2019 Recital...

Costumes have been ordered and recital dances have begun. We have reached the exciting and fun part of the dance year. The recital is on the church calendar and plans are moving forward. Due to our growing number of classes and students we are splitting the recital this year. One group will perform on a Friday night and the other group on a Saturday morning.

Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, and Boys Hip Hop classes
Friday, May 17th @ 6pm

Tots, Pre 1, pre 2, Pre 3, and Pre 4 classes
Saturday, May 18th @ 11am

Rehearsal for Level 1-4 and Boys will be Thursday, May 16th @ 5pm
Rehearsal for Pre 1-4 classes is still being determined
Tots will rehearse during normal class time.

We all love this time of year and all the excitement that learning new dances and costumes brings. Please know that it is very important for your dancer to not miss class unless necessary. They get behind in learning and it is hard on the other students and teacher.

Lots of recital information:

Recital Fees and Tuition:
Please stop by the office if you are unsure if you have yet paid your dancers recital fee. April tuition is currently due and May tuition will be half the month.

Picture Days:
We have 2 picture dates on the calendar for those who would like to have their dancer's picture taken in one of their dance costumes. Miss Kayley Hackney will be taking pictures on Friday, April 13th from 10:00am-5:00pm and Mr. Justin Stricklin will be taking pictures on Saturday, May 5th from 10:00am-6:00pm. The cost is $30 for 8-10 images in 1 costume that you will receive via a thumb drive or Dropbox. Sign-up sheets are posted in the waiting room.  

Dance Recital Shirt:
We are in the process of ordering the 2018 recital shirts. Our t-shirt guy is in the process of finalizing design while we finalize all the sizes that we need. Please either respond to this email or stop by the office to let us know what size you would like for your dancer. We need to know by the end of the week since he has to special order the particular brand we want. Sizing wise these are the same brand we used last year and are available in child sizes small - x-large and adult sizes small - 4-XL. If any parents are interested in purchasing a t-shirt please let us know your size. The cost is $15. 

Parent Responsibility Sign-up:
A sign-up sheet is up in the waiting room for parents to be of help on rehearsal and recital night. As a staff we can not do it all on our own, especially all the demands that both rehearsal and recital bring. We need the help of all our awesome parents. Please take a look at the sign-up sheet and choose a duty to help all of us at FFAM out. 

Tickets:
Every family has the ability to purchase a total of 8 tickets for the dance recital. This 8 includes the 2 tickets that are included with each recital fee that you paid. Once every family has had a chance to purchase their tickets we will open up the remaining tickets to those who would like more. Please don't panic if you need more than 8, we always have more tickets available and have always had tickets available the day of at the door. The cost of tickets is $5.00.   

Flowers and Bears:
This year we will be selling carnations (God's Flower) at the dance recital. The cost is $5.00 for 5 flowers. We are also selling little ballerina teddybears. You have the option of pink, purple, or blue leotard on the bear. The cost is $15 and $5 for each additional leotard for the bear. We do have one in the dance studio office if you would like to see it in person. We will order flowers to have available at the dance recital for purchase, but if you would like to be guaranteed getting flowers for your dancer please stop by the dance office and place your order. We will only order the amount of bears that are preordered and preorders will end on May 4th. Stop by the dance office to order. 

Slideshow pictures:
We need pictures of each FFAM student for our recital slide show. This slide show will be viewed midway through the dance recital. We would like every performer to be represented. Please email us a picture by May 4th. If you choose to  have pictures taken with Kaylee or Justin we will get your dancer's picture from them.  

Pizza:
Again we will be offering pizza, chips, drinks, and cookies at the dance rehearsal. We offer this service as a hope that there is less stress for parents as they are trying to balance the rehearsal and the need to feed all the kiddos. As in-up sheet is hanging in the waiting room. You are not required to preorder or even prepay, it is more for us to have a better idea of how much food we need to have available. If you are planning on going this route for dinner that night please help us out by signing up.

Hair/Make-up:
If you would like help with hair and/or make-up (make-up is not required) the teachers will have a sign-up sheet hanging in the waiting room. Each is $5

Full Dress Rehearsal:
May 11th at 4:00pm. We will begin with an important parents meeting to go over all the important information for that day and recital. That will be the time for the questions to be asked as well. We will then run through tumble tots, Acro, Finale dance (several times), we will then have the pre 1, 2, 3 classes run through their dances. After that point we will run through the recital in order. Parents are responsible for getting their little ones dressed for each of their dances.

Dance Recital:
May 12th at 2:00pm. All performers need to arrive between 1:00-1:30pm. Parents get to enjoy the whole show while our backstage helpers take care of making sure every dancer is ready to go as needed.
