Recital is one week away. We are all set, except for one more rehearsal/class for all of our dancers. Just a reminder we are open this weekend, even though it is Memorial Weekend, to ensure everyone gets one last chance to practice their routines.
The dancers need to be at Northeast High School, located at 5500 16th St N, St Petersburg, FL by 12:30 p.m. so we can run each number one time on the stage. All dancers should arrive in costume and with their hair and makeup done. The doors for patrons will open at 2:00 p.m. and the show will begin at 2:30 p.m. All our tiny ballerina's, pre-dancers and any dancers who are not in ACT I will be sitting in the first couple of rows in the theatre, when we switch out to ACT II we will be switching out dancers too, so please do not try to sit in those rows. We ask that you do not use flash photography during the recital as it blinds the dancers and can cause issues as far as safety goes. We are having a professional videographer come in to tape the show, the DVDs pre-sale are $20 after the fact will be $25. We do not make any money off of these, as we want to keep the costs down, and that is why there are more expensive after the show because they burn them in quantity.
Our summer schedule is up on the website, in the studio and a link is posted on Facebook. Please check it out and let us know this week if you will be attending during the summer. We realize a lot of dancers turn into mermaids over the summer so dance is not an option. We are offering the Dance Explorations again this year as well as Workshop Wednesdays. This will give the dancers a variety over the summer and a chance to try out different things.
EXPANDING OUR STUDIO SPACE
We are very happy to announce that we are leasing the space next to our current studio so we can expand into a two studio dance school. We feel that as we have grown up our dancers we need to have more space for them to dance. The space next door will be purely a dance studio, no real seating for parents, and will give us the room we need to do more advanced leap, turns and tumbling. It will be open for the Fall/Regular Dance Season in August when school starts.
BENEFIT YARD SALE
To help offset the cost of our expansion we will be holding two benefit yard sales in the new suit during the month of June. If you have anything you would like to donate that we could sell please contact us, the more we have to sell the more we can sell. They will be held on Saturdays only on the following dates and times: June 7th from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. and June 21st from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Please come out and rummage through our stuff, you might something you just have to have.
Once again we all want to thank you, our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., for allowing us to spread the joy of dance to your children. We truly love what we are doing and hope you feel the same about coming to our studio.
See You In The Studio!
