquette. Flash photography is also not allowed for the same reasons. Professional Videographers will have cameras in several places around the auditorium, so no other video equipment should be set up by parents. Concessions will be available and all concessions are $1.00. Volunteers are needed to help both nights.
