SHOWCASE MAY 9, 2020
HIS SHOWCASE OVERVIEW
Showcase Lists are posted in the studio in October. Students are divided into 2 shows with upper level Graded Technique students AP1-SR2 participating in both shows. All students are expected to participate in the Showcase unless you let your teacher know otherwise. Class attendance is imperative. If a student has excessive absences, it is up to the teacher’s discretion as to whether or not the student will participate in the showcase. Mini Session students will not participate in showcase. 30 minute classes participation in Showcase determined in October and will be posted at that time.
Parents of students in AP1-SR2 will be expected to volunteer at one show or in a pre/post show capacity to avoid an additional performance charge. VOLUNTEER SIGN UP >> HERE
The end of the year showcase is held at Grand Rapids Christian High School DeVos Center for Performing Arts (DCAW)
There will be 2 performance times: 1:00 and 4:30. Our goal is to have each show run approximately 120 minutes.
Recreational Students will dance in one show. Pre-Professional Graded Technique students AP1 and above dance in 2 shows. 30 minute "co-enrollment" classes are scheduled to participate in the showcase only if time allows. This will be determined in October. There will be a costume fee for 30 min classes.
We do our best to keep siblings dancing in the same shows to make performances convenient for families. There may be times when this is not possible and we apologize for the inconvenience. We schedule the shows in October. Please watch for details and let us know at that time if there are conflicts. We will do our best to work with you.
Costume Week April 20-25. Please join us for the last 15 minutes of class to receive special instructions. To keep costume charges at a minimum, we do not offer alterations.
