REGISTRATION - Time to register for Summer and Fall Semesters! Registration information is attached to this letter. Please turn in registration forms as soon as possible. Students are not automatically re-registered for classes.

Bring a Friend to Dance Week - May 14th -17th will be Bring a Friend to Dance Week! Students are invited to bring a friend to participate in class with them. Friends do not have to wear dance clothes or shoes.

Practice, Practice, Practice - Recital Week is only four weeks away! Dancers 1st grade and up will be bringing home choreography notes to practice with at home. Class attendance is extremely important at this time of the year. If your dancer must miss class, please bring them to another class that week. Any child missing more than three lessons will not be allowed to participate in the show.

Class Fees - All class fees must be up to date before dancers participate in the recital.

Tights and Shoes - The last day to order tights and shoes will be May 15th.


Tickets for our recital "Dance Among the Rainbows" are now on sale! Miss Abby, Mrs. Amanda and I had a hard time deciding the theme for our recital this year. Lily Kate Powell came to mind and we decided that we would like to remember her with our theme.

PPAC recitals sell out every year. The only reserved seating is for the graduating Senior's families. Seats reserved before the doors open will be removed.

All dancers, except Pre-Dancers, 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 (do not use blue 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 dancers backstage.

Only graduating Seniors are allowed to 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.

NO VIDEO RECORDING OR FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY WILL BE ALLOWED AT RECITAL. Video-taping can be done at dress rehearsal only. Professional Videographers will have cameras in several places around the auditorium.

All dancers will perform in the closing number at the end of the recital.
