Recital 2020

Due to COVID-19, our recital has been postponed this spring. We have booked new dates with Spotswood High School, which are reflected below. Some thoughts as to adjustments (& FAQ’s!) will continue to be updated below:

Recital Guide:

Arabian Nights” Ballet
A story ballet including all our Ballet Ensemble classes, Senior Ballet Cast, and select other classes to fill our storyline and provide entertainment! This year, Junior Tap, Acrobatics II, and Senior HipHop classes will be a part of this ballet performance!
Expected show length: ~90 min. with intermission

“Arabian Nights: Debut Performance”
A condensed “junior” version of our ballet, so our preschool-age dancers can experience a story-ballet performance with limited backstage waiting time. Senior Ballet Cast will participate in this performance to guide the storyline and show you what you can expect your little dancer to learn with continued study in dance!
Expected show length: ~45 min., no intermission

“Diamonds in the Rough” Recital
This is a general recital format for our jazz, tap, lyrical, pointe, hiphop, and musical theatre classes to showcase their talents!
Expected show length: ~90 min. with intermission

-Tech Rehearsal for “Arabian Nights” will be held Saturday, July 25th
-For the moment, we plan to hold traditional performances per the schedule below. We have some small-group performance options in mind if social distancing restrictions are still in place as we move closer.
-We will plan to livestream our performances for grandparents and other family members.
-We still recommend ticket donations in the event of small-group performances, since these donations cover the cost of the facility.
-Because Miss Gail is assigning seats this year per your ticket request forms, we will group families together but separate families by a couple seats in order to maintain distance.

I never turned in my ticket request form and the deadline has passed, what should I do?
Old deadlines are now meaningless, so hold onto your form and turn it in when we reopen for classes. We will set a new deadline when we get closer to reopening. We will not take these forms virtually.

Our vacation is planned over August 1-2, we can’t be in the recital now.
We sadly expected that to happen in some cases. Unfortunately, we cannot avoid everybody’s vacation plans, so we talked with SHS about availability and hoped for the best from there.
Note that recital participation is usually mandatory. This will not be considered mandatory for this August performance.

What about costumes?
All costumes have been delivered and are at InMotion. Costume companies do not provide returns and refunds, so costumes will be given out to all our students rather than refunded. If you will not be performing in the recital due to vacation or other circumstances, we will hold a costume pickup day in August.
