2014 Recital Packet
“Once Upon A Time”
Both the Dress Rehearsal on Saturday May 31st and the Recital on Sunday June 1st
will be held at the Mill Creek High School theater.
The address for the school is:
4400 Braselton Highway (Hwy. 124)
Hoschton, GA 30548
It is VERY important for all dancers to attend Dress rehearsal. The purpose of this rehearsal is to make dancers feel more comfortable on stage and ready for the big show! Please have your dancer at the theater dressed and ready to dance (costume on, stage make up and hair fixed) at least 15 minutes before your scheduled rehearsal time. In order to stay on schedule we will not be able to delay starting a class’s rehearsal to wait for students. If your dancer misses their class’s assigned time, they may miss their chance to practice on stage. Each group will practice their dance on stage 2-3 times and will then have their group picture taken. If your dancer’s class has 2 dances they will practice both dances back to back before getting their picture taken. After the group picture is taken you will be free to leave, or may stay and watch other groups dance. Feel free to take non flash pictures and videotape the rehearsal. Videotaping will not be permitted at the shows on Sunday.
Dancers will need to arrive at the theater dressed in costume and makeup 30 minutes prior to the start of the show. Dancers should not enter through the main doors of the school. Instead one parent should take their dancer to the side door located by the dressing room and sign your dancer in. There will be signs directing you to the proper door, and we will also show you on dress rehearsal day.
Dancers must remain backstage through the entire show. This is for security reasons and also because every child participates in the finale at the end of the show and gets their medal then too. We have a police officer that will be outside the dressing room for security. Following the finale please send one parent to the stage to pick up your dancer. Each show will last approx 1 hour.
** No flash photography will be permitted during the show.
This is for the safety of the dancers on stage. **
(Photographs without flash are permitted.)
Tickets for the show will be $5 each. Please tell your guests the doors to the theater will open 30 minutes prior to the show and the theater is general seating. Tickets will be available to purchase in May. There is no limit on the amount of tickets you can buy.http://gadanceunlimited.com/payments-recital/
Bouquets of flowers will be sold on recital day to purchase for your dancer. These bouquets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. To ensure you have flowers, you may pre-order them online at gadanceunlimited.com or with the attached form. Bouquets are fresh from the florist next to our Dacula studio and are $4.http://gadanceunlimited.com/payments-recital/
This year we are ordering recital shirts that are optional to purchase for your dancer. The shirts are pink and the front says… “Once Upon A Time” presented by Georgia Dance Unlimited with a castle and some dancers on it. The back will have a cast list of all of the dancers performing in the show. Shirts are $16 each. We will be taking orders for shirts on a first come first serve basis, if we have any extras they will be sold at the dress rehearsal and recital. You can order them online at gadanceunlimited.com or by filling out the attached form. You may see a picture of the shirt on our website or FB page.http://gadanceunlimited.com/payments-recital/
We need Moms to volunteer to stay backstage with the dancers during the show. If you volunteer you will need to arrive 45 minutes before the show and sit with the dancers during the entire show. When your dancer dances you will be able to go to the side of the stage to watch. If you are interested please call or email the studio…. 678-775-8113 or [email protected]
Included in this packet is information on how each class should wear their hair for the dress rehearsal and recital. We encourage you to use hair spray and gel to make your dancers hair look neat and to keep any wispy hairs away. If you have any questions about the hairstyle for your dancer’s class please ask your dancer’s teacher prior to rehearsal.
Stage Make Up:
All dancers will need to wear make up on stage. Without make up your dancer’s face will look washed out and pale under the bright stage lights. All dancers should wear red lipstick, brown eye shadow, pink blush and mascara (if you can manage to get it on your dancer). The more make up you put on your dancer the better your dancer’s features will show up on stage. Stage make up should be applied heavier than everyday make up. Your dancer should be in stage make up for dress rehearsal so that we can determine if the correct amount is used. If you have any questions about stage makeup and the correct amount to apply, please ask your dancer’s teacher before dress rehearsal.
Individual recital pictures will be taken at our Dacula studio on May 23rd and 24th by SRD photography. You may sign up for a time on their website. You will be able to view the pictures right then before you purchase them. They did a wonderful job with the photos for our winter dance show. Group pictures will be taken the day of dress rehearsal. Please respect the photographer by not taking pictures while they have the dancers posed.
