Our 18th annual dance recital will be held at St. John the Baptist High School in West Islip, on Sunday, June 23rd. As of now there will be two shows, a 12pm show and a 6pm show. There is also a possibility that we may have one show. If we do it would be at 2pm and it would be a much longer show. There will be a tentative order of the show posted in December, at this time you will find out what show your child will be performing in or you will find out if there will only be one show. There will be a dress rehearsal on Tuesday, June 18th beginning at 4pm. If your child cannot be part of the June 2019 recital please notify their teacher and the front desk ASAP. The information below is based on if we have two shows.
We try to accommodate all children who are in multiple classes and siblings to be a part of only one show, but due to the volume of students and multiple classes there will be many families with students in more than one show. The only families that will be given 2 free tickets are siblings who are separated in two different shows, and are not performing in any show together. This does not include students who have to be in both shows.
We will be conducting dress rehearsal differently this coming year. Students will only be allowed to have two adults accompany them into the theatre for dress rehearsal. Each student will receive two free tickets for two adults. Siblings do not require a ticket. Tickets will be given out the week before the dress rehearsal.
We will be doing the ticket lottery again this year. The ticket box will be put out the week of May 20th. The ticket slips will be drawn at the end of two weeks. Tuition has to be paid in full at the time you purchase tickets. Checks are not accepted the month June. There are no refunds after the tickets have been purchased. Further information will be given out at a later date.
Students will be measured for costumes starting November 12th. Please check on the size costume that is being ordered for your child. There will be a $10 dollar fee for any costume that has to be exchanged. All costume money is non-refundable after the costume is ordered. All costume money is due by December 21st. The prices are as follows: XSC, SC, MC are $74- and LC, SA, MA, LA, XLA are $82. There are no deposits on the costumes; they must all be paid in full by the due date.
Costumes are usually received sometime in February or March. Costumes can be ordered late, but there is a $10 dollar late fee. Photo Day will be held at the dress rehearsal. This is for individual shots only. Once your child is finished dancing then you are free to have their picture taken. You will receive more information at a later time about the recital and ticket day. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
