Recital Frequently Asked Questions – 2020-2021 Season
Do I have to sign up for recital?
No student is required to participate in the recital. If you choose to participate, you willhave to sign up by paying the recital fee of $100 which is due November 13th.
How do I sign up for recital?
You sign up by paying your recital and costume fees online through the Parent Portal or payment is also accepted in the office.
When is the deadline to sign up for recital?
The deadline is November 13th without a penalty. A late fee of $25.00 per costume willbe charged for dancers who sign up after November 13th. If we can get a costume, thereare no guarantees your costume will arrive by Picture Week.
When is the Costume Fee due?
The first half is due October 16th and second half November 13th.
Why is the recital deadline so early?
The costume companies do not stock costumes and will not start making any costumes until they have been paid for in full. If we don’t order costumes by December, they will not be ready for Picture Week in April.
How will the online ticket purchase system work?
There will be a link from the Dance It Out website to the ticket purchasing website where you will purchase the tickets directly from them. During the first week when the tickets are on sale, each family will have a one code that will receive one free reserved seat. Tickets go on sale May 8that 12:00 P.M.
Why do you charge a recital fee?
Dance It Out charges a recital fee to cover the administrative costs of organizing andpreparing for a recital for over 150 students. Some of the costs that are covered are renton the theatre, professional sound and lighting equipment, backdrops, etc.
What do I get for my costume fee?
When you pay your costume fee you receive a costume and all accessories (headpieces,tights, gloves, etc.).
Why do dancers have to have tickets to the show?
For your safety, the Fire Department has set building capacity levels which are based on the number of physical seats in a building. In order to ensure that we comply with these safety rules, we need to make sure we know how many people are expected at each of our shows and that means that all persons watching a show must have a physical seat(unless they are very young and can sit on their parent’s lap – ages 3 and under). In addition, it is against Fire Department rules to allow any person to sit on the floor of an auditorium and many of our shows are nearly sold out.
Why can’t I video the show or take photos during the show?
For the safety of our dancers, we do not allow any flash photography at any of our shows. We also want to make sure that each person in the audience has a good view of the stage and their dancers. Tripods and anxious parents standing in the auditorium to take video/photos of their children disrupts the show and ruins the viewing experience for others around them.
Do I have to do the revue with every class I take?
No, you can choose to participate in the revue with any or all of the classes you take atDance It Out. **Not all classes will have a dance in the recital (ex: Power Dance,Conditioning, PrePointe).
What if I change classes after I have signed up for recital?
If you change classes after you signed up for recital but before November 13th, you can participate with your new class BUT your parent must come to the Front Desk to notify the office manager. The change will be contingent upon costume availability.
Can I keep my recital costume?
What if I choose not to do recital – do I have to quit the class now?
No. If you choose not to participate in recital, you will still learn the routine but you will be placed on the side of the formations and you will not perform it on stage with your class. Your classes will end the last week of May.
What if I bought tickets to the wrong recital? Can I exchange them or get a refund?
No. We have already decided which classes will perform in which recitals and it is published with our costume pricing. It is your responsibility to purchase tickets for the recital your child is performing in.
Can I buy recital tickets at the studio?
No, you can purchase them online or at the theater at Dress Rehearsal or before each show; however, any tickets purchased at the theater will be more expensive than online.
Can I get a refund or credit if I decide not to do recital and I’ve already signed up?
Recital fees are non-refundable and no credits are given. Once the costume fee deadline has passed (November 13th), there will be no refunds on costumes. You will be notified when you can pick up your costume.
Does my child perform in every show?
Your child will only perform in the shows where their class is listed.
