NOTES:

IMPORTANT NOTE:                                                                                                                                                                             

** The 2024 dance recital will be more difficult and complicated than usual, (these dates turned out to be our only option at New Bremen High School) because the rehearsals and the Thursday recital will be held on school nights. I know that this is not ideal, but I believe that we can make it work! Rehearsals and Recitals will need to start at 5:30 PM. I know this will be harder for many of you as well. 

Another important detail to know is that on May 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th all costumes will need to be taken home each night and there will be no name tags placed on lockers because school will be held on the following days. On Friday, May 10th costumes may be left overnight at the school.

We have figured out the best possible scenario so that our youngest students can be home early and elementary and junior high school girls can be home on school nights at a decent hour. 

The plan is that all of the youngest girl’s performances (we’ll call them the Mini-recital students) will be in the first half of the Thursday and Friday recitals (along with some other performances). The first half will run very much like the Saturday night mini-recital runs. The youngest students will perform a simple finale at the end of the first half and then they may leave at intermission (which is estimated to be around 7:00 to 7:10 PM) each night. Parents will pick up the girls on the stage right after their finale bow and when intermission begins and take them home to go to bed.

The second half of the show will highlight the older girl’s performances and none of the youngest girls will perform then. Hopefully, the recitals will be over by 8:30 PM on Thursday and Friday night. 

Thursday and Friday night recital tickets will be sold for the entire show, even though some parents/grandparents/children may choose/need to leave at intermission. 

To save time, on Thursday and Friday night we will run the slide show immediately after the youngest students leave the stage and during intermission.  

** For Saturday night, May 11th there will be two separate recitals/performances :

A separate Mini Recital performance starting at 5:30 PM 

A separate All Star Performance starting at 7:00 PM

Tickets may be purchased separately on these nights.

 

 

Thank you for your understanding concerning how the 2024 dance recital will be configured. We’ll do our best to keep the recitals from being too long, but the recital still run at least 2.5 hours long (more likely 3 hours since there’s so many students performing and there are 8 seniors who will be graduating).
