THEA’S DANCE ACADEMY IS VERY EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT IT’S 6TH ANNUAL DANCE RECITAL WILL BE DEDICATED TO RAISING FUNDS AND AWARENESS FOR THE HEALING HOUSE AND WILL TAKE PLACE AT GROUSE ROOM  ON SUNDAY, MAY 23RD, 2021. THERE WILL BE MULTIPLE SHOWS ON THIS DAY. DETAILS ON SHOWTIMES WILL BE ANNOUNCED.

Q: Which show is my dancer in?

A: We will be breaking our Recital into 4 shows. If you have multiple dancers, please know that we did our best to split the shows in a way that puts your dancers in the same show. However, it was not possible for everyone. For those that we were not able to fit into the same show, we made sure their shows are back to back at least.

 

 

Show 1 - 11:00 AM: Tiny Tots (B), Tots (A), Tots (C), Miraculous Movers

Show 2 - 1:30 PM: Tiny Tots (A), Groovy Guys, Showstoppers

Show 3 - 4:00 PM: Kinder Boppers, Groovy Guys, Dynamic Dancers

Show 4 - 6:30 PM: Tots (B), Mighty Mini’s, MVP’s

 
  • Students in the Opening number will perform in all 4 shows.

  • Groovy Guys Hip-Hop class will perform in 2 shows. Listed above. Choose the show that works best for you to invite your family and friends to and then for the other show your dancer will just need to be accompanied by an adult and can leave after they perform.

  • Company Dancers will perform in multiple shows. Details will be sent to company members.

Q: How do I get tickets?

A: Recital tickets: Each family will receive 2 complimentary tickets to the recital. Families with children in 2 shows will receive 2 tickets to each show their dancers are in.(Anyone over the age of 3 will need a ticket to attend the recital.) Dancers will not be able to sit in the audience unless they have a ticket as well. 

You may purchase additional tickets for friends and family by filling out the Recital Ticket Order form(link below). You can also find this form at any time by logging into your gomotion account selecting >News then > Recital Ticket Order form.

General Admission Tickets are $20.  Please keep in mind that we only have limited seats in the auditorium and are expecting to sell out quickly, so tickets will not be available for purchase at the door. All tickets purchased will be held in the office and given out with your recital packet the week of rehearsals. Tickets cannot be reserved until payment is received.

 *children under the age of 3 must sit on a lap if they do not have a ticket and anyone over the age of 3 must have a ticket to enter*

*General admission tickets are not assigned seating and will be on a first-come first-served basis. Only those with VIP booth Reservations will have assigned seat/areas*

Q: How much are the VIP Booths and How do I reserve one?

A: VIP Booths/Viewing Areas: This year we will be charging one flat VIP Reservation fee which will be separate from your Recital ticket purchase.

To Reserve one of these booths, you will need to call or email our office. Once payment is received your booth will be reserved.

*Recital ticket gets you into the show only. Vip Reservation gives you access to VIP Bar areas and a designated booth/viewing area. Anyone who plans to watch from your booth must purchase a Recital ticket separately.

* VIP Booth Reservations are available until sold out*

Option 1: Downstairs Booth Rental(3 available per show): $80 Reservation fee

  • For each booth, we allow access to a maximum of 15 people.

  •  Please note that depending on how many people you allow into your booth you may have some with their backs facing the stage. However, there will be standing room in front of your booth that you can use when it is your dancer’s performance time. 

  • All 3 booths are located to the right of the general admission audience seats.

  • Anyone with a VIP side booth reservation will receive a wristband to access the upstairs bar area for ordering food/drinks.

Q: What are the hair and makeup requirements for dress rehearsal and recital day?

 

HAIR: See Females hairstyle below. Boys will simply wear their hair slicked back and out of the face.

Low ballet bun with a middle part. (I have included a photo below, to give you a better idea of how this hairstyle should look.)
 

​​For this hairstyle, you will need to:

  • Part hair straight down the middle from the forehead to the crown of the head.
     

  • Apply product, such as mousse/hairspray to give it a sleeker look
     

  • Pull back each side into 1 low ponytail in the back of the head
     

  • Twist the hair in a ponytail and wrap it into a bun and secure it with bobby pins.
     

 

MAKEUP:  See the picture above for a good example of makeup as well.

Will be done using any neutral eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, foundation, and blush as needed. For the lip color, you will need to purchase the NYX lip cream in color Rome. You can find this at CVS, Walgreens, Target, or even online.

Please remember that lighting will wash out your dancer's face if you do not apply enough makeup. It is always a good idea to apply more than you would typically use.

Q: What stockings does my dancer need?

A: The stockings Required for your dancer's costumes are not included and will need to be purchased separately. (Exception of Boys and Acro Only dancers). We will no longer be using Block stockings and instead, this year we will be offering 3 different colors for parents to choose which shade best matches their dancer's skin tone. All 3 options are available for purchase via our online Dance Store(link below). Simply copy this link into your browser and then select Stockings for Picture Day & Recital then choose the color and size you would like to purchase. You will be able to pay on this site and even have them shipped directly to you. If you would like to see these color options in person please stop by the lobby.

Q: Are there any important dates that I should be expecting as we get closer to recital?

A: We understand wholeheartedly how busy the lives and schedules of our dance families can get as the year rolls on, so we have tried to get all of our important dates organized and ready for you so you can plan other commitments. Below we have listed some of our most important “Save the Dates” with more information (including times, costumes, requirements, etc.) to be communicated via email as we get closer to the events.

Q: How do I purchase a Recital shirt?

Does my dancer need a ticket to the recital?:

A: All dancers over the age of 3 will need a ticket to sit in the audience. Please keep in mind that we are expecting full capacity, everyone taking up a seat will need a ticket. Each dance family will receive 2 tickets to be used how you would like and additional tickets can be purchased. 

Backstage Rules: Only one parent/guardian is allowed backstage per dancer. A wristband for this person will be given in recital packets. You will need to wear this wristband to enter the backstage area.

Dress rehearsal guidelines: Only one person will be allowed to attend dress rehearsal per dancer. No other friends or family will be allowed backstage or in the audience during dress rehearsal.

Parking for recital: Details will be given at a later date.

Which awards ceremony will my dancer need to attend?: This year we will have a mini awards ceremony at the end of each show. Your dancers will receive awards at the show they are in. If they are in multiple shows we will pick the show with majority of their dancers or family members.

REMINDER: Class attendance- Please help us by making sure your child is on time and in attendance to all of his/her classes. This is VITAL in ensuring that all students are ready for the recital and that our performance is a professional one. If your student misses class close to the recital, they may be required to schedule a private lesson to make up missed material.
