Welcome to our 2017 recital, SOUNDTRACK! We are very excited about our show this year and have put together all the information that you will need to know regarding dress rehearsal, pictures and both shows one and two. Please take the time to review the below information and if you have any questions please let us know!

The SOUNDTRACK 2017 dress rehearsal and show will be held at the beautiful Medina Performing Arts Center, 777 Union Street in Medina. It is next to Medina High School off Rt. 3. Please use the Performing Arts Center Entrance and park in lots J and K. You may park in the lots near the Recreation Center if the other lots are full.

Tickets will be sold differently this year. Instead of waiting in line to purchase tickets at the studio, we will be doing online ticket reservations starting Sunday, May 7. More information about the process will be coming soon. Tickets will be $20 in advance and $21 at the door. If you purchase 8 or more tickets in advance, you will receive a free show t-shirt. Anyone over 2 years of age must sit in a seat and will require a ticket. Tickets will be paid for at the time of pickup at the studio beginning May 15th. Dads involved in the Dads Dance are asked to purchase a ticket to either Show #1 or #2 in order to have the opportunity to watch the recital from a seat.

Dress Rehearsal

Our dress rehearsal is mandatory and will take place on Thursday, June 8th from 5:00-10:00 p.m. Dress rehearsal will begin promptly at 5:30pm. Dancers are asked to please arrive in their first costume with hair and make-up ready to perform. Dress rehearsal is essential for all dancers to not only practice on the big stage, but for ensuring a well-paced and smooth running show for both the performers and the audience to enjoy!

Dress rehearsal is a closed rehearsal with the exception of one parent per family using the PINK THEATRE PASS included with your show tickets. Dancers may leave for the evening or join the pass holder in the audience to watch the remainder of rehearsal once they are excused. Dancers sitting in the audience must change out of their costume, as no costumes are allowed in the auditorium. For everyone’s safety dancers will only be released to the family member presenting the GREEN

BACKSTAGE PASS included in your ticket packet. This pass will be needed for the release of every student after rehearsal and recital performance. No one will be admitted backstage during rehearsal, recital, or intermission. Thank you for your understanding.

You are allowed to take photos and video during dress rehearsal but will not be permitted during the actual show. A professional videographer will be filming the show for your convenience and lifelong memory.

SOUNDTRACK

Show #1 – Friday, June 9 at 6:30pm (dancers arrive at 6:00) Show #2 – Saturday, June 10 at 6:30pm (dancers arrive at 6:00)

On the day of the performance, please drop off your child at the check-in table at the cafeteria entrance. Students will be escorted by our volunteer staff to their designated backstage area. All students should be dressed in their first costume with a cover up over the costume (one of dad’s old button-up dress shirts works perfectly). Make-up must be applied and hair done as per the directions accompanying the costume. Please label all costumes, shoes, and belongings. Street shoes should be worn to and from the Medina Performing Arts Center.

Volunteers will be available to help with any hair style changes or make up touch-ups needed for the dancers during performance. Please pack your dancer’s stage make up, a hair brush, hair bands, bobby pins, etc. that may be needed.

We will have snacks and activities backstage to keep our dancers entertained during the performance, and they will be able to watch the show through a live video feed. Please pack a water bottle, or other clear beverage, for your child.

The end of our show features a fun, grand finale curtain call with all of our dancers. We would love for everyone to stay for this and strongly encourage all to remain until the end. However, because of their young age, dancers in the Baby Bop and Storybook Ballet classes will be allowed to leave at intermission, using our backstage pass pickup procedure. All other dancers will stay for the entire show.

Additional recital items

Pictures

Group and individual pictures will be taken at the studio on Friday, May 19th and Saturday, May 20th . A schedule will be emailed shortly. We ask that all dancers come to be a part of the group photograph even if you are not purchasing a photo package.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time in full costume, make-up and hair done for the first number to be photographed. Please drop off your dancer at the main entrance where a member of the IGNITE staff will escort them into the studio. Please have your dancer(s) wear street shoes and change into dance shoes once inside. After pictures, the teacher/assistant will escort your child out the back door where you can pick them up approximately 30 minutes after the class scheduled time.
